Ski packs are made to do two things: efficiently carry all your alpine gear on the climb up and then disappear from your mind during the descent. Osprey's Reverb 18 accomplishes both goals.
When you're hiking uphill, a contoured frame sheet and layered backpanel distribute the load over a comfortable foam shoulder harness and removable waist strap. The pack is designed to carry either skis or a snowboard and all potential wear points are padded to protect from edge abrasion.
Essential avalanche gear is stowed in an easy-access front panel with separate pockets for probe and shovel handle. There's also an interior zippered pocket for critical small items like lip balm, car keys, or snacks.
Speaking of snacks, when you reach the top of the climb and the powder field is spread out before you, have a bite of sandwich and take a sip from the insulated hydration hose stowed in the shoulder strap. Then grab your goggles from the padded goggle pocket and drop into the untracked. The Reverb 18 will ride close and comfortable on your back as plow through the pow and get back to the lift for another lap.
