Looks great. Shame it hasnt got any side straps for carrying skis then it would also make a good day touring sac. Any one know if blue ice would do this kind of add-on as a special ?
It does look like it's possible to bodge ski's on:
I'm tempted by it as a day sac for doing day routes from huts, but it seems like it might be a tidge to small to be able to carry the extras you need for sleeping in huts.
It looks a bit naff. The way the rope retainer works means you have to take the rope off to enter the main sack also. The colour doesn't do it for me either!
I didn't know it had a safety pocket with key holder though - where is it?
In answer to the comments about skis, perhaps a better option is to look at the Blue Ice 30l- this includes compression straps that can be used to attach skis, and can be removed if you want to go ultra light.
