Topic - Ski-mountaineering pack.

Fultonius - on 27 Feb 2013
I'm in the market for a ski-mountaineering pack. I already have an OMM 35l pack which I use for cragging, ice climbing and alpinism but the ski-carry loops are too narrow for my current touring setup. (tail width~ 116mm)

I would like the following features:

Diagonal and Side Ski carry. (I prefer side carry for long bootpacks but diagonal for quickly chucking the skis in. Important that it is a stable and secure carry.

Helmet carry.

Avi-kit pouch would be nice, but not essential.

I have a small pack for skins-only tours (non glacier) but need a bigger pack that can accomodate: skins, 30m/60m rope, crmpaons, axes, coutoux and all other random paraphenalia. So I'm thinking somehere in the 28-33l range.

SO far I've looked at the Osprey Code 30l, Black Diamond Axis 33l, Deuter Freeride 28.

Any other options? Please give pros and cons if you can, but even just suggestions for research would be great.
