Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Black Diamond JetForce Pro Split 25L Avalanche Airbag Pack

(1/1)

I bought this to go touring in the backcountry, very love how strong and well designed it is, and it is very light comes at 6lb, wish it was easier to wire the radio but after 10 minutes it was all done.

Compartment

Black Diamond JetForce Pro Split 25L Avalanche Airbag Pack

(1/1)

I would love 1-2 additional internal zippered compartments (it has an avy pocket, goggle pocket, and main area) for repair things/food/keys/etc... maybe that's just me? If you use really short Compactor style poles you can store them inside of the pack, but if you prefer a 3-peice Expedition style pole (after about a dozen broken compactors I have returned to the expeditions) I have yet to figure out a way to store/connect them to this pack

Carry-on

Black Diamond JetForce Pro Split 25L Avalanche Airbag Pack

(1/1)

The good: it carries really well, unlike many unbalanced and bulky packs it sits and rides well. I like that you can change the trigger side (I put it on my backfoot side). After three flights with this pack (make sure you read the travel FAQ so you know what to say to TSA.

Size

Black Diamond JetForce Pro Split 25L Avalanche Airbag Pack

(1/2)

Not because the bag “floats” you like a boat, but because it needs to increase your overall size-volume enough for the nut effect to occur. Whether this difference in volume has any real-world effect is something we’ve not seen any significant proof of. It’s like helmet MIPS, they say it is better in real life, so it is? In the end, the issue of the larger bag might become moot, as we’ve heard a lot of rumor about thinner-lighter fabrics that will appear in airbag backpacks within the next few years.

Strap

Black Diamond JetForce Pro Split 25L Avalanche Airbag Pack

(1/1)

The simple clip on the crotch strap snaps easily on to the loop on the waist belt. Nice.
