Okay, I may be going against the crowd here, but the BD packs SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
Has anyone retrofitted their ski pack with an Avalung? http://www.skiingthebackcountry.com/...g_Backpack.php
Did it get in the way when climbing? Has it been damaged while skiing or when in the back of your truck?
Alright the BD packs may not suck, but they are poorly built in comparison to some of the other ski packs.
