Mountain Hardwear Glisse ski pack

GlisseThe Mountain Hardwear Glisse is the pack formerly known as the Huckster with a few useful updates. It's an odd little pack designed specifically for skiing, with a slim profile and some other nifty features helpful to backcountry Bobs and Betties.

At just over 2,000ci capacity the size medium Glisse weighs in at a respectable 3lb 5oz. Skis are meant to be carried diagonally, tips high and right, on the beefed-up front panel, but you could go a-frame if you chose. The next pocket in holds snow safety gear, skins, shovel, etc. The main compartment has a couple of zippered mesh pockets and a fleece lined compartment for eye pro.

There's an ice axe quick-release toggle so you can remove your axe without taking the pack off, a feature that is insanely useful when you inevitably need it. Hydration pocket, side compression straps, a vertically adjustable sternum strap and two Ice Clipper loops for gear on the right waistbelt round out the features. Overall the pack carries the goods and comfortably so. What more do you need?
