The Totem is ideal for lift-accessed backcountry - just enough room for your avy gear, skins, water, snacks, and an extra layer. Four pockets and internal sleeves make cargo easy to separate and organize. Whatever your ski-carrying preference - diagonal, A-frame, or vertical - the Totem accommodates. Gripes: Limited expansion range on the sternum strap. Props: Hide the diagonal-ski-carrying straps when you aren't using them.
