Perfect for short day tours, cat laps, or lift-served backcountry days, the Quintic 20 Backpack is an Arc'teryx classic. It's fairly minimal, with enough room and pockets for the essentialsa shovel, probe, goggles, layers, and hydration reservoirand a rugged construction that resists tearing and water, so your gear stays safe and dry. There are straps that let you carry skis vertically or diagonally, (or a snowboard vertically) and a removable PE framesheet that provides lightweight support and structure when you're fully loaded. Arc'teryx integrated a hydration sleeve that easily accommodates a small reservoir to help you stay hydrated, along with pockets for water bottles, goggles, and accessories, and designed the Quintic to sit low and snugly against your back, so you feel balanced on the skintrack and the descent without having to fuss with your load and suspension.
