Arcteryx designed the Quintic 27 Backpack with a low center of gravity for extra stability from the skin up to the ski down. The main compartment has a capacity large enough for full days in the backcountry, and the U-shaped access opens up wide so you can grab what you need. Spacermesh makes the back panel highly breathable, comfortable, and lightweight.
The Quintic carries skis diagonally or as an A-frame, and splitboards or snowboards vertically. The avalanche gear compartment has slots for shovel handle, shovel blade, and probe. There's an additional pocket for a snow science kit, goggles, valuables, and electronics. Arcteryx's HydroPort slides your hydration reservoir's tube for easy access, and the two Wingman pockets secure water or food.
