These days, it seems there is a different pack for every mountain activity, whether it be resort riding, touring, or snowmobiling. Do you think it seems pointless to spend a ton of money on every single variety of pack' If you do, and you're looking for an all purpose pack that won't break the piggy bank but can still handle anything you throw at it, the Burton Rider's 25L Backpack may be your ultimate choice. For your backcountry adventures, Burton loaded the Rider's pack with essential features. An easy access internal shovel and probe pocket puts your avy gear close at hand, and an easy access external shovel pocket frees up interior room if you need some extra space. A fleece lined goggle pocket protects eye wear if you're not wearing it, and hydration compatibility means you can sip on the H2O without constantly digging around in your pack. On the way to the mountain in the morning, the dual side beverageaccessory pockets give you some extra space for that random extra stuff you may need, and if you are just planning on using the pack for storage and not riding, you can remove the waist belt to keep things more contained. If you do end up riding with the pack, the small pockets on the waist belt give you some extra storage that can be accessed without removing the pack.
