Being ready means more than just having a sleek, shiny new pair of skis. When your excursion into winter wonderland requires more but not much more than just planks and poles, look to Dynafit's RC 20 Backpack. It's small and lightweight, to make ultralight missions breezy, but it comfortably fits your avalanche gear into the easy access compartment so you can pull it out in a hot second. Dynafit's killer speed hook ski carry makes it super easy to throw your skis on your back for a quick bootpack, and the SpeedBottle shoulder strap bottle provides some extra access to your water, if the hydration bladder friendly sleeve doesn't do the job on it's own. There's also an easy ice axe holder, a breathable Air Mesh back panel, and a light hip belt for some extra support.
