THE SELL: A fully loaded day hauler without the tangle of straps. THE TEST: Though it’s packed with features (fleecy goggle pocket, four ski and two snowboard carry -options), the 32-liter PowderKeg avoids the usual webbing bonanza with a slick system of pockets and double-duty straps (one set squeezes the pack and tightens skis simultaneously). And access to the main compartment was easy, with a wide, zippered opening in the back padding. Pack carefully, though, as pockets within pockets made it easy to misplace things. THE VERDICT: With a trim cut and excellent suspension for its size, this was the most comfortable pack in the test. 3.2 lbs

Comfort: 5
Interior Access: 4.5
Ease of Use: 4
