THE SELL: A pack that’s as easy to use as it is ultralight. THE TEST: This technical, 20-liter day-pack is all about convenience. Strapping on skis is as fast as slinging them over your shoulder—just slip the tails through one loop and clip the tips with another. So while others struggled, skis in hand, up a slippery Blackcomb climb, we marched by for first tracks. More time-savers: quick-stash sleeves for safety gear, prominent front-zip access, and twin hipbelt zipper pockets. With mesh straps and no suspension, however, heavy loads were a drag. THE VERDICT: Our favorite pack for short missions. Light and quick enough on the draw to use as a randonnée. 1.4 lbs

Comfort: 3.5
Interior Access: 4.5
