April 10, 2013 at 7:35 pm #667669 mikmig 9 Posts sorry, not clear apparently… X carry : horizontal carry Mike April 11, 2013 at 7:40 am #667668 FloImSchnee 291 Posts Understood, didn’t hear of anyone wanting to carry a snowboard horizontally except for snowmobile riders. This model features horizontal carry: http://www.snowpulse.com/en/rubrique/produits/snowmobile-products/highmark-22-2/ Are you sure that back pain isn’t related to a weak backpack rather than the orientation of the snowboard? (I personally would rather buy the Snowpulse Lite 35 than the Highmark22) April 11, 2013 at 12:03 pm #667666 mikmig 9 Posts hi, thanks for your answer. 22l is too small, unfortunately…I need at least 30l. regarding my back pain, I had in the past the Deuter GLIDE, which is normally a very good and comfortable backpack…and it is not very good… the Jones one seems interresting with honrizontal carry, but 2 concerns, volume, just 30l, and the price…i do not know it yet, but… April 11, 2013 at 1:37 pm #667667 singlewhitecaveman 242 Posts I know this is not what you’re asking for, but the Mystery Ranch Blackjack has a great diagonal carry that fits any splitboard I can throw at it. The diagonal carry seems way less less tippy than vertical carry (keeps weight low). Plus you can cinch it in so you barely know it’s there. I don’t even bother A-framing anymore. The Blackjack is advertised at 42L but it’s signifcantly smaller than my BD 42L. It’s a little big for a daypack, and just big enough for an overnight. However, it has a huge shovel compartment so your rescue gear doesn;t impede access. Shit, maybe I’ll just write that review i’ve been talking about.
