Nice to see big B pumping some money into splitboarding but where are the ice axe holders on the "Snowboarding’s first split-specific pack" http://eur.burton.com/default/splitboar ... splitboard

Wow, now we can carry our splitboards on our back! Until now, that was unpossible!

Joking aside, what is with the puny carry straps? Just so they can quote a lower weight? Looks like your edges would chew through those in one trip.


Lastly, what is with pack designs trending toward a wider top and narrow bottom? Seems counterintuitive to keeping the bulk of the weight lower and closer to your CG.

Wasn't the Jones pack that came out last year splitboard specific?

I just see one zip on the side unless I am missing it so no shovel pocket? No side pockets for skins/poles? Straps are puny for sure. Seems to have less features than my daughters school pack :scratch:

I really like my jones 30l pack. Got it at the end of the season last year in a raffle so I have only used it 3 or 4 times. It seems a little heavy, but its loaded with features. The Burton pack only retails at $99. Burton really likes a healthy mark up so I'm thinking this bag probably is lacking a bit. Jones bag was going to have an airbag compatible model too. I would support Jones if your getting a new bag.
