For the really sick and twisted…factor in the specific weight for each item of your items. :shock:

Pack Osprey Switch 14 m/l
Weight 2lbs 11oz
Volume 900cubic inches 14liters
Price $98 (on sale for $69 now on the internet)

Personal Profile
155lbs (fat)
5'7'' (short)
Splitboarder (bad attitude)
Torso 21''

Sierra Nevada

What's inside…

Contents for the Ascent
Voile Shovel (I usually use their XLM shovel with telescoping handle but I used their larger scoop shovel for this experiment)
LifeLink probe
R.E.D Helmet
Splitboard crampons (unless being used)
BD Raven Pro ice axe (unless being used)
Stubai boot crampons (unless being used)
Basic First Aid kit (bandaids, guaze, antiseptic, sunscreen, lip balm, fingernail clipers, handiwipes, vicodin and ibuprofen, etc)
Swiss Army knife
3 liters of water in MSR water bag w/hose
Repair kit (extra slider pin, misc screws and bolts for bindings, duct tape, lighter, safety equipment, etc)
BD Headlamp
Anon Goggles
MH Phantom Down Jacket
MH Epic Shell
MH Shell Mitts
MH Windstopper gloves
Neck gaiter
Extra socks
Food sack (enough food for a full day)

(for this experiment I added)
MSR PockeRocket stove
Snow Peak double wall Titanium Cup
Snow Peak small butane canister

Here is the pack filly loaded with the shovel on the outside…

…and with the shovel inside.

My video camera and still camera are attached via a LowePro case with custom chest mount

Contents added for the Descent
One BD Whippet pole
One BD Expedition pole
MH brim hat
Splitboard skins

Contents removed for the Descent
R.E.D Helmet
MH Epic Shell

Here is a pic of the pack on the descent

In the words of the late Maxwell Smart..."would you believe" it all fits in a 14L/900cubic inch pack? :shock:

I really like my Osprey Switch 14, its big enough but not overkill for daytrips in my region and is small enough to take along on multiday trips with a large pack . 8)

My only complaint is on durability. Its tough but not tough as nails…but then again if it was it would add weight. “Life is a series of tradeoffsâ€Â
