Hi,

due to the fact that I mix snowshoes and split, I need to have a good backpack for carry the snowboard. I prefer clearly X carry, less painful for my back...
I would like to buy a airbag backpack, but I did not find easily backpack with x carry, do you know some ?
next year, Jones will launch his airbag pack with x carry, is someone used this x carry on the std pack ?

thx !
mike

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/pr ... mark-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)

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...

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.
