    …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? 😯

    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
