    Hey Ladies (and smaller men),

    Just wondered what you used for overnight packs? I love my day pack (Ortovox Ascent) but need something bigger for those hut trips!
    I had gotten a deal on an Osprey Kode 42 secondhand and it really is a great pack, although it is too wide for my narrow shoulders and causes considerable collarbone pain (weight is not distributed correctly, friends say it looks far to big) so not ideal
    Do you know any good brands that have smaller women friendly packs that are split friendly (can carry board when together) I am looking around but there might be some smaller brands that might work that I don’t know about.

    S straps are a massive plus!


    I would never be able to do a hut trip with a 40L bag – no room for good food and beer! That being said, I’d check out mystery ranch packs.

    They have accessories that can help attach a board, etc. Sometimes you can just split your board and carry it like you would a pair of skis.

    I use an old Dana Designs pack with a beaver tail. It’s probably in the 80L range, but it’s comfortable and bombproof. You can still find Dana packs on ebay. Dana Designs is now Mystery ranch. I can strap my airbag pack on the back using the beaver tail. When I get to the hut, I can then use my airbag for the day trips. You can also collapse them very well and ski with the virtually empty pack.
