The versatile Patagonia Snow Drifter 30L Backpack has a dedicated compartment for snow safety tools with individual sleeves and pockets for your probe, shovel, snow saw and more, plus back-panel access that lets you easily get to your gear while the pack's still loaded. Sized for long days deep into the backcountry, the burly SnowDrifter has a design that complements the unique demands of moving through the winter mountains under your own power.
A spacious main compartment
The large main compartment opens two waysâ€"via a fast U-shaped zippered lid or a zip-open back panel to provide instant access to all your gear without unloading the pack. A separate microfleece-lined pocket keeps your goggles handy and protected from sharp edges. The suspension system incorporates heat-venting, snow-sloughing mesh on the shoulder straps, back panel and padded waistbelt for all-day carrying comfort.
Carry and compression straps
Front and side compression straps with locking cam buckles provide numerous carry options for your skis and boards. The top-mounted haul handle is reinforced and sized for gloves. Made from burly 420-denier CORDURA® 100% nylon plain weave for puncture and abrasion resistance, with an even tougher 940-denier CORDURA Ballistic 100% nylon base with polyurethane coating. Both fabrics have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
