The Quintic 20 is sized for minimalist backcountry ski and snowboard tours or off piste exploration. It delivers efficient, smart organization, versatile carry options, and low centre of gravity that rides comfortably on the uptrack, balances beautifully on the descent. The large, hydration compatible main compartment opens at the top for a wide point of entry, and provides dedicated storage for shovel and probes. The zippered top pocket protects goggles, and a zippered pocket stashes spare parts, snow science kit or other smaller items. Dual Wingman™ pockets at the hips stow a water bottle, windshell, pair of gloves or snacks, and are accessible while wearing the pack. Padding on the front panel protects gear from impact and carried skis’ edges. Helmets can be easily attached to the front of the pack.


Backcountry ski packs need to comfortably carry the weight on traverses and ascents, and they need to move seamlessly with the body on the descent. Made from a high tenacity N420p-HT nylon 6,6 plain weave pack cloth, the rugged Quintic has a teardrop shape that sits low and stable for excellent balance. The design wraps the body, transferring weight around the hips for an amazingly comfortable carry, even fully loaded. The lean contoured back panel keeps the load close to the body for a more stable ride, and a polyethylene framesheet and horizontal acetal rod also help bear the load and direct the weight while allowing flexibility and freedom of movement. Shoulder straps mold to the body, and a lightweight webbing belt helps minimize sway. Skis can be carried diagonally across the back or A-framed on the sides, snowboards ride vertically. The lash straps are designed to easily pull the skis exceptionally tight to the pack for a secure carry and balance while climbing.
