The Arc'Teryx Quintic 20L Backpack is a freeride backpack for all ski and snowboard touring. The 20 liters of space this little pack provides is just right for a day in the backcountry. Small in size but big in organization and carry options lets you go about your day with just the essentials strapped to your back. While a bladder isn't included, it is still hydration compatible so a readily available drink is there when you need it, or go with water bottles stored in the Wingman™ pockets at each side. The main compartment fits a shovel, probes, and perhaps an extra layer while the top pocket is prime space for skins or goggles. Skies can attach diagonally or A-frame and a snowboard straps on via the standard vertical. Whatever it takes to get yourself some fresh powder.

ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT GUIDE
How to Find Your Foot Measurements
Arc'teryx packs are sized either in 3-length options: Short (S), Regular (R) and Tall (T), or in 2-length options: Short/Regular (SR), and Regular/Tall (RT).
Sizing refers to YOUR OWN BACK LENGTH
Measure your Back:
• Measure along the spine between the 7th cervical vertebra and the level of the hip iliac crest
• Compare this measurement to the Sizing Charts
• It is possible to interchange different size shoulder strap and hipbelt components on many Arc'teryx Packs, but this will not change or affect the back-length of the pack.
Rated 5 out of
Comfortable, top quality backpack!I purchased the Quintic 20l Arc'teryx backpack for next year's ski season and have used it for hiking over the last few weeks. It's comfortable and lightweight, yet is made with top quality materials. The compression straps are thick and sturdy, the waist and chest strap are the same. Every zippered pocket has a purpose and can fit an array of things, which I like. The shoulder straps lay very flat against your clothes and are minimal in padding - I thought this would be an issue with a couple pounds of weight in the back, but the bag is still very comfortable!
This was my first Arc'teryx product, I'm very satisfied with the price I paid, and the quality of the backpack. Looking forward to many adventures with this bag.
