The MHM Powderkeg 32 doesn't mess around. If George Mallory and the Yeti from Rudolph were to go on a winter backpacking trip together, this is definitely the pack they would use. It has all the essentials – from carry straps that can accommodate skis or snowboards to a soft-lined goggle pocket. An aluminum wire perimeter frame effectively supports the weight of your snow gear and still allows backpanel access to the inside of the pack. The dual-pivoting hipbelt accommodates body motion so you'll always feel free to explore. This pack will stand up to years of use and abuse with its EPO fabric and DWR coated front and side panels. Stash all your goods in the large front and hipbelt pockets, but forget the razor. You'll have the meanest 5 o'clock shadow money can buy when you get back from your adventures with this pack.
