The Patagonia Snow Drifter 20L Pack is a small pack for getting out in the snow, backcountry or sidecountry style. When you're headed out for just a short trip, you don't always need to whole kit and caboodle, but you still need some essentials to make your time in the backcountry great. From extra layers to snow tools, you've still gotta stay safe out there. At 20 liters, it not only holds those important items, but runs close to the body, with the help of mesh shoulder straps, webbing waistbelt and sternum strap. That's not all, it'll even carry your skis or snowboard! Mighty impressive for a little guy.

Perfect ski packI bought this pack last month, and just took it to Colorado for a long weekend of skiing. I added a camelback hydration reservoir, and it worked like a charm. The 20L is perfect for resort skiing, if you are into true back country, you may want to get one of the larger sizes. The design of the pack is really well thought out. It's designed so that its thinner at the bottom and thicker at the top, making it easy to sit comfortably on chairlifts. I filled the hydration pack that I added, carried an extra set of goggles in the padded compartment (it was mixed conditions. I wasn't sure what kind of light we would have), added an extra set of gloves, a neck warmer, my helmet, then used the diagonal carry method to lug my skis from the parking lot to the lift. I stayed comfortable and hydrated all day.
