When the day's just too good to spend fighting crowds at the resort, throw on the Burton AK Taft 28L Backpack, drop through those backcountry gates, and don't look back. Designed to carry everything you need on day-long backcountry missions, this pack will help you do-it-all as you reach epic lines and higher peaks. When you're bootpacking to the summit you've got vertical and A-Frame carry options, which can accommodate snowboards, splitboards, and skis. A dedicated snow-tool pocket keeps all of your avi-gear organized and within reach should you need it, and pockets for your skins and goggles further assist in storing the essentials. You've also got a removable helmet-carry that lets you tote along protection for the descent. Pole and ice-axe carries let you take on steep and gnarly terrain, while the metal frame and ergonomic design provide support on long days.
