You lug gear up mountains through brutal weather conditions for one reason and one reason only--to get the goods on the way down. Built for the backcountry powder seeker, the Patagonia Descensionist 40L Backpack offers out-of-bounds skiers and riders a lightweight, yet full featured option for hauling all the gear they need for a long day in the backcountry. Cordura fabric provides burly abrasion resistance and protection from the snow in a lightweight and supple package. A dedicated avy tool pocket keeps you probe and shovel organized and easily accessible in case one of your partners gets caught in a slide. The asymmetrical spindrift collar opens wide for easy packing and closes quickly with a single tug to keep blowing snow out. A side access zipper lets you get to gear at the bottom of the pack without pulling everything else out. The removable foam back panel and padded hipbelt add support and stability when hauling heavy loads, and front straps secure your skis or snowboard when you have to bootpack.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
