The Peuterey 30 is primarily a mountaineering/climbing pack, but it works fine as a daypack for skiing, especially as its extremely light.

It weighs in at 1120g, which can be reduced further by removing the hip belt and ISB board in the back to give a remarkably light and compressible pack.

However, as a climber’s pack it does mean there is no pocket specifically for avy gear, although the large internal hydration sleeve will hold a shovel and probe as well as your hydration bladder.

The removable and height adjustable lid (useful for stashing kit beneath whilst you’re on the go) has a large zipped outer pocket, and there’s also an internal zipped security pocket, whilst there are multiple tie-on points as well as ice axe and pole attachment points, and the side compression straps allow you to carry skis on the side of the pack, although a snowboard would be tricky to transport on the Peuterey.

A lightweight and supportive harness and hip belt ensure a comfortable carry, and the build quality and overall design of the Peuterey is excellent; for anyone who is into climbing, mountaineering and serious hill walking as well as skiing it would make an excellent one-stop option for year-round use.

FOR Great design, light weight.

AGAINST Not ski specific; but versatile enough to still work as a ski pack.
