Backpacks with Snowboard Carry System
I've been digging around for a medium sized backpack that is low profile and has a good snowboard carry system (vertical or horizontal - not sure I have a preference?).
I'm eying the following bags and was wondering if any of you had thoughts. Unfortunately, I can't find many, if any, reviews on any of these - and I'm especially curious how the snowboard carry system works (is the board carried on the outside of the bag or between the bag and the person's back?):
1. Ride HE Journey Backpack (20L). I really like the design of this bag but I can't find it in stock anywhere.
2. Lib Tech Hot Lap Pack (14L): Nice low profile. Hoping poles, and shovel fit in this?
3. Lib Tech Steep Hill Pack (24L): Probably the biggest I would consider. Looks like it can fit alot of stuff!
Any thoughts would be appreciated. I hope some people own these packs and have some comments.
