Backpacks!!!!!

I am looking for a pack to carry on the shuttle to the mountain. I want something small because the only things i will carry are extra gloves, face mask,and a GoPro. Maybe some other things too. I want the bag to have a safe place to carry my googles when leaving the mountain. I am also looking for the bag to be between $40 and $60. If anyone knows of a bag please let me know.
Thanks!!!!

If you aren't planning to carry anything big or heavy, you can fit all of that in your jacket/pants. Unless maybe u plan to stash the backpack? Riding with one sucks. My jacket has an inner goggle hammock that stores them around the curve of your ribs (for example).

Otherwise the above seems pretty much perfect.

At the mountain we have a home owners lounge where it is all people we know so i usually stash a bag there. The problem is i have a huge trans pack from when i skied and i don't need to carry it with nothing in it.

Suggest looking at the Osprey Karve series. They have a few different sizes depending on how much stuff you want to carry.

Go to whiskeymilitia.com and sign up there, check out the private stash. Right now they have a huge sale going on all Dakine Luggage. Pretty much all of their backpacks they have in stock there are under 40, the mission is like 22 bucks right now I think?

You're welcome

I would have said Osprey, but I don't believe it really fits the price profile. The first pack seemed the best.

Sorry didn't see the price cap until now. The first one is good, esp if you aren't going to be boarding with it on.
