Made with ultralight Dynex (Dyneema) fabric, the Black Diamond Cirque 30 is a workhorse pack for bigger daily missions. Although less voluminous than the 35, it has enough usable space and extensions to handle just about anything, including the Grand Traverse race. The Cirque line features a slick lid closure system that is fast to operate with one hand, even blindfolded (why are you skiing blindfolded?). The packs have tuck-away axe and ski carry straps and an optional lid extension for impressive expandability. The Cirque 30 is a lightweight, streamlined ski pack with enough storage for most folks on most days.
