Questions & Reviews

Question from Chris Cawley
Is this pack big enough for a "standard" shovel? BD Deploy, specifically?
Answer from Jeremy L
Hello Chris. The bag will hold a "standard" shovel but one wouldn't be able to fully utilize the pack as it's intended. You would need to undo the fabric that separates the crampon pouch from the main compartment but it would work.
Answer from Chris C
Thanks. Can you recommend "skimo" packs that will carry a real shovel? Or, real shovels that fit in skimo packs?
Answer from Cole P
Hello Chris, any of our shovels will fit in the Millet Pierra Menta 20 pack beside the Mammut Algulator Pro Light Hoe shovel. The Mammut Algulator Pro Light Shovel on the other hand fits fine in there with no issues.

Question from clarkboulder
I see that this pack does not include hydration but does it have any way to store or hang a hydration bag and route a tube in the back and shoulder?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out! The pack actually is hydration compatible. There is no specific bladder pouch per ce, but the bladder can be hung in the main compartment and has a specific system to route the tube to the outside of the pack. You could also put the bladder in the pouch that also houses the removable back frame. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

This is a great all around pack. It is awesome for training, short tours, and racing with the removable back support. The dyneema fabric where the skis rest while booting adds extra durability to the pack. The crampon pouch is also useful for having easy access to extra layers, skins, and food. There is a small pouch on the front of the pack that can fit a half full Salomon soft flask which is useful for training and longer races.
