Everything you need and nothing you don’t. Besides being a pretty sweet marketing slogan for a utopian residential community, this phrase is also an apt descriptor for Ski Trab’s Sprint.2 Pack! This pack’s streamlined 15-liter design has all the features you need to blast your way to a podium spot, short of a jetpack or personal training facility at 3,000m. It’s light enough for running or cycling but also contains obvious gestures to Ski Trab’s skimo heritage, including a helmet carry, loops for skis and ice axe, and shoulder sleeves for soft flasks. Also included are secondary internal pockets to sort out the (hopefully limited) selection of extra layers that you’ve decided to haul along on race day, and/or the keys that might prove useful should you make it back down in one piece. A magnetic sternum strap also helps avert mitten-handed mishaps. For sprint races, vertical races, partner races, or an all-morning ski touring effort with your intimidating coworkers, the Ski Trab Sprint 2 pack will have your back.
- Wrap-around style ski carry uses a plastic piece on an elastic strap that hooks to a metal catch on the shoulder.
- Helmet carry unclips from above to admit your favorite head-protector.
- Shoulder bottle pockets hold onto approximately 350-600 mL of water, sport drink, sangria, or other preferred race day hydration.
- Pole carry proves useful on via ferratas or rocky scrambles where hands are otherwise engaged.

Questions & Reviews
I've put a few hundred miles on it both on & off piste and am really blown away with its quality. Lightweight, stable, very breathable, surprising amount of storage in a small package, and feels durable so far. The ski carry is also A+, as are the various bottle/snack/accessories holding options.
You can easily use this pack for SUL backpacking/ultrarunning in the summer and long-range MTB adventures as well...all in all, very highly recommended.
The ski carry on this pack is a wrap-around bungee with a plastic clip.
There's a magnetic sternum strap and a waist strap with stash pockets on either side. Gabe posted some photos below, as well!
Let us know if you end up using this pack for this use case, we're curious too!
