The BD Covert is a good size pack without a bunch of added stuff. I love the shape of the pack as a whole. If you get the right size, it will balance well when fully loaded. Ski carry options are well thought out. Has plenty of space for a shovel/probe and a little extra space in the safety pocket. The soft lined goggle/tech pocket at the top of the pack is roomy for a headlamp/goggles/ sunglasses and some other small items. The main pocket is easily accessible, with room for a packable insulation layer, water bottle(if not using a hydration reservoir), gloves, skins, lunch, and any snow study tools that you may have. The small pocket on the waist belt is handy for small items like a leatherman or knife. Well designed with durable zippers and handles. Good size for long multi-lap days int he backcountry or shorter days in side country, although a smaller pack might be better if you are looking to do side-country exclusively. The Covert offers versatility, which I like. I have had issues with my Avalung not staying bent at the right angle to face my mouth, it seems to be a little limp and won't stay put where I want it to. I am 5'9" with a shorter torso and made the mistake of going with M/L frame and had to switch to the S/M, which fits much better.
