Great size for daytrips in the backcountry. I carry a fairly extensive emergency kit (1st aid, tools, parts, bivy sack, poop kit, etc.), 1.4L Nalgene, Thermos, food, goggles, extra puffy layer, misc. small stuff (glove liners, sunscreen, etc.), sometimes misc. mountaineering gear (short rope, biners, ice axe), a full snow-study kit, snow saw, and full avy gear. This pack fits it all very nicely.
I upgraded to the Outlaw from the Dakine Pro II and I've been really happy with the extra space. The Pro II is also a great pack but you can really see the mountaineering background in the BD product. The splitty rides great in tour mode as skis A-Frame-style, and fairly well in vertical board carry style.
The only small complaint I have had so far is that the goggle stash is a bit snug, but it's not overly vexing.
The avy tool organizer pocket is outstanding. I roll with my probe, shovel handle, and saw in the sleeves and my shovel blade and study kit in front of those. Great fit.
Another stand-out feature is the swing-arm hip belt. Comparatively it's a huge upgrade both while touring and while riding.
I'm already plotting to grab a Anarchist for multi-day trips and hut tours.
Used this for a few preseason tours and I'm really happy i choose this pack. Its got tons of room to carry all your gear, easy front and rear access into the pack and spacious and organized snow tool pocket.
The ergoActiv waist-belt is an awesome bonus too. It makes the pack move with you and makes touring and riding with a pack more enjoyable.
Awesome pack I look forward to using all season.
