These days, it seems there is a different pack for every mountain activity, whether it be resort riding, touring, or snowmobiling. Do you think it seems pointless to spend a ton of money on every single variety of pack? If you do, and you're looking for an all purpose pack that won't break the piggy bank but can still handle anything you throw at it, the Burton Rider's 25L Backpack may be your ultimate choice.
For your backcountry adventures, Burton loaded the Rider's pack with essential features. The standard vertical snowboard carry is offered, as well as a snowmobile-friendly horizontal snowboard carry. An easy-access internal shovel and probe pocket puts your avy gear close at hand, and an easy-access external shovel pocket frees up interior room if you need some extra space. A fleece-lined goggle pocket protects eye wear if you're not wearing it, and hydration compatibility means you can sip on the H2O without constantly digging around in your pack.
On the way to the mountain in the morning, the dual side beverage/accessory pockets give you some extra space for that random extra stuff you may need, and if you are just planning on using the pack for storage and not riding, you can remove the waist belt to keep things more contained. If you do end up riding with the pack, the small pockets on the waist belt give you some extra storage that can be accessed without removing the pack.
The Burton Riders Pack 25L Backpack has everything you need for your next adventure. With tons of space you can fit almost anything into its compartments. Built to be used in the backcountry, this bag can hold everything that your two hands can’t. Features like the fleece-lined goggle pocket, hydration pocket, and board straps let you have a worry free trip knowing you have everything you could possibly need. The Burton Riders Backpack will push you forward and never hold you back.

Took my bag out for first run today and it was great. Has numerous pockets for holding tools, googles, and hydration bladder. Bag is durable and holds well on my shoulders. The waist harness is great when you strap board to pack, takes the weight off your shoulders. I can see this pack being used in any situation. Whether casual or sports. Got it on sale. Great buy.
