In the flow of a full backcountry day, you interact with your pack more than any other piece of gear. And if it doesn’t work seamlessly, you end up wasting time and energy. Sized for long days deep into the backcountry, the burly SnowDrifter has a design that complements the unique demands of moving through the winter mountains under your own power. It has a dedicated compartment for snow safety tools with individual sleeves and pockets for your probe, shovel, snow saw and more. The large main compartment opens two ways—via a fast U-shaped zippered lid or a zip-open back panel to provide instant access to all your gear without unloading the pack. A separate microfleece-lined pocket keeps your goggles handy and protected from sharp edges. The suspension system incorporates heat-venting, snow-sloughing mesh on the shoulder straps, back panel and padded waistbelt for all-day carrying comfort. Front and side compression straps with locking cam buckles provide numerous carry options for you

Size & Fit
Body: 10-oz 420-denier CORDURA® 100% nylon plain weave with a polyurethane coating.
Base: 9.2-oz 940-denier CORDURA Ballistic 100% nylon with a polyurethane coating.
Both treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
