The pack that serious skimo racer's swear by. The Rapid 260 is the lightest fully functional ski mountaineering pack on the planet. The new Wire Xpress ski carrying system is crucial for booter transitions, your skis will go from on your feet to on your back in seconds without taking off the pack. There is also an additional Dyneema loop and nylon strap for carrying a second pair of skis for your partner in team races. The side entry pouch allows quick access to crampons, ski crampons or that extra puffy layer when you are out in the cold. The pack also has dedicated probe and shovel sleeves and lets not forget about the tethering system that pulls from the bottom of the pack and attaches to your partner for that extra pull during team races.
This pack is everything I was expecting and very light. Such a great pack I have even been using it for touring when not racing. Sits surprisingly well on my back whether it is empty or loaded with avi gear, an extra layer, and crampons. It has held up perfectly after using it 4-5 days a week for the last 3 months.
