Hmmm, I like that idea. I have a hotbag but it's stupidly awkward to carry, and now I have zipfit liners again, so I really need to have it with me. Thanks!

 Lunch???  ;)

 

Yeah, anyone who has a heated bag will testify that once you get one, you won't go back.

Well, I went back, because it was more of a pain to carry than I liked. Now I just have an overabundance of bags.

 

How are the straps and belt on the Sidekick?

Sternum straps are great, waist belts are just straps; adequate for travel, not the best to use for hiking.

Pretty good, but the main reason I love mine is the padded back and hip belt. It's just so much easier to carry than any others I've tried.

^^^ yeah those straps are really nice. 

 

is the inside padded? Separate compartments for stuff?

A couple of zipper pockets (larger one on outside front, smaller one inside), a sleeve inside where you can put water bladder (or laptop, or whatever), and the outside helmet holder. Rossignol makes (or, brands, to be accurate) a red one. 

 

Everyone has their own needs, of course. My priority is load distribution, lol.

yeah, it gets crazy, if I am skinning/hiking I am bringing my Avalung so that's another pack...  :D
