Being ready is more than a state of mind. In the backcountry, it's about having what you need. The Burton Sidehill 18L Backpack offers the space to hold your skins and avalanche safety tools plus basics like water, goggles, and a layer for quick-hit backcountry laps. Low-profile by design, it rides well and makes finding what you need easy. There's plenty of strapping options for poles, board, and your helmet, too.

Side compression straps - The name pretty much says it all – but these straps help cinch down your bag, minimize volume, and keep your gear from banging around when active.
