Fantastic little backpack but not without flaws,
This review is from: Ogio Patrol Snow Backpack Splatter Paint Black (Sports)
I bought this with the intention of using it as a dual purpose backpack - i.e. all year round use! The great news is it's perfect for what it's built for - use on the slopes. There's plenty of thought gone into the bag and how you'll use it whilst skiing, and it feels genuinely indestructible. The not-so-great news is that it suffers for being so single-minded in its execution...there are compartments and pockets which aren't really ideal for anything other than, say, a snow shovel. And whilst the way the bag opens is great when you want quick access to your gear whilst skiing, when you're just looking for a few bits when you're staying overnight in a hotel, you've got to open the entire bag up as the top flap doesn't really give you enough access to the contents.
Still, those are minor niggles. On the whole it's a really nicely made bag that does what it says on the tin and looks low-key without appearing cheap, and that's exactly what I was hoping for.
