Description

Designed for the backcountry skier or snowboarder, the Arc'teryx Silo 30 Backpack is equipped to carry all the essentials for all-day out-of-bounds powder searches. An internal shovel and probe sleeve system provides quick and easy access in the event of an emergency, while the Wrap System™ board carrier offers solid holding power for extended step-kicking sessions. No matter what board you choose they're not the easiest thing to carry; but the combination of thermoformed shoulder straps, hip and back padding, plus a HDPE frame sheet and thoracic v-stays provide comfortable support that makes long climbs comfortable. For climbs that are rewarded with an untracked run at the end, the Arc'teryx Silo 30 Backpack includes two ice axe loops and Velcro® axe keepers.

Excellent
October 23, 2008

I highly recommend this backpack, it is excellent.

Extremely Well Constructed
November 16, 2009

This pack is bomb-proof! It's large enough to go light and fit water layers, snacks, and avalanche gear for a day in the back-country, yet small enough to ride the lift up to access back-country gates. The low profile hip-belt is also key for skiing and climbing! It's removable too!

Exceeded expectations
December 31, 2008

I've gone through a lot of packs and I really like this one. Fits like a glove and you don't really feel it on your back....meaning it really becomes a part of you-which is important when snowboarding. I love the clean design which works for me in the snow. Zippers work effortlessly and I like how they have a longer grab point especially working with gloves on. The snowboard lock down straps really hold your board,it does not slide down and compresses the pack nicely. No bulk, just clean design, which is the best part. I use it for my photo equipment. I'm a photographer and I don't like photo packs on the mountain, but for on the mountain, I like mountaineering packs and this is perfect since I'm only into snowboarding. And another thing, it looks killer!

Good day pack
January 17, 2011

I recently purchased the Arc'teryx silo 30 for day long snowshoe expeditions. I decided to purchase Arc'teryx because I have had great experiences with other gear they manufactured (coat, gloves, etc...). This pack is no exception to the quality of product that they put out. This pack feels very durable, is very comfortable and tight to the back, which makes it easy to carry. This pack has enough storage space to pack some extra base layers, food, and hydration. I would recommend this as a very good quality winter day pack.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Awesome bag
January 04, 2010

I just got this bag for my boyfriend who is an advid ice climber. He LOVES it! He used it twice since Christmas, and said that everything was designed with his tools in mind, and loves the material the bag is made of. He said the size is perfect too.

large enough for a helmet
March 04, 2010

It fits everything. Layers, hydration bladder, even my helmet if I wanna switch to my beanies. Never felt so solid securing my skis or snowboard to my pack. My only complaint is that it seems pretty big (I got the regular), but then I'm 5'6 150lb.

Recommend with reservation
March 17, 2011

I have many Arc'teryx products. They are an excellent company. However, the back padding on this pack was really unusual. The padding consists of 2 areas of raised 1/4" padding with a separation of about 6" between them. The problem is the top padded section digs into the back where it ends. If the padding was continuous for top to bottom this problem wouldn't exist. Very strange for a pack and I've had probably 50 packs over time. You've got to try it with weight to see if it's for you. Everyone is different.

Sturdy, Versatile, Stylish
August 19, 2008

I'm 6'3 and the tall fits nicely. The pack is streamlined and aesthetically pleasing. It is made in the Philippines, but is sturdy and well constructed--it handles 40 pounds reasonably well. The thermoformed back panels feel quite natural/comfortable under a heavy load. The wrap system for skis/snowboard is removable. I haven't used the wrap system yet, but the materials are quite sticky/grippy. The pack is small enough to carry on a plane. My only complaint so far is that the pack is a touch too narrow.

Great Bag, several caveats
November 30, 2009

This is a very comfortable, well designed bag. I bought it as a ski/bike/hike bag. It is well laid out with multiple pockets and good compression/ski straps. The light colored interior makes it easy to find things. I also really appreciate the ability to remove the lumbar strap. My only caveat is this really is a day bag only, fitting larger amounts of gear takes some finesse. I also found that some adjustments were needed if you are wearing a helmet because the stiff top carry handle can bang against the back of the helmet. Overall, however, this is an excellent bag.

Small
July 14, 2009

I loved this pack the first time I used it, but after an entire season of use both in bounds and in the backcountry, and now into summer daytime adventures, I am not as thrilled about it. The pack is simply too small for what I need. I love the top zip and inside zip pockets, and the light interior color, which makes it easy to find things. But I think it is a waste of money to own a winter AND a summer day pack. This is great for carrying avalanche-ready gear when you are skiing in-bounds and think you might jump out for a run or two in unpatrolled areas, but that is the pack's limit. Just too specific for me. Wish I could return it and get something that is more all-around use.

Silo 30: best for snow sports
March 22, 2011

I ordered the Silo 30 in tall (I'm 6'1"). I wanted a pack for day trips in the summer and a ski pack for the winter. After inspecting the pack, I decided to send it back because it was a little on the large size for skiing (the Silo 18 would probably be better for me), and it seemed like it would be heavy and and not well ventilated on the back for summer use. I also didn't like the way the ski/snowboard straps stuck out from the back when skis are not attached. This would probably be a great snow sports pack for a lot of people and the pack is very well made.

Excellent purchase
December 31, 2010

The pack is definitely the best day pack I've ever owned. It distributes weight in amazing Arcteryx fashion. Pockets are amazingly placed.The pack was light and did not inhibit me during climbing, and it skied well without giving me any balance issues while dropping steep terrain. Overall, I definitely recommend it for day and half-day touring.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

great pack for skier and snowboarder
September 11, 2010

my friend had a same backpack in different color, so I knew how well this backpack works for ski and snowboarding. everything I need for backcountry sky fits in this backpack, so I love it!!

Very good
August 04, 2008

It's not ski season here yet, so I've only used it for photo equipment and in the city so far. I am 5' 6" and the 'Regular' is an excellent fit for me, almost custom-made. Pack sits flat on the back and keeps weight close to the body. Shoulder pads and back pad are typical arcteryx. Back pad is in two parts so it bends in the middle. I had concerns about the belt but it works with the way the lower part of the backpad is shaped and seems to be solid. I also like that it is removable for light city use. It's definitely not the same as the belt the RT series used to have, though. There is a surprising amount of pockets for arcteryx -- flat front pocket, a big lid pocket, and internal near-lid pocket, and a huge big bungee pocket for the shovel inside. The ski/board rentention system on the outside seems solid. A nice bonus for me is that it's perfect for carrying a larger tripod. A couple drawbacks. There is a hydration bladder setup, there is no water bottle pockets. I can see how it could be annoying for hiking/all-around. Also, you can't carry skis a-frame style. Overall, it should make a nice ski and travel pack for me.
