Nice sturdy pack. Fit is perfect, narrow, suited for climbing.
Clips are okay with gloves. The ice tool system does not explain it self. You don't want to think about an overcomplicated system. Replace it with loops and you have a beautiful pack.
The pack can stand a lot of abuse. The lid is helmet (neck) friendly!
Nice color.
