The 5 Best Backpacks of Winter 2019-2020

Bring everything you need with these five perfect packs.

Going ultralight is rarely an option in winter: Between extra layers, extra food, larger sleeping bags, snowshoes, and more, getting out during the snowy season often requires carrying a load. These five packs, which range from 30 to 50 liters, can't get rid of the extra weight, but with features ranging from comfortable precurved hipbelts to bombproof ski carries, they sure make it easier to haul.
