Skis together straight up the middle. Diagonal rotated 45 degrees CW.
I'm getting a Switch 40 and may want to switch to the 25, so if anyone has a 25 and wants to exchange let me know

get the life-link boundary pack if you're jsut doing it for day trips and close in bc.
everyone i know in real life (i.e. not on the internet) has had horrible durability problems with da kine packs. they are swill in my experience.
the boundary pack is sweet. it is more stable than even my poacher was (edit: let alone the heli pro), more simple, more durable than da kine packs. and not as small as freakofsnow was saying. i've had liek shovel and probe, 1 ice tool, 2 water bottles, down sweater, spikes, skins, extra gloves and goggles in there, plus jacket on the back, and it carried my skis better than the poacher EVER did, regardless of how full/not full the poacher was.
wiht the last poacher that blew up on me, since i had already bought the life link i figured i'd go for a $15 upgrade to the guide pack, which has to be the WORST pack i have ever seen--it's made of super flimsy materia like the crappy back-2-school special backpacks you get for $14.99 at marshalls in september, with an overbuilt suspension system and 10 compression straps holding the stupid 3lb beavertail on there, so that in the end it weighs like 10lbs. the only thing i use it for is as an overnight/travel bag. what a peice of junk.
only drawback on the boundary is only 1 ice axe/shovel handle loop.
buy that pack instead of the da kine, be glad you won't be sending it back or asking yoru moms to sew the shoulder strap back on after 15 days of touring.

Wookey Phoenix pack
I have a Wookey Phoenix pack but lost the expedition waist belt and was wondering if you can help me?

any reconmendations for a eastern ski pack? Just big enough to hold skis (of course), an extra layer, extra gloves, multi tool, food, flask, etc? No need for a shovel, probe, beacon.

I prefer the Mammut Freeride 28 for inbounds and sidecountry.
If I am going deep, then I sport the Black Diamond Anarchist.
