    Since the Scott E1 30 L pack has choice of which shoulder strap to use for the activation trigger, apparently (from what i've read in a wildsnow comment section) you can feed a hydration bladder tube through the other strap. Anyone confirmed this setup on the 40 or 30 L Scotts? While the zippered strap pouch isn't insulated, it would still be a clean routing for a hydration tube regardless of whether i'd need to sew a tab inside the pack to hold the bladder vertical.

    In theory yes, you can feed a hydration tube through the other shoulder strap but the existing trigger cable route is not direct enough for a hydration tube. Instead it'd be best to make a small incision in the top of the pack directly opposite the end of the shoulder strap and route the tube that way. The tube would also need to pass under the avi bag etc. Your also going to need to use a bladder that's narrow enough to go down the side of the Supercapacitor unit.

    Personally I think trying to use a hydration pack with an E1 system is a pain in the ass - but then I don't like hydration packs anyway.

    I prefer to carry 1-2 500ml Camelback water bottles that neatly nestle against the side of the pack. I'm only taking one then it's above and opposite the Supercapacitor unit or if I'm taking two bottles they go one each side above the Supercapacitor unit.

    Anyone have a 40L they want to trade for a 30L? I tend to pack heavy for SAR and instructing, so this is just a little too small for my liking.

    I just got the Patrol E1 30 under the tree. It is well built, high quality materials. There is great attention to detail, almost everything is incredibly thought out. It carries impressively well. That is important because I'm looking for a backpack first and an airbag second. Scott has a philosophy of "no dangly straps evar." Neat.

    My normal basic load:

    Skins
    Extra goggles

    Some synthetic midlayer
    800 fill coat
    WM Flight Pants
    Hat
    Gloves

    300 Al + 240 carbon probes
    Little labeled flags
    G3 Avitech Shovel

    1L Nalgene
    Various snacks

    Headlamp + 2x 18650
    Medkit
    Repair kit + multitool
    set handwarmers
    Cordellette
    SOL Bivy
    Tarp

    With the above load it takes great effort to close the pack. So attached to the outside I could have my skis, poles, and shell with a compass, inreach mini, goggles, and radio inside, while I'm wearing skinning gloves, helmet, neck sock, and sunglasses while using crampons/axe. The pack does have excellent and convenient ways to attach things externally: daisy chains, loops, great axe/pole carry, good ski carry.

    But if I want to add rope and hardware and a camera... like I said, I pack heavy.

    I haven't toured with it yet. Just carried around the living room and tried to pack it several different ways.

    Just thought I'd update my own post for anyone else's interest. I rolled the dice (and lost) and decided to order the Alpride Supercap 30. It is not any bigger than the BD Jetforce Tour 26, in fact it seems smaller to me. Really nice pack, just too small for my needs. I just sold it for a loss. I'm like a financial wizard...

    Spyderjon sold me the 40 and was super awesome to deal with!!!

    I transferred the system over from the 30.

    The 40 is a much better pack for the avalanche professional. It definitely has less room than a Float 42, but it's way lighter. It's a VERY well thought out pack

    Which version of the float 42 are you comparing to? I've got the 1.0 and it has significantly less volume than 42L, realistically it's in the mid to low 30's.

    I had the old prototype Float 42 and it had more like 38 at best, maybe 36. Then I got what I have now: the all red Float 42 from 15/16 which I think was version 2 or 3 and felt like it had 42L.

    Hi, I did route hydration tube through the airbag pocket to the other shoulder strap on my Scott E1 40 and sucessfully triggered airbag inflation. I have a photo, where it's clearly seen, but I can't post it as I'm newbie on this forum.

    Alpride or Scott pack?

    Did you get the Scott pack or the Alpride E1 Supercap 40L?

    The Scott looks dialed in, but I can actually get the Alpride this season.. hard choices.
