July 2010. A few weeks into my summer alpine season and my new Podsac's Alpine 40 seems to be attracting more than a few admiring glances from fellow guides and clients alike. I've heard the term “Rucksack envy” twice this week. Still, looks aren't everything, so even more pleased to report it's been living up to its claim as a functional and versatile alpine pack.
