Ortovox Momentum 15The calling card for Ortovox is their avalanche transceivers. But a line of merino clothing and funky crankless downhill bikes are part of the product lines for the company. And Ortovox gets conventional with day and mountaineering packs.

A Ortovox Momentum 15 landed on my doorstep for testing. In keeping with the spirit of the brand, the only way to test them was during the icy cold winter months. I took it on a few day hiking expeditions and inbound skiing.

The Momentum 15 pack is designed with rip-stop nylon and a mesh harness. The main compartment is accessed through the pack's rear panel and has a pocket dedicated for a hydration bladder plus two other pockets. A hip belt with mesh pockets and a chest strap cinch up a proper fit.

With a small size of 15 liters, the Ortovox Momentum 15 is the perfect size for inbound skiing. The main compartment can fit a pair of shoes. So you can comfortable go from your car to the hill in comfort and change into your ski boots when you get to the slopes.

The hipbelt pockets carry energy gels. And snacks and a small lunch can be stowed in the front compartment.

Ortovox LogoThe Momentum 15 isn't really designed for below freezing temps since it's not equipped with an insulated compartment for the hydration bladder tubing. It's better suited for warmer weather day hiking and biking. But it still works great for warmer ski days.

Listen to a few tracks on your MP3 on a bluebird day. Ortovox even threw in a pocket dedicated specificically for a smartphone or MP3.
