The need by snow surveyors and researchers to travel to remote snow sites by skis, snowshoes or snowmachines necessitates carrying snow tubes and survival equipment. This paper describes a new pack for carrying snow measuring equipment along with personal survival gear in a comfortable fashion and still offer protection for the equipment. The snow tube portion of the pack is removable for summer storage and allows for the main portion of the pack to be used year round. First season field use of the pack is reported and input before commercial production is solicited.
