I grew up in Europe.
If you attach anything ON the pack, you can get beaten up by instructors, partners, guides, girlfriends, and most of your relatives. :-)
I like to put all inside the pack (except ice axe and skis).
However, if I need new ice axe, cell phone, bottle, jacket, helmet, jacket, gloves, thermarest I usually go to Mt. Seymour or other local hills and collect!
