how did you attach it to your dakine backpack?

Get creative. I've seen some pretty inventive systems that just use a bit of extra webbing and some zipties. Put the pack on and then hold the avalung in place, where you can be sure to get it to your mouth. A partner can really help with this. Start by throwing a few zip ties in place. You can probably attach most of it to one of your shoulder straps. You'll be surprised how easy it is once you start!

I did not attach the Avalung to my pack, I just posted the picture with my pack to show how it fits while wearing a pack. I see no need to attach it to any pack that I'm wearing, it works just fine as is (and probably more secure than attaching to pack in the event of an avalanche).
