When you're ready to leave the resort behind and head far into the backcountry, the Burton AK 31L Backpack has the features you need to survive and prosper. Whether you're venturing by splitboard or snowmobile, get everything you need for the day to your secret zone with this burly bag.

Vertical snowboard straps hold your board when you're bootpacking the last stretch to the peak, and they also serve as a compression system to keep your pack as low-profile as possible. It also has a horizontal board carry option for riders traveling by sled. An easy-access shovel and probe pocket lets you get to your avalanche rescue gear as quickly as possible in case of a slide. The external pole storage holds your trekking poles when you're shredding down, and a padded waist belt keeps the pack from flopping around and throwing you off balance. It's also hydration-compatible so you can keep precious fluids handy, and a fleece-lined pocket keeps your goggles from getting scratched when you're hiking up in sunglasses.

  • 420D Cordura nylon fabric
  • Vertical board carry with compression system
  • Sled-ready horizontal board carry
  • Easy-access shovel and probe pocket
  • External pole storage

Here's what others have to say...

Can this pack easily carry a splitboard that is still split, or does it work better if the board is put back together?


This pack has the ability to carry a board vertically or horizontally but you'd be hard pressed to carry the board split. I'm sure you could rig it up, but it wouldn't be as nice to carry as a pack that has the ability to carry like the "A" frame style.

Wrong Color

    Great bag. The carrying straps for board, split skis, and poles are money. Super reinforced, strong, and easy to tighten. I started using it right away because my other backcountry bag was busted... But I was shipped the wrong color. I ordered the black one, and I got an Army Green one. It seems like this was an error on Backcountry's side, as I don't think Burton would call a bag black and make it green.


    The onething better than playoff hockey

    If you spend sometime in the backcountry and have been looking for the perfect bag, this is it. Burton kind of thought of everything in making this. Your shovel hadle and probe have their own slips that they fit neatly in. the main compartment is split in two by a draw string divider, ensuring to keep your extra gloves, down jacket, layers, lunch, or whatever, dry as you take things in and out of your pack. the zippers are sealed. there's like 18 different ways to carry your board on this thing, including strapping it to the sides if you splitboard. This has improved my experience in the backcountry 150%. I finally have enough room for a solid day roaming around. Thank god for AK
