Just because you're in-bounds doesn't mean you don't need to be prepared. The Dakine Chute Winter Pack is perfect for deep days at the resort and quick dawn patrols in the backcountry. It has a shovel pocket for easy access to avalanche gear, and its compact size won't weigh you down or feel bulky on your back. It also has an insulated hydration sleeve to prevent your water supply from freezing and a retractable ski carry cable to hold your planks when you need to do a little hiking to get to the goods.

Have questions about this product?

Have any of your staff tested this backpack? Pretty good for a day at the resort maybe with a little hike to terrain or is it worth it to go up to the Heli Pro? Any feedback would be awesome!

Brendan, I have used this pack before. Used it in the same instance you described, as a resort pack. I only used it because of how well it sits on your back on the chair. Once you get a pack the size of a Heli Pro you need to take it off every time and put it on your lap to be somewhat comfortable. This pack pushes you a little forward but, not that much, its manageable as long as you dont stuff the pack. I usually just put shovel, probe, skins, and 1 L of water in a dromedary. This way I can sit on the chair without removing the pack every time. Hope this helps!
