Dakine Heli Pro 20L DLX

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just have to say that this backpack is amazing! Enough pockets for anything I needed. Very nice padding. Used it for two straight days on the slopes in Vermont and Quebec. Fell a few times on the bag and it was fine. Relatively water resistant as well so that's an added bonus. Very good quality and also kudos to Backcountry for shipping it out fast and the $10 Liftopia coupon that was inside the box! That was super generous and I used it already to hit the slopes that weekend!

Overall, very highly recommended and durable backpack!

Hey Tanguy,

Unfortunately we do not ship orders directly to France. I would get in touch with some friends or family that you have in the USA that could receive the order for you and then forward it to your address in France.

Is the Pro II, Pro DLX, or Pro better for ski carrying?

Hey Maddy,

As far as ski carry goes they all have the same diagonal carry. What your really getting with the different models is various organizational options for the rest of your gear.

would you consider to use this as a day trip hiking pack? why /why not?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Mansquared,

The pack I use when on a day-trip hike is about half that size but it really depends on what you feel you really need with you. This bag could work because a pack is just a pack at the end of the day but the features designed into this are really planned out for winter touring.

Personally, this wouldn't be my first choice for hiking and I would only take it if it was my only choice.

If you need a larger sized pack for day hiking check out this pack:

The same as every other pack only better

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This 20L day pack is more than enough for your average side country mission and just enough for any local backcountry touring. With space left over for lunch and a change of clothes after the essentials (probe and shovel). This pack allows me to strap my board to it horizontally for rides up the canyon on the motorsickle to get that spring corn and then off to hike Brighton Basin all in the same day. This is my 3rd Dakine pack and I doubt I'll look elsewhere as long as Dakine keeps doing their thing.

SOLID PACK

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First thing I noticed with this thing is that it looks very durable. The material is bomber, and probably my favorite thing I never thought I would notice is how easy the zippers are. When I have all my avy crap packed in there, stuff strapped to the outside and whatnot...if you can find the zipper you need, it will zip super easily even with gloves on.

Kind of wish it had a rear entry to get to stuff inside, but it's definitely not a deal breaker.

Good pack

Another solid make by Dakine. I picked this up to use as a mellow backcountry pack (not super duper long days) and for side country, and it's perfect! I personally like how the zippers go all the way to the bottom, so you can lay your pack flat and pack it up easier. The shovel pocket is still big- it fits the BA B52 shovel (very large blade) and the shovel handle fits easily on the outside. I also like how the DLX has the dropdown back for a good seat. Overall, definitely like the pack!

Beg to differ

While this would be a decent pack for in-bounds days, I can't fathom using it for anything in side- or back-country. The outer tool pocket is too small to easily pack a probe and shovel handle. There's room for them, but they have to be tucked under a big lip that makes them tough to access. The last thing I want to be doing is fussing with that when I need both items. Also, I have a pair of Smith IOX goggles that didn't fit in the goggle pocket at all.

The main pocket is a pain in the butt because the zippers go all the way down past the buckles, making it hard to get closed with gloves on (reaching under the buckles). Also, if I were a boarder, I'd wonder where to put my poles.

The positives? The outside bottle pocket is a neat idea for warm days, and the main pocket can easily fit skins, first aid kit, layers, water bottle and a lunch. Seems durable, though I only used it once before deciding it doesn't work with tools.

Amazing pack

This is my favorite pack of all time. I bought a brand new camel bak bladder and it fits perfectly. The line ran through the pack strap and didn't freeze as long as I remembered to zip it back up. Its so big and roomy I could fit my fleece, jacket. and lunch in the main pocket and the outer pocket was empty (my backcountry shovel would easily fit). I couldnt fill all of the space if I tried. The fleece lined goggle pocket is perfect for my A-frames and I'm sure it would fit any othe goggle without any problem. The chest and waist straps worked flawlessly and there was even a zipper pocket on the waist strap that fit my wallet perfectly. The horizontal and vertical board carry worked great. Personally I used the horisontal carry for hiking with no one around and the vertical for walking around at the resort base or in any place with people aroud cause I tended to whack people with the horizontal. I ride a 163 board and it still never hit my head or the back of my legs while walking around. Both carry options are easy to use. I have nothing bad to say about this pack and have already recomended it to all of my friends.

Ruck my sack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Haven`t brought it to the Mountains yet, but the bag has plenty of space, fits perfect and is easy to adjust.
Bought this one to have more space and a more flat bottom, than my other Dakine bag (don`t remember the name). Got everything I wished for and is plenty satisfied!

Great Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I haven't had the chance to take this on the mountain yet, but I'm in line with all the other reviews. This thing has everything I would be looking for in a pack, and it's super stylish. I took it on a couple hour fall hike, and it was super comfortable to wear.

I agree with one other reviewer that it would be nice to have clips/storage for the lengthy straps on it, even when using the waist belt and chest belt, the slack on the straps just kind of hang around. Not a big deal by any means, but it would be nice to have a place to put them so they don't snag on a tree branch or something.

At this sale price, you should definitely go for it. Great price for a great bag.

Makes it easy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you want a bag that can hold enough gear for slack country adventures, this is the pack. Looks sick. Can hold all your avi gear, extra layer, some water, and snacks.

So I am trying to buy a snowboarding backpack for my boyfriend.
He snowboards a lot and needs a good backpack to store stuff.
He does have a bias towards aesthetics... so I can't decide between the Dakine Heli Pro DLX and the Dakine Heli Pro. The Pro has cooler patterns but the DLX has better quality features.... but Dakine overall is really good quality.... soooo.... any suggestions?

Responded on

i would say the DLX doesn't look uncool, so go with better features. worse case scenario, backcountry has a great return policy.

Responded on

I would get the DLX, the horizontal snowboard carry is AMAZING. Vertical carry is just plain uncomfortable.

love it

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

pretty stoked when i bought it and just as stoked each time I use it, fits all my gear ranging from my GoPro, extra layers, my lunch, and for longer excursions, a shovel and a probe. It fits all that and I still have extra room. great for in bounds skiing as well as sidecountry and backcountry. ski carry works well too.

Super Nice!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bag has it all. The shovel pocket is big enough to fit the shovel blade, probe and even my old trusty trekkers. The bag says its 20L, but i had the Kode 22 and this bag has much more room for extra layers, food etc. I still have yet to find a better bag for backcountry tours or resort sidecountry. The pocket on the hip belt is really handy for things you want to access easily on the hike and the ski carry works perfect!

perfect bag

This bag does it all - School - Work and Backcountry hiking! The only thing missing is a good Computer Sleeve, but it is made for the Backcountry and you normally will not bring your computer to the "cuntch" - It does have enough space to put a computer in - my Apple 15inch fits fine....

Quality over quantity

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had been using a Dakine Helipro for 5 years and it never seemed to fall apart. The only reason I'm not using it anymore is because I got a new one! These backpacks are built to last and the style is just a +. Dakine is a roots brand and has stuck with the roots. The backpacks show how the company stays true. The outerwear is the same way.
