The right pack to get the goods.
When all the tourons are running a muck on your home mountain, escape the crowds and ride some untracked lines with the Dakine Heli Pro DLX 24L Backpack. Compact enough to wear in-bounds and spacious enough to carry everything you need for a day in the backcountry, the Heli Pro will be your go-to pack whether you scored a day cat skiing or are earning your turns by the power of your own two legs.
This deluxe version of the Heli Pro will carry skis diagonally and a snowboard either vertically or horizontally. Zippered panels allow you to keep gear separate and organized with a separate pocket for your shovel and probe. A fleece-lined goggle pocket prevents your optics from getting scratched up when you're not wearing them, and a padded back panel and waist belt ensure top-shelf comfort while you ride.

Dakine 24L Pack Review
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm always nervous about ordering something on-line that I can't touch, feel or sample. I wanted a pack that would allow me enough space for an extra layer or to remove a layer, a hydration bladder and have some space for lunch if I so choose to carry it. But...I didn't want anything to big or bulky that would get caught on a chairlift. This pack fits the bill perfectly, the goggle pocket is fleece lined and keeps your goggles from getting busted and beat up. The pack is sleek so that it doesn't feel like your pushed off the chair when you sit down but roomy enough to carry what ever you need for the day. I've used it four times skiing and can see this as my go to pack for day hikes this summer.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Great comfortable day tour pack. I used it for backcountry split boarding. It has been working great. The extra pocket for the avy tools is great and i use it for my wet skins. Keeps everything else dry. Plenty of room for a day tour, and can be tightened down for smaller trips.
The only thing i wish is that the avy pocket had a drain for any water that gets in. That is why only 4 star instead of 5.
