    Details

    A streamlined pack for lift-accessed touring and heli skiing.

    Whether you're taking a chair bump to your favorite backcountry stash or you scored a seat on a cat trip, the Black Diamond Dawn Patrol 15 Backpack keeps all of your backcountry gear in tow. The from-fitting suspension system gives the pack a body-hugging fit that won't throw off your balance as you ride. The AvaLung compatible design means you can easily equip the pack with Black Diamond's AvaLung Element (sold separately), while a hydration sleeve allows you to throw a bladder in the pack when the goods require a bit more effort. A single ice axe can be attached to the front of the pack when you plan on doing a little spring mountaineering, and the pack will carry skis diagonally for the bootpack.

    Almost, Almost Absolutely Perfect.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The minimalist in me giggles in delight when I use this pack, but the dreamer wishes for one extra addition. I tend to layer, as many people do, and shed layers as the day goes on. This pack has no means of attaching a jacket, or really anything (other than ski's), to the exterior of the pack. On a pack this small, where you can't just stuff something inside, it's all the more important to have something like a pair of daisy chain style runners down the front. If you don't need them, they stay out of the way and light weight, and when you do need them, they're very helpful and convenient.
    As it stands, the fit and function is perfect (above issue aside) , and I will probably just end up adding my own runners, and hopefully they won't look horrific.

    Great Starter Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is my first dedicated touring pack and it hasn't disappointed. Plenty of space for short day excursions of either pure touring or sidecountry.ski trips, would even use it for resort skiiing if needed on big blower days. Have used all the features such as helmet carrier and Avalung attachment and worked great. Highly recommended!

    Snow not Included

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Unbelievable how many features Black Diamond crammed into this tiny bag. It will hold your skis, your helmet, your poles, your shovel, avalanche beacon, your flask of 'kool-aid', the avalung, your skins, granola bar, your hydroflask, and your emergency stash of bubble gum. Not only does it have all those features, but it also looks damn good. This bag is guaranteed to make you ski better, and look better. Contact me directly with additional questions!

    Great backpack for skiing

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    "Plenty of room for your shovel, probe, spare clothes and whisky flask and the helmet holder/basket thingy is an especially nice touch. Really comfortable to wear for extended periods of time."

    Awesome pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is an awesome backpack. Very small and stays tight to the body, while at the same time having sufficient space for gloves, snacks, etc. Not fully waterproof, but stays dry in all but heavy rain.

    Excellent side country pack

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

    Great little pack for side country / short tours. Has just enough features / pockets for half day trips, top quality construction & detailing & the fit is excellent. Seems like it will last for years as well. Very happy with this purchase.

    Unanswered Question

    Is there a sleeve for a hydration tube to stay/zip into so that the water doesn't freeze?
