Heli 12L Backpack

While there's a time and place for big bulky packs, it's nice to have something small to carry all of the essentials without throwing your balance off while you ride. The Dakine Heli 12L Backpack is the perfect low-profile pack for resort riding, cat skiing, and heli trips. Its streamlined design features an external shovel sleeve, and its main compartment is fitted with dividers for both a probe and a shovel handle. An insulated sleeve will carry a hydration bladder while saving enough space for an extra layer and beanie. A fleece-lined goggle pocket keeps an extra pair of lenses on deck for when the light changes on you. And when it's time to hoof it back up the mountain, the Heli 12L will carry skis diagonally and a snowboard vertically so your hands can stay free for more important activities.

Quality build, straps are too close

I've used it several times
5' 10"

Quality pack and I want to love it but the straps are very narrow if you have neck and shoulders. I am very happy with Dakine quality and this pack is quality but be aware if you have traps/neck the strap may be too close together and lead to abrasion on the neck.

Everything you need, nothing you don?t.

I've put it through the wringer

I picked this up for skiing in the resort and love it. I have 2 other Dakine packs that I use for touring, but they are too big/bulky for inbounds days. This bag is exactly what I was looking for. Low profile, so it?s comfy on the lift. Room for a few essentials, and not much else. But you don?t need much else! This has become a go-to part of my kit on resort days.
