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.
