Heli Pro 20L Backpack
Some backcountry missions don't require a full touring pack—for those quick, out-of-the-gate, powder-seeking missions or heli-assist days, the Dakine Heli Pro 20L Backpack is a solid choice. The pack's compact design carries a shovel, probe, and extra layer, while straps along the front of the pack carries a board or pair of skis for the bootpack. Throw a hydration reservoir in the internal sleeve to stay hydrated on the skintrack or stash a bladder of el vino in there to stay well-lubed for closing day at the resort.

Great for day adventures
This pack is pretty no-nonsense, which makes it perfect for quick bootpacks into the sidecountry and just skiing inbounds when you want to carry a lunch or shed a layer. What it lacks in bells and whistles it makes up for in materials and construction. This pack has also become my mountain biking pack and go-to for day hikes. I use it year round and it’s in excellent shape. My goggles don’t fit in the goggle pocket, but I do keep my spare lens or sunglasses in there depending on what I’m up to.

Perfect size for day touring
I purchased this pack to replace a larger pack, which I was always filling with stuff I donât end up needing. This one is great.

Everything you need for shorter tours
This is a great pack for shorter tours and slackcountry adventures. It'll hold all of your avy gear, a layer or two and food / water. I like the diagonal ski carry for bootpacks. The pack is well made, which Dakine stands by with a lifetime warranty.

Great affordable starter pack
If you're looking for a pack to get you into the backcountry, but already spent all your funds on your touring setup, check out the Dakine Heli Pro 20L! It has all the essentials -- room for your avy gear, layers, and snacks. I gave 3 stars because I think the pack would be perfect if it was offered in a women-specific fit AND had at least one hip or shoulder strap pocket for easy access to phone, sunglasses, or slopemeter.

Awesome Basic Pack
This is my go to pack for short tours and sidecountry bootpacks. I have the model from a few year back and it's still in great shape. Big enough to fit all your avy gear, water and snacks, plus any extra gloves or baselayers. Not quite big enough for your jacket or a puffy so I hook that on the outside of it. The diagonal ski carry is easy to use and very sturdy. If you're looking for a good pack that won't break the bank get this one!
