Even though you know it can save your life when you're in the backcountry, it's still frustrating having to wear a clunky pack when you're shredding technical lines or dropping big cliffs. Luckily, you can streamline things and lighten your load with the Dakine BC Vest Pack. It features plenty of pockets to hold all your touring needs and a low-profile design that distributes weight more evenly, plus it's been tweaked this year to provide even more breathability for a more comfortable hiking experience. A large main pocket at the back stores your shovel and probe, while multiple strategically placed exterior pockets hold your radio, snow tools, snacks, and water. It also features interior skins pockets to help keep your glue supple and sticky. Vertical board straps and diagonal ski straps hold your shred sticks of choice when you're bootpacking, and side compression straps ensure a snug, secure fit so you almost don't even notice you're wearing a pack.
