A handy pack you wear as a vest always fits and feels comfortable as the load is distributed over the front, back, and sides. Multiple exterior pockets hold your radio, probe, shovel, and other tools, and interior skins pockets help keep your glue supple and sticky. You can even attach your board or skis to the back when the terrain is a little too sketchy to shoulder them. No more back-heavy, bouncing backpacks on light, fast tripsand no more vest-envy.
Slip the DAKINE BC vest over your jacket and stay as light as the powder you're chasing. It's about the most minimal way possible to comfortably haul your board or skis and backcountry gear off-piste. Carry a snowboard vertically with two straps on the back, or attach your skis with the retractable cables. Organizer pocket makes it easy to find small items; radio pocket secures two-way or avalanche beacon. Pockets for a shovel, snow tools and climbing skins keep your gear within easy reach. Hydration sleeve accommodates a reservoir (sold separately). Side compression straps help keep your load snug and stable.
