Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Dakine's Team Heli Pro Backpack has a vertical snowboard carry, is hydration compatible, and will hold your laptop.
Carry your board or a pair of skis in the Dakine Heli Pro Deluxe Daypack. There's even room for a backcountry shovel, climbing skins, and extra layers.
The DAKINE Heli-Pro 20L snow pack comfortably carries your load, whether you're chasing powder on the front of the mountain, riding backside bowls or just hauling gear around the village. Snug-fitting design hugs the load close to your body for better balance on uneven terrain and low-profile ease on chairlifts; compression straps further streamline the pack. Carry your snowboard in a stable and secure vertical configuration, or strap on alpine or backcountry skis diagonally; side holster secures your shovel handle or ice axe. Anatomically shaped shoulder straps and padded hipbelt help ensure all-day carrying comfort; sternum strap buckle doubles as a rescue whistle. Internal sleeve with tube exit port carries a water reservoir (sold separately) for easy hydration on the go. Non-padded laptop sleeve (fits most 15 in. laptops). Includes a zippered organizer pocket and fleece-lined goggles pocket. The DAKINE Heli-Pro 20L snow pack is made of 600-denier polyester fabric for light weight, durability and water resistance.
Sure, you can strap a shovel to your back and shoulder your boards, but you'll be thirsty, hungry, and freezing to death once you summit. And don't even think about bootpacking on a skin track. Pack up treats, layers, skins, and hydration in the Dakine Heli Pro 20L Backpack and hit the backcountry adequately prepared, so you actually have the energy to rip the descent.
