Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Dakine's Heli Pro Pack is the trusted pack for the serious rider. Multiple board carry-options and dedicated spots for backcountry gear. Created for charging any line, anytime, all day-long.
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.
The Dakine Chris Benchetler Team Heli Pro 20L Backpack conveniently organizes your snow gear and safety tools in a style-savvy design. This signature pack allows Mammoth local and powder aficionado, Chris Benchetler, to access the goods with everything he needs for a full day of hiking and skiing. The diagonal ski carry and vertical board carry free your hands on treacherous bootpacks where balance is paramount. Offering a safe place to stash extra layers, the pack's spacious main compartment provides a dry place for outerwear and accessories, also hosting most 15-inch laptops within its internal sleeve. This sleeve doubles as a place to store your hydration bladder (sold separately); there's a port for the bladder's tube through the top of the bag, which then routes it through the left shoulder strap for on-the-move drinking. The front organizer pocket efficiently stashes your phone/media player, writing utensils, and other miscellaneous items, also serving to hold a collapsible shovel when you're backcountry touring. In addition, the pack's side loops provide a place to hold your shovel handle when it's fully collapsed. Helping you carry your gear up the mountain, the pack's padded waist belt and sternum strap comfortably conform to your body for efficient up-hill hiking. As an added safety measure, the sternum strap doubles as a whistle to alert fellow backcountry partners of impending danger.
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.
