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.
The Heli Pro 20L Backpack from Dakine might be low-profile, but it has the goods to see you through your riding days. Made from durable 600D polyester, the Heli Pro Pack has plenty of space and ruggedness to carry your daily gear. A vertical snowboard carry takes care of your ride, while the fleece lined goggle pocket keeps you seeing clearly.

Take the lift, the chopper, or the skins to the top of that mountain, either way, you'll need your equipment to take the fun way down. The Dakine Heli Pro 20L Backpack was built with the dedicated shredder in mind - with room for a full day's worth of riding along with a BC gear pocket and ski/snowboard carry, the Heli Pro legacy continues in this re-design of the legendary pack.
If you're heading into the backcountry but don't want a massive load on your back, look to the DAKINE Heli Pro 20L Backpack. With 1200 cubic inches of interior space, it gives you a not-too big, but not-too small option for forays into the great white yonder. So pack some extra clothes and a lunch into the main compartment, slide your avie shovel and probe into the quick-access front pocket, and skin up. If you have to hike, strap your board(s) in the ski or snowboard carry systems. DAKINE tricked out this pack with a fleece-lined goggle pocket, a waterproof camera pocket, and an insulated sleeve for your hydration system.
