The Heli Pack women's snowboard and ski backpack has an outstanding reputation and is therefore one of the most sought after bags in the Dakine range.
The external carry systems allow you attach your bulkier gear - such as your skis or snowboard, and your snow shovel - so you can keep your hands free. A rescue whistle is attached to the sternum strap, and a fleece-lined pocket specifically designed to protect your goggles. There is even an extra sleeve for a hydration system or your laptop.
The Heli Pack is compatible with the DK Impact Spine Protector insert, which helps to absorb and displace hard impacts and protect your central back. The 25mm web belt and hip wings also help to divert weight away from your back and onto your hips. All in all, the women's Heli Pack is a lightweight, highly functional back pack that will deliver all winter long!

Great product, not too big doubled-up as carry-on for the plane too. Very handy when 7 yo got upset and had to yomp back up v steep slope to the lifts with his skis and mine!
Good helipack bag
Love this style and dakine make superb bags. This came up too high on the back for my liking though. Would be fine on snow if can angle jacket hood ok but for use other times a bit uncomfortable.
Functional great looking bag
Very handy for carrying all the essentials for a day on the slopes. The clips keep it in place whilst snowboarding, it is very slim and comfortable, you forget that it's on your back. The insulated sleeve for the water is great too, it didn't freeze in -20C conditions!
Great piece of essential kit
Love my Heli pack, use it on the hill and day to day- it's a great lightweight size and it takes more gear than you'd think
