The Heli Pack snowboard and ski women's 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 to attach your bulkier gear - such as your skis or snowboard, as well as a 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 can be used to store your laptop.
The Heli pack features a quick dry mesh padded back panel to provide comfort and support, the webbed hip belt will help distribute weight off your shoulders and onto your hips reducing the likely hood of back strain. The backpack is also compatible with the Dakine Impact Spine protector, which displaces hard impact and protects your central back.
All in all, the women's Heli Pack is a lightweight, highly functional back pack that will deliver all winter long!
Women's specific fit
Vertical snowboard carry and horizontal snowboard carry option
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
