Dakine's 20L Heli Pro is a highly functional snowboard/ski backpack to aid you on the mountain. The vertical snowboard and diagonal/A-frame ski carry systems allow you to carry your snowboard/skis with ease whilst traversing a ridge, or keeping your hands free at apres.
The Heli Pro comes with a fleece lined goggle pocket to keep those precious lenses protected in transit and whenever the goggles aren't in use. There is a handy pocket for carrying a snow shovel and snow tools, there is also a hydration/laptop sleeve that fits most 15" laptops, and an extra front pocket for your smaller items.
The Heli Pro is compatible with the Dakine Impact Spine protector, which displaces hard impacts protecting your central back and the 25mm belt with hip wings distributes the weight off your shoulders onto your hips reducing strain and increasing support.
Overall the 20L Dakine Heli Pro backpack is the perfect option for snowboarders/skiers looking for a comfortable and compact backpack to tackle the mountain for easy transportation of their gear or be used as an everyday backpack.
Very good rucksack. Nice colour. Perfect for skiing or boarding. It's got a handy whistle built into the strap if you get lost. Would recommend.
Great backpack, loads of room in it and some great features on it!
Great backpack, a lot of space, 15'' laptop fits easily, very resillient, greate for day on the slopes.
Stoked on this backcountry daypack!
The search for the perfect pack is not easy and with so many backcountry packs out there it is difficult to know where to start. A good place is the Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L: The backpack of choice for last years Freeride World Tour. When you put the pack on the first thing you’ll notice is how comfortable it is. The shoulder straps sit well and the waist support helps to evenly distribute its weight. There is also a semi-rigid board running the length of the pack, which gives some additional back support. All up, the fit of the pack gives you good balance and it doesn’t feel like you’re carrying a days worth of gear. At 20 liters there is plenty of room for your backcountry essentials; shovel, transceiver and probe with room left for some of your must haves on the mountain: in my case a camera, water, food…oh and some $$$ for the beers at the end of the day! There are plenty of smaller pockets located all over the pack including one on the waist strap. There is also a fleece-lined pocket that is perfect for your spare goggles. The pack itself is easy to use. The main pocket has full-length zips so it is easy to open the pack right up and get whatever has slipped to the bottom of it. The ski and snowboard carry isn’t too complicated either, with the retractable cable ski carry easily dealing with 1.79m K2 Kung Fujas. There is also a water reservoir pocket and insulated sleeve which comes in handy. All up the Dakine Heli Pro DLX is perfect as an all-round daypack. It fits well and has plenty of features to cater for most needs. Best of all it comes in at an affordable price. I am totally stoked on it and would definitely recommend it. http://www.absolute-snow.co.uk/V/Dakine_HELI_PRO_Ski_Snowboard_Backpack_20L_Forest-(52539) https://www.facebook.com/gnarlyboots?ref=hl
It's Like my Mrs
Sturdy, good looking, and won't get off my back. Also it holds my sandwiches.
Amazing Product. Great communication
Ordered this product knowing I would not be available to receive the delivery. Contacted customer services and within 1 hour someone had replied and set up a logistics plan for my package to be delivered to a separate address where somebody would be able to receive it. Cannot fault the customer care. Also the backpack is pretty impressive!
This is my second helipro.
Awesome bag with loads of space to keep stuff. Loads of pockets, adjustments and ski/snowboard carry is easy. Would recommend.
worth the money
Brought for a present for my girlfriend and show loves it. We recently took a long-weekend trip to Norway and it proved invaluable. Everything we needed went into it and she even said that it was comfortable all day. and it even fit the Ryanair size regulations to take on as hand luggage! A negative aspect would be that I was hoping the laptop sleeve to be more padded but for the price it is you cannot go wrong
Really good quality
As the title suggests, really good quality backpack from Dakine, lots of room for the mountain essentials. The soft fabric lined pocket for sunglasses or goggles is really handy.
Fantastic ski/ board pack
Fantastic backpack, with plenty of room for everything i'd need for a day on the slopes. Comfortable to wear and light, and all my friends have commented on how lovely the design is.
This is a great backpack. Really comfortable to wear. Good quality fabric and zips etc. Plenty of pockets to keep all you need for a days skiing.
