Honselty one of the best packs I have ever had. I use it to ride, school , work, anywhere. Plus I get tons of looks and actually questions from people where, I got this backpack. I have it in white so it does get a bit dirty.
Dakine Heli Pack 660 cubic inch
I use this pack a lot on sidecountry (slackcountry) days when I know that I'm not going to be venturing too far from the comforts of my home resort in Utah. I holds my avy gear (shovel, probe, small 1st aid kit), an extra layer, some snacks and a 100 oz hydration bladder easily. It has decent adjustments and a good waist belt, so it doesn't bounce around on descents. I have only used the diagonal ski carry straps once but they worked great. I've also used it to carry a snowboard when hiking and it does an ok job, but the "strap on" process isn't the best in my opinion. Overall though, I really like its small size and convenience when short touring.
Great size for a day at the resort with some side-country trips, though it'd be nicer if it had a built-in Avalung. Perfect for a light amount for bootpacking - I can even fit my Volkl Kuros into the carry loop.

Does this pack have a spot for a water bottle?
There's no external water bottle sleeve or pocket. You'd have to put a water bottle in the back or attach it to the outside some other way. The pack is designed to carry a hydration bladder, and has an insulated sleeve for the hose.
Do u have any DAKINE Heli Winter Backpack...
Do u have any DAKINE Heli Winter Backpack - 660cu but in all white. If not, does anybody know where I can get one
Is this a big enough backpack for a middle...
Is this a big enough backpack for a middle school student? Can it carry your binders and notebooks?
The measurements are 20x10x3... which really isn't all that large. You would probably need to run to your locker DURING class.
Try looking for packs more in the 1000 - 1800 cu range.
Great small pack that makes it easy to sit on the lift with. I prefer the extra space and padding of my heli pro for leaving heading off the ski resort though. The quality a few years ago was better; I dislike the coated metal ski carry loop on this model. These packs do last a long time, they are a great value.
This pack is so cool. I bought it out west and used it to do a cliff several times and do some long hikes and it worked great. It holds the skis super well and the goggle holder is just the right fit. I just wish it was a little bigger because I ended up taking off a lot of layers as the day went on and I ran out of room. Overall it is a great pack.
It looks bigger than in the picture, and can even fit my huge 17.2 in. laptop. Def. a good buy, concerned about the depth though because i'll use it primarily for school books and wut not. I'll test it out in the elements this winter break =P
4.75 Stars...Almost Perfect
A good pack. Some times I wish the waist strap had a pocket in it like the Heli Pro, but I did buy this pack to be small pack where I can take it skiing, on my street bike, or downhill mtb. It does the job well. Fits well on my back and does not feel bulky. Can sit on the lift without taking it off (where they don't make you take your pack off). So for 50 bucks you cant go wrong.
where do you get the dakine 3L bladder...
where do you get the dakine 3L bladder from
Hey Kathryn, I would reccomend buying a CamelBak StoAway 100oz (3L) bladder. It comes in a sheath so it wont get punctured and the bladder and tube are both insulated so no freeze ups. Bare in mind it will take up a third of the size of this small pack when full. You can also get the smaller 70 oz bladder instead. Search the web to find one for cheap. Hope this helps. Thumbs up me if it does thanks.
Kathryn, you should be able to find a decent bladder at "http://www.backcountry.com/store/group/100000444/Water-Reservoirs.html" (sorry, you'll have to copy and paste the part inside the "").
I prefer the CameBak line as they've been the most durable for me, however, you might want to check out the Platypus offerings as well -- they're easier to fill and have cool detachable hoses and such.
Small enough to wear comfortably while riding on the lift, insulated H2O shoulder strap keeps water from freezing (blowback helps on the coldest days), holds snacks and that neckwarmer you thought you wanted but are too hot for after one run, doubles as a small pack for bike rides and hikes,
Not idealy suited for carrying skis or board for very long, mostly due to limited hip support and thus a lot of shoulder strain. Short carries go pretty well though.
Is this pack big enough to carry a shovel...
Is this pack big enough to carry a shovel and probe inside the main compartment?
Yes if that is all you were carrying. But this pack is made to fit the shovel blade on the outside of the pack and it does not really carry a probe. If you want a pack that has all the bells and whistles then I would suggest stepping it up to the heli pro.
I carry my Voile Telepro Shovel & BCA probe in this pack with no problem.
Great little pack
I recently used this pack on my trip to UT. It was great for packing my kids and my lunch for the day with a little room for spare bandana, gloves, and cliff bars, not much else. I said a great little pack. It worked very well for The Canyons which is so big you never know where you will be eating lunch. The ski carrying device worked great and was very easy to load. If you are looking for a backcountry pack look larger at the 20L Heli pack.
are there straps across the waist and chest...
are there straps across the waist and chest and if so is the waist strap padded
No chest, yes on the waist, and it's not padded, but it's not going to be a big deal considering you will only be carrying about 10 pounds.
worse every year
they were good in 05 but they have gotten worse
heli pack vs. aK 15L
Burton aK 15L is $99 but massively awesome
