any idea if this pack fits a 13" laptop...
any idea if this pack fits a 13" laptop plus some other stuff for my trip out west?
While it does not have a dedicated lap top pocket, yes it will fit.
so I just bought a Dakin helipro DLX 16L...
so I just bought a Dakin helipro DLX 16L base on many good review on this site.
My problem is after carrying my ski and climb 2500 feet, my shoulder is killing me and I don't feel my waist is bearing any weight at all, my friend said I should get a pack with internal frame like lowe alpine so the waist can bear weight and shoulder won't be too tired.
Does this make sense, or am I using it wrong ? any help would be appreciated.
What you could try is to put the pack on, shrug your shoulders (raise upwards), tighten waist belt and loosen the shoulder straps so that the weight is on the waist (mostly). When you un-shrug your shoulders, the weight should be mostly on your waist. Do this with a full pack. If that doesn't work, it may be that it is too short in the torso to match you.
I have a 6-year old Heli Pro that I love. This one is too small and fits me uncomfortably. I'm returning it for the 20L Heli Pro.
How large of a hydration pack can you fit...
How large of a hydration pack can you fit in this?
You can fit a 100oz in here.
A close friend went ahead and bought this for school and for a trip to go snowboarding and film, the pack was extremely helpful, and was no problem at all. Pack is comfortable to wear and looks pretty sick as well.
hey im like 5'6 and dont carry that much...
hey im like 5'6 and dont carry that much stuff should i go with the 16 or 20. also i like to hike a lot how comfortable are the skis when they are on your back
For your size you would want the 16... This bag is just a bag, it's meant to carry extra items, it DOES NOT have a ski/board carrying system built in to it... It was designed to carry the essentials on a day of heli/snowcat skiing/boarding.... It's not meant for hiking with skis/board on your back
Sorry, but contrary to Tyler's answer this bag DEFINITELY DOES have ski and snowboard carry built in. Ski carry is diagonal, with a retractable wire loop at the lower right corner of the pack and a clip strap at the top left. While it's not the best carry system out there, it works fine for short hikes and fits fat skis without any issues. For touring I would recommend a bigger pack with internal support and 'A-frame' carry capability. As for your size question, I would recommend the 16L.
does this come with a bladder or do i have...
does this come with a bladder or do i have to buy that separately?
My Heli Pro did NOT come with a bladder and I would assume this one does not as well. It's made to be "bladder ready" but "bladder sold seperately"
It does not come with a bladder.
I like this pack for multiple run trips into the BC. Well built and designed. Not too many pockets hydration compatible. Holds my fat skis with ease. Well padded on lumbar area.
Fill it up!
This is what I keep in my heli/sledding back pack everyday I go out.
how big is the medium sized pocket?

does this have an avy tool pocket, or could you fit a shovel probe ect.
if so, where is that pocket?
No it doesn't have a full time dedicated avy tool pocket... you can fit those items in the main compartment, but then room for other items is limited... This pack is intended for what it's named for... Heli or snowcat days... No tools required, just a bag for extra layers, gloves, camera's and the such... Not a full time BC bag..
Tyler is incorrect. The Heli Pro DOES HAVE a dedicated snow tool pocket with room for your shovel and sleeves for your shovel handle and probe. It is the lower exterior pocket in the picture. While I would not recommend this pack for extended touring, it is a great choice for gate-accessed backcountry laps, in-bounds hiking, cat skiing, or any day on the resort that presents a high avalanche risk.
Will this bag fit well a person of my...
Will this bag fit well a person of my size?I'm 170cm.or maybe DLX 20L will be better?
This would be more a matter of how much stuff you plan on putting in the pack. If you are just doing small tours and trips this would probably work for you. If you carry a lot of gear you may want to size up
Overall good pack. I'm 6'2 and it's a little small, but perfect for someone under 6 ft. Still i'm not gonna complain about the size but if you a picky buyer you might as well get the 20 L. Does as descripted.
is this pack to big to wear on the chair...
is this pack to big to wear on the chair lift? does it feel like your gona fall off because you sit so far on the edge?
There is always that feeling wearing any backpack on the lift
,for me anyway .But i guess it also depends how much crap you stuff in there ! I love wearing backpacks, and think its worth the risk .It should be just fine ...Cheers
i've just bought the Heli pro DLX and went to Sweden to shred some groomers. and i didn't feel like falling off the lift going up, so if you buy it i don't think you will have that problem :)
I wear mine on the chairlift if I have it with me, and I've never fallen off.
I think every chairlift does have a safety bar though..! You do sometimes feel a bit on the edge, but nothing really dangerous.
amenities are bogus
I don't see what the big deal is about the retractable ski cable deal. Nothing beats a good solid strap.
These new packs are pretty good, and the only thing I like from Dakine is the packs. However, I think the sizing has pretty much started to favor smaller figures. I'm not a huge guy, 6' and 160lb, but the old Heli Pro I had fit me much better. I like the old pack so much that I bought another.
I don't use a hydration pack, or carry my skis much, and I always keep my goggles in a Crown Royal bag for class and protection. To me, most of these amenities are unnecessary.
All Dakine packs are killer, though, and affordably priced.
great bag for boarding
just got this bag for christmas and took it boarding today. This pack is great for anybody that wants to be able to carry an extra layer, some snacks and water without being overly huge. the snowboard carry works great as well. the waterproof pocket on the hip belt is awesome for a small camera, or a cell phone so if you need to reach it quick but dont want it to get wet. overall i am extremly pleased with the pack and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about buying it
will this pack hold a shovel blade?
will this pack hold a shovel blade?
Yes, absolutely it will. The handle sits in the loop on the left side, and the blade sits in the outer most pocket of the pack. The tech specs need to be amended.
The shovel blade will fit inside the pack. Even though there's an external carry for the shovel handle, carry it inside the pack as well.
Anything you might need to perform a rescue should always go INSIDE the pack!
