Essential equipment for leaving the resort behind.
All your fancy backcountry tools won't do you much good without the right pack to carry them. Be prepared for whatever you face outside the resort boundaries with the Dakine Heli Pro DLX Backpack. It's equipped with plenty of specialized pockets and straps to hold your gear and an ergonomic design that won't hold you back when you're shredding down.
The main compartment has a shovel blade sleeve and room for your probe, and loops on the exterior hold your shovel handle so your rescue tools are always easy to access. An insulated hydration pocket keeps your water from freezing, and a fleece-lined goggle pocket protects spare lenses from getting scratched. If you feel like bootpacking, you have the option of vertical or horizontal snowboard carry straps, and retractable cables hold your skis if you're on two planks. A quick-draw ice axe sleeve allows quick access to your axe if you find yourself in a hairy situation, and an integrated rescue whistle on the sternum strap can help you if you really find yourself in a pinch.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Quality. I am very pleased with this backpack. I would definitely recommend it. Worth the pennies. I got the red one which I wouldn't have normally purchased but so glad I did...
