Stevens Pass SlackCountry
Using the Pro2 pack at Stevens Pass WA to carry my avy gear and hydration system.
does this pack carry a snowboard horizon...
does this pack carry a snowboard horizontally?
Yes, its good for cross-carry (horizontal) and vertical when packing a snowboard.
Does this pack allow you to carry your...
Does this pack allow you to carry your skis A-frame style or just diagonal on the cable?
No A-frame option just diagonal.
This pack is perfect for a good day trip. It has everything I could want. The external shovel/probe pocket is a great idea, the ski carry is so nifty, I love how it works. The camera pocket is great for more than just a camera, I use it for carrying my multitool and other small necessities I bring with... I really love how adjustable the size is, when skiing the resort with a smaller load pulling those four straps tight makes the pack so small that I can easily ride the lift without taking it off. The hydration sleeve is a little tight making getting the reservoir in and out a little difficult but this is a small price to pay for unfrozen water.
Bottom Line: I love this pack it has everything you could ever want for a day of ripping it.
This video shows you the features of the bag being utilized.
A good day pack
A good, small pack for days of slackcountry. If you're not carrying much, the side cinches make this pack incredibly thin on your back. The waist strap is surprisingly lightweight, yet substantial(ie. not just webbing.) My only issues has been that my G3 probe (20" folded) is too long for the probe pocket. (my camp probe at 17.5." fits nicely)
Excellent pack. Would have preferred the 'A' ski-carry configuration, but cross-pack works. Comfortable to ski with...I'm hardly aware of it while skiing hard.
The Near Perfect Pack
I have been riding with this pack for almost 2 years now (I have last years model, same pack in different colorways). It is just the right size to fit all my bc gear plus some extra goods such as approach gloves, food, hydration, and and extra midlayer top. Great for day trips in the backcountry4. The various pockets keep things organized and ready to go in a flash, which is very important in an emergency! The little fanny pack on the hip belt is super handy. They even thought to add elastic rings on the straps to keep them from dangling around. I'm 6'2" and this pack fits well, does a great job of supporting heavy loads.
The back panel has no ventilation at all which makes my back super hot (kinda odd as you would think venting isn't needed on a winter pack, but it is). There isn't much support to help the pack keep it's shape so the zipper on the back panel is a p.i.t.a. when you have everything synched tight. The fact that this pack does not keep it shape also makes it a MAJOR FAIL when packed with stuff (like an extra midlayer as well as your avy gear) and you attach a board to the vertical carry system as the stowed contents makes for an oddly shaped ill fitting back panel that will give you a major back ache while hiking!
I had a dakine blade pack and loved it, but had it swiped from out of my car. So I picked up the pro 2 pack of SAC. The construction of the pro 2 is stellar so far and there are plenty of pockets for my backcountry gear plus more!
Will the BD deploy 3 shovel fit in this...
Will the BD deploy 3 shovel fit in this pack's shovel carry pocket? Also is it comfortable to carry skis on this pack when bootpacking? i have used other packs and the skis make me off balance and messes up my back. will that happen with this pack?
This pack is the most comfortable pack you can ask for while hiking. It is light weight, but still many features/pockets to it and can hold enough of your gear. I live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and hiking here means its very important to be able to stay balanced while hiking on a ridge line or on top of huge cliffs this pack holds your balance perfectly even with powder skiis over 125 underfoot. Buy this pack it's the best dakine has to offer.
Not my favorite of the Dakine Winter Packs
I actually returned this because of the detachable back panel. I get that you can use that to slide a snowboard behind it for carrying but if you detach it there is no back padding at all. Just not what I wanted. Think the Heli Pro or Pilot would have been a better choice for my needs.
can you fit a pair of boots in the pack?
can you fit a pair of boots in the pack?
Boots would be tough to carry inside this pack; they would have to be pretty small boots, and then you don't really have room for much of anything else.
I'm 5' 6" tall, will this bag suit me well...
I'm 5' 6" tall, will this bag suit me well or will it be too bulky?
I'm between -DAKINE Heli Pro 20L Winter Pack - 1200cu in- (http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/DAKINE-Heli-Pro-20L-Winter-Pack-1200cu-in/DAK0574M.html) and this one. Which one do you recommend, considering it's gonna be used for backcountry, for long days, so most probably I will be carrying food, some clothes, and water (reservoir)
I would go with this pack over the heli pro 20L. They are pretty much the same pack, but this one has a little extra room. Extra room for snacks is always nice when your deep in the backcountry!
Top of the Line
The Pro 2 is awesome! The horizontal snowboard carrier really makes this bag. I hiked alta a little while ago and this bag really made it work for me. It comfortable, not to small, not to big. And has a sick design.
I have last year's version of this backpack and I love it. I used it all last season and could not be more pleased. I am 6' 2" and 180 pounds and this pack fits me well. It is not too bulky or constrictive. This pack is durable and has enough room for all the backcountry essentials. However, being only 1600ci it doesn't have a whole lot more room for much else (a hydration pouch, some sandwiches and a extra layer of clothing and a maybe few other things). Although you could probably fit more in it than me because my survival kit takes up a lot of room. Another upside of its size is that you can take it on the lifts at the resorts without a hassle. The rear entry feature is helpful and makes it easy to get into the back pocket. I have only used the ski carry system a few times but it works well and is a great feature. The insulated hydration sleeve is nice and keeps your line from freezing but i had a hard time fishing my L shaped camelback valve through it, I'm sure a straight valve would have been much easier. The fleece lined goggle pocket is a realy nice feature though, the linig is really soft so it won't scratch your lenses. The only negative I have to say about this pack is that the hip belt camera pocket is in a poor spot. It's a nice waterproof, fleece lined pocket, but If you have a camera in it and you go down on your hip too hard you risk breaking your camera (last year i cracked my cellphone screen in it). Overall though, This pack is great and I recommend it. I am sure you will be as stoked about this pack as I am!
big and versitle
I havn't actually used this yet, but I do like the large compartments that will carry a lot's of gear. I like the ski carry system which allows for much wider skies than previous versions and seems more substantial. Goggle and camera compartments are a nice feature.
I have this pack, I'm just not sure on how...
I have this pack, I'm just not sure on how to attach the shovel to it. The description says "external shovel pocket". Which pocket is that?
Best way to tell you is to show you, so here is the Dakine site. Click the pictures until you see the one with the shovel.
if look at the picture, it on the right side of the bag. Kinda looks like a little loop.
Great pack, one small problem.
This pack is sheer awesome. More than enough space for all the stuff I would ever need to carry. Quality is top notch, all the zippers are strong, and the pockets are well thought out. The build quality really is second to none.
Now the only downfall here is that the board-carry straps were not all that well thought out. As mentioned below, the top vertical carry strap is just too tight to get around your snowboard if the bag is ~65% packed or more. Secondly, to get the board in the horizontal carry, you need to slide the board through both shoulder straps, which can be a real pain if you have to do it often or if you have bulky bindings.
Both those issues can be solved if you have a decent knowledge on how to sew. I adore this bag and give it 5 stars regardless of the carry. One of few things I feel bad for paying full price for, will be putting it through a ton of snowboard trips this year.
