Upgrade from Heli Pro backpack
Just got this bag in black to replace an old Heli Pro pack that my dog partially ate. It's larger than the Heli Pro, but still low-profile if it's not fully loaded. This should be a great pack for carrying extra gear & goods while snowboarding/skiing, or for day-hiking or short camping trips (2-3 days).
Dakine forgot to include a dedicated sleeve/pocket for the hydration bladder; it kind of just floats around in the main compartment. Maybe this won't be a problem in action, but the Heli Pro pack had a pocket for the bladder. This is really the only negative to an otherwise great backpack.
