I love Dakine packs. I decided to get this backpack after I a] hiked post-ski season to the top of my local ski area with my skis bungee-corded to my old school backpack a few years ago (that was an interesting experience) and b] borrowed my friend's similar pack skiing a few times and loved it. I like how it's small enough to fit my small frame (I'm 5'2, 110 lbs) but still large enough to hold stuff (food, extra clothes, etc. or a few books/binder/etc. stuff for school). I also like that it is water bladder compatible. Goggle pocket is handy too. Overall very satisfied. Plus you can't beat getting it for almost 40% off.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
good day pack

backpack has a lot of good features for a day of skiing/boarding as well as general use. Goggle pocket is nice. Great size for women. Can fit the necessities but isn't overly bulky.

It is very good product with build quality, great design and performance. It is compact, but still large. Many possibilities for use, but still easy for use

This backpack is adorable. It is also extremely useful for girls who do not like keeping their wallets, keys, etc. in their pockets on the mountain. I love the fact that it's water pack compatible. Only problem is the straps on the clips. Unless there is a way to fix this, the length of the 4 straps is way too long. I like to have my backpack flush against my back while i ride and these straps are all over the place. If anyone knows how to fix this let me know!
Great Snow Pack
May 30, 2011
This is a well-designed pack for snow outings. It's designed to carry skis or a snowboard. Because of this it has a good amount of straps/features that are only for this- using it for other outings might be annoying because the snow features add to the bulk and weight of the pack. I got the black lace print which is really cool looking. The pink accents might be too feminine for some, but I like them. Overall, this is a great pack for snow outings.
I need it to do it all from college to skiing

My brothers have the guys version of this backpack and it has been so great, I needed one of my own. I would rate the volume it holds as medium. i can get a computer and a large binder inside. The ski holders work great. While your boots probably wouldn't fit inside the back pack, your lunch and other gear would and your hands would be free to carry your boots.

I purchased this back pack recently because my old Dakine backpack finally gave out on my after many years of use. I am very happy with this purchase and the Heli Pro. It has a pretty good carrying capacity for how small the backpack really is. I love the versatility of it. Within one day, I can be carrying my books and binders around campus and then later out shredding on the slopes. My only complaint about the back pack is the lack of a water bottle holder. But in my opinion, since the pack is designed to be camel back ready, this is a forgivable feature that is easily worked around with all the buckles that you can attach a bottle to.
Love it...Life Changing

I have neck/back problems and I have a hard time carrying my skis (I'm 5ft, 110lbs) because they are HEAVY. This backpack has changed my life. I can strap my skis to the backpack and the weight is very manageable. I wish I would have bought this backpack sooner. Genius!Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
