The Dakine Heli Pro is a superb 20 litre pack for both on and off piste days allowing you to carry essentials but with a fit that will not hinder your movement. The pack is built to last with a durable Rip Stop Nylon fabric construction.
The large main zipped compartment features a sleeve for your drinks bladder with a velcro tab at the top to secure it upright and a bladder hose exit point. The two-way adjustable chest strap and webbing hip belt with hip fins pull the pack into your body giving a secure fit. The chest strap buckle also cleverly doubles up as a safety whistle. There is a front zipped pocket to organise your avalanche safety equipment or items that you require fast access to and the zipped pocket above this is fleece lined, designed to accommodate your goggles or small electrical devices.
Skis can be carried diagonally across the Heli Pro, securely attached with the retractable straps. A snowboard can be attached vertically ensuring stability and comfort as you travel between slopes. The Heli Pro will also fit a DaKine Impact Spine Protector, this can be purchased separately should you require it. A large grab handle on the top of the pack makes the bag easy to move around when its fully loaded. All in all, the Heli Pro a great choice for single days riding in the mountains.
The Squall Heli Pro 20L is a more durable version of the regular Heli Pro. Made from a super durable Cordura fabric rather than Polyester, with a waterproof PU outer coating. This makes the pack very weather resistant, however the seams are not taped so the pack is not totally waterproof.

Customer Reviews of Dakine Heli Pro 20L
Fab backpack. Ideal for the skying / snowboarding trips. Especially having to carry little ones equipment as well as my own; and other bits and bobs; I can't actually imagine being without it! It's spacious enough and very very light. Can't praise this backpack enough!
Great pack for off and on piste skiing. Used it for the dreaded Arete on Valle Blanche and rest of trip.
Excellent top compartment for goggles and 2 way main pack allowed easy access even when skis loaded ,can fit A frame or diagonal.
