I've been using the Dakine Heli Pro 20L DLX for 4 years now and loved all the features and durability of the pack. I started looking for a nice pack for my girlfriend so I didn't have to keep carrying all of her stuff around everytime we went out.
I landed on this one. It has similar features to mine with a super deep goggle pocket (room for 2 pairs), slimmer profile which fits her 5'-0" frame nicely (slightly tall). And we can stuff it with a shovel, probe and lunch for the day without looking bulky or moving around during tough runs. The cross ski carry option holds her planks firm to her back during the light hiking that we do. This is nice because mine tends to move laterally quite a bit.
This pack has a rescue whistle ("I'm too slow, wait up!!" whistle) right on the chest buckle which is nice to keep tabs on each other through any run.
Overall a perfect backpack for backcountry or long days on the slopes. Buy one!! or two...
