This is my favorite pack of all time. I bought a brand new camel bak bladder and it fits perfectly. The line ran through the pack strap and didn't freeze as long as I remembered to zip it back up. Its so big and roomy I could fit my fleece, jacket. and lunch in the main pocket and the outer pocket was empty (my backcountry shovel would easily fit). I couldnt fill all of the space if I tried. The fleece lined goggle pocket is perfect for my A-frames and I'm sure it would fit any othe goggle without any problem. The chest and waist straps worked flawlessly and there was even a zipper pocket on the waist strap that fit my wallet perfectly. The horizontal and vertical board carry worked great. Personally I used the horisontal carry for hiking with no one around and the vertical for walking around at the resort base or in any place with people aroud cause I tended to whack people with the horizontal. I ride a 163 board and it still never hit my head or the back of my legs while walking around. Both carry options are easy to use. I have nothing bad to say about this pack and have already recomended it to all of my friends.

I was trying to decide between this and the Pro II Backpack. The tag on the Pro II showed that it has the vertical snowboard carry. The tag lies. The Heli Pro DLX has the vertical carry.
The Pro II has a back entry area that to get into the main compartment. The top zipper doesn't open very wide and is quite annoying. It is even more annoying if you have a hydration bladder in there because the hose will be in the way. The other pocket is nice though because it has a holder for your shovel handle and your probe to keep them organized and the shovel blade fits in there too!
I like the Heli Pro DLX better because it has the vertical snowboard carry option if you don't want to carry your board vertically, the top zipper opens as far as a normal backpack does, and has a deployable drink holder on the side. It isn't as organized withe shovel and probe as the Pro II, but the other features make it ok.

I haven't had the chance to take this on the mountain yet, but I'm in line with all the other reviews. This thing has everything I would be looking for in a pack, and it's super stylish. I took it on a couple hour fall hike, and it was super comfortable to wear.
I agree with one other reviewer that it would be nice to have clips/storage for the lengthy straps on it, even when using the waist belt and chest belt, the slack on the straps just kind of hang around. Not a big deal by any means, but it would be nice to have a place to put them so they don't snag on a tree branch or something.
At this sale price, you should definitely go for it. Great price for a great bag.

This bag has it all. The shovel pocket is big enough to fit the shovel blade, probe and even my old trusty trekkers. The bag says its 20L, but i had the Kode 22 and this bag has much more room for extra layers, food etc. I still have yet to find a better bag for backcountry tours or resort sidecountry. The pocket on the hip belt is really handy for things you want to access easily on the hike and the ski carry works perfect!

I had been using a Dakine Helipro for 5 years and it never seemed to fall apart. The only reason I'm not using it anymore is because I got a new one! These backpacks are built to last and the style is just a +. Dakine is a roots brand and has stuck with the roots. The backpacks show how the company stays true. The outerwear is the same way. Quality

pretty stoked when i bought it and just as stoked each time I use it, fits all my gear ranging from my GoPro, extra layers, my lunch, and for longer excursions, a shovel and a probe. It fits all that and I still have extra room. great for in bounds skiing as well as sidecountry and backcountry. ski carry works well too.

My Brother was looking for a pack that was water resistant and hydration compatible to carry books and other things around the city when it's raining or snowing. I recommended this pack because of those features and he can use it for snowboarding too! Now he doesn't have to worry about his books getting wet from a water absorbing backpack!

This backpack is practically all I want for one backcountry day. I bought the charcoal color scheme, and it´s not the same than the picture that appears in your web.... the sleeves do not have the citron color borders.... well it´s not big deal... but still... I was a little bit disapointed with this thing.

This bag does it all - School - Work and Backcountry hiking! The only thing missing is a good Computer Sleeve, but it is made for the Backcountry and you normally will not bring your computer to the "cuntch" - It does have enough space to put a computer in - my Apple 15inch fits fine....

Negative Reviews:

While this would be a decent pack for in-bounds days, I can't fathom using it for anything in side- or back-country. The outer tool pocket is too small to easily pack a probe and shovel handle. There's room for them, but they have to be tucked under a big lip that makes them tough to access. The last thing I want to be doing is fussing with that when I need both items. Also, I have a pair of Smith IOX goggles that didn't fit in the goggle pocket at all.
The main pocket is a pain in the butt because the zippers go all the way down past the buckles, making it hard to get closed with gloves on (reaching under the buckles). Also, if I were a boarder, I'd wonder where to put my poles.
The positives? The outside bottle pocket is a neat idea for warm days, and the main pocket can easily fit skins, first aid kit, layers, water bottle and a lunch. Seems durable, though I only used it once before deciding it doesn't work with tools.
