I love it! Plain and simple. I have always loved Dakine packs for their durability, functionality, and steeze. This pack is no different.
I've had a 20L Heli-pro pack for campus for about 4-5 years now, and decided it was time to update the stash. I was worried about dropping to an 18L, but I find that it's actually the perfect size for my little body (5'2, 112lbs). It still fits all of my school necessities without looking like the oversized turtle shell. Aside from the size, one of the biggest differences are these little sorting pockets in that front stash pocket which helps keep your pens, phone, keys, whatever else a little bit more organized. There is also no hip belt pocket. Still the same buckles for ski/board carry, which have worked well for me in the past. I will def keep my 20L around for slackcountry purposes until I wear through it- Dakine makes quality goodies!
I got the sweet Annie Boulanger 1 color way with the camo, purple, and lace! It's adorable! I have used this pack mainly in the side country and a few long backcountry days. Fits shovel and probe nicely, with extra room to fit extra layers, gloves, skins, ect. There is a fleece lined pocket to store or keep an extra pair of goggles. The front pocket is handy for snacks and any small randoms that you will need. This would also make a great school bag as it will fit a 15in lap top and there are great divides to fit pens/pencils, keeps you organized! Pack is fits nicely and the waist belt is adjustable. This pack is also hydration compatible! Great durability! Highly recommended!
