The story of a legendary backpack: Dakine Heli Pack
In the 90s, Dakine's offices in Mount Hood, Oregon, USA, saw quite a few riders passing by and it's one of them, a snowboarder, who's at the origin of the Heli Pack backpack. He needed a compact bag that could carry the essentials for his trips to Alaska, nothing more. Dakine designed it on request and what was just a service to a friend became one of the best selling Dakine bags.

The newer version of the Dakine Heli Pack 12L has the perfect volume to store your essentials whether you’re up in the mountain or cruising the streets or the countryside.
This compact backpack is perfectly suited for exploring the wilderness. Its superlight construction weighs only 700g and allows you to carry all the safety necessities you may need out there, including an outer pocket that fits a snow shovel. Features include a ski or snowboard carry system, numerous pockets, padded shoulder straps or hip belt. Reinforced with 600D polyester, Dakine is taking good care of your most fragile gear with, for instance, a fleece-lined pocket for your snow goggles. The backpack also comes with slots for a DK Impact Spine protector and for a hydration system. In order to reduce back pain and make this freeride bag easier to carry, Dakine gave it a chest strap and a hip belt to distribute weight with more consistence.
But Dakine knows winter is not always around and there are other occasions you may need a backpack for. Hence, they put in the Heli Pack a 15” laptop compartment and an amazing look which you can be proud of in the streets.
In short, if you are looking for the ultimate backpack, for a small partner that can carry your essentials comfortably on your back, the Dakine Heli pack is the one. .
