DaKine Heli Pack
A good winter pack should be light weight, durable and should be easy to use. Packs that give only a year or so of durability do not provide users much value for their money and tend to have weak stitching that requires replacement within a few months. Depending on what kind of expedition you are headed for, a winter pack should have enough room for essentials like water, food and tool kits and then some.
One of the most durable and great looking winter packs is definitely the DaKine Heli Snow Pack. With 11 Liters of volume, the Heli Snow Pack is packed with great features and is the longest lasting pack on the market, providing its buyers with durable and exceptional design that lasts, giving true value for the money. The DaKine Heli Snow Pack allows for easy movement and makes carrying easy because of its vertical snow board and a retractable ski cable carry. This is a really neat feature as it creates ease in carrying snow boards, ski cables,skate boards and long boards safely as it stays stable and the straps are amazingly strong.
Its design allows for carrying lots of accessories like snow shoes, a wind breaker or other warmer jackets and has a neat fleece lined goggle pocket which prevents the goggle from fogging up. The fleece protects the lens from scratches especially during tumbles and falls. It also has a helmet pocket which makes carrying the helmet around quite hassle free. The Heli pack has an insulated hydration pouch which stores water in a bladder without having the water freeze. This hydration pouch is on the shoulder straps allowing you to stay hydrated without stopping or taking off the pack.
The Heli Snow Pack has chest buckles that tighten to provide a good fit and a padded waist belt. This pack stays close to the body and because of the stretchable, high quality material, it stays soft on the shoulders, sternum and waist. It has a low profile which is a great feature to have in a winter pack especially if you are carrying it around for long hours. This bag does not rip at the seams contrary to other winter packs. It has quality stitching and is made using the highest quality material, so even when stuffed with tools and other accessories it feels comfortable and its material stretches to accommodate. Designed with 600 D polyester and lined with water proof material snow and water just slides off the Heli and the pack stays dry.
Available in some really cool designs and 9 colors, the Heli Snow Pack is definitely a good investment. With lots of great features and a great cool look this winter pack is multi-purpose and is used not just for snow packing but also for skating, cross country cycling, trail hikes, biking and back country hiking. Since this is a basic pack and has a low profile and is quite unobtrusive and easy to use, many people use it for everyday purposes, taking it to college and work. With a funky and rugged look, the Heli Snow Pack is durable, smart and has an amazing construction that makes it a really ideal buy.
