The Dakine Heli is a solid pack. Good for quick access backcountry and sidecountry where you don't need to carry a lot. If you are hiking out for around an hour or more, you might want the next size up pack though. The Poacher by Dakine is also a great pack. I think there is one that is between the two you may look at. Osprey and BCA also make pretty decent packs that you can usually find for a good price.
