I'm also shopping around for a pack for sidecountry riding.
Anybody have any experience with the Baker 16L
Dakine Canada Packs : Baker 16L
or the smaller Heli Pack 11L?
Dakine Canada Packs : Heli Pack 11L
Need room for probe and a two-piece shovel. Might get the smaller water reservoir from DaKine too. Other than that, really want to get the smallest bag possible.
