Pack dilemma: Burton ak15l or Dakine helipack
I am planning to purchase a pack for coming up whistler trip.
I want a small pack where i can carry extra shirt or two, camelhydration pack (70oz), some snacks & extra lens/goggles
not really planning to carry a shovel or anything of that sort.
Burton ak15l has solid back plate(?) so it will be comfortable on the back, looks better, easier to carry snowboard vertically (which i am not sure of i will taking advantage of)...
Dakine helipack has hydration sleeve so the camelpack hose will be incased in the shoulder straps, a clip on the top-inside of backpack for holding camelhydration, cheaper, better waist strap, helmet carrying place...
my first priority is comfort when riding w/ backpack on
since Dakine does not have solid back plate(?) would be uncomfortable?
Has anyone used any of these packs? Which one do you think is better?
