A good backpack.

My dad works up on the mountain and I run little errands around for him.
I don't like lockers or leaving my stuff, but I'm tired of carrying it over my shoulders and I was looking for a backpack that has loops of some kind I could slide my board through. I really want it to be horizantal or veritcal diagonal, something of the sort. I really like the looks of it.
Any help would be greatly apperciated.

im also looking for a board that can hold a board diagonally.
it doesnt take up too much space width wise and it doesnt
take up too much space height wise. if anyone can suggest
a good backpack that would be awesome.

i have burton bag that i got for 15$ lol main reason was to hold my board.....it can only be held vertically but ive noticed if you slide your board through the shoulder straps horizontally its works also.....so pretty much ANY bag whether its a boarding bag or not can hold a horizontal

Dakine and Ogio are two kick ass companies to look at. I find that both companies make quality stuff, but Dakine will be a bit more expensive.

The Dakin Heli Pro (or heli if they still make it) fit the bill for what you want. Nice and low profile, vertical and horizontal carry. I still use a Dakine Heli pack I bought 5 years ago for resort access backcountry stuff. It's by far the best low profile pack I have ever used.

I have both Dakine and Ogio packs and luggage and both are very good and super durable. Can't go wrong with either company

I have an old Dakine I got from my brother, and were I looking for a new pack, that would be where I would start looking. I've put the thing thru some serious shit, and yeah it's got holes in it and whatever, but other packs I've used would be worthless and completely destroyed after what I've done to this thing, and I still use it all the time.
