Dog ate my backpack
Left some treats in my pack... my dog ate through the pocket and chewed up half my laptop in the process.
So I'm probably gonna get a pack that can carry a board, but I'm not sure why you would want vertical vs. horizontal carry options. I'd also like it to be useable as a backcountry sack as I have aspirations of moving that direction with my riding in the coming year or two, but I'm not sure how big I would need it to be. 20L? 30L? I don't want a huge pack as it will double as a school bag (if it has a laptop pad it would be perfect), so I'm just not sure where to go.
I've been looking at the Dakine Blade and Heli Pro models because they can carry both horizontal and vertical, but I'm not sure if I will ever need both.
Would horizontal carry be for riding snowmobiles and vertical for hiking?
