Question Dakine Heli Pro Pack

Does anyone have any experience with this pack? I am thinking about picking one up from Sierra since they are half-off right now. Only other question is if I should get the Premier color or the Woodland? I know, it's personal preference and all, but hey, I'm indecisive so outside opinions are appreciated.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I have it and love it. I rarely use it for snowboarding, primarily as a hiking daypack. Very comfy.

Interesting cause when I look it shows plenty in stock. Here's the link to the one I'm looking at. Dakine Heli Pro - 20L Backpacks Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com But yeah, the woodland does look nice. What do you think might match this Columbia Men's Titanium Rodeo Magic ll Parka - FREE SHIPPING at Altrec.com better? The coat is definitely more green than the picture shows, but you get the idea.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I'd go with woodland over premier. Mine is solid black.

Weird... sorry about that! In that case definitely go with the Premier. The brown in the Woodland kinda clashes a little with the coat a tiny bit, but if you love it they're both nice

Edit: a tiny bit, not but but
I was looking at the 16L not the 20L, my mistake.

I've got a Heli Pro. It's servicable as a daypack for rocking at the resorts, but if you're looking for something to handle more serious hikes, upgrade to the Poacher. I snagged mine at REI over christmas for about $65 (half off, I think).

I just need a dayhiker/resort rocker pack. When it comes to full on hiking, I'll bust out the internal frame. Thanks though!

Well, I pulled the trigger on the Premier. I also ended up with a new hat and some sweet stickers since goddamn everything is on sale at Sierra right now. Thanks for the help guys!
