What about a good back pack?

Can anyone recommend a good, comfortable, moderately sized backpack for snowboarding? Nothing that's necessarily for way out of bounds stuff like split boarding, but your typical small time out of bounds riding, maybe something outfitted with a drink pouch and whatnot.

If urgoing backcountry i highly suggest proper gear. If your just ducking ropes and sking glades then i would suggest a burton backpack. They are very comfy and have nice and convenient pocket. If u want something lower profile a camelbak should suit you well

I have camelbak, dakine, and osprey backpacks.

I prefer my osprey kode 22. Super comfortable and the highest quality out of the bunch.

Dakine Heli Pro, carry you board vertically or horizonally, it's got hydration pocket and sleeve. For me, the biggest selling point, it's not very "deep". You can sit on the chair without to much of a problem.

I used to have a burton 23L pack it was really nice for the use. Vertical carry, hydration pouch, and ski pole attachments. I really liked it I would look into one of those if I were you

The Dakin Heli Pro is pretty hard to beat for slackcountry type riding. Burton and other board companies make pretty good packs for this too. Osprey makes great packs without a doubt. Maybe my next bc pack, but they don't usually have the slim profile that the Heli Pro has.

I actually just bought the Dakine Heli pak. It's got 3" depth. It's ultra low profile, carries a board, has a insulated hydration sleeve, some room for goggles, a couple tools, and some food. Perfect for me. If I ever venture into anything remotely significant next year, I'll definitely be getting upgrading.

Ive got 2 of the Dakine heli packs. 1 setup for day trips on the splitboard and one for carrying my SLR camera with the necessary goodies for both so I dont even need to swap stuff out. I really like that pack for the price.
