Which backpack?

Hey guys,

Thinking of getting a backpack for this winter, only want something slim so it doesn't weigh me down.

Was thinking dakine?!? Found a few packs on offer. What does everyone think of...

Dakine heli pro

are you going to use it for backcountry, for taking shit up to the mt in your car, or are you actually going to ride around the resort with a backpack like an idiot with all your little snacks and water and vagina warmers loaded up in there?

lol@shred. Those vagina warmers come in handy.

If you want a quality backpack for more than holding your baggie of green and your nature bar, look up Osprey.

Or just make sure your jacket has pockets...

This is what I used when I went side country boarding last year, meant for hiking but worked great.

Uh, like Shred suggests, don't use a backpack if you're just lugging around "stuff". The weight/balance disadvantages are not worth what you can just shove in your jacket pockets.

Lol the osprey is a quality bag brother ;-) I usjed it last year for some side country riding and it held up great. Carries all the basics like a bladder, shovel, probe, etc etc etc but it would be a tad small for a whole day of back country riding.
But pockets will be enough if he's ONLY holding his weed and candy haha
