If it is for bc riding look at the osprey ski/snowboard line. 30 liter packs are what I look for. Large enough to carry a full days supply but small enough to cinch down nicely with smaller loads.

Their packs have hydration sleves and insulated shoulder straps to run the hose through. I believe Dakine is making packs withe insulated sleeves these days too.

Osprey makes nice packs, not sure how well they board-carry.

+1 for Osprey and Dakine packs. I'll be going with one or the other (probably Osprey) for a trip next March.

Check to see if they carry the board vertical or horizontal. Some only have 1 option, but I wanted one with both, for snowmobiling and hiking. The first option can only do vertical carry I think. The bottom 2 can do both. All have insulated hydro sleeves.

This one is a bit small.

Me likey.

I really like the Dakine Blade though. It has separate stow pockets and straps for avi tools, and just a few more liters of space to make sure everything can fit.

Since you're in Europe, look at Deuter as well. Comfortable, functional and durable.
