      It's just so smart. I find it hard to find fault because it had so many inter-changing options. Well done on all levels. Size to weight ratio is super. Just a world class bag.

        I bought this product after borrowing it from my brother because I loved it! I hiked up to Tuckerman's ravine in New Hampshire with it in late April. It is perfect to carry the mutiple layers needed for a mountain like Mt. Washington but is lightweight enough that I didn't feel like I was carrying a load. The compartments are useful. I love that it has paded sides for your hips to help distibute the weight.

            Bought this to be my school backpack for my freshmen year in college, and it's been outstanding. I use it for my daily grind at school and then on the weekends, I switch it out for my gear and it's a great day trip ski bag too, and it crushes that as well. It's not much of a road trip pack, for longer trips I bring full gear bags, but for daily runs to the local hill it's awesome!

            I baught two backpacks this time, one for myself, one for my friend. We are statisfactory with this on-line shopping. As the delivery to China is not free, I choose delivered to a friend in US and then take back to China. Good price, good quality.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery is very quick, it's faster than I expected.

                Comments about DaKine Heli Pro 20L Backpack:

                I had a ski pack I got at a ski shop a few years ago. It was alright, but if I carried hard objects in it (such as a metal water bottle or a u-lock) they dug into my back, and if I strapped skis to it they would bang into my legs. I wanted a better back and decided to go with the Heli Pro. It is an excellent pack. It has a back pad to make carrying hard objects more comfortable and it does a better job of keeping skis away from my legs (though still not perfectly). It can carry skis a-frame and diagonal, but the one downside is that the diagonal carry only works one direction. It would be nice for it to work both directions to allow traversing steep slopes both directions. At 20 liters, it works great for an in-bounds ski back, a cycling pack (urban/road or mountain), or a day trip hiking pack. I use it for summer skiing when I hike to glaciers/snow fields, which it is excellent for, but if you want something for winter/spring backcountry skiing you'll probably want something bigger to hold avalanche gear.
