Comments about DaKine Heli Pro DLX 20L Backpack:

This backpack was perfect for what I bought it for. It's lights weight, comfortable, very good accessories, and stylish. I recently climbed a mountain and it was perfect to be able to put my camelbak into the sleeve and have the mouth piece have a place meant to have it come out. The cross ski feature is awesome too, it's annoying having to carry your skis with your hands, so it's nice to be able to be hands free when backcountry skiing. There was nothing I found wrong with this backpack other than that it doesn't have a padded sleeve for a laptop.

              my previous Helipro DLX lasted... 8 years I think. I bought an Oakley to try and fill the void in my life from Dakine, but now I own both, and the Oakley sits in the corner trying to be sold on Craigslist. to me, Dakine is the best quality and usable backpack in the world, especially the DLX.

                      Honestly the best bag I've ever had. From school books mid-week, harsh and variable conditions of the east coast ski slopes on the weekends, all the way to my biking and hiking trips in the summer, this bag does it all. I especially love the cable ski strap and ice ax compartment for the back country ski tours too. Buy a hydration reservoir and you're good to go.

                        I like how this backpack fits on my daughter back. It's not pulling her down like her previous backpacks. I was hesitant to buy it due to the cost but after seeing it on her and the durability I'm sold and will be buying another on for my son. Well worth the cost. And it as a whistle!! My daughter uses it for school but great feature if she needed to call for help.
