Especially if you are planning a long and extensive excursion in the backcountry, away from prepared slopes, you'll need a fully featured backpack. With 18 litres, you’ll be able to take with you everything you need, and nothing you don't. An isolated drinking tube compatible with hydration systems ensures you won’t have to suffer from thirst in remote areas. You can buckle up your skis diagonally, or your snowboard vertically. Pockets for tools, shovel and a fleece lined pocket for goggles and sunglasses provide room for all your backcountry essentials. The zippered compartments are easily accessible, so you don’t have to rummage around. Even wearing comfort is taken care of! A breathable and padded back and waist belt make sure that you can transport the backpack comfortably. With the whistle on the sternum strap, you will be able to attract attention, should you ever get lost.
Dakine started in 1979 on the shores of Maui, when Rob Kaplan set out to create a bombproof surf leash. With a move to the mountains, the business naturally expanded into snow sports. Some of Dakine's most iconic pieces were created out of the wants and wishes of local skiers and snowboarders who strolled in and out of the new office. Dakine pride themselves on the high quality of their products, and we are yet to come across someone who isn't impressed with their durability.
