Not too big and not too small, the Heli Pro 24L falls right in the Goldilocks zone of backcountry packs. This seek-and-destroy powder package is big enough, but certainly not too big. Purpose-built snow tool sleeves keep shovel and probe at the ready, a large fleece-lined goggle pocket and deployable helmet carry neatly stow essentials on the go, and a hydration sleeve doubles as laptop storage off the mountain.
If your Dakine bag gets dirty, we recommend hand washing with mild soap (like Nikwax Tech Wash), cold water and a soft bristle brush. If hand washing is not going to do the trick, use a front loader washing machine. To ensure your backpack doesn't get tangled, place inside a pillowcase or mesh bag before washing. Always use cold water, mild soap and run on a gentle cycle. Never bleach your pack. Hang to dry in a warm but shady place, ensuring both inside and out are dry before storing.
