"Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L" 9/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  Features everywhere, Very comfortable, perfect size, Insulated hydration channel
  • Cons:  Almost needs a manual!, Very long straps (easily cut if needed), I don't need the bottle holder

Experience:   Apparently the upgrade to the Heli Pro, which I haven't used but had been recommended. I liked the look of the camera pouch on the waist band on this one. It is pretty hard to spot the difference between this and the Pro II apart from its extra space in the shovel pocket. It took me a few times playing with this bag to find all the features. The lower straps for the vertical board carrying tuck away nicely into the bag, the top ones clip neatly into pairs. Horizontal board carrying works by slotting the board between the back padding and the bag. A coated steel cable loop that pulls out of the bottom of the bag for ski carrying. Axe loop on the side. My single favorite feature is the insulated hydration pocket. The actual bladder sits behind the foam padding for your back, keeping it warm. The hydration hose runs internally through the shoulder strap of the bag, keeping it from freezing in the cold. You just zip it out when you need it or if it isn't cold. The goggle pocket is nice, as is the camera pouch on the waist (both lined). It sits really comfortably on your hip and fits a small digital camera. It has a small internal clip, presumably to attach the camera wristband to. This bag is hard to fault. The straps that come on the bag are quite long. You may need to cut them and re-sew them if you like. This isn't even a negative, it just means it'll fit more people. The other thing that isn't as useful as the rest of the features is the zip out bottle carrying pocket. Might be good if you need to carry an emergency beer or something but with such a good hydration system I can't see the need. I haven't been able to test how waterproof the bag is, but it seems really well made. The zips are all really high quality with big plastic tabs to make life easy with gloves on. All up, I'm really happy I bought this and liked being surprised and impressed with all the little touches and thoughts that went into this pack.

I should also add: The Voile Tele-Pro T6 shovel blade fits in the front pocket (with the neck protruding slightly) and the handle attaches onto the side of the pack. G3 320cm probe fits in the main compartment.

even though its not used for school, could i use this for college? Does it have a laptop pocket...or a seperate pocket a laptop could fit?

"the ONLY bag you need" 12/9/2009
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  well thought out design, everything is useful, sweet colorways, lots of features
  • Cons:  not big enough for anything over a day trip,

Experience:   I got this pack and had to sit down for about an hour playing with everything on the bag to really figure out all the features it had. After seeing everything it had, I started to fit all of my gear into it, and everything fits in its own place perfectly. The front pocket fits my Black Diamond Deploy 7 shovel perfectly. I can put an ice axe in the side holster and grab it easily, but trekking poles can go into that holster just as easily. Goggles fit in the goggle pocket. Probe and snowshoes go in the main pocket, along with some layers and a little bit of food. Water fits in the bladder pocket, beer fits in the retractable beer holster. This backpack just works and fits everything you need for a day. For backcountry multi-day trips, I bring this bag along with my big bag. On the days we go out just to ride, I bring this along. Sometimes I rock it in the resort, but I compress it a lot so its a skinny pack. The compression straps on this are awesome, they give you a lot of load carrying flexibility. All in all, an awesome bag.

"Heli Pro the Trooper" 1/15/2013
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  quality material and zippers, insulated drinking tube in shoulder strap,
  • Cons:  heavier than the regular heli pro,

Experience:   Ive been using the heli pro dlx for a couple years now and it is my go to, go everywhere backpack. In the winter, the insulated drinking tube shoulder strap is great, as it keeps your drinks in the bladder from freezing, and in the summer, you can shove it into the strap to keep the tube out of the way. The zippers are heavy duty and have yet to let me down, they still zip up and down flawlessly. The camera pocket on the waist strap is convenient in the summer when cycling to keep your house keys in. and the top sunglasses/goggles pocket is nice, in that it is fuzzy-lined to not scratch your shades. All in all, I love this bag, but if I had to do it again, I would get the regular heli pro, because its lighter. The dlx has an extra horizontal board carry that is basically a flip down flap on the back of the pack, which puts your board between the bag and your back. I havent ever used this, and I think this is why it weighs so much more than the regular heli pro. Its a great bag, but I havent ever needed to use all of the nifty little stuff.

"2011 Heli" 12/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  comfortable straps, side bottle pocket, multiple board/ski carry possibilities, insulated hydration sleeve in shoulder strap
  • Cons:  a bit weighty (1.5kg), no organizer pockets for school stuff,

Experience:   As there is no listing for the 2011 model, I'm putting it here under the 2010. First off, I actually wanted the normal heli pro, but after seeing it in the stores and comparing the regular and the DLX models, I decided on the DLX. The only real differences between the 2 are that the regular heli pro has organizer pockets inside of the shovel pocket in the front, for pens and calculater or whatever kinda stuff, while the DLX does not Though this doesn't really bother me that much. The other difference is that the DLX has a pocket on the side that when opened, a mesh pocket pops out to hold your bottle of water or keys or smokes or whatever you want to keep handy, but still pretty secure (drawstring bungee closure on top). It also has a small camera/key pocket on the waist strap(even has a little clip inside so you dont worry about dropping or losing stuff if you drop em) And last but not least, the DLX has a flap on the backside of the pack (between you and the bag) that you can use to carry your board horizontally. Even though the DLX weighs roughly twice as much as the normal heli pro 20L (700 vs 1500g) I really wanted to have the bottle and waist-strap key pockets. Ive used the bag for a few weeks now as an everyday school bag and theres enough room to pack several notebooks and the like inside and the bottle pocket on the side is also quite handy. While the front pocket is designed for a shovel, it also has vents, for lack of a better word, so that the melted snow can drain out. This however makes it so that if you want to put things in there other than your shovel, they might get wet. Overall a very well thought out, functional, sturdy bag.

"Very good bag, feels solid" 7/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  Strong Bag - back feels like it has a solid frame, Padded on the back, Thoughtful pockets, for the laptop, googles etc

Experience:   I've been snowboarding wearing this bag with a DSLR camera (inside it's own camera bag), cup noodles and cup-of-soup packets. I had a very nasty fall on my back when I somersaulted 2x going backwards. The padding on the back of the bag probably protected me from any injuries received from items contained in my bag. I was covered with snow after that accident, and so was my bag, but my things still remained dry inside. One of my noodle packets got damaged, tho not enough to spill the noodles out and create a mess in my bag. I'm approx. 50kg so may be different experience for different people. There's 2 front pockets (one for your goggles), a side pocket for your drink bottle, a tripod holder on the other side. At the back of the bag is a laptop holder. Also, there's a secret pocket on the waist strap of the bag.

"Wicked Bag!" 3/16/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  massive space inside, great goggle pocket, lots of compartments
  • Cons:  may need a manual to find everything, no laptop strap,

Experience:   This bag is near perfect! I bought the bright green one and am very impressed. Im yet to take it out for a spin but looking forward to it! There is so much storage area in this small bag, yet it still sits compactly on your back. I did think they might include storage space for a laptop (more for travelling to the snow not actually using it in the snow!)so I was a little disappointed but there is more than enough room to get it in there anyway! Anyway cant see myself ever needing a new backpack!

"Best Pack" 11/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  fully featured, horizontal and vertical board carry, durable
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   this pack has many features but I'm not gonna list them here... the pack comes in 16L size and 20L size, I prefer the bigger pack so I can fit an extra layer, some food, my shoes (if I don't have a car or locker, water/drink, with a bit of room to spare. This is in the main comprtment, there are other parts that carry other gear. I've taken the bag to many trips and have thrown it around a lot. It seems very durable and I have had no problems so far. Also, the straps allow you to make it tight to your body so it doesn't affect your riding.

"Perfect Pack " 5/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Dakine Heli Pro DLX 20L
  • Pros:  Camera Pouch, Bright Green Color , Built In Goggle Case
  • Cons:  Didn't need the steel cable loop,

Experience:   Nice low profile pack. I have the bright green one which is a beautiful color. The bladder that is supposed to be purchased with this pack, burst on my first trip out. Would probably go with a camel back bladder instead of the recommended one from Dakine. Otherwise the bag is a perfect fit for me. The tag says for 5'7 and lower but find it to be a mistype as I am 5'11 and the bag fits fine.
