Product Info

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of their now famous Heli Series of backpacks, Dakine is releasing a modernized version of the old school classic. The Dakine '96 Heli Pack 16L Backpack has the same iconic 3 buckles across the front look as the original, but with added features like hydration capabilities and a horizontal board carry. The idea of a low-volume pack for heli-accessed skiing spawned a whole new class of backpacks with slimmed down sizes and a focus on downhill comfort, and it remains the blueprint for pretty much all backcountry packs to this day.
