As with all Dakine backpacks it depends on your height, the size of the backpack and the fit. An ideal backpack for biking is just not an ideal backpack for skiing or snowboarding. Especially for use in the snow, we at Dakine have developed backpacks in collaboration with professional skiers and snowboarders that are not to be surpassed in functionality, features and durability.
Is it possible to ski with a backpack?
Yes, certainly. Your ski and snowboard backpacks by Dakine
are your faithful companions on and off the slopes. They have an ergonomic design
to fit snug to your back, comfortably and well-balanced
. The padded shoulder straps
, the chest strap
and the hip belt
provide optimal weight distribution and stability
. So you do not even feel that you are wearing a backpack while you are making your powder turns through the deep snow.
How many litres should a ski backpack or snowboard backpack have?
It depends on your plans
for your snow day and how much weight you can carry on your back without feeling strained
. In the ski and snowboard backpack category
you can find backpacks from 12 to 32 litres.
We also have a 40-litres backpack
in our product range for very long tours
when you need to take more with you. A ski and snowboard backpack
should be tailored to your tour
. If you are traveling in open terrain, you need more luggage, because you must have a shovel, probe and avalanche transceiver.
An avalanche airbag is also recommended. You can attach your avalanche airbag to any Dakine Poacher R.A.S. avalanche backpack
. If you are on the pistes, a smaller backpack is sufficient. Here you may only need a second pair of ski goggles or glasses, sunscreen, a snack and something to drink. For this purpose the MISSION PRO 18 litres BACKPACK
If your tour lasts several days
, you will of course need a backpack with more space
. The POACHER 40 litres
offers ample features and storage for longer tours. With its advanced design, this large-volume ski and snowboard is our favourite backcountry ski and snowboard backpack for one-day tours and excursions off the pistes. The backpack has an innovative backpanel design which increases its flexibilit
y and optimises the fit
and offers sufficient volume for longer adventures
, while still offering top comfort from early in the morning to late in the evening.
There are several carrying options
for skis and helmets that make it efficient and easy to transport them during the ascent, and splitboard pole attachment loops secure stability when the time has come for the downhill.
With the TEAM MISSION PRO 32 LITRES
, Dakine also offers a backpack for your film and photo equipment. It was developed with direct input from pro-rider Louis Felix-Paradis.
This backpack has the space and compartments to organize your touring or film kit and more.
What advantages does a ski rucksack/snowboard rucksack offer?
Dakine ski and snowboard backpacks
have been made specifically for winter sports
. They have all the features you need for skiing and snowboarding. An extra strap for your skis or board
. A helmet carry option, attachment loops for splitboard poles
and glove-friendly cam-lock buckles
. A special storage space for quick access for your avalanche equipment
and access to the main compartment via the back panel are other features of a ski and snowboard backpack. Of course, all backpacks also have the emergency whistle on the chest strap. Even more compartments
, which are specially made for your ski goggles, cell phone or other sensitive items,
you will also find in the backpacks for snow sports. So you can keep everything safe and protected. In addition, Dakine backpacks are extra robust against snow, moisture and abrasion.
They are made of extra water repellent materials
or have a waterproof coating
. This will protect your personal items and equipment from snow, moisture and cold.
