Heli Vest

Snowboard & Ski Utility Vest - 10001473


    Dakine Heli Vest

    The Heli Vest brings all the practical functionality of our Heli Pack series, and it's clean, evenly weighted, and super low-profile. Ride lifts, bootpack, and ride into the backcountry without weight shifting or restricted movement, and access everything you're carrying without taking your pack off. It's also hydration pack compatible, and the back features ski and snowboard carry, a padded snow tool and shovel pocket, and DK Impact Spine Protector compatibility. Meanwhile, even load distribution and vented side panels help you stay cool, and eliminate the hotspot that can come from carrying a traditional pack.

    Care Instructions

    • 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.

    Snowboard & Ski Vests

    The Poacher R.A.S. and Heli Vest should always be worn over your outerwear, so the measurements below are over outerwear. As a general rule of thumb, if you wear a medium jacket and like a casual fit- buy the Medium/Large size.
