Shovel and Probe Included: This is a special backcountry package that includes an aluminum avalanche shovel that snaps together in a jiff, and Dakine's 225cm long probe that can be deployed in no time. You have to be safe out there!
600D Fabric: This heavy duty nylon resists wear and tear, and reduces the risk that sharp edges will cut through the fabric. It is also water resistant, to keep gear dry when inside.
Padded back: Padding, about 1cm thick, with mesh lining gives users extra comfort and protection from hard objects inside the bag.
Adjustable Belt: Secure your bag to you while you're moving and shaking. Large buckle is winter glove friendly.
Chest compression strap: This strap, when correctly positioned, sits just above the sternum, and helps the shoulder straps and bag stay in place during activity. The elastic strip won't restrict movement and breathing.
Hydration pocket: A separate pocket inside the main compartment for a hydration bladder (not included), and a small slit for the hose routing outside of the pack. The shoulder strap also has a plastic clip to hold the hose in place while skiing or hiking.
Goggle Pocket: A soft fabric lines this pocket to make a little nest for a nice pair of goggles. Its at the top of the bag so your boots don't crush them. Pretty smart, eh?
Shovel compartment: Take the handle out of the shovel and insert into the internal pocket of this bag. The shovel blade is simply put in the main compartment.
Vertical Board Carrying Straps: You can snap your snowboard on to the outside of the bag for hiking around in the back-country or just to free up your hands when snapping photos.
Built-In Rescue Whistle: The male end of the sternum clip has a built-in rescue whistle, so if you need to be found you can simply blow this whistle and be found that much quicker. Time Saved=Lives Saved.

- The Perfect Pack for SnowboardingReview by Pete
This is a great backpack for snowboarding and skiing. When you're going out of bounds or back-country you need a shovel and a probe so this pack has both while remaining light weight. It's easy to ride with this pack on and it looks great too! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs the tools and wants a nice pack for a day on the mountain. I also purchased a water bladder which fits well into this pack. (Posted on 3/22/2015)
