If your average day of snowboarding is liable to include riding lifts, bootpacking bowls, heading out the gates, and splitboarding to your secret stash, then you need the Burton AK 23L Backpack. This do-it-all snowboard pack is equipped with all the features you need to be prepared inside the resort and out in the backcountry. Vertical snowboard straps hold your board when you're bootpacking the last stretch to the peak, and they also serve as a compression system to keep your pack as low-profile as possible. It also has a horizontal board carry option for riders traveling by sled. An easy-access shovel and probe pocket lets you get to your avalanche rescue gear as quickly as possible in case of a slide. The external pole storage holds your trekking poles when you're shredding down, and a padded waist belt keeps the pack from flopping around and throwing you off balance. It's also hydration-compatible so you can keep precious fluids handy, and a fleece-lined pocket keeps your goggles from getting scratched when you're hiking up in sunglasses.
