Burton Side Country 18L Backpack
BurtonSide Country 18L Backpack

Stray from the marked runs.

When all the in-bounds pow at the resort gets chewed up within 30 minutes of the lifts opening, head through the gates with your Burton Side Country 18L Backpack (and a riding buddy) and shred freshies to your heart's content. This pack sports a low-profile, body-hugging design that won't seem like a burden when you're doing quick out-of-bounds laps, but still offers enough room for all the backcountry essentials.

Even if you rode a lift to get to the gate, you still need all your avalanche safety gear, which is why Burton included a dedicated snow tool pocket on this pack. It also has A-frame and vertical board carry options for when the gate is simply a starting point for more ambitious ascents. The ergonomic shoulder harness and minimalist waist belt ensure a stable, comfortable fit when you're riding down, and airflow zones on the compression-molded back panel keep you from getting bogged down with sweat during the approach.

EXCELLENT PACK FOR BOARDING MISSIONS!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this on recommendation from my BACK COUNTRY Gear Head (Mark). So stoked on this purchase, I used this Pack in Canada, Wyoming and Montana and it's tough as nails. This is a super light weight low profile pack that you can pack all your basic gear in and it doesn't weight you down or interfere with lift rides up the mountain ( I noticed riders with bigger packs would have to take them off each chair up ). Also is a very stylish looking pack for the money, check it out you'll be stoked!
