Description & Specs
Focusing on designing a backcountry snowboarding airbag float backpack that makes touring in the backcountry more enjoyable, the K2 Backside team emphasized efficient carrying and organization of the most common backcountry necessities, as well as a comfortable fit. Additionally, a main goal was to keep all of the features needed during a backcountry snowboarding tour while eliminating all excess straps, clips and buckles. The result is a clean, comfortable backpack that easily fits your gear with the volume used efficiently to keep all the weight as close to your back as possible. The only difference between the 15 and 30 is the size of the main compartment, because the need for avy tools required varies whether accessing sidecountry or backcountry terrain.
