Black Diamond Dawn Patrol 25 Touring Pack (2022)
Need that workhorse touring pack that holds everything you'll need for a day on the hill or the skintrack without any unnecessary weight? The Black Diamond Dawn Patrol 25 has your number! Whether you want to have the option to carry your skis up the Highland Bowl bootpack or maybe even a trip out the gate into Granite Canyon, you can show up to the hill prepared for any sidecountry adventure.
For strictly touring days, the size of the Dawn Patrol 25 provides for lunch, extra layers, a dedicated avy shovel/probe pocket, and either a diagonal or a-frame ski carry. When the pitch turns steep, the Dawn Patrol 25 has two ice tool 'pickpockets' and a HiLo helmet holder. The hydration compatibility means you'll always have your favorite electrolyte beverage at the ready! For the quickest of access, the back panel zips open to get you to your mittens and your windshell when you hit the summit and want to maintain your core temperature before the ski down.
It's time to retire that old climbing pack that never quite fit the bill for skiing and get into the purpose-built Dawn Patrol 25!
Good but when the employee recommended me to it I didn’t realize it was a smaller pack
The Black Diamond Dawn Patrol 25 has been a great sport specific touring pack for day tours. Looking forward to continue using this great pack!
Black Diamond Dawn Patrol 25 Touring Pack
The BD Dawn Patrol has everything you need to ski in the backcountry. It has diagonal or A-frame ski carry, helmet storage, avy gear storage. And, all these features are in the right place and easy to access. It is ruggedly built and very comfortable to carry. The 25L is the perfect size for BC and the 15L is the perfect size if you primarily enjoy side country skiing. The one thing it does not have is a good way to carry a snowboard. One of the best packs made.
