From the pow choked spines of the Chugach to Hokkaido's legendary tree runs, the Burton Women's AK Backpack caters to backcountry riders in pursuit of fresh powder and steep lines. The vertical board carry doubles as compression straps, streamlining the pack's contents for minimal bulk when you're skinning up backcountry runs and riding through tight chutes. And for those lucky few, the pack's horizontal board carry facilitates sled accessed riding. Additionally, you'll appreciate the hydration compatible design, as well as external water bottle pocket for staying hydrated at high altitudes. The pack's external pole storage and internal shovelprobe compartment stores your snow safety gear within quick reach. There's also a fleece lined goggle pocket for keeping a fresh pair of goggles on hand. Furthermore, Burton didn't skimp on the pack's carrying system, incorporating women's specific shoulder straps, an ergonomic back panel, and padded waist strap for comfortable carrying and hiking.
