Dakine’s DLX Cargo Pack is built to handle gear, and plenty of it. It is the most versatile bag we tested and the only one that has the ability to strap skis or boards onto the bag. The DLX Cargo Pack offers multiple options for carrying and has enough room for all the essential gear. The only downside to the design is that the boots are stacked on top of each other, which is uncomfortable on extended treks to the lodge and can lead to water getting inside the boots if they’re stowed while still wet.
