k2 hyak photo The K2 BackSide Hyak Kit includes the 15 liter pack, an avalanche probe, and speed shovel with room for a spare pair of goggles and your hardshell, plus food and water.

If you are exploring the back country a kit like this is essential, and K2 puts it together nicely. The pack will carry skis in either the A-frame or diagonal positions or a snowboard. The avalanche probe is light, strong and compact and deploys easily with gloves on, and the shovel in this set is the lightest K2 offers (700 grams) making it quick and easy to deploy. The pack is made from Nylon and is also hydration compatible.
