For the past two seasons I have used the Dakine Baker 16L backpack for short tours and riding the resort .(http://www.dakine.com/p/ski/backpacks/mens/baker16)

I broke some buckles on it and put a hole in the bottom from my poles, so I am looking at buying a new backpack.

I want something with equal or greater volume, but no larger than 18L (as I still need to sit on the chairlift without taking it off)

I would prefer if it had an avalanche tools pocket, but I can live without it, but a Vertical sowboard carry is a MUST.

What do you recommend?

I would recommend the DaKine Heli Pro, 20L. It is sightly bigger than what you want but I use it in-bounds and keep it on my back when I ride the lifts, even when it is loaded with stuff with no issues. I also use it on shorter backcountry days and it handles water, food, avy tools, spare parts/tools perfectly. It has an avy tools pocket inside and the shovel handle holder outside. I have used it for a few years now and it still looks new, the zippers are beefy and the material is very durable. I also use it in the summer for hiking and mountain biking, no issues. I will definately be buying another one if this one ever dies!

Check out the 18L Jones packs. I've got the 30L and love it. They are pretty light and very durable so far after a season of use. http://jonessnowboards.com/index.php/pr ... l-backpack
