Poacher RAS 18L Pack

Poach epic backcountry lines with the Dakine Poacher RAS 18L pack.

The zippered front panel easily stores a probe and shovel or other tools that can be accessed quickly in the event of an emergency, and the backpanel main compartment stores a jacket, snacks, water, or anything else to bring along during a day spent in the mountains.

Awesome pack for day trips.

I've used it several times

This pack is the perfect size for a quick day trip. With the RAS system installed I can still easily fit a shovel, probe, extra gloves, nalgene, extra layer or shell, and goggles. Top goggle pocket is perfect for a multi-tool, sandwich, and sunscreen. Bag fits better than my Arva. I am 5'11 180 and would say this bag is perfect. If I'm taking camera gear and need some extra room I will definitely go with my Arva bag.
