DAKINEPoacher RAS 26L Pack - 1587cu in

Poach untouched powder.

Designed to handle light-and-fast tours and through-the-gates powder hunting alike, the Dakine Poacher RAS 26L Pack is a compact choice for staying prepared in the backcountry without feeling like you're hauling a multi-day trekking pack. It fits close to your body for smooth, streamlined riding, but has room for all the basic essentials when you head beyond the resort.

The main compartment offers room for snacks, maps, and an extra baselayer, and the back panel access lets you reach what you need without unloading the entire pack. Meanwhile, an avy tool-specific pocket allows quick access to your probe and shovel, just in case the worst happens. A padded hipbelt keeps the pack from shifting around while you ride, and the breathable back panel helps keep your back from getting soaked with sweat.

This pack is compatible with Mammut's Removable Airbag 3.0 System (sold separately), which inflates in seconds to prevent you from getting buried in the event of an avalanche. And if you plan on getting into some seriously technical terrain, this pack is also compatible with Dakine's Impact Spine Protector (also sold separately), because you can never take safety too seriously.

So many features

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

From the locking waist to the helmet pocket and ice axe loops dakine put a lot of work into this pack. Carries weight well and keeps your gear organized.

Dakine Nailed It!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pack is exactly what I was looking for. Something to hold my board and everything I need in the backcountry. It is well though out and easy to load. I love that it is compatible with the Mammut RAS. Bomproof construction is apparent by some of the small things they do very well with this pack. Fully adjustable to dial in a great fit. I use it for any backcountry touring and it doubles for me as a hiking daypack and general do-it-all bag. Highly recommended.

Awesome pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great bag, quality construction, RAS sysytem is nicely tucked away. Great for day touring or sidecountry days. Def stoked on it and holds more than you would need for anything up to a full day out in the mountains. Fit is great and sits comfortably on your back. No complaints or things I could think of for additions.

Awesome Ski Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for an airbag pack with a few key features and this was spot on. I like the fact that it uses the Mammut removable airbag system that can be transferred to a different pack or even the Dakine vest. The dedicated avy pocket, helmet carrier, diagonal ski carry, and pack panel zippered access are all great features. So far I've used this on a few tours and am very pleased.
