Poacher RAS 36L Pack

If you're only going to have one backcountry touring pack, you'd be wise to make it the Dakine Poacher RAS 36L Pack. It's spacious enough to hold a full day's touring kit, but it's still compact and close-fitting to allow for smooth, unburdened descents.

The main compartment offers room for lunch and extra layers, 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, 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.

Bag is solid and is ideal for day tours

I've used it several times

ignore the 1 star review guy, dude is on one. this bag is money. it perfectly and comfortably fits the dakine bladder, avy gear, goggles + extra lens + sunglasses, two sets of gloves, a puffy, a shell, snacks, tools, hats, and a helmet in the tuck away pouch on bottom, or the helmet loops up top. the way the layout of the bags access makes perfect sense when on the skin track or taking a quick break. makes everything incredibly simple to get to. the support straps help make the bag feel like it isn't even there most of the time. A solid bag with ample room, a fantastic layout, straight forward access, sleek look, and at a great price. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get out for the day.
