    Don't be that guy.

    Pass the dude who set the skinner right at the summit and steal the best line of the day with a lot of help from Dakine's Poacher 36L Backpack. Everything about this pack promotes a quick transfer from uphill-ready to downhill-shredding, including a back panel access that allows simpler switch-over, even with your snowboard, ski, or helmet still strapped to the backpack. The Poacher also features specific storage for an ice axe, goggle, hydration reservoir, and a probe and shovel in the dedicated avalanche gear compartment.

    Great big pack for touring

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    this pack has more than enough room for shovel, probe, jacket, hat, skins, lunch, snacks, etc. There's a padded goggle/sunglasses pocket and I was also surprised to find a roll-out helmet carrier. Easy rear-access zipper makes getting in and out of the pack a breeze. I packed all the essentials and still had room to spare. Highly recommened.

    Killer Backcountry Pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Dakine Poacher has a specific pocket for almost everything. My favorites being the padded goggle pocket (because you for sure need to carry around extra lenses right?) and avy gear compartment for your shovel, axe, etc...
    The back panel access is super convenient and doesn't negatively affect the comfort of the pack. Speaking of which, this pack is comfortable. Whether you're a diagonal or A-frame ski carrier (can't speak for snowboards) you won't be grimacing in pain when your trudging up the mountain with this bad boy strapped to your back.
    Pack is nicely insulated to prevent weather from ruining your afternoon refreshments. Very aesthetically pleasing. Got the blue color option, keeps you lookin fresh even if the rest of your fashion game is piss poor.

    Rugged pack for full-day missions

      Love this pack. It somehow maintains a sleek profile (doesn't bulge out) yet there always seems to be extra room for more shit. Super comfy and capable hip belt. HUGE pocket for avy tools and anything extra. Functional helmet carry. Skin pocket that is actually big enough to hold your skins - even though I prefer to stuff them in the main compartment and use that pocket for quick-access food storage. The back panel access is pretty great too. I had an old version of the poacher from forever ago and the back panel was soft, so it would bulge when super-packed. But this back panel is rigid enough to prevent that. In the world of Osprey, Arcteryx, Ortovox and all the others, its easy to under-estimate the quality of this Dakine pack but it does not disappoint. Low profile (for its size), comfy, and functional with no over-accessorizing.
