Why We Like The Dakine Poacher 40L Backpack

For our biggest backcountry adventures, we pack up our long list of necessary gear in the Dakine Poacher 40L Backpack. This 40L pack offers a comfortable carry of our skis, snowboards, tools, and other out-of-bounds equipment as we skin to the top and send it back down the mountain. Its a-frame carry loops fit any size boards or skis, while its wrapping molded back panel design offers unmatched comfort. Not to mention, it’s made with 100% recycled high-density nylon materials, and we love a sustainably built product.
