If you are looking for a bag for lift accessed freeriding, this is it. The 18L version of the Poacher is slim enough that you can sit on the lift without taking the bag off. With enough room for all your avalanche gear and some essentials like an extra layer, a drink and a snack. This is ideal for lapping the powder off the side of the piste or short hikes to get to that hidden stash of snow.

It's compatible with the Mammut® Removable Airbag System 3.0 (sold separately or as a kit), so you can ski off piste with the added protection of an Airbag. An avalanche airbag increases the chance of staying closer to the surface in an avalanche and perhaps even managing to free yourself.

The Poacher also features Dakine's exclusive RollTop airbag closure, taking the philosophy less is more to the next level. Most Airbag systems deploy through a special zippered compartment. There is a zone that allows the zips to come apart and the airbag pops out but Zips aren’t perfect so Dakine has got rid of them and replaced it with Roll Top Closure. Simply re-pack the airbag and roll the top down. Done!

And the RAS System is removable so you can switch it between bags. Use it in a smaller back for your lift accessed adventures, then transfer it to a bigger bag for longer missions outside the resort boundary where you need to carry more stuff.
