    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.

    With the ability to insert a Removable Airbag System 3.0® from Mammut® (sold separately or as a kit), means you can transfer it between bags, a smaller bag for regular use around the resorts, then transfer to a bigger bag for longer missions outside the resort boundary where you need to carry more stuff or take it out completely as use it as an everyday backpack.

    Dakine’s new Poacher takes 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. Zips aren’t perfect so Dakine has got rid of it and replaced it with Roll Top Closure. Simply re-pack the airbag and roll the top down. Done!

    Travelling with Avalanche Airbags

    Please note that we are only able to ship the bags with cartridges to UK mainland addresses only.



    Airbag package

    The Removable Airbag System 3.0 is an avalanche airbag system based on a square, brightly-coloured airbag that deploys behind the wearer’s head within seconds. The new system is safe and easy to use. It is even lighter and smaller than before and can be attached to all Removable 3.0-compatible backpacks.

    We are offering the option of buying the backpack on its own or as a complete kit with backpack, Mammut RAS 3.0 System and 1x Mammut Carbon Cartridge.

    It’s Important that you not only know how to deploy your bag, you should also know how to re-pack it too. Mammut makes a test tool that lets you practice pulling the handle and makes a click when you have pulled it hard enough, but it doesn’t let you deploy the bag.

    At Funky Yeti we want you to be sure exactly how your bag works so we will replace your 1st Cartridge for FREE. When you receive your bag;

    • Set up your bag
    • Arm the system
    • Install the cartridge
    • Deploy the airbag
    • Deflate the airbag
    • Re-pack the airbag.
    • Send the cartridge back to us and we will send you a new replacement that hopefully you will never ever use!

    If you do deploy your cartridge and need a replacement you can send the empty cartridge back to us and we’ll replace it for £15 plus postage!
