The Dakine Poacher Backpack is a great option for any skier/snowboarder interested in heading into the backcountry. A bit large for resort shredding, however the extra space comes in handy when heading out for a slacker Rocky/Patsey lap. If you heat up quick while hiking like myself you’ll be stoked you have extra room for all those layers you’ll be stripping.
With the ability to carry both skis and snowboards this pack doesn’t discriminate. The outside pocket gives you quick access to your shovel and probe and the back-access allows you to grab those hard to reach items without unloading your entire pack.
The insulated hydration sleeve works ok but, I still found my water tube freezing on the colder days. The waist straps come with a tiny pocket for your camera or cell phone which I found extremely convenient for snapping those all important hero shots of your buddies. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced pack to get you off the chairlifts and into the backcountry then look no further. The Poacher pack will not disappoint!
