Dakine Poacher R.A.S. 42L Backpack

Boardworks Breakdown: 

This pack is what you want for longer splitboard missions, lightweight overnight snow camping, and next level avalanche safety. While absolutely NOTHING is a substitute for the holy trinity of a beacon, shovel, and probe, the Mammut airbag system in this pack ads another level of protection to your avalanche safety kit. It also has plenty of room for longer days in the backcountry. Check out the full list of features below to see all the sick bells and whistles this pack offers.
