    Dakine Poacher RAS Vest L/XL

    New, never skied Dakine Poacher RAS Vest size L/XL. No airbag or canister. I had to order without trying on and got a size too big. Ideally, want to trade for a size M/L in similar condition. Anyone?

    Would consider selling if no trade materializes in a few days.

    edit: decided to keep as length is the same between sizes.

    This thing rocks!! Have skied pretty much everyday of the 2019-20 ski season in it. Carries a load really well. Straps down tight and stays cinched.

    6ft - 205# : L/XL fits well. Could have also gone M/L or L/XL.

    If youíre smaller than I go M/L

    Does this vest fit the 1.0 or 2.0 RAS system?

    Agreed. Iím 5í10Ē 198 and went L/XL and with it on snug it has room left on the tension straps. The only beef i have is the torso length. Iím a normal length torso and every size has the same length torso, long. Not a giant issue but I feel I need to pull the bottom part down after getting off the lift. It does cary and wear quite well. Donít realize its on when skiing. Doesnít effect balance like a pack can at all.

    Has anyone worn/tried on both L/XL and M/L to confirm torso length is the same? The long torso is my issue... with the waist/ hip belt where I want, the shoulders feel up to my ears. I'm only 5'7", but a solid 180. I could live with the width of the L/XL by cinching the side straps, but the length feels awkward.

    edit: shitty photo added. Other short folks like this?

    I tried them both on. Same torso length, stupid.
    They donít ride up on me like your photo, my issue is the lower section. Having to pull it down after the lift ride gets old.

    Damn, good info. Gonna be looking at grabbing one of these soon since getting yelled at by lifties to remove backpack(with is arguably smaller/thinner than this) is getting old. Looks like I'll be needing L/XL since I'm 6'3" 185ish.

    The north face Powder guide ABS vest that I have is quite a bit shorter than the dakine vest. you could give that one a whirl. I've been very happy with mine the past 2 winters.

    Well, if there is no difference in length between sizes, I'm going to keep this one and give it a try. Thanks for the interest and info everybody.
