The Raid is a 22 liter backpack that is fast and robust. Great for daily adventures, the new pack from Ski Trab uses stronger rip-stop nylon than a true race pack, but keeps the features you’ve come to expect. A quick carry system lets you access your skis without taking off the pack. Generous mesh pockets adorn the front and are good for skins, fluids, or layers. Shoulder strap stowage and two zippered mesh waist pockets reduce the need for taking off the pack. The Raid comes with a removable back protector that slides behind a mesh screen designed to dump some heat. It’s topped off with compression straps so you can carry your gear tightly for less slop while skiing.
Update 2016/17: Trab updated the color scheme and modified the upper axe/pole attachment.
