The LF 40L uses 100% recycled fabrics that use UHMWPE (generic Dyneema) in different constructions.

  • The main fabric is Challenge Ultra 400X which is 2x more tear-resistant and 8x more abrasion-resistant than competing ultralight fabrics.
  • The cinch top is a 210d nylon with UHMWPE ripstop.
  • The rolltop is a 50d nylon ripstop with UHMWPE cross-ply.

The LF 40L has 2 compartments that you can quickly stow gear in without touching a zipper.

Stowable roll top
Storm mode → Bluebird mode
Storm mode → Bluebird mode

Roll up the rolltop for a weatherproof closure and get an extra compartment. If it goes blue and you don't want to deal with the roll top use the stow clips to keep the roll top out of the way.

Helmet carry
Integrated helmet carry
Integrated helmet carry

We had enough of the dungy, strap-on helmet carry systems. We have seen too many people lose them, and they aren't secure enough to put anything inside your helmet like crampons. We built our helmet carry right into the pack so it can't be lost. It is also high up enough to be out of the way of the diagonal ski carry and still allows the pack to sit flat on the front.

Ice Tool Carry
No snag ice tool carry
No snag ice tool carry

The ice tool carry keeps the picks of the tools fully enclosed and secure so they don't get snagged or fall out.

Avy Tool Pocket
Quick Access to your tools
Quick Access to your tools

When designing the LF 40L we wanted to prioritize quick access to your avy tools, but really quick access to your probe for snow epth checks. The avy tool access doubles as a pass through to the main compartment, and a waterproof divider keeps the main compartment snow free. The divider has a slot to sit flat against shovels with large necks. The pocket is made to accomodate shovels up to 11" on width.

Removable Frame
Frame distributes weight
Frame distributes weight

The aluminum frame runs the perimeter of the pack, dips behind your head, and down to the hip pads distributing the weight of the pack and providing rigidity for ski/snowboard carry. It weighs 80g and can be removed.

Back Panel Insert
Seat, splint, sled
Seat, splint, sled

Removable back panel insert weighs 110g and is made of a plastic layer and closed cell foam sewn together. It provides rigidity to the back panel and can be used to kneel or sit on, or for first aid applications like splinting or insulating an injured patient from the snow.

“A new brand called Raide just made one of the best backcountry ski packs ever.”

“For now, if I was buying a new do-it-all pack for this winter, this is the pack I would purchase.”

“I do my best to avoid certain overused, cliché words and phrases like “groundbreaking” when I’m writing reviews like this. But in the case of the Raide LF 40L, I think that term is justified.”

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

We research and develop for steep terrain. We believe that the best gear isn’t dependant on any one variable, like being the lightest, but a combination of style, weight, durability, and functionality to address a certain need.
