What is the advantage of this Osprey Kamber 42 Men's Ski Pack?
Since Osprey s founding, every single product design bearing the Osprey name has passed through the hands of owner and founder Mike Pfotenhauer, undergoing relentless scrutiny. From stitching the first lines of custom-fitted packs, to meticulously designing innovative products with intuitive features, to forging personal relationships with the sewing operators who construct the packs, Mike has been the unbreakable thread of the company.

Featuring quick and easy access to critical snow safety gear and more than enough room for the gear you need on technical ascents and multi-day hut trips, the Kamber 42 is ideal for both snowboarders and skiers alike. Safety matters most in the backcountry, so we developed a large J-zip access panel on the front of the pack with multiple, glove-friendly zipper pulls so you can get to your probe and shovel without wasting critical seconds. On long ascents deploy the stowable helmet carry when appropriate to stay cool, and if you get thirsty there s an internal hydration sleeve and an insulated harness sleeve to keep your bite valve handy and ice-free. The Kamber 42 accommodates nearly every ski and snowboard carry option including vertical, A-frame, diagonal and horizontal vertical snowboard carry with smartly reinforced contact points to protect from sharp edges. Other winter specific features like a scratch-free fleece-lined goggle pocket round out one of the most capable, durable, and functional technical backcountry snow packs we have ever made. Technical ascents demand ice axes or tools, and two tool loops with bungee attachment provide secure attachment when they aren t in use. Under the dual-compartment and removable top-lid you ll find a rope compression strap for glacier travel and sharp ridgelines. Even when loaded with up to 40lbs the LightWire suspension, padded hipbelt and contoured shoulder straps provide a comfortable carry even when breaking trail toward distant peaks. When you set your pack down to transition or for a snack, zippered backpanel access keeps the snow out of your gear and provides easy access to gear no matter where you stuffed it in this dual-access top loading machine.
Customer reviewsGreat value with plenty of room and features.
This is a fantastic pack. I use it for hiking, traveling, etc. The integrated hip pockets on the kidney strap are great for carrying your phone or wallet, snacks, utility tools, first aid items and so on while giving you access without taking the pack off. I highly recommend the blue green color combination. It s very visible in the snow and easy to pick out in the woods if you re hiking with a group. There are no tears in the seams and the zippers are top-notch. The large zipper loops make it easy to access your pack with gloves on, too. All in all it s a solid pack for the money.
