A classic patrol-style pack with a waterproof twist, the Arc'teryx Khamski 38 ski pack will delight backcountry purists with moisture-shedding fabric and a carry system for skis and splitboards. Designed for efficiency and longevity, this hard-wearing, premium backcountry pack stands up to the elements with AC2 fabric that shrugs off snow and water. C2 (composite construction) suspension uses fewer layers in a laminated back panel that is fused directly into the bag to reduce weight while preserving structure and comfort. Suspension holds the pack close to the body, minimizing load movement and backward pull for extended comfort and energy-efficient movement under weight. Anatomically shaped, hypercell foam shoulder straps with adjustable sternum strap; laminated hipbelt with 50mm webbing. When carrying heavy loads, the 6005-T6 grade aluminum M-bar stays transfer the weight to the hipbelt; stays are removable for lighter loads and a greater range of motion. Top/side loading main compartment with double-pull, easy-open collar cordlock system; extendable, silicone-coated collar and removable top lid add capacity. A-frame or diagonal ski/splitboard carry options. Dual haul loops/carry handles permit hauling or clipping off at a snow anchor; dual P'ax ice tool carry system. Front kangaroo pocket for shovel, probe and snow saw; zippered lid compartment with key clip; small organizer pocket inside full-length side zipper; hidden bottom pocket.
You can carry all you need for a full day of backcountry riding with the Arc'teryx Khamski 38 Backpack and do it in comfort. The double aluminum stays and high-density foam back panel keep the load stable and supported on your back. Hypercell anatomic shoulder straps with Spacermesh and a laminated padded hip-belt ensure distribution on the hips for back- and shoulder-saving comfort. An adjustable sternum strap helps with stabilization. Construction-wise, this pack is burly as they come, with abrasion-resistant body and waterproof, air-permeable urethane coating on both sides. The back panel has stretch woven fabric for next-to-body comfort, and the collar is coated with silicone for water-resistance. Talk about features: this pack has designated pockets for shovel, probe, snow saw, and snow-science kit. Attach your board(s) with A-frame or diagonal carries, and put your ice tool in the Dual P'Ax system. Access all your goods with the full-length zip or from the top flap. Now just cinch down the compression straps, and break trail.
