The Karve 16 Backpack is a ski pack from Osprey. Some of the features include a zippered front pocket, padded front panel and the ability to carry skis in two configurations. Side Z-style compression straps help compress the load for comfortable lift riding. The Karve also features a specific pocket for ski goggles and a shovel blade.
The lift gives you a good start, but once you reach the gate with the loaded Osprey Karve 16 Backpack on your back, you leave the resort for the deep snow and solitude of the sidecountry. Once you secure your probe, shovel, and other backcountry essentials on and inside this pack, the entire mountain range becomes the stomping ground for you and your crew. Since you can easily carry skis or a snowboard, you can search for the ultimate lines no matter what your board choice happens to be that day.
The Karve 16 Pack offers plenty of cargo space for extra layers, food or skins. The front zippered compartment has specific pocketing for a shovel blade and ski goggles. Side Z-style compression straps help compress the load for comfortable lift riding. Designed For: Lift-Served and Sidecountry Riding HydraForm(TM) Reservoir NOT Included
