Incorporating design feedback from backcountry professionals and athletes, the updated Osprey Kode 42 snow pack adds logical organization and sharp style to a full day or overnight off-piste venture. Wide ski loops and glove-friendly buckles let you carry skis diagonally or A-frame style; reinforced front-panel and hipbelt wings allow vertical or horizontal snowboard carry. Anatomically shaped shoulder straps, hipbelt and back panel feature supportive EVA foam padding; adjustable sternum strap features a whistle built into the buckle. Internal HDPE frame sheet provides structural support and transfers load weight to the hips. Pack volume easily fits the tools you need for a day of backcountry fun; improved access and organization offer convenience and aid in emergencies where speed matters. Top and back-panel entry to the main compartment lets you access gear when carrying skis or a snowboard and helps keep shoulder straps and hipbelt out of the snow. Zippered protective sleeve with external drain and insulated tube route accommodate a reservoir (sold separately); zippered interior pocket helps keep small items organized. Extra-large, front-panel J-zipper ensures fast access to the avalanche-kit pocket, even when a board or skis are attached; inside sleeves hold shovel handles and probes. Top lid pocket features an integrated helmet attachment and under-lid rope carry; attachment loop lets you lash on an ice tool. The Osprey Kode 42 snow pack also features reinforced wear points, a scratch-free goggles pocket and zippered hipbelt pockets.

When the not-so-beaten path seems endless, and the bottom of the mountains has disappeared beneath the clouds, you'll keep on going knowing that your Osprey Kode 42 pack holds everything but the kitchen sink. Avalanche professionals, ski guides, and backcountry powder freaks flock to the Osprey Kode 42 Backpack for its comfort, versatility, large capacity, and streamlined design. The Kode features multiple carry options for both boards and skis, as well as plenty of internal panel storage for all of your essential winter items. Durable 420 denier nylon was used to construct the Kode 42, and adjustable torso straps are lined with EVA foam. With dual top and back panel access, the Kode is easy to organize and load. In addition, the Osprey features external straps configured to hold everything from skis to ice axes and rope. Hip belt pockets provide easy access to your camera or phone, and all of the buckles are glove-friendly. Finally, you won't get thirsty in your outdoor pursuits with an internal hydration pocket.
