From skinning into a backcountry hut to steep and deep days, the Osprey Kamber 42 Backpack is the perfect bag for all your backcountry essentials and then some. Made from durable fabric and featuring easy to use ski and snowboard carry straps, this pack carries all your gear and is capable of taking some serious abuse in the backcountry. The main compartment separates your wet gear from dry gear, and it is accessed from either the top or back panel (even with your skis or board attached). A J-zipper with an extra-large opening gives you quick access to avalanche safety gear. A LightWire peripheral frame provides natural torsional movement for comfort whether you are hiking up or skiing down. Padded shoulder straps adjust to sit comfortably against your shoulders, while the padded hipbelt allows you to carry your load with ease. The Kamber 42 includes a number of features to enhance your backcountry experience. The top pocket is removable for shorter excursions and includes a goggle pocket and helmet carry. An under-lid rope carry system and zippered pocket keeps mountaineering gear secure and organized. Attached loops allow you to easily attach ice tools and can be tucked away when not in use. Dual upper and lower side compression straps keep your loads secure as you move.
Featuring quick and easy access to critical snow safety gear and more than enough room for technical ascents and multi-day hut trips, the Osprey Kamber 42 is ideal for both snowboarders and skiers alike.

The Osprey Kamber 42 snow pack brings tailored fit and function into the backcountry. It was developed with feedback from professional guides, ski patrollers and dedicated weekend warriors.
DESCRIPTIONFeaturing 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.KEY ATTRIBUTESAVALANCHE GEAR STORAGE POCKETExtra-large front pocket with J-zip access for avalanche safety gear secure inside the pack.
