Does Osprey make a bag just like this but with the option to carry skis too? I'm taking a 6 week backcountry trip this fall but I'm an avid skier and don't want to purchase two seperate packs...would this be suitable?

Hey Kiki,

They don't make a pack exactly like this with ski carries on it. You would probably want to look at the Variant 52. They are definitely a simpler pack in terms of pocket options but they have more on the exterior of the pack for ski's etc. They are extremely comfortable and bomb proof. I have the old version of the Variant which is the Exposure and it is holding up amazingly well with some seriously rough treatment. I would say it is nearly as comfortable but not quite and also the venting on the back isn't as good as this pack.
Hope that helps.
