The perfect sized pack for short tours and backcountry missions.
In bounds, out the gate, or full-on backcountry — the Osprey Kode 32 Backpack doesn't discriminate when it comes to a day out in the snow. This mid-sized ski pack holds your avy tools and other essential equipment for short tours or shredding the backcountry.
The Osprey Kode 32 was constructed from 420 denier nylon. It features an Airscape back panel that allows ventilation between you and the pack. For added comfort, the adjustable shoulder and chest straps have been molded from EVA foam. Meanwhile, compression straps and panel loading allow the pack to be configured according to what you need to carry. From ice tools to a snowboard, a dozen different arrangements are possible. Additionally, hip belt pockets allow easy access to your camera or phone. Everything is kept dry with an integrated rain cover. Gear carrying is for naught if you're parched by the time that you reach the peaks. For this reason, an external hydration pocket has been added in order to keep your thirst at bay.

I have a question. I really like this pack, have tried it on in the store a couple of times, but I never thought to evaluate the breathability of the back panel. I will be using this backpack in cold weather, but also want to use it for warm or hot weather. If you think this pack will make me sweat and not offer some breeze, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Thanks!
This pack is specifically designed for backcountry skiing, so I suspect you will find its breathability wanting when it comes to warm weather!
The shoulder straps will be fine for summer time stuff but the back panel of ski\alpine packs is designed to shed snow as well as be comfortable. They will for sure keep you sweaty. That said, ski packs are awesome for hiking because of the unique pocket layouts and compressibility. If you're not going to be using it for a lot of skiing but mostly hiking you may want to look into something else.
I just got this backpack as a gift and was pretty excited to use it. However when I went to strap in my snowboard (I haven't jumped the splitboard band wagon..yet) the reinforced strap on the bottom front side of the pack was oddly difficult to tighten down because of the extra material. When I've strapped in my snowboard with previous packs, the strap cinched tight without a problem. I have yet to find an easy way to tighten this strap down without adjusting it a bunch to fit with my snowboard. I feel like I am missing something if this pack has only good reviews. Is there a simpler way of adjusting the reinforced strap? I love all the other features of this pack and really would like to use it this season! please help if you have any suggestions :)
Essential Winter pack.

This is a great pack, it is large enough to carry a lot of gear, but not too big that it's obnoxious. It has a ski/snowboard carry, waist belt, shovel pocket, gear loops, enough pockets for accessories. It fits all my avalanche survival gear well and I can throw in a pair of snow boots and a couple of layers. It's really strong and lightweight.

What probe fits the best in the osprey 32 I bought the Backcountry.com 230 probe and it s a bit too long for this pack. Any Suggestions?
The Osprey Kode 32 Backpack is on the smaller end and will limit your avy tool selection a little bit, but I guess you already figured that out. I would suggest the G3 190 Carbon Speed TECH SL Probe as a solid option for smaller sized packs.

Hi, I've noticed the newer season bag has zips that go further down as well as an extra pocket. I am wondering if you are stocking this latest version of this pack as well?

Super stoked on this pack. I upgraded to this from a 22L pack because I found myself wishing I had more space on day tours. The back panel, hip belt, and load lifters make it really stable on the up and the down. I have also really appreciated the glove-friendly buckles on the straps on cold days. The spandex, stashable helmet carry is great for keeping snow out of your helmet on the skin track. So far, I can't find anything I would change with this pack. For those of you with experience with the Kode packs of the past, it seems that they have significantly updated the series this year. I would highly recommend this pack for day touring.
