    Details

    When snow’s on the ground, the Kode should be on your back.

    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. It includes a reservoir hanger and an insulated router for hands-free and ice-free drinking.

    Well designed ski pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you need to haul a bunch of gear to get up and down the mountain this is the pack for you. I love how well thought out the entire design is and how all the different pockets are easily accessible even when you load skis, helmet, axes, and a coat strapped to the outside. The ergonomics of this pack are excellent as long as you know how to place weight in a pack and adjust the straps this will carry more than you need to the top and provide comfort for the decent.

    Useful Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is a well thought out pack with many nice features. Easy access to you gear and equipment. Plenty roomy when you need to carry a lot of stuff but cinches down nicely when lightly loaded as well. I would like to be able to access compartments with out having to unbuckle straps in order to unzip compartments but that is a small price to pay when you can cinch down the straps to securely carry your stuff.

    Hi Greg, thank you for the feedback and review. The strap design across the zippers is intentional, as we would HATE for you to be in the backcountry and something fails on the zipper... without a strap to secure, you would be SOL. Agreed... a small price to pay!

    Enjoy your Osprey!

    Osprey Kode 42

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I am a big Osprey fan but I have to say that although this pack looks great it was heavy and hurt my back on my first Mountain accent with it. I would return it but Backcountry return policy is nothing like REI return policy where if you dont like it they will take it back no problem. Last time I buy from Backcountry.

    Choice Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Although I have only had a few chances to use this pack, it has only exceeded my expectations. First off, it has a pocket for everything: Hydration bladder, goggles, keys, ice axe holders, etc. It also has the back panel zipper for easy access to everything in your pack. Second, it has the insulation sleeve for the hydration bladder hose to keep the water from freezing on super cold days. Finally, it has a ski and snowboard carry, and plenty of room inside for all other essentials on your alpine adventure of choice. I would highly recommend this pack for any and all alpine and winter backcountry ventures!

    This pack is the BOMB!!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Its is my favorite pack by far. It has tons of pockets and really easy access via a zipper that goes around the back of the back plate. It has 2 main pockets and two pockets on the top pack cover. It also has an insulated sleeve for a bladder system. Its a perfect pack for backcountry activities. You can carry both a set of skis or a board vertically on your back. The traps are also reinforced with rubber to protect the pack from the sharp edges of skis or boards.

    This bag can take abuse!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased this pack in the fall when I was looking for a pack to go travel around South America with. I wanted a pack that I could live out of for 4 months and then use for touring afterwards.

    I could not be happier with this pack. I was able to fit everything I needed in here to explore and hike around Patagonia as well as throw onto busses and abuse. I have not tested the waterproofness of the pack in wet snow yet, but hiking for 3 days in the driving rain around Fitz Roy this pack kept everything dry inside.

    I would purchase this bag over and over again.

    Is there a women's version of this pack? It looks like EXACTLY what I'm looking for, but I'm only seeing the men's. I'm 5'9" 155lb with a torso length of 19" so I'm definitely not a teeny woman by any means; usually men's packs only fit me wonky through the shoulders/boobs.

    I'll be backpacking Europe for a month in a few weeks and I am looking for a quality backpack to make the journey with me and I'm wondering if anyone has used this pack for that purpose. I'm a big skier and I would really enjoy being able to use the backpack I purchase for camping and for some possible backcountry adventures where I would need to strap skis on my back. I know this isn't the best pack for a month long Eurotrip but I'm just wondering if it would get by.

    why the kode 42 over the variant 37 for ski mountaineering or multiday trips with both climbing and skiing

    Best Answer

    Hey Joshua, so my touring partner uses the Kode 42 and I the variant. Some major differences I noted: Dedicated avy tool pocket, additional pockets on the hip belt, helmet carry sleeve, and vertical snowboard carry straps.

    On size, yes the kode is larger but its wider and deeper, while the variant's coller can be opened up giving it about 10L more space. Which is great until you need something from the bottom of the back.

    The Variant carries skis\splitboard very well in an A-frame while carrying ice tools, something the Kode doesn't do.



    All in all if you're looking for more of a climbing pack go variant. If you're doing more backcountry skiing with out climbing gear go with the Kode.

    I seen you're question about the Mutant also. Its a stripped down version of the Variant. Rucksack style, no bells and whistles. Can't carry skis, no pockets for shovel head.

    Hope that helps.

    Does the lid come off or is it fixed to the pack? Would be nice to be able to shed a few ounces if you want.

    Best Answer

    Hey Andy,



    I called Osprey to double-check, and they confirmed that the lid of the pack is sewn on. Hope this information helps-- if you need anything else, don't hesitate to reach out! 1-800-409-4502 ext 4456 or llabar@backcountry.com.

    Is the top lid floating - as in does it...

    Is the top lid floating -

    as in does it have extendable straps at the rear -

    so as to allow for pack height extension?

    Is it waterproof in not just melting snow...

    Is it waterproof in not just melting snow but decent solid rain??
