    Kamber 32L Backpack

    From avy gear to goggles, the Osprey Kamber 32 Backpack is a mid-sized ski pack big enough to carry your backcountry essentials. Made from durable fabric and featuring quick and easy ski and snowboard carry straps, this pack gives you carrying versatility for convenience and comfort in the backcountry. The main compartment separates wet gear from dry gear, and it's accessed from the 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. The dual-position helmet net quickly and securely stows your helmet for a cool and comfortable climb.

    The Kamber 32 features a LightWire peripheral frame and 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. Tuckaway loops allow you to easily attach ice tools, while zippered pockets on the hipbelt give you easy access to essentials. Compression straps keep your load secure as you move.

    I love this pack!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Two seasons in - I love this pack. Keeps all my avy gear in a convenient and easy to reach pocket, the suspension is streamlined and secure, hip pockets for munchies and the main compartment holds more than seems reasonable for a day use pack. I've used two methods of ski carry (A-framed and diagonal) and both worked really well, even with boots attached .The only time I leave this at home is for overnight hut trips.

    32L but feels smaller

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    As a splitboarder, I need the most high speed gear so I can have every advantage to keep up with my skier friends. The bag checks all the boxes that I find important except one. First, the good - it is slim, carries my board multiple ways, has a bladder container that I will actually use, and can actually fit goggles and other small misc. things in the lined pocket. My only complaint is that it seems small - if you are debating getting the smaller version of this pack, I would strongly consider getting this size pack. Also, you have to unclip the lift loafers every time to open the main compartment. Minor inconvenience but again, I am trying to keep up with my high speed skier friends here! Otherwise, the material will definitely last years of backcountry wear and tear while helping you crush your objectives!

    KAMBER 32 L or 42 L?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought the Kamber 32 L two-three seasons ago and have put it through the wringer on long and short backcountry ski missions in CAl - Tahoe, Eastern Sierra, Shasta.. Its features are well laid out in many other reviews. They are all perfect.

    But if you are going for missions that include skins, boot crampons, ice axe and the associated weather gear and food/water that an all day trip involves, I would most certainly get the 42L. The 42L would pack down with a minimalist set up and not require gymnastics or sacrifices on those days when you have to get it all in. I have taken to strapping my skins on the outside which has alleviated my overstuffing the 32 L pack. But the 42 L also has a better helmet carry system and if you are frustrated with the shoulder strap entry on the 32L, the 42 allows you to open the top and stuff it on it.

    Great, versatile

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great Pack! Love it for long touring days hold everything I need for big ski mountaineering days and is slim and light enough for short dawn patrol days as well. Wet/dry separated compartments keep everything organized well and dry. The rear entry was a must for me when I was looking for a ski pack, wish the shoulder load adjusters straps didn't have to be buckled to get into the pack but that a small issue. The helmet carrier could use to be a little bigger it doesn't fit my hard shell ski helmet from smith, but it does fit my Black Diamond climbing/ski helmet, which I use more anyways. Overall, great ski pack would highly recommend it.

    A great pack for skiing.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got this as a gift for my brother and he has loved it this season. It fits all he needs on a day tour, and he says it fits him like a glove, comfortable on the way up and down. It replaced a 20 year old pack, a big step up!

    Impressed From The Jump

      Osprey is one of the most renowned pack brands out there so when you are looking at the Kamber 32 you at least can find the quality can be a given. And it is, I just packed this thing to the brim with a full resort clothing kit, my airplane essentials and helmet/boots on top and didn't fail.

      Great backpack but... a splitboarder, where do I put my collapsed poles while I'm riding? I had a similar question about the helmet because the straps are too short for my helmet and I see a few folks chimed in with answer, so I'm hoping someone has an answer for this one too. Lately I've taken to riding with poles but I'd much prefer the option to strap them up!

        Hey there - do the poles not fit in the outer pocket? Not sure what size they are collapsed. And are you saying the helmet hammock is not big enough for your helmet? Let me know so I can help. Thank you!

        Great backpack

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

        I got this for my wife and one for myself. They are large and hold a large water bag. Also can pack enough for a day pack, possibly a couple days. Definitely a good choice if you want something that will last

        Kamber, Kan Do!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Let me start by saying I love Osprey. I really think they make some of the best packs available on the market, and their warranty is the absolute best. Their products always scream quality, and this pack is no exception to that rule. I will always recommend them.

        The 32 is the perfect size Kamber for me. I've used it as a day pack for the resort (it cinches down just fine), loaded with tools and a big med kit for when I work on the hill or I'm on a SAR, and as a day-long touring pack. It's super well-built with strong material and fabrics. A+ build, really. It has amazing features like oversized hipbelt pockets (seriously, other manufacturers should take note and make their hipbelt pockets bigger), diagonal and A frame ski carry with beefy ski loops, an axe carry, a great suspension, insulated hydration sleeve, helmet carry, the right amount of pockets, etc. It also skis exceptionally well. My older 35 L touring pack did not ride as well on my back and the difference when making turns in both the resort and backcountry is extremely noticeable. I forget the Kamber is on my back when skiing hard, which cannot be understated as an amazing feature.

        This pack is so close to being the perfect skiing pack for me, it's not even funny (if I could, I'd give it 4.5 stars on here). But I couldn't give full 5 stars for one reason: the only way to access the main compartment is back panel entry. This might seem nit-picky, but there is a method to my packing madness, depending on if I'm skiing the resort, working on the hill, or touring. Not having top access to the main compartment limits me in accessing critical gear that I pack in certain ways depending on my objective(s) for the day. It's also difficult to use all the space of the main compartment when packing - being able to open a zipper at the top and pack stuff downward really makes a difference. If Osprey adds a U or J zipper access to main compartment along with back panel entry, I'd buy another Kamber 32 in a heartbeat, as the pack would then be absolutely perfect. All that being said, I will use this current pack happily forever because it really is that great...and I can get over my aforementioned gripe.

        Thanks Osprey for another amazing tool to help me succeed outside!

        Kamber, Kan Do!

        Such a great review! and photo shot! The size of the Kamber 32 made it difficult to offer dual entrance to the main pocket due to design, feature and price considerations. Remember, you still have the front pocket too! However, we DO offer the Kamber 42 that has dual main compartment access!

        Thank you for such a thoughtful review! Happy Trails!

        Setting the bar high for touring packs.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought this pack after I planned a yurt trip for later in the Winter. There is a ton of room for all of your gear plus loads more for your sleeping bag and food. The separated compartments honestly make too much sense for keeping your wet gear away, plus having easy access to your probe and shovel. The pack has the perfect fit and was clearly well thought through on the design.

        Setting the bar high for touring packs.

        My favorite bag

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've used this bag for touring, for regular day hikes, and for going to the coffee shop! I love the adjustable straps in making it a more sleek and slim backpack. But the rubber guards on the straps for a snowboard are what I brag about when I'm showing off this pack. It's so lightweight that I barely notice it when boarding down the trails.

        Highly recommend this pack for anyone who's looking for a good daypack, touring bag, or if you want an Osprey pack and aren't completely sure where to start your addiction.

        Does Osprey have a redesign in mind?

          I was about to purchase this pack (up grading from my 24l Dakine) but wonder if Osprey is going redesign it soon? Many retailers no longer have it in active stock and are selling it at the $126 price which often indicates a closeout. On the plus side as usual with Osprey packs this one fits better than other ski packs- the waistbelt is wrap around goodness my Dakine constantly needs tightening.

          All day comfort

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          When looking for a pack my number one concern is whether or not it will carry weight comfortably. I want to be out in nature all day long, so my pack can't be driving me crazy. Osprey knows how to carry loads by using your bodies natural structure, and their amazing technology and development. They know how to create packs that sit on shoulders properly, and can carry weight efficiently.
          This pack also has amazing storage capacity, water, snacks/lunch, extra layers, skins, probe and shovel, goggles, sunglasses, gloves, and more can be fit inside this easily accessible pack. I loves its practicality, and really love its look!

          Best to buy

          • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

          Of all the packs out there for touring, I felt the most comfortable and the most excited, about this one when gifting it to my wife for touring season. It was her first time and I wanted to make sure she had something that could hold all the gear and be easy to wear trekking up mountains. It has more than enough pockets to hold everything, all the zippers are thick and big so you don't have to worry about frozen hands breaking or ripping any.

          Another Winner

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I cant say enough good things about osprey packs, I own 3. This pack is no exception. the quality is unbeatable for how inexpensive this pack is. I have yet to go for a tour with this pack but I have skied this pack in bounds a number of times. It skis so well, very little movement while its on my back. and all the buckles are fairly easy to use with gloves on. It has plenty of room for day tours here in the Wasatch. I would have no problem keeping a shovel, probe, extra layer, full bladder, and a two course lunch in this bad boy. I love it! Cant wait to get this pack in the backcountry!

          Unanswered Question

          How much room is there for a probe? I’m worried that mine might be too long when it’s collapsed for this bag.

          Unanswered Question

          How well suited would this pack be to non-snowboarding ventures? I like the size and shape but would be using it for day hikes in the summer mostly.
