    Backcountry essential.

    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.

    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!

      Great touring pack!

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

      Bought this as a gift for an avid backcountry skier. He said it fit great with lots of adjustability for that perfect fit. The rear entry allows great easy access with gloves on. The helmet carry was his favorite part!

      Heli Pro 24 L < Kamber 32 L

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I had been using my Dakine Heli Pro 24 L for touring, but I am getting more serious about backcountry skiing and realized I needed a more serious pack. This it the perfect size for long day trips, but never feels too bulky on the descent. Has a pocket for my rescue gear that is seperate from everything else. Very supportive as well

      A big upgrade

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

      This is pretty much the best bang for buck you can get on a pack. The two compartments (front/back entry) allow you to keep your avy equipment separate (this compartment features two placement positions for your probe and shovel handle there) and accessible, while the back entry is great for storing extra gear and lunch.

      Best pack ever

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I used Osprey snowboarding packs about 11 years ago and I'm back. I saw this in a shop, ordered the exact same one and it's just about perfect. Intuitive design, great colors, exceptional quality. I love the large goggle pocket on top, I can fit my Sony a7sII with the 24-70 2.8 G Master in it.

      The Best Touring Pack!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I used this pack all season for splitboarding and have no complaints. It is built to last with strong components everywhere. The snowboard carry and A-frame carry are easily adjustable and work great. The hydration sleeve is next to your back to keep that weight in close. The oversize zipper to the main compartment is super durable and easy to use. The goggle pocket has a super soft material to keep your lenses scratch-free. This pack is more comfortable than most of the competitors with well-padded straps and waist belt. Overall the Kamber is very user-friendly, well designed, and built with tough and quality materials.

      Great Pack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have owned osprey packs in the past.
      Flaws I encountered with previous models were uncommon and commonly consisted of zipper malfunction and buckles breaking. Osprey has always accommodated me in any replacement parts needed.

      This pack is really well-made and high quality. I love the durable shell it has on the back to protect whatever cargo you may have. Also, a huge plus is the extra zipper on the larger pocket so you can access any area of the pocket without jumbling around all the zippers.
      I really like the large size of the hip pockets, great for ski-touring along with the helmet sleeve which is easily accessible.

      I'd say this is the best osprey pack I've come in contact with.

      Great backcountry pack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bought this to carry my skis, boots and gear for a day trip up Mt. Washington and couldn't be happier with it. Great size for a day trip, comfortable straps and back padding, and fits well so I hardly noticed it skiing down. My only 2 complaints are - the front pocket is sort of a nuisance to access as you have to unbuckle the shoulder straps to access it, and I wish there was a small side or back pocket for quick access to water and snacks.

      Overall, the best backcountry day pack on the market in my opinion.

      Nicholas, thank you for the great review and the recommendation! The strap across the zipper is a backup safety to assure closure even if, God forbid, the zipper would ever not do it's job. So we cross over the zipper path on purpose.

      I hear you on the other pocket, though - I will pass it on!

      Bomb proof and comfy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been out with this pack on roughly thirty something tours this season. I have used just about everything this pack features as well and I have nothing but good things to say about it. I also use the Osprey Packs Hydraulics Hydration Reservoir with it in a 3L bladder and it is awesome and I still have room to fit all my layers, my shell, food/beer, and crampons for a good day trip. The dry pocket and the cold/wet pocket design is awesome and being able to carry my helmet on top of the pack as well as the back is great. I splitboard and have carried the board in A-frame and strapped to the back, both positions are comfy. This would easily fit a ski with a shovel width of 140mm, so for sure you can fit a fat ski in it, in the A-frame. I carry quite a bit of gear as well, my wet pocket usually has skins, shovel blade/handle, maps, slope meter, and my trusty snow study saw. The back panel is great too as you can easily access your dry pocket when you lay the pack on the ground. The goggle pocket is great as well.

      I'm 5'7" and 180 lbs, I should have got the S/M but went with the M/L. This would have fit my torso better as the only thing that changes is the length of the pack so that it accommodates smaller torso's. I still had no problem as I do long tours that take 8 hours as well. Great piece of gear!

      If you have questions, feel free to reach out.

      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.
