    Details

    For your essentials and then some.

    From skinning into a backcountry hut to steep and deep days, the Osprey Kamber 42 Backpack is the perfect bag for all your backcountry essentials and then some. Made from durable fabric and featuring easy to use ski and snowboard carry straps, this pack carries all your gear and is capable of taking some serious abuse in the backcountry. The main compartment separates your wet gear from dry gear, and it is accessed from either the top or 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. A LightWire peripheral frame 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.

    The Kamber 42 includes a number of features to enhance your backcountry experience. The top pocket is removable for shorter excursions and includes a goggle pocket and helmet carry. An under-lid rope carry system and zippered pocket keeps mountaineering gear secure and organized. Attached loops allow you to easily attach ice tools and can be tucked away when not in use. Dual upper and lower side compression straps keep your loads secure as you move.

    Solid ski pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used this pack on long day tours and overnights. Very comfortable and great function. Back panel for access if very useful. A frame ski carry is also easy to use. Only 4 stars because the pack is a little overdone on straps and buckles. Not quite as simple in design as I prefer.

    Love It!

    • 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. The Osprey products also have a lifetime warranty.

    Great, but...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I must say, the quality of this product, thought that was put into it makes it a very good purchase. However, there is one thing that disapoints a lot - helmet system. I have a black version, so those elements I'm supposed to hook my holder to are not that easy to find when you're in a hurry or the light is not that great in the morning. The pack offers few options of holding a helmet, yet you can't miss an impression the elements are badly located. But this is not the worst. If you want to unhook the holder, prepare yourself for a struggle. Even without gloves. Osprey is proud of their glove friendly zippers, yet the helmet holder is not that friendly. Especially when it's piercing cold. You actually start to swear to it. Yes you do. It ought to be much much more comfortable to use this thing. It's not that complicated, so I don't see a reason it should be that troublesome.

    Besides that tiny winy problem, the pack is superb. Its fine for a few days in the field, as well as for a short time excursions. Even when the 42 is not filled to it's full capacity, I was still able to wear my skis and all quite easily. That was a huge problem with my previous touring pack from another respected manufacturer.

    And yeah - I love the design ;)

    Amazingly Well-Designed

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this pack. I have two sizes, the 32 and 42. I use the 32 for dawn patrols and light days (truthfully I could probably get away with the 22 there) I use the 42 for all day affairs, rope accessed lines, and any other time when layers, food, and extra gear is a must. The removable top lid, and options for rope carry are great. I love the access points to your dry gear and avy pocket. The bag fits well and stays put while skinning up and shredding down. Multiple options for ski/snowboard carry are perfect for every type of terrain. Ice tool carry works great and allows you to stash poles as well. The goggle pocket and helmet carry pouch are great for the uphill.
    Overall this pack is laid-out well, durable, comfortable, and perfect for all your backcountry adventures.

    Accessible and Easy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    From yurt trips to traveling from airport to airport this is your Pack. 40L size is going to be for long day trips (rope, lunches, dinner, etc) or weekend ski trips. You are able to latch this thing down and use for the day with minimal gear, so don't be worried about only bringing one pack with you on your ski trip. Favorite features are the bucket style top entrance paired with the zippered back entrance. No more dumping your pack out to find out where you stashed your goggles. Overall, very happy with this pack!
