    Full-frontal functionality.

    As most women know, backpacks are often the unfortunate victim of the pink-and-shrink laser beam. However, designers over at Osprey heard the call for a functional, women-specific touring backpack, and answered with the Kresta 30 Backpack. And in typical Osprey fashion, the Kresta has just the right amount of features necessary for a day of touring in the alpine without skimping on the overall fit or functionality.

    More specifically, this pack is fashioned with a women-specific Light Wire suspension system that when combined with the padded help belt and stabilization straps, provide a comfortable and pressure-free haul. The thermoformed, contoured back panel sheds snow easily, and ultimately reduces the build-up of frozen precipitation on your backside. Not to mention, a deployable helmet net makes carrying your helmet a breeze, and the tuck-away ice tool loop ensures you're able to haul technical tools without worrying about losing them en route.

    In keeping with its versatile construction, the Kresta boasts a horizontal snowboarding carrying feature, or if you're of the dual-planked nature, it also touts an A-frame or diagonal ski carrying design. Though, perhaps most importantly, the Kresta has a J-shaped avalanche gear compartment, complete with dry pocket, so you're not only able to access your safety gear in a flash, but you're also able to separate your sensitive avy gear from wet skins or damp clothing. A back panel entry system enables you quick access to snacks or extra layers, and all of the Kresta's zipper pulls, as well as buckles, are glove and mitten friendly.

    Great Touring Pack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this pack. I'm a 5'6 average build female and the s/m fit great. I love the full zipper in the back, it makes it easy to get to all of my stuff. The waistband pockets are the perfect size for some liner gloves or a quick snack. I'm excited to get some more use out of it this winter/spring!

    A Great Touring Pack for Ladies!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently purchased this pack for touring after being so happy with my Osprey backpacking pack that I purchased last summer. The women's-specific fit is great, and I am still finding more neat features each time I use it. The front compartment has room for my probe and shovel, the waist-strap pockets are huge (love that my glove-liner fit in there when my hands get warm), and the back compartment fits skins, a shell, and my Camelbak bladder with ease! I am very excited to get more use out of this pack!

    the best touring backpack!

      If you're looking for a touring backpack, look no further! This is a solid staple that will last a lifetime. Osprey backpacks are excellent quality and built so well. This is no exception. This is the perfect touring backpack for women, I have ran into no problems with them rubbing me the wrong way or carrying wrong. Can't say enough about it!
