For extreme winter assaults, fresh lines, and good times in the cold.

The three-point haul system of the Osprey Variant 52 Backpack makes lugging your stuff up a wall, mountain, or glacier quick and easy. The big volume and convenient pocketry of this winter pack make your gear easy to access, and the removable hip-belt and frame sheet shed weight when you need to go light. Stash your crampons, ice tools, or probe in their own dedicated locales for quick gettin' and puttin' away. A water-resistant zippered front pocket keeps maps dry, and dual ski loops carry your sticks with ease.
