The Osprey Kamber 32 was designed for ski trips that go a little further than the resort. With a hydration sleeve complete with an insulated tube, pockets and hooks for almost everything, and that incredible Osprey quality, you may never need another winter pack again. Despite being a little heavy and some of the buckles impeding the zippers, this feature rich ski pack is ready to elevate your ski touring experience.
