Keep Things Light on the Slopes with Osprey’s Kamber 16 Technical Pack

Just because we’re reaching the end of ski and snowboard season doesn’t mean we should be skimping on gear. The warmer weather demands fewer layers and lighter garments, which means riders and skiers need to ditch the heavy packs and parkas for travel packs and outer shells. Oftentimes, lighter garments bring with them less storage, which can be a problem if you’re planning on tackling backcountry trails or a marathon day on the mountain. With this set of criteria in mind, the folks over at gear juggernaut Osprey made a new technical backpack that’s as versatile as it is easy to carry.

The Kamber 16 technical pack is the ultimate minimal carry solution for skiers, snowboarders, and adventurers alike. Made for “inbound adventures and mellow off-piste excursions,” the Kamber 16 features a durable 420D high tenacity nylon construction to withstand the rigors of the mountain as well as a snowshed back panel to prevent snow from accumulating on your pack. With 16L of storage, an internal organization sleeve, and a scratch-free goggle pocket, the Kamer 16 offers stalwart storage for your essential gear despite its compact size. It even comes with a dedicated avalanche safety kit pocket, complete with a shovel handle and probe sleeves.

Where the Kamber 16 really shines, however, is in its versatility. Osprey nailed the design of its newest technical pack by maximizing every square inch of its construction. Aside from offering impressive storage, Osprey integrated the Kamber 16 with ski and snowboard-dedicated straps on its exterior to enable users to trek off the beaten path on foot if they want. Its harness boasts an EVA foam construction, a zippered insulated hydration hose sleeve, and an adjustable sternum strap with a whistle.

Even if you aren’t planning on skiing or snowboarding for the rest of the season, Osprey’s Kamber 16 is a fantastic technical pack for you to have for the subsequent season. You can purchase the Kamber 16 technical pack on Osprey’s website for $100.
