From Boots to Duct Tape: Everything You Need for Backcountry Skiing
Osprey Kode 32 Pack
An airbag pack is useful in high-consequence terrain, but the system adds extra weight. For regular tours in low-angle areas, the Osprey Kode 32 is a solid option: It’s big enough for everything you need—food, extra layers, and safety tools. It carries well and has a clever diagonal ski carry, which we prefer because it’s quicker to attach than an A-frame carry.
