It’s not practical to bring two backpacks on a trip. When you’re planning a winter adventure that includes carrying your gear from home to your destination, plus getting out into the backcountry, not many packs are rugged enough to do it all. The Osprey Kode 32 pack is the Goldilocks of three backpack sizes that mix simple carry features with winter outdoor needs. The zippered back-panel access (on Kode 22, 32 and 42) to the dry storage and hydration compartment allows you to get to your gear while keeping the anatomically shaped back panel, shoulder straps and hip belt off the ground. Zippered hip belt pockets are easy to access with one hand, and an extra-large zipper makes it easy to access the front pocket quickly. Add wide loops and glove-friendly buckles, and backcountry fans can carry their big gear along.
