PROS – This was my favorite episode to date. I got to test this pack in the Wasach Mountains of Utah. We hiked up Maybird Canyon to the base of Mt Pffierhorn. This pack performed great. It is very well made for back country day trips in the winter. I had my board strapped on the outside and it carried very good. Cool features include: Camel Back Insulation, Fleece Lined Goggle compartment, Helmet Net, Belt Pockets. The straps that carry your board are reinforced. All the zippers have bungee cord to be easily used with gloves.
When the Osprey Kode ski backpacks were introduced just over a year ago, I must say I was impressed. With a slew of great features and the renowned Osprey fit, the Kode series (Kode 38, Kode 30 and Kode 22) was bound for greatness, right? After a full season of use, the Osprey Kode 30 is an excellent backcountry ski pack with only a few weaknesses.
About the Osprey Kode 30 Backpack
A great all around snowplay pack, the Kode 30 is great for a few hour to all-day side and backcountry tours. Unique features include front panel access to avy gear compartment, backpanel access to dry pocket, stowable helmet carry and a LightWire™ frame to support heavier loads with flex for dynamic movement.
