Designed for backcountry skiers and boarders, the Osprey women's specific Kresta 20L is the perfect size for spring backcountry tours or lift-accessed tours off the ski area. Thermo-formed backpanel and contoured shoulder straps provide comfort and keep the pack stable when you're ripping the steep and deep. A zippered panel allows easy access to all your gear while another large J-zip front panel pocket stores your avalanche probe and alpine shovel for quick access when you want to dig a snow pit and assess conditions. There's also a built-in back pocket for a hydration reservoir that routes through the shoulder harness to prevent freezing. On the outside of the pack, you'll find straps for multiple ski and snowboard carry options. All contact points are reinforced to minimize wear from metal edges. Other winter-specific features include a stowable helmet carry system and a scratch-free goggle pocket. Glove friendly buckles and zippers pulls let you keep your hands covered when you're making the transition from skins to skis on a frigid January morning.
