A technical backcountry ski pack, the Osprey Soelden 32 ski/snow pack has a stable fit, durable and lightweight construction, and the features necessary for elevated cold-weather performance.
Structural support is provided by a LightWire peripheral aluminum frame, a 1.5mm HDPE stay, and an HDPE framesheet. A smooth-surface Thermoformed contoured backpanel sheds snow and keeps ice from building up. Contoured, padded shoulder straps and a padded hipbelt enhance fit and aid in load balance. Load-lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap allow you to make fine-tuned fit adjustments. The buckle of the sternum strap also doubles as a safety whistle.
Unlike traditional backpacks, access to the main packbag is achieved through a zippered entry on the backpanel. This design helps to keep contents dry and protected and also enables you to place the pack face down when accessing contents so that the backpanel remains completely dry. Additionally, there is a large front compartment with a J-shaped zipper. This allows for easy access to an avalanche safety kit pocket with sleeves for a shovel handle and probes. The hipbelt has a gear loop and one zippered pocket to keep essentials close at hand.
Other features include integrated A-frame and diagonal ski carry systems, vertical and horizontal snowboard carry systems, a stowable helmet carry system (helmet not included), an ice tool carry sleeve and attachment point, sled attachment loops and a scratch-free goggle pocket. Attachment points on the harness are ideal for lashing a GPS or radio. The internal main compartment has side panel sleeves for a thermos or other small items.
The Osprey Soelden 32 ski/snow pack is available in your choice of color options.
