Kresta 40 - Women's (Spring 2021)
Featuring quick and easy access to critical snow safety gear and more than enough room for the gear you need on technical ascents and multi-day hut trips, the Kresta 40 is ideal for both snowboarders and skiers. Safety matters most in the backcountry, so the Kresta features a large J-zip access panel on the front of the pack with multiple, glove-friendly zipper pulls so you can get to your probe and shovel in seconds. On long ascents deploy the stowable helmet carry when appropriate to stay cool, and if you get thirsty there’s an internal hydration sleeve and an insulated harness sleeve to keep your bite valve handy and ice-free. The Kresta 40 accommodates nearly every ski and snowboard carry option, with smartly reinforced contact points to protect from sharp edges. Other winter specific features like a scratch-free fleece-lined goggle pocket round out one of the most capable, durable, and functional technical backcountry snow packs Osprey has ever made. Even when loaded with up to 40lbs the LightWire suspension, padded hipbelt and contoured shoulder straps provide a comfortable carry. When you set your pack down to transition or for a snack, zippered backpanel access keeps the snow out of your gear and provides easy access to gear no matter where you stuffed it in this dual-access top loading machine.
