Developed in the challenging San Juan Mountains of Colorado with input from guides and ski patrollers from there and all over the world, the sleek Osprey Kresta 20 Women’s ski/snow pack has the fit and features necessary for elevated cold-weather performance.
Committed to providing all outdoor enthusiasts with optimal performance, Osprey equips its women's packs with gender-specific design features. Harnesses are cut wider through the collarbone area and have an ergonomic taper in the chest area. Offering a women's specific cant and a narrower cut, the hipbelts found on Osprey's women's packs also cater to female users.
Structural support is provided by a LightWire peripheral aluminum frame 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. To further ensure a proper fit, the Kresta 20 Women’s pack is available in two separate size offerings. The 1098 cubic inch capacity Xsmall/Small pack comfortably fits torso sizes ranging from 13" to 17" while the Small/Medium (1220 cubic inches) has a torso fit range of 16" to 20".
The main packbag has panel-loading access. There is also a large, zippered front compartment and a smaller, zippered front storage pocket. Large zippered pockets on the hipbelt keep essentials close at hand. A dedicated pocket has sleeves for probes and shovels.
Other features include an integrated diagonal ski carry system, a stowable helmet carry system (helmet not included), tuckaway ice tool attachment points, and a scratch-free goggle pocket. Attachment points on the harness are ideal for lashing a GPS or radio. A lined internal sleeve is ideal for carrying a hydration system (sold separately) and an insulated sleeve on the harness helps to keep drinking tubes from freezing up in cold temperatures.
