Developed in the challenging San Juan Mountains of Colorado with input from guides and ski patrollers from there and all over the world, the Osprey Kresta 30 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 30 Women’s pack is available in two separate size offerings. The 1709 cubic inch capacity Xsmall/Small pack comfortably fits torso sizes ranging from 13" to 17" while the Small/Medium (1831 cubic inches) has a torso fit range of 16" to 20".
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 zippered front compartment and a smaller, zippered top pocket. There are large zippered pockets on the hipbelt to keep essentials close at hand. A dedicated pocket has sleeves for probes and shovels.
Other features include integrated A-frame and diagonal ski carry systems, 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.
