Deal of the Week: Osprey Kamber 42/Kresta 40

Get a jump on rounding out next winter's kit with this near-perfect pack.

Yes, snow season is winding down (or, if you’re on the East Coast, probably done already). But that doesn’t mean you can’t score a deal on some sweet gear for next winter. The Kamber (men’s style) and Kresta (women’s) are two of our favorite ski touring and general winter exploring packs, with a heritage stretching back over a decade. They’re chock-full of smart design details that make storing and accessing all your gear—from avalanche safety equipment to goggles to snacks to lashed-on skis or a snowboard—simple and glove-friendly. Beefy buckles and straps make sure these packs will last for years, and they each boast serious weight-carrying chops if you want to turn that hut overnight into a feast to remember. We gave the Kamber and Kresta an Editors’ Choice Gold Award in 2019, and now you can score them for 40 percent off ($114.50) on the Osprey website. Get the Kamber here and the Kresta here.
