Light and fast barely begins to describe the challenges of randonee ski racing. Imagine running through the high mountains on featherweight skis and boots. The sport requires a combination of mountaineering skills, athletic prowess, and specialized gear. The Osprey Kamber Race 18 is an essential part of the gear. Each racer brings their fitness level and mountain savvy to the starting line. Osprey brings a pack carefully designed to shave time, especially in the transitions between up and downhill mode. Everything about this pack is designed for speed, starting with a super-light suspension system consisting of a die cut foam/spacer mesh backpanel, a 15-millimeter webbing hipbelt, and a removable and adjustable sternum strap. The BioStretch™ body wrap shoulder harness system has two front stretch mesh pockets for energy bars, GU packets, and other race-ready snacks. The diagonal ski carry system allows you to access and store skis without removing the pack. One side stretch pocket is designed for quick storage and access to skins. The other side pocket holds crampons equally close at hand. A Single ToolLock™ ice tool attachment with gives you instant hands-on/hands-off access to your ax should conditions dictate a pick is necessary.
