Looking to replace an aging backpack for this winter’s back country adventure? Check those two new offering from Osprey: the new Reverb and the re-engineered Kode.
Starting with the new entry, the Reverb is a funky and versatile option in Osprey’s collection. With diagonal ski carry or vertical snowboard carry, it isn’t just useful at keeping the small stuf f in one place. It does that too of course with microfleece lined pocket for the goggles, another zipped pocket on the front and rear-accessible main compartment. A nice detail is the insulated shoulder harness sleeve, to keep the exposed parts of your hydration system from freezing. The Osprey Reverb is available in 10L or 18L capacities for £65 and £70 respectively, in Pink Fury, Berg Blue and Black.
Next up is the Kode. Not a new product but the Kode has been revamped for winter 2013 with a new carry system for boards and skis and now comes in three new sizes: 22L, 32L and 42L. While the first two are fairly identical in terms of features, with rear-access main compartment and tough nylon 420D construction, the 42L is more oriented at ski mountaineering/touring. It comes with an integrated Helmet pocket, up to size XL, a under lid rope carry system and top load access. All the Kode packs also have the insulated hydration tube sleeve and the goggle pocket.
From the smallest to the biggest, the Kodes sell for £90, £100 and £120 and are available in Nitro Green, Hoodoo Red and Black.
