The verdict? Since selling my Denali Pro, the Osprey Kode 22 + ABS is likely the only ‘heavy’ pack I will own. The pack does its job, and it does it well.

The Osprey Kode ABS Compatible 22 +10 pack is the ultimate backcountry skiers bag with the added bonus of easy ABS on-and-off. While it’s not perfect, the overall design and function makes me ready to replace my BCA Float 32.

I think Osprey has taken a great product and made it even better with the addition of the optional ABS Vario base unit feature.

Professionals, Guides and Patrol will really like the organization that this pack provides. I would recommend this pack to anyone looking for a slightly larger backcountry ski / snowboard touring pack. The layout really works to keep things organized and most importantly when I have it on my back it feels great.
