Arc'teryx Khamski Pack
Ski touring has seen a surge in popularity during recent years, perhaps in part due to equipment technologies that make untracked snow easier to manage. For the true backcountry enthusiast, the new Khamski is a classic patrol-style pack with a twist: revolutionary pack fabric technology and a carry system for skis and splitboards, intended for the modern purist.
A remix of a classic top-loader backcountry skiing/splitboarding pack, the Khamski has an AC2 fabric front with standard high quality nylon pack body. The AC2 technology fabric provides a top and front panel that easily manages all snow conditions without concern for moisture absorption or snow accumulation. In combination with 420D nylon 6,6 plain weave main body textile, the result is a hardwearing premium backcountry pack that will stand up to long-term use.
The back panel on the Khamski is a thin, flexible yet comfortable C2 system that was introduced in the game-changing Nozone packs. Comfortable and lightweight, the M-bar stays transfer the weight to the hip for stable carrying, and can be removed for lighter loads and a greater range of movement. Constructed for efficiency and longevity, the Khamski 38L and 48L packs are a guide's best friend. They can overstuff, carry extra weight, and have instant access to safety tools, first aid kits, and snow equipment.
