Built for ski mountaineers and ice climbers, Osprey’s Variant 37 is ideal for mountain travelers who need a durable pack to transport skis and ice tools with security and comfort.
The removable hipbelt has built-in gear loops and is contoured to facilitate movement and fit easily around a climbing harness. You can also remove the pack’s top lid and deploy the integrated FlapJacket™ closure system when it’s time to move light and fast.
Other mountain-specific features include redesigned ice tool attachments to keep your tools secure yet allow one-handed access via bungee tie offs and side release buckles. Dual side wand/ice pro pockets keep critical gear close for an extra margin of safety. A-frame ski carry loops transport skis in the classic fashion. Three bombproof attachment points give you peace of mind when hauling. All zipper-pulls and buckles are designed to be glove friendly. A rear shove-it pocket gives you a place to shove an extra layer whether you’re climbing the skin track in search of powder or hiking to the base of an unclimbed ice route.
