    Hi,

    I just purchased my first splitboard and all of the necessary gear. That last remaining piece is a backpack to use while I’m touring in the backcountry. I plan to do single day tours, so I’m assuming something in the 30L range will do the trick.

    Right now I’m leaning towards the Osprey Kamber 32L (water resistant, $170USD) or the Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30L (waterproof, $130USD).

    Can anyone recommend a good backpack for my splitboarding adventures or confirm that the Osprey Kamber 32L would be a good fit for me?

    FYI here’s my new setup:
    Salomon Dirksen Board + Skins
    Spark R&D Arc Bindings
    Spark R&D Pucks
    BCA Tracker2 Avalanche Beacon

    Thanks!

    I love Deuter, they carry well for my jacked up back. I’ve got 4 of their packs, but the Freerider Pro 30 would definitely work for what your targeting. It’ll carry solid or A-frame. MH Scrambler looks a little lean in the suspension department. Maybe you’re a ‘light is right’ type guy, but I want something that I know can handle some weight if needed.

    Congrats on the new kit of gear!

    Peep the BCA Stash 30, this years pack has some impressive improvements. Full access back panel…. Where have you been my whole life;)

    I’ve had a Mammut Nirvana Pro for four seasons now and I’m happy with it. Came recommended by ski patrol here. Comfortable, lots of features. Unfortunately it seems like it’s expensive in the US. I managed to pick one up while in Europe for about $140.
