Cortez, CO – October 22, 2019Osprey, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions is pleased to announce that the men’s Kamber 42 and women’s Kresta 40, designed for backcountry ski/snowboard mountaineering and hut trips, received BACKPACKER Magazine Editors’ Choice Gold Award. The Editors’ Choice Gold Award is bestowed on products that have sustained years of best-in-class performance.

In the November/December 2019 issue, BACKPACKER editors call Osprey’s Kamber 42/Kresta 40 the “only ski pack we ever want to use” because it’s “proven time and again that its feature set is the most dialed one on the mountain.”

“As a brand, delivering timeless performance is not just our intention, it’s also our guarantee,” said Rob BonDurant, VP of Product, Design and Marketing at Osprey. “We are so honored to receive BACKPACKER Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Gold award. Rather than a celebration of a single product launch or moment in time, the Editors’ Choice Gold Award acknowledges Kamber’s ongoing performance over time.”

The BACKPACKER Editors’ Choice Awards are a seal of approval that can help put an outdoor company or product on the proverbial map. Each year at the Outdoor Retailer show, retail buyers use the awards announcements as a must-buy shopping list, knowing that their customers will be asking for these products.

In addition to Osprey’s Kamber 42/Kresta 40, this year’s Editors’ Choice Gold Award winners include: Exped DownMat, DPS Alchemist Wailer 100 RP/ Alchemist Yvette 100 RP, and Mountain Hardwear Trango 2.
