Product description
Refreshed and revitalized for fall, the Arc'teryx Khamski 48 Backpack is catching the eyes and interest of snow patrollers, touring enthusiasts, and backpack geeks everywhere. It also already won an ISPO award. It is lightweight and stable, waterproof and durable, and offers more options than many new cars. Whether you patrol in Little Cottonwood Canyon (UT), explore Montana backcountry, or spend the weekends hiking, you'll be glad the Khamski 48 shoulders the load comfortably and gracefully.
The body consists of two different fabrics to provide a lightweight, waterproof, and durable shield for your gear. The front consists of 420D ACT nylon fabric treated on both sides with urethane, creating an impermeable barrier for air and water, while the remainder of the pack is constructed from durable 420D plain weave nylon. Removable aluminum M-bar stays offer versatile, lightweight stability; keep the stays in when you're schlepping a heavy load up the mountain and need support, or take them out when you're off on a day hike and your lunch doesn't weight 40 pounds.
Despite being a generous (and expandable) 48 liters, the Khamski pack could be a puppy given how close it stays to your body due to AC2 construction. Advanced Composite Construction takes high-density polyethylene foam and a quick-dry back panel, and fuses it to the durable front fabric. The end result is a lightweight, stable, and sleek pack. Spacermesh and Hypercell foam shoulder straps are the icing on the backpack cake, providing moisture management and a custom fit.
If the Khamski were a cupcake, there would be sprinkles galore. Carry your skis diagonally or in the traditional A-frame formation. Organize away with the numerous and varied pocket options: secret pocket inside bottom of pack, snow science pocket along the side, front kangaroo/shovel pocket, removable lid storage with zippered compartment, plus the entire main compartment.

Question from Lucie | Maastricht
Wie sollicitant den richtige Rückenlänge messen?

Kann ich das selber machen oder brauche ich dazu unbedingt Hilfe?
Ich bin eine Frau, 168 cm lang, normal gebaut. Bin unsicher ob short oder regular besser passen würde...

Hi Lucie,

die Rückenlänge bemisst sich vom Nacken bis zum Beckenknochen. Jeder Mensch hat im Nacken einen deutlich spürbaren Wirbel (müsste der 7. Nackenwirbel sein), von dem an wird gemessen. Das geht auch alleine, mit einer zweiten Person ist es jedoch einfacher.
Ich hoffe das hilft Dir weiter.

Mach's gut,
