Backpack Osprey Sopris 40


sprey ski (or snowboard) bag adapted to the female morphology so that we forget it when we are active in the snow. The Sopris 40 bag is light, adjustable and stable, so that it can be used for both downhill skiing and ski touring.

As soon as we have the bag in hand, we check the list of storage: net and hooks to fix the ski helmet? OK. Entry to the main compartment by the back? OK. Diagonal and on the side ski port? OK. Avalanche safety kit pocket? OK. Internal and external compression straps for maximum adjustment of the bag? OK. Removable top pocket/cap? OK. Internal hydration sleeve? OK. Internal bottle pocket and keychain clip inside the bag? OK! Let’s go to the field, a few sunny days in the Aravis.

We appreciate the materials of the Sopris bag, in the gray “Tungsten” color. The water-repellent coating (long-lasting and PFC-free) evacuates moisture and snow that may be received during falls. For those who like to go out at night, the reflective strips are present.

We also appreciate being able to adjust the bag to our morphology thanks to the straps and the padded belt. Comfort and mobility are present to be quiet and dynamic in the descents. You can easily (even with gloves!) put away your jacket, take out your helmet, put your skins, look for your down jacket… the bag is very well thought out! And the avalanche safety kit is methodically stored on the front of the bag.


This Osprey is a very good choice for ski touring over two or three days. Nothing is missing in the bag’s accessories, and the carrying comfort is great.
