I am looking at both the Men's Kamber and the Women's Kresta packs in the small/medium size. They seem nearly identical, with the exception of the listed weight. Is it correct that the Men's Kamber is 4 lb 2 oz, and the Women's Kestra is 1 lb 13 oz?

Asked by: Jennifer
Thank you for calling this to our attention. Both the men's and women's versions of the pack are 4 lbs. We will have our website updated shortly.

Can this pack be used for overnight winter camping in the backcountry.

Asked by: Toneloke
At only 42 liters, this pack is very small for an overnight if you are carrying a sleeping bag, tent, stove and cooking pieces. It’s especially small if you’re in freezing temperatures and your gear is bulky (which will take up more space in your pack).
