The Arc'Teryx Khamski 31L Backpack is a day pack for ski tours and split board adventures. Feel free to mix in a little ski alpinism during the season too. The exterior features straps for carrying skis in an A-frame or diagonally, snowboard vertically, an ice axe if necessary and even ski poles. The main section has a side access zipper for quick access to extra layers, plus a hydration pocket for a bladder. The front section is all about organization, for shovel and probe. The Arc'Teryx C2 suspension supports the load against your back and if you're feeling lightweight is the way to go, feel free to remove top pocket and aluminum stays before heading out.

Arc'teryx packs are sized either in 3-length options: Short (S), Regular (R) and Tall (T), or in 2-length options: Short/Regular (SR), and Regular/Tall (RT).
Sizing refers to YOUR OWN BACK LENGTH
Measure your Back:
• Measure along the spine between the 7th cervical vertebra and the level of the hip iliac crest
• Compare this measurement to the Sizing Charts
• It is possible to interchange different size shoulder strap and hipbelt components on many Arc'teryx Packs, but this will not change or affect the back-length of the pack.
