Product Description Item No.   10049936

The Osprey Variant 52 Pack is a backpack that knows that sometimes you want to climb and sometimes you want to hike. This bag is into compromising: it's not going to make you choose. Use the hipbelt for support on the trail, stow the hipbelt for keeping it out of the way on the climb. Specifically designed with climbers in mind, this bag features glove-friendly buckles and a three-point system that makes for safe and secure big wall hauling. This bag doesn't give up under any conditions: an extendible spindrift collar keeps the snow out and the weatherproof and water-resistant front pocket keeps moisture away from your gear. This pack carries gear with ease, with specified loops for downhill and cross-country skis, an ice axe holster, and a compression pocket for crampons. Does anyone really like those buttered popcorn jellybeans?

Osprey High Road Chassis

Osprey High Road Chassis
All Osprey wheeled travel packs utilize Osprey’s proprietary High Road™ Chassis featuring an ergonomic retractable handle with integrated vent fins, a 6001 Aluminum frame, ultra-durable and light-weight composite base with a fiberglass matrix inlay and integrated foot/grab handle, over-sized high traction polyurethane wheels with sealed bearings and a high clearance design.

Osprey Peripheral Frame

Osprey Peripheral Frame
Peripheral frame was a departure from the norm many years ago and it’s still the foundation of our gear hauling packs. A wire frame runs along the outside of the backpanel directly connecting the upper load lifters and the central core of the pack to the hipbelt to transition and spread the load. Allowing natural torsional movement, effective adjustable torsos, and different load range and backpanel builds makes this suspension design truly innovative.

OSPREY MEASUREMENT GUIDE

Please note that the info provided above refers to the torso size each pack will fit, and NOT any dimensions of the pack. Below are some steps for how to get your torso length. You should probably have someone help take this measurement for you so it is accurate. And they might accidentally touch your butt.

HOW TO MEASURE TORSO LENGTH:
• Start at the iliac crest, which is the top of the hipbones on the side of your body. These act like a shelf for supporting a pack hipbelt.
• From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down.
• Make sure you keep your back as straight as possible while measuring.
• This torso measurement determines what size Osprey pack you should carry. Refer to the size charts above to find your ideal size.
• If you are in between sizes, it is ideal to try them both on before ordering.

HOW TO MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE:
• Measure around your hips at your iliac crest, NOT your waist.
• A properly fitted hipbelt rides centered over the hipbones and needs to be very snug.
• The padded portion should wrap well around your hips, leaving a gap of 3 to 6 inches between the tips of the both hip pads when securely tightened.
• Refer to the Hipbelts size chart above to help determine your ideal Osprey pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this pack! As an avid rock climber, backpacker, and mountaineer I needed a pack to do all these things and more. This pack is capable of carrying more than you'd ever want to, but it also compresses very well if empty(ish). Plan to use it backpacking? It's not easy to strap much on the outside(sleeping pad) when full. It carries weight extremely well, and the waist straps are thin, but they are reasonably comfortable. This IS a climbing pack and it is geared towards climbing. The water resistant materials were great in the snow, and yet they combated the ultra-rough J-Tree granite. The water-shedding back+shoulder straps worked fantastically(never wet/frozen).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Rad This pack rocks. I actually should have gotten a women's pack, being that I am female. However, I am smaller, 110lbs, and have no hips. This is the only pack that fit me, even though its made for dudes. Thats cool though. It's ultra light weight, and really puts the weight on your hips and not your shoulders. The only complaint is that I would like the pockets on the bottoms sides to fit water bottles. There is no way. You can put an energy bar in there, even though it's hard to reach when hiking, and then clip the water bottles on with a biner...or put them in your pack which sucks...so yeah..that's a problem but otherwise AWESOME!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The pack that we've all been waiting for! Osprey finally made a great technical pack for winter mountaineering, rock climbing and just about anything else you want to do with it. I bought it Specifically for winter climbing trips for a fast and light alpine assaults on the Colorado 14ers. I have personally had no problems attatching anything to the outside of the pack. I carry more than enough stuff to make myself comfortable on 2-3 day winter trips where the mercury is well below freezing. I will say this much, it is a very tough bag! I have caught this pack on more sharp rocks than i can count and have yet to get anything more than an abrasion on the fabric! Great pack for winter tech routes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some people knew what they were doing when they made this pack This thing has really smart design elements that you'll appreciate halfway through a trip or when you change the configuration. Get the 52, it's a versatile size and it can always pack up smaller. The frame is real comfy and puts most of the weight on your hips. It weighs nothing. The one thing I would add are two cinchable loops at the bottom for attaching random gear (like a tent) to the bottom of the bag; however, if you're relatively clever, like I am, you can figure out how to do it with dental floss and a carabiner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really versatile pack I bought this pack for my first mountaineering trip and I was surprised at how well it climbed. Coming from a sport climbing background I expected climbing with a pack to be pretty awkward, but this pack really kept the load balanced and in place. Additionally, it seems like just the right volume to fill up with gear for alpine climbs, but not so huge that you can't cinch down its straps and pack your sport gear out to the crag. Out of all the stuff I've done with it, I've never wished for a different piece of gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Better Option! Ok, so it does have a few extra straps and buckles, but this pack is the bomb! I use it in all condition and at all altitudes. The fabric and construction are rock solid. It can carry a week or a day. Feels like I'm out with a daypack when wearing the 52. Great stability when getting vertical. Oh, and it's BRIGHT RED - awesome! Get it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great climbing pack! Really I couldn't ask for more in a pack. It holds enough enough for most trips and also has the gear loops, etc. needed to fit all your technical gear. This is also the most comfortable pack I've worn on multiday trips either hiking or climbing. All-around best pack I've owned.
