Just as Sauron crafted one ring to rule them all, CAMP crafted the Speed Raptor 30 to rule all your pack needs. This intelligently laid out pack borrows the best traits from skimo and freeride-oriented ski packs to create an adventure-ready companion, eagerly awaiting your next ski mountaineering mission. While booting often feels like crawling up the fiery slopes of Mount Doom, the X-Press ski carry and easy-to-reach crampon pocket will make short work of transitions, allowing you to get on with the task at hand. The updated ergonomics allow the pack to sit more naturally on your back and distribute the load more evenly, which will help while balancing on the knife-edge ridge traverse. The durable 420 denier nylon fabric is extremely tough and will withstand everything but the fiery depths of Mount Doom. If you’re after a companion as reliable as Samwise Gamgee, then bring along the Speed Raptor 30 on the next adventure.
420D face fabric is quite durable and built to last.
Dedicated avalanche tool pocket allows for easy access while digging snow pits.
X-press carry system can be used whether the pack is fully loaded or nearly empty.
Side entry crampon pocket makes grabbing your crampons or extra layer easy and intuitive.
A-Frame ski carry is useful for extended booting sections where comfort is paramount.
Crampon pocket can be combined with the main compartment for even more storage.
Back panel fully opens for easy access to the pack's contents.
Hydration bladder compatibility allows you to stay hydrated while on the go.
Height adjustable chest strap accommodates many different torso lengths.
Update 2023/24: The Ski Raptor 30 features a different color palette and stretchier helmet holder compared to the 2022/23 version.
Can a 45cm or 50cm ice ax be stored in the dedicated avalanche tool pocket?
I just tried it with a Blue Ice Hummingbird - the 45cm fits, but barely. 50cm will be too long. If fitting an ice axe internally is a priority, the Ortovox Ravine 28 fits a 45cm axe a bit more comfortably in the avy pocket.
Hi, I have a sizing question. I am only 5 foot tall and 100 lbs. Will this pack fit my torso? I don't see much info about sizing to the person. Thanks!!
Hi Valerie, just tried on the Raptor 30 and it fit me quite well at 5'10 and 145lbs, so I think it would be a little big for you. If you can make do with a few less liters, the Raptor 20 has a shorter back panel and might work better. In the 30 liter category, the Dynafit Free 30 Women's might also be worth checking out. It's significantly smaller fitting and has some cool features.
Answer this question:
The raptor 20 lists "A-frame carry" as an option, but not the 30 (?). I need to carry boots on skis for volcano hike-to-snow approaches
Pat, the 30 will also do an A-frame carry with the two side straps and has a nice padded hip belt and back panel for those long hikes!
Couple related questions. Has CAMP advertised any changes between the '21 model year and the '22 version? And do you find the magnets on the crampon door to be very noticeable? I checked one of these out in person and didn't see much evidence of magnets being present or having an impact on the crampon door, but maybe that was a '22 addition and I was holding a '21.
Hi Peter, there aren't any changes to this pack that we are aware of. Good catch! After some inspection, it looks like there are no magnets by the crampon pack.
Is there a straightforward way to carry two tools on this pack? Seems like it is really only designed to carry one ax/tool?
Hi Patrick! One of my favorite features of this pack is the dedicated two tool carry system. There are two bungee straps (they are tucked in on the photo) to manage the shaft and the buckle carry on the bottom is to hold the pick/head. It is a similar system to those found on traditional climbing packs and is very easy and efficient to use. Thanks!
Been crushing with this pack all year. I have a much smaller movement skimo pack that I love, but I use this one for more complicated outings with more gear. Plenty of room in here for (bulky) Verts, rope, crampons, axes and more - all at the same time. I'm going to try to use this for the Haute Route next month as well. Diagonal Robin Hood sling carry works great. Axe holder works great. Crampon/other stuff lower pocket is easily accessible without taking off the pack. I have only made minimal use of the zipper into the main compartment on the part that is usually against your back - but I'm pumped for that for times when I have a ton of stuff in there. Overall - would def recommend.
oh PS - my other fave part is the hip belt! beefy and sturdy. Makes carrying more gear with all the space much more comfortable.
Comment on this review:
The images I’ve seen for the helmet and axe carry have black bungees with tabs. Just got the 30L pack a few days ago and searched low and high but nada. Were these supposed to come with the pack? Otherwise it seems odd CAMP would expect us all to tie p-cord to jig an axe carrier. Please let me know if I’m missing something.
Hi Nick, they should indeed come with little black bungee attachment tabs, looks like these are missing from yours! All the other packs we've got in stock have them. I'll reach out to you and get you some.
Overall, this pack is an upgrade from the previous edition. Skiers prone to wearing helmets are going to be disappointed by the new version, however. This is the one mistake CAMP made with this version. They should have kept the original helmet carrier. I even have a friend he did not buy this pack for this very reason.

Received the Raptor 30 and it looks great but not sure how the helmet attachment works. It there a separate mesh piece that is sold?
Thanks for reaching out, Tom. The helmet holder is comprised of two plastic black tabs located on the back. A picture demonstrating its use can be found in the "questions and reviews" section here.
Is there any difference between this pack and the older black/green version other than the ventilated back panel?
Thanks for reaching out, Ben. There are a few differences (the older pack listing can be found here). The ergonomics have been changed on the newer version as has the way the ice axe is carried. Additionally, the face fabric seems to be more durable on the newer pack.

Any expectations to get this pack back in stock this year? Hoping to snag one!
Hi Taylor, we expect these in the next couple days!
