New from Osprey, the Kestrel 38 pack for backcountry adventures is designed to be your quiver-of-one for a light overnighter or long day outings!

  • Top-loading design with a fixed lid pocket allows ample gear storage
  • Osprey AirScape lightweight backpanel features ridge-molded foam with channels covered in mesh to allow airflow
  • EVA foam torso and adjustable harness with a mesh-covered die-cut EVA hipbelt save weight and enhance breathability
  • Fits a variety of backs thanks to hook-and-loop, torso-length adjustability: just rip it, adjust it and stick it
  • Internal spring steel frame provides a flexible and light structure
  • Innovative Stow-On-The-Go™ trekking pole attachment allows you to stow and remove poles while still wearing pack
  • Poles tuck away between your arm and pack; adjustable shockcord on left hand shoulder strap and another loop on side of pack hold poles in tightly
  • Front and side stretch-woven pockets are ideal for stashing jacket, helmet, book or other often-used gear
  • Hipbelt features two zippered pockets for stashing a digital camera and snacks
  • Hydration-compatible design features reservoir pocket and drink tube exit port for on-the-go hydration (reservoir sold separately)
  • Integrated raincover pulls out in a flash, protecting pack contents from sudden downpours
  • Daisy chains and dual ice axe lops, with bungee tool tie-offs, let you lash extra gear outside
  • Side compression straps let you cinch down loads for jostle-free carrying
  • Externally accessible lower compartment accommodates a sleeping bag
