Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size for day hikes I got this for my wife, and she loves it. She looked at the Mountainsmith that I have but thought it was too much pack for what she wants. The Osprey holds an extra layer plus a rain jacket plus a few nibbles, plus two water bottles. And it's comfortable. Perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best fanny pack ever! I have hiked with this fanny pack several times and love the way it fits. The hydration bottles do not stick out so far that they interfere with my arms. The pack is large enough for storing the essentials (food, first aid, rain jacket). Total water capacity is OK, but need more for longer hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well engineered pack is worth the money. I needed to switch from a shoulder hydration system to a waist pack after surgery and was sure it would be less comfortable. I was wrong. The frame of this pack keeps sufficient air flow so that my back is not wringing wet, and it is well balanced and hardly noticible at full stride. The bottles are easy to reach without removing or twisting the pack. The generous zippered compartments allow me to carry whatever I want, including an extra water bottle on a really hot day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice pack but... I like the construction. The pack is good for short hikes. I probably won't use it much as I have a small body frame and I cannot adjust this pack enough to prevent my arms from brushing against the water bottles. Very annoying to bare arms. Might be ok in autumn when wearing layers.

What is the difference between this one and the Osprey Men's Talon 6? I am a woman, but prefer the black color of the men's version and am wondering why it is for men and not unisex. 

Asked by: Desert_mama
​The main difference between the two is that the Women's Tempest 6 is more contoured to fit a woman's hips for a more comfortable fit.

I noticed there was an inside zipper right next to and at the top the lumber support (but on the inside), it is really to narrow a space to put anything in; and the zipper seems to be on the inside of the space What is that for?

Asked by: Sjokatt
This zipper is used to access the back panel if it ever needs to be repaired or replaced. It is not intended to be used as a pocket.

I have the same question about the difference between the men's and the women's versions. I bought the men's in the store, but I'm now just curious.

Asked by: Lambchop
The difference between the men’s and women’s is that the Women's Tempest 6 is contoured to fit a woman's hips for a more comfortable fit.
