Product description Osprey Kestrel 48LWith several international awards to its outstanding utility and performance during hiking and outdoor activities, the Osprey Kestrel 48L rucksack remains one of the most popular, capable options on the marketplace.
Thanks to its AirScape™ backpanel, the Kestrel is a highly breathable and comfortable backpack that allows great airflow through your back in combination with its LightWire™ suspension harness. These highly wear-resistant shoulder pads – with a sternum strap and webbing hipbelt to match - also have external access for a hydration reservoir in case you wish to include it, and are fully adjustable for a variety of heights and constitutions.
But it is on its inside where the Kestrel proves to be a true workhorse. A double set of internal compression straps, located at this rucksack’s top and bottom areas, keeps your belongings in place at all times: a very useful feature in a bag that includes, in addition to a variety of organization pockets, a separate sleeping bag compartment with floating divider and a waterproof, removable raincover.
This utility is also kept on its exterior, where the Kestrel has several trekking pole attachments, easy-access pockets for mountaineering tools and additional fastening straps so you don´t lack any equipment on your next expedition.
Off the grid. With a proven legacy, the Kestrel 48 is a rugged, high performance backpack, designed to be a true outdoor workhorse.
