Kestrel 38

The Kestrel 38 has been developed to cope with any-trail, any-season. In wet weather and heavy downpours the built in rain cover provides protection. During hotter conditions the adjustable AirScape™ backpanel keeps you well ventilated whilst offering the load support you require. The spacer mesh harness and hipbelt ensure a supportive and comfortable load carrying solution. Whilst the adjustable torso length means the backpack can be altered to fit you perfectly. For overnight trips attach larger items such as a sleeping pad on the lower external straps and put your sleeping bag in the base compartment with internal zip divider. Keep the rest of your gear neatly organised with the hipbelt and lid zipped pockets. Need your hands free for a short scramble? Our unique Stow-on-the-Go™ system means no more 'on and off' to store your trekking poles, just simply pass the poles through the two elasticated loops for an easy hands-free solution. The single ice axe loop may prove useful in winter conditions and wet jackets can be stowed away from the rest of your gear via the front stretch pocket. The dual side compression straps keep your load tight and under control. Our Kestrel pack is also compatible with both Hydraulics™ and Hydraulics™ LT Reservoirs so you can keep hydrated when hiking the trails. Once you're all packed then pull in the reverse StraightJacket™ compression straps to tightly secure your gear and get ready to go.

Just experience the most amazing service
Ordered & received this product. Good quality and size. Problem with the length of chest strap. Contacted Osprey and this was dealt with quickly by a lady called Harriet. Making an extension for me. Great service. Thankyou

The Perfect Day and Overnighting Pack
I bought a Kestrel 38 when it first hit the market. As a wilderness guide, my remote wilderness guiding pack is the Xena 85, but when I'm on shorter treks, going solo, or within reach of civilisation, the Kestrel is the perfect pack. It has been to every continent, over all types of terrain, and in all weather. It's tough. It has been doused in diesel, it has survived being submerged in rapids and waterfalls, has gone ice climbing and alpine trekking, and has been lovingly dragged through deserts. This pack has survived years of use and abuse by both myself and every person I have loaned it to. And no matter whose back it is on - male or female, it comes back with compliments. I can fit enough gear in it to overnight, plenty of layers, and my extensive guide's first aid kit. No matter how full I pack it, or how heavy the load is, it always sits comfortably on my back - a really pleasant surprise as I have always used packs with more padded hip belts. If you buy only one day/overnighting pack for your walking trips (or waterfall accidents), this is the one to get. If only I could stop lusting after the Kyte, though....

Fantastico
Ho comprato il kestrel 38 per le escursioni e i campi che affronterò con l'università, mi serviva uno zaino comodo, bello, ma soprattutto resistente e che potesse facilmente trasportare il martello da geologo che mi devo portare dietro. Si è rivelato il miglior acquisto che abbia mai fatto, amo questo zaino! I materiali sono incredibilmente robusti e leggeri, gli scompartimenti interni sono eccezionali, la tasca inferiore e la zip laterale ti fanno quasi dimenticare dell'apertura superiore e ti permettono di raggiungere ogni angolo dello zaino, è perfetto.
