Sizing info

Kestrel 48

Forest, hill or mountain. The Kestrel 48 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 and access the main compartment easily with the single side vertical zippered access point.

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.

Fits like a glove
I bought this pack to travel in Madagascar and was not disapointed at all. It fits like a glove and is so comfortable. We travelled on all manner of vehicle from ox cart to dugout canoe and it stood up to everything. Since then we have been exploring the Pyrenees mountains with a tent and it just seems to get better and better, and lighter and lighter (could be me getting fitter).

Splendido prodotto
Molto funzionale e pratico per diversi tipi di utilizzo, dal trekking al semplice viaggio. Stabile e comodo in fase di trasporto, pratico e veloce in fase di uso. Ogni tasca è facilmente raggiungibile e abbastanza immediata. Ottimo zaino.

Ottimo zaino
Zaino fantastico, utilizzato per il cammino di Santiago e per la Rota Vicentina, performances perfette sia sotto il sole cocente, sia sotto gli acquazzoni tipici di quelle zone. Ottimi gli scomparti e le tasche, unica nota negativa sono le tasche sulla cintura che sono risultate essere troppo piccole e difficilmente accessibili e chiudibili a zaino indossato, oltre la larghezza e lunghezza della cintura lombare, che personalmente avrei preferito leggermente più lunga e larga.
Cmq bravi!
