Tempest 9

Building on 10 years of iconic design, the next generation of the iconic Tempest series is here. Tempest 9 features clean, modern design and stunning performance no matter what your adventure. When it comes to the perfect lightweight daypack the Tempest 9 won't disappoint.

The cleverly designed new AirScape™ accordion foam backpanel combined with a seamless lumbar-to-hipbelt body wrap increases air flow and provides an even more comfortable carrying experience, by keeping the load close to the body and spreading the weight evenly around the hips. The Tempest's backsystem also offers an impressive women's specific fit, with an ergonomically shaped hipbelt, harness, yoke and backpanel.

Tempest 9 is complete with innovative solutions such as Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachment, LidLock™ bike helmet attachment, single ice-axe attachment and InsideOut™ compression straps. The zipped pockets on each side of the hipbelt allow quick and easy access to smaller items such as phone, snacks and GPS. On the top of the pack you will find another conveniently placed pocket, ideal for small items that you need easy access to. On the front of the pack is an elasticated bungee, perfect for easy storage of a jacket or extra layer of clothing. Keeping hydrated during activity is essential and re-filling your hydration reservoir has been made easy with the quick access external hydration sleeve with reservoir hanging loop.

Tempest 9 is compatible with 1.5L Hydraulics™ LT and 2L Hydraulics™ reservoirs and the size Extra-Small High Vis Raincover.

Tempest 9 is built to be lightweight, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. No matter the adventure, Tempest has your back.

This bagpack is great for my one day treks. Despite it declares only 9 litters. All the things I need fitts in . This includes 2.5l water bladder, two extra layers and a lunch. Also it is just as confortable as my big Osprey Kyte. I just love you osprey

This is a nice bag but I am very disappointed that it's too long. I am only 5 3 tall but I have a fairly long back - but this is still too long, whatever I do with the straps. It sits on my waist just that bit uncomfortably - a real shame since it is otherwise a good sack.

I bought this bag for skiing so was looking for something comfortable and small just to carry some lunch and an extra layer in. I was disappointed to realise I couldn't purchase the XS/S size in Europe (this is available in the US). However I decided to give the S/M size available here a go instead. Unfortunately I find the back part of the bag is quite long and digs in as I walk. No matter how much I adjust the straps it still feels too long and uncomfortable. Also I find for a supposedly light weight bag it’s a little on the heavy side and bulky. If you’re on the petite size or just looking for something quite light weight I wouldn’t recommend this bag.

Hi Anna,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Tempest 9.

We are sorry to hear you did not get on well with the size. As a structured and high-performance hiking pack, the Tempest series is very lightweight compared to its direct competition. Though if you're looking for something lighter and less structured, you could try the Ultralight Stuff Pack.

As you already know, we do not stock the XS sizes in any of our women’s fit packs in Europe. We simply do not have enough of a demand to stock them and from previous experience, our WS/WM size sells much better.

I apologise for any disappointment caused and I will pass on your request to stock this in the future.

Kind Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

It is extremely lightweight, its carefully made attention to detail design allows pockets for all your gear; outside hydration, which has great access for strapping your bike helmet also. Pockets for nutrition, keys, phone, hip strapping to allow for a secure fit whether that be mountain walking, to cycling, or trail running. I have a high sweat rate, so this bag is great to pack in a load of spare kit, so I can swap over clothes and stay warm through the winter months in Scotland!

This is so comfortable to wear, the straps make such a difference being a women in the way they are shaped for a bust I will never go back to using my old ruck sacks now.

I love the little pockets on the side of the waist, means you can put little things in i.e. tissues or phone and you can retrieve without taking off bag.

I also liked the fact I can put purse, keys in internal pocket so do not have to empty bag when having to retrieve.

The fact I can use a water bladder is also another feature I looked for rather than an area for a water bottle.

The rigid back plate helps keep the bag away from body which helps with airflow.

This pack is perfect for me. I'm quite short at 5ft 2in and this bag fits me wonderfully. It has all the features I was looking for and for the size of it, it is actually quite spacious inside. It is also extremely light weight which is great for me when I'm running with a few bits and bobs. I chose this bag primarily because it was designed for women, and it is was definitely worth it.

superleichter Rucksack für kleinere Touren, ausreichend Platz für Jause, Trinkflasche und Jacke, praktische Fächer.

I bought this for running because of the women specific fit and ideal size - you can pack your day clothes and even smaller shoes for the office if you need to, but the rucksack does not move on you when running. Very happy with the purchase!
