Building on 10 years of iconic design, the next generation of the iconic Tempest series is here. Tempest 20 features clean, modern design and stunning performance no matter what your adventure. When it comes to a perfect all-rounder the Tempest 20 won't disappoint, after all it's designed to cling to your back like a frightened monkey.

The cleverly designed 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 20 features an adjustable back length, ensuring the pack fits well to your body and enabling the most comfortable carrying experience. The pack 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 a large PowerMesh™ pocket, which is ideal for a wet 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 20 is compatible with all Hydraulics™ reservoirs and the size Extra-Small High Vis Raincover.

Tempest 20 is built to be lightweight, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. No matter the adventure, Tempest has your back.

    Please stock the XS/S Size
    Why is this backpack not available in the XS/S size in Europe? The regular "one size" is a little too big even on the shortest adjustment.

    Happy customer
    This is my second Tempest Rucksack and I had no hesitation in deciding to replace with the same again. I had been quite happy with my first one, probably used for about 5 yrs, but it had been well used and I had unknowingly caught the mesh front panel possibly on a low branch and it had a tear. I repaired it myself twice by using an iron-on tape. However the colour (green) had faded a lot and as it was my birthday recently, I decided to replace it with a nice new one. There have been a few noticeable tweaks and improvements. I like the hip belt pockets now in a matching nylon fabric rather than the previous light grey mesh and similarly instead of the light grey base, this is now blue nylon. The light grey got dirty and didn't clean up well. The front mesh pocket is smaller although I don't think this will be a problem. I'm 5'2" and I find the size of the '20' just right for my small frame and the Airscape back ventilation works well. I look forward to using my new Tempest for many more years to come.

    Dissapointed
    My old Mountain Warehouse rucksack was nearing the end of its life. I thought that this rucksack would be an improvement on the one I was using. I have to say I am very disappointed with the Osprey rucksack. There is only one main compartment, so everything is in together. There is a small second pocket at the top, but I can only fit in small items. The airflow on the back of the rucksack might as well not be there. In warm weather my back is wet from top to bottom. In my opinion it doesn’t work.
    Also I would expect that for the price I paid that there would have been an integrated rain cover, no I had to buy one. There are small pockets on the waist support, but because of the placement of the straps it’s not possible to use them fully as the zip is restricted with the shoulder straps. The shoulder straps have a small pocket. I can’t imagine what use it is as I don’t have anything with me that would fit into it. The only positive thing is the side pouches are large and things stay in place.
    Needless to say I am not happy with my Purchase.

    Hip straps not long enough
    Just seen others review this product who have had the same problem I did. I'm a UK 14. I bought the rucksack in summer, a couple of years ago, and come winter I realised the hip straps wouldn't do up over a coat and fleece. I wrote to Osprey as soon as I spotted this problem but had no reply. Having got the rucksack out again to use I thought I'd try again and have just filled in the form I was sent by customer services (who did reply this time). Fingers crossed they send an extension kit or new straps. Surely they can cater for ladies size 14 and over?? The length of straps felt stingy, for an expensive, premium product. Other than that I think it;s a great rucksack - lightweight and comfortable, with all the pockets in the right places.

    Best one-day backpack ever!
    I’m wearing backpacks since childhood and it’s been a constant problem to find the one that fits my athletic body with big breasts (quite a challenge!). I first tried Tempest 9 for skiing and I loved it. So I decided to get a full one-day backpack version and tested it in backcountry hiking in Utah. Together with my husband having Talon 22 we managed to pack all the gear necessary for overnight camping for 2 people, including the tent, sleeping pads and bags, cooking gear and warm clothes. So we used these backpacks to the maximum. And I have to admit that it absolutely served its purpose as the most comfortable backpack ever. Even my usual back pain was dormant despite intensive hiking with quite heavy backpack. The only downgrade I found is that the upper pocket did not survived carrying a regular pen in it (no sharp endings) - there are two respective holes appeared on both sides where the pen was. So the material was not designed for things like that. That’s a little bit disappointing because people tend to have small items like pen in these pockets. I had also a lens cleaner there and it is in the form of a thick pen. So probably I should place such items in a separate, more durable bag, which will add additional weight and take some space. Otherwise, it is the best backpack I have ever had for almost 40 years. And I plan to go for a bigger version for 3-4 days hike.

    Good bag - bad company
    Spending £90 on a rucksack was made more justifiable as Osprey was advertising a free reservoir with every backpack purchase. When the backpack arrived by the hydration bladder didn't I asked customer service if it was being posted seperatly just to be told that the offer had been taken down from their website the day before and therefore I wouldn't receive one. I hadn't been on the Osprey website until the time I bought the bag and although I explained that the offer was definitely not taken down when they said it was and I was lied to time and time again. For a company that sells expensive products to be conned by a fake offer is pretty awful service. I will definitely not be recommending Osprey to anyone.

    Perfect !
    Suite aux avis mon choix c'est porté sur ce modèle, et après un premier test c'est parfait. Il est très léger, s'adapte très bien à ma morphologie (1m58), tout est très bien pensé ! Et l'espace pour le réservoir c'est un très grand plus. Je suis entièrement satisfaite de mon achat. Il va m'accompagner sur tous les chemins !

    Ouch!
    What I really like about this rucksack is the way the waist belt is tightened, pulling straps towards you as opposed to against, well done Osprey. It is lightweight material and has the right number of useful pockets and places to stuff gear. It has a decent amount of aerated padding on the back, without being over bulky. Conversely, all of this is wasted as it is beyond doubt the most uncomfortable rucksack I have ever owned. All due to the very narrow back meaning the base of the frame just digs in to my back. It reports to be female specific, however I can only guess it was only tested on an exceptionally slender female. So, if you are a UK size 8-10, this rucksack will be a dream. Anything else then skip it and buy the blokes model. Of course, the most painful part is a lot of money wasted on a rucksack I can’t make use of.

    best backpack for day hikes
    This backpack is great. The 20l size is absolutely perfect for day hikes. It easily fits a rain jacket, water, food and whatever else you may need. I recently discovered it also has a designated space for a hydration pack. I took the Tempest on a trip to Scotland to hike the West Highland Way. It was way more comfortable than any normal sports backpack I took hiking before.

    Another great thing about this backpack is that it is tailored towards women. That makes it very easy to carry around all day without any back or hip pain. It also has many pockets to store all the little things that would otherwise end up at the bottom of your pack.

    I would recommend this backpack to anyone who wants to go on day hikes and needs a bag that is durable, fits all their gear and is comfortable to carry around all day.

    Disappointed in change in size
    I'm an avid osprey fan. Have used the tempest 20 for years for day hiking in Scotland. Just bought a new one as my old tempest getting old. The size is smaller and the stuff panel on the front is greatly reduced. Its a fantastic pack but I'm basically going to take it back because it's so much smaller and I often had just enough room in the old model. I dont want to buy the talon since its not designed for female shape. I'm really disappointed as I loved this model before.
