Osprey Mens Kestrel 48 Backpack

$289.99 CAD 10004761

Designed & built as durable workhorses, the Osprey Mens Kestrel 48 is a true rucksack that eagerly carries gear off the beaten path into rugged, unpredictable backcountry terrain. With a close-to-body technical fit and a dependability you can trust days on end, this pack can handle scraping through sandstone canyons or scrambling over snow-covered peaks.  The Osprey adjustable torso lengths help you dial in your perfect fit & an AirScape backpanel to provide ventilation, whether you're working hard or hardly working. The integrated raincover can be deployed at the first sign of precipitation, Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole carry allows you to stash your poles when bushwhacking or scrambling, and side-zip main compartment access means you don't have to dump everything on the trail to grab what you accidentally packed in the bottom of your pack. Built with rugged bluesign -approved nylon and PFAS-free DWR Coatings.  Backed by our All Mighty Guarantee, forever.
