KESTREL (Mens)| KYTE (Womens) SERIES: Backpacking/Day Hiking
The Osprey Kestrel & Kyte Series are quiver-of-one packs that thrive in any environment. These packs feature a highly adjustable suspension system and an integrated raincover. Trail workers, backcountry guides, outdoor professionals and... birdwatchers. The Kestrel/Kyte Series is ready for everything and anything you can throw at it or in it. Durable with the right kind of simple design, curated features like an integrated raincover and just enough ventilation in a package that looks just as good as it functions.
The integrated , removable raincover can be easily accessed to provide pack protection in adverse conditions. It is stored in a small external zippered compartment near the bottom of the pack and can be quickly slipped over the pack providing protection at a moments notice.
A key feature on many of Osprey's backpacks is our unique Stow-on-the-go system which allows the hiker to tuck away trekking poles quickly without having to remove the pack.
3.5mm LighWire peripheral frame effectively transfers the load from harness to hipbelt. Atilon framesheet spreads load across the entire backpanel to the peripheral frame.
Mesh covered ridged foam allows maximum ventilation while keeping the load close to the body
Spacer Mesh Harness and Hipbelt
Soft, edgeless padded mesh offers a soft breathable contact surface and large load support. Adjustable sternum strap with rescue whistle
The Osprey Kestrel 48 is a jack-of-all-trades. With a separate zippered sleeping bag compartment and external sleeping pad straps, it’s a fully functional overnight pack. Or cinch down the StraightJacket™ side compression straps and take it out for a day of peak bagging in the high country.
Whatever you put inside, Osprey’s LightWire™ frame transfers the load to a comfortable spacer mesh harness and hipbelt. This innovative suspension system ensures all-day carrying comfort, especially in warm conditions when the Airscape™ mesh backpanel comes into play.
When it comes time to unpack, the main compartment has top loading or side zip access providing multiple portals to get at your gear without struggle.
Other storage features include a full-length vertical zippered side pocket, top-lid and under-lid zippered pockets, side and front stretch mesh pockets, and two zippered hipbelt pockets.
