The Osprey Kestrel 28 Pack is a versatile backpack for packing light on day to overnight hikes. The Kestrel 28 is the smallest of the Kestrel series, allowing you to keep your load down to 30 pounds or less. Available in two torso lengths, you can fit it for yourself and even loan it out to a buddy on off weekends. The Airscape™ backpanel is made with ridged foam to provide support as well as cool comfort. From there it's all about the bells and whistles that will get you through a day and night such as the zippered top pocket, Stow-On-The-Go™ attachments for your trekking poles and the integrated rain cover. That way you don't have to ditch the adventure when the weather gets wet.

Please note that the info provided above refers to the torso size each pack will fit, and NOT any dimensions of the pack. Below are some steps for how to get your torso length. You should probably have someone help take this measurement for you so it is accurate. And they might accidentally touch your butt.

• Start at the iliac crest, which is the top of the hipbones on the side of your body. These act like a shelf for supporting a pack hipbelt.
• From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down.
• Make sure you keep your back as straight as possible while measuring.
• This torso measurement determines what size Osprey pack you should carry. Refer to the size charts above to find your ideal size.
• If you are in between sizes, it is ideal to try them both on before ordering.

• Measure around your hips at your iliac crest, NOT your waist.
• A properly fitted hipbelt rides centered over the hipbones and needs to be very snug.
• The padded portion should wrap well around your hips, leaving a gap of 3 to 6 inches between the tips of the both hip pads when securely tightened.
• Refer to the Hipbelts size chart above to help determine your ideal Osprey pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for light loads I have had this pack for a year and figured I could give a full review. For the short day hikes, this pack works well. However, when you load it down (not hard in a pack this small) the hip suspension is very lacking. ,,,,The pack has ample pockets, extra tie offs, a rain cover, and is durable. I did lots of scrambling in Tahoe and the pack shows no signs of wear. The vented back panel breathes well and the shoulder straps are comfortable.,,,,I used this pack on about 20 or so trips this summer. I did Mt Whitney in a day and found the suspension system was not stiff enough to carry the 30lb load comfortably for the time it took for the trip. Unfortunately, most pack manufacturers seem to skimp on the hip belts on packs these days.,,,,Keep the load light and the pack will work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bag, love Osprey, Great for day trips I've had this bag for a few months now and taken it on a few trips. It is great for a day hike, or maybe for one night if you're a solid packer. If you're taking on a trip and not on a hike, you can fit enough stuff for a few days. It's great as a carry on if flying. Osprey has their lifetime warranty - not totally unique but nice to have the support. Mostly, I bought this bag for the built in rain cover. It fits easily into a pouch on the front and keeps the bag dry in some pretty serious rain. It's light, comfortable, and has a rain cover. Hard to beat for the size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around pack I can't speak to any extreme trekking, but for what I've put this pack through it's held up great and fit everything I've needed. Taken on 2 weeks through Peru and another 2 through Iceland I couldn't have asked for more.,,,,The zippers have never gotten stuck, and when I burnt through a strap on a baseboard heater Osprey had no problem replacing for me under their lifetime warranty.,,,,Also I've never had any airline question whether it would fit in the overhead

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do I like it? I've had this pack for about a year now, and used it for a pretty wide variety of things. It carries my laptop around too and from work, lugs climbing gear along, and has spent over 400 miles on the trails during the field season. I also recently took it on an overnight trip out in Desolation. So after all this, here's what I think of it:,,,,Pros: Lightweight, comfy (for lighter loads), rain cover is the dopest, pretty good size for a wide variety of things, back doesn't buckle when not stuffed to the max. Osprey replaced a broken buckle within a few days of me shooting customer service an email.,,,,Cons: Hip belt can be uncomfortable with heavier loads, hydration bladder is pretty hard to slip inside. Definitely too expensive for what you get, unless you find it on sale.,,,,All in all, it's a pretty good pack. But for all the time I spent using it, I never really fell in love with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little pack A very comfortable pack, even load to the max. I love all the adjustable waist belt and shoulder harness. Lots of pockets and lashing points that make it easy for me to carry me snowshoes and poles, a down sweater and jacket. A small compact alcohol or canister stove, dining set, pair of paints, sleeping pad, food for the day something like a Mountain House meal, a change of socks and long underwear, a water bottle or Water filter system, an 8'X8' tarp and hammock. Easly balanced to feel comfortable on my back even when climbing. I love the loops as well for ice axe use and for those that don't climb the hoops double as other attachment points for other stuff...the stretchable back pocket is where I stow my jacket or those must have essentials that require easy access. Waist belt has pockets for change, cell phone car keys etc...again easy access. The rain fly is already packed in its convent pouch. No more fiddling for one when it's dumping. A zippered top pocket has lots of storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storng I am shocked how much weight this little can carry!! I bought it because I need something to do day hike in and I would be able to carry maybe a rope or some climbing gear also it look just like one of my bigger packs.......the size is spot on....If its a bit to big you look into the Manta 20

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little pack that performs BIG Took this on a two day hike and was perfect for me....Overloaded it still felt comfortable and fits me perfect....I like that it's straightforward without being fussy....nothing extra to get in the way

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit smaller then you'd expect This pack is a bit smaller then it looks. However, it will hold the necessities. Especially great if you are an ultra light packer. Comes with a built in rain cover! That was a nice surprise.
