Product Description Item No.   10185140

The Osprey Kestrel 48 Pack is a versatile pack for backpacking and hiking in a lightweight package. The 48 is just enough space for a multi-day or overnight adventure. The two sizes (S/M or M/L) are each available with an adjustable harness, fitting a wide range of torsos, so you can even lend this puppy out to a friend. No, lend the pack to a friend, not your sweet little puppy. The AirScape backpanel is made of a ridged foam that is supportive, comfy and cool against your back with a slotted hipbelt for support. The Kestrel has been loaded with features, my favorites being the integrated raincover and the Stow-On-The-Go™ trekking pole attachments. You never know when the rain will fall or when you need to go hands-free to climb over a fallen tree.

OSPREY MEASUREMENT GUIDE

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.

HOW TO MEASURE TORSO LENGTH:
• 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.

HOW TO MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE:
• 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 5 out of 5 by from The Best Extended Weekend Pack I have had this pack for 4 years now, and I have never even considered buying another pack. It's lightweight, has plenty of room for a 4-5 day trip, and has so many great features! The hip-belt pockets are fantastic for snacks, maps, or cameras, and the stow-and-go pole loops are fantastic. It has plenty of pockets to separate different types of gear. One of the best features, too, is that it comes with a rain fly so you don't have to purchase a separate one. Also, it comes with Osprey's amazing warranty, which came in handy for me this year. One of the clips broke on my hip-belt, and Osprey sent me a replacement no questions asked. I love this pack and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and fit I think the most important thing with a pack is that it fit you correctly. Everyone is a different shape. With that said, if that pack fits you correct then get ready. I have had this guy for 5 years now and have taken it everywhere from backpacking, climbing, to traveling through central america. I consider this to be the perfect size backpack. For light multi-day backpacking theres nothing better. For me its honestly all about the fit. I am comfortable hauling around any size load. For traveling it was awesome because there were many pockets that were easy to get to but at the same time it was easy to throw on top of a van or bus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack I recently purchased this item and all I can say is that I am impressed! It superbly combines functionality and comfort. My sleeping pad fits perfectly in the straps, and the bottom compartment is great for my sleeping bag. All the packs I've owned previously have had one pocket up top so it's nice to have to two zippered pockets...nice having smaller items stored in the upper one. I have not maxed this bag out, but I have noticed that it can maintain a wide shape due to the side straps and side zippered pockets. Not an issue though and I am sure it can be adjusted when packing. Awesome all around bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't rate this pack highly enough Living in Missouri, my options are somewhat limited for multi-day hiking excursions. I find that this pack is the perfect size for 2-night/3-day hikes. I normally go out with an ultralight 1-person tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, water, food, stove, and other miscellaneous items, and this pack seems to be the perfect size without being too bulky or heavy. Osprey really seems to have thought out every aspect and constructed an extremely high-quality pack here, from the built-in whistle, to the built-in rain cover.,,I tried on quite a few other packs, but this was by far the most comfortable (on my body at least) in its price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great manufacturer! Wonderful product I bought an Osprey Kestrel a couple of years ago.What a wonderful product. Sometimes you buy something and it is SO good that you put the extra money into it. The ratio of organized compartments to large spaces is perfect and it is extremely light weight. I bought it for hiking the Appalachian Trail, but I also now find that I am using it for traveling on the train and visiting folks, it is so light weight, convenient and practical. So I have a hiking backpack and a piece of luggage all in one! And despite hiking, camping, getting soaked, throwing it on airplanes, etc., it has held up extremely well and still looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete package, trustworthy Rainguard and trekpole loops are there when you need them. Perfect for an overnight hike, or stuff the heck out of it and you can do a 5 day summer trip. I've overpacked many times and it shows no wear, the zips and materials take abuse. If packed modestly I feel comfortable MTB with it, not too cumbersome. Side pockets and bottom opening are a must, belt pockets are a convenience. The top organizational pockets you will find handy, but unusable if you over-stuff the main compartment. A downside is that the hydration bladder needs to be put in before packing otherwise you cannot get it in. Can't get my sleeping pad rolled tight enough for the bottom straps, but easily be affixed otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lightweight (not ultralight) pack Rated for 35 pounds; most comfortable if loads kept to less than 25 pounds. Would be a good daypack, but I use it as my overnight pack (2 -5 night trips.) I carry 18 pounds (including food, pack, gear and water) for a summer weekend, so it's perfect. 48L capacity means you have to commit to a minimalist style, using very light, compact gear (no synthetic sleeping bags.) I can fit winter gear in, too. The pack combines a supportive, adjustable suspension and hipbelt with an excellent pack bag design; cut off the extraneous internal divider, straps, and gimmicks, and you are only a few ounces over 3 pounds. Hipbelt pockets are useful. My favorite feature: the long zippered outside pockets - perfect place to keep rain gear handy (or maybe tent.) 2-compartment lid a bit gimmicky, but may be useful to you; lid does not fully float. Water bottle pockets a bit stingy - hard to get a full liter bottle in, but you can always put a half-liter bottle in each side. All in all, my favorite pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really great Pack Ill be honest, there are two things i dislike about this pack,,,The first is the zippered pockets on the hip belt. Great idea but terrible location. I have a m/l pack. Im a 33 waist. The zippered pockets are on my sides and i cant use them because i cant reach them to function the zipper. (you'll see),,Second is the side pockets. They are where you'll want to put a water bottle. Yet the sides are to low to hold in a standared 2 liter Nalgene.,, Beyond those two simple things, the pack has held out great. Im fairly abusive to it and it still has no punctures, tears or abrasions that compromised the DWR finish.,,I have had to contact Osprey for some different things and they are top notch. They have always made me perfectly satisfied!,,
