Osprey Airscape

Osprey Airscape
Osprey's AirScape™ mesh covered ridge foam backpanels set a new standard in the industry. With its ability to keep the weight close, provide cushion, allow ventilation and add load carry is quite a list of needs from this unassuming backpanel. It successfully accomplished all of that in a way that allows it to be used in the large gear hauling packs and lightweight day hiking packs.

Osprey Peripheral Frame

Osprey Peripheral Frame
Peripheral frame was a departure from the norm many years ago and it’s still the foundation of our gear hauling packs. A wire frame runs along the outside of the backpanel directly connecting the upper load lifters and the central core of the pack to the hipbelt to transition and spread the load. Allowing natural torsional movement, effective adjustable torsos, and different load range and backpanel builds makes this suspension design truly innovative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pack really fills the bill After years and years of another pack it was time for a new one. I searched to find one that was comfortable and fit me. Broad shoulders, long torso. Found the Kestrel with adjustable torso length!!! I never thought I would change my loyalties but I did!!! Love love love this pack. I wanted a panel loader, this is it. After I used this pack for 1 season, both of my daughters wanted an Osprey. They both have an Osprey now. I use the walking stick holder all the time, use the water bottle holders, use the pockets on the belt for essentials. when I day hike with friends they are all amazed at what I pull out of the Kestrel. I carry a backpack stove, trail model fishing pole, seat cushion, and snacks!! Love the raincover,I keep my raincoat in the same pocket. I cannot stress enough how I was loyal to another brand of pack, they do not make what I need anymore, so glad Osprey has such a HUGE selection. I now recommend Osprey to anyone that will listen. I also have a Talon 6 just used it today for a short hike with camera equipment and drinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet pack! I got the older version from a few years back. First, I'm hard to fit, and this pack is ridiculously adjustable from every angle. I love the front panel loading, I love not having an extra access zipper on the bottom, this works way better. Straps and belt: don't be fooled, they're not super padded, but they are beautifully form fitting, no rub spots, no bouncing around. Pockets: one on each hip fin, one on each side, one big stretchy one on the front, one in the lid. I use them for smaller items and stuff I need access to quickly. I really love the hydration system: the sleeve for the bladder is outside of the pack between the back panel and the pack itself, which means it stays out of the way of everything else and if you don't use a bladder, you have an extra pocket. it also comes with an integrated rain cover which works exactly as intended. This pack (S/M, my spine measures at 17") holds my Crazy Creek chair (that was a surprise, I expected to have to hold it in one of the side pockets and compression straps on the outside), rain layers, extra fleece, Buff, hat, gloves, socks, first aid kit, trowel and tp, extra mini Sawyer squeeze and collapsible bottle, cell phone, map, compass, knife, flashlight, food for the day and extra snacks, and a 2L bladder. My only complaint is there needs a better way to hold a large smartphone. I did find a nifty cool pouch Osprey makes which clips onto the shoulder harness. Works beautifully but many stores don't even carry those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pack Love the pack! If anything it is a bit too big for what I usually carry but I like having a sturdy hip belt and the smaller packs just don't offer that feature. When my shoulders get sore - especially on the way out after a hiking 15-25 miles in the Adirondacks it feels good to just release the shoulder straps and letting the entire pack rest on my hips for a little while. Also, while it is a little large, the top and bottom compression straps keep the load snug and in place. I tried on more than two dozen packs and this one just felt right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would Buy it again and Recommend it! I have to let you know I am happy with the pack! I have used it a few time and I'm telling you it comfortable. I am a very broad shouldered person with a longer torso, most pack day pack do not conform to. I have spent this winter looking for a day pack and I could not find one to fit properly and comfortably. Researching I came across the Kestel 32 and a few folks with similar problems highly recommend it. BUT be warned of the same problems they stated and I am passing on, the STRAPS they are not long enough! You cannot wear anything more that a NANO style or FLEECE jacket! I wish all day-pack would adapt the adjustable torso system and have longer straps. Only reason I can't give it 5 star is for the only two things I find missing with this pack.1 and Very VERY important to me is the Straps they are to short!!!!! 2nd extra front pocket for smalls item and storage. Besides those two issues I have, this is a great pack!

Can you strap a sleeping bag or tent to it?

Asked by: Dribble
Hiya, thanks for your question! Since this pack is designed for day hiking, I wouldn't recommend strapping a sleeping bag or tent to it. The slightly larger 38 Liter pack would be better for overnight hiking. You can find it here: http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_Osprey-Kestrel-38-Pack_10303526_10208_10000001_-1_ Hope this helps!

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

• 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 chart 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 Hipbelt size info above to help determine your ideal pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.

- + Warranty Info

ALL MIGHTY GUARANTEE - Osprey's Lifetime Warranty

When Osprey celebrated their 35th anniversary in 2009 they launched The Osprey All Mighty Guarantee. What that means to you is ANY Osprey product purchased at ANY time is covered. Any product, any reason, any era - the all encompassing Osprey lifetime warranty ensures their dedication to superior design, craftsmanship and quality of their products is backed up by their actions to replace or repair a pack so it lasts a lifetime. Or two.

Here are some details.... Osprey will repair for any reason, free of charge, any damage or defect in their products, whether it was purchased back in 1974, or ordered right now from this site. If they are unable to perform a functional repair on your pack, they will happily replace it. Osprey proudly stands behind the All Mighty Guarantee, so much so that it bears the signature of company founder and head designer, Mike Pfotenhauer.

Some Osprey All Mighty Guarantee FAQs:

What do I do if my Osprey pack needs to be repaired?
If you live in the United States and need a repair done on your Osprey pack, you will first need to obtain a Return Authorization number. You can do this by reaching their Returns Department at 866-314-3130, or using the information that is provided with a new Osprey pack.

What do I do if I just need a replacement pack part like a buckle?
Give Osprey a call at 866-314-3130 and they will take care of you.

How long will it take?
You can tell Osprey you need the pack returned by a certain date when you request a Return Authorization number, and they will do their absolute best to meet that deadline.

What if my pack is super dirty and stinks?
Clean it before you send it to Osprey to get repaired. The real reason is that there is a law that says if your gear is too dirty or odiferous (smelly), Osprey is not allowed to repair it and will just return it to you.

Do I have to pay for shipping?
A little bit. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the pack to Osprey, and they will pay shipping to return the pack via UPS or FedEx. Osprey cannot be held responsible if packages get lost in transit, so make sure you get a tracking number when you ship your pack out. Also, if you use expedited shipping be sure to let Osprey know (866-314-3130). They, in turn, will give your pack priority processing and return it using a similar expedited shipping method.

Do I have to register my pack to take advantage of this incredible guarantee, and/or need to be the original owner of my Osprey pack?
No! Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee is truly ALL MIGHTY. If you own an Osprey pack that needs to be repaired they will repair or replace it.

JUST A HEADS UP: If your Osprey product is not repairable and is replaced, the original product will not be returned to you. They will try really really hard to repair your pack, but if they are unable to make a functional repair, they will replace it. For products that are no longer in production you will be contacted by Osprey to discuss replacement options.

All good answers. So what is NOT covered?
• Osprey program packs or any Osprey pack used by outdoor programs are ONLY covered under Osprey's Program Pack Warranty, NOT AMG.
• Size and/or fit issues. Make sure you buy a pack that fits. Check out the size guide on Osprey product pages for more info.
• Personal preferences like colors you don't like, style of the pack, or not enough/too much room in your pack. Check the product description, features, specifications, and size guide to make sure you are ordering the right pack for you.
• Third party Repairs or replacements. Send your Osprey pack to Osprey and Osprey only to get fixed. Easy as that. And don't try fixing things yourself.
• Cosmetic wear and tear including any reasonable aging of your pack that affects only the appearance and not the function of your pack. Be proud of those scars!
• B.A.M.G. (Before All Mighty Guarantee) Repair Work. The All Mighty Guarantee applies only to repairs requested on or after January 1, 2009.
• A Osprey Hydraulics reservoir is covered by a limited 1-year warranty, which is the reasonable lifespan of a reservoir. Pouring and storing of warm/hot or boiling water in your reservoir WILL VOID your warranty, so don't do that. Reservoirs are NOT designed to contain or handle liquids at temperature.
