The Osprey Kestrel 28 is a daypack designed to go anywhere and do anything. Fill it with river gear and lash it to the boat or cinch down the StraightJacket™ side compression straps and take it out for a day of desert canyoneering.
The 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 access to get at your gear without struggle.
Other storage features include top-lid and under-lid zippered pockets, side and front stretch mesh pockets, and two zippered hipbelt pockets.
Along with the extensive pocketry, there are dual front daisy chains and web attachment points on the top lid for anchoring gear to the exterior.
Other useful features include an external hydration sleeve, tuck-away ice tool loops, and Osprey's Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachments. The entire pack can be shielded from the elements by deploying the integrated raincover.
External hydration sleeve in backpanel simplifies refilling and protects pack contents from spills.
Large front stretch mesh pocket for quickly stashing extra gear.
Tuck away tool loops with bungee tie-offs provide secure tool carry.
Dual front panel daisy chains allow for extra external attachment points.
An integrated and removable raincover protects your gear from foul weather. It stows away in its own external pocket at the bottom of the pack.
Upper and lower reverse StraightJacket™ side compression straps stabilize load and also serve as external gear carry straps.
Stow-on-the-Go™ system allows users to tuck away trekking poles quickly without having to remove their packs.
