Envisioned and built as a durable, value-packed backcountry workhorse, the Osprey Kestrel 68 backpack offers load-hauling capability, ample storage (4000+ cubic inches), an adjustable fit, and an integrated raincover at a great price.

The pack uses a lightweight 3.5mm LightWire peripheral frame and a foam framesheet to provide optimal weight distribution and a balanced, flexible carry. A mesh-covered backpanel cushions the load against your back while allowing excess heat to escape so you stay dry and comfortable. An adjustable, padded hipbelt rounds out the suspension features and aids greatly in weight stabilization. Load lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap with a handy built-in emergency whistle allow you to dial in fit. The adaptable suspension system allows for torso adjustability.

Accommodating backpackers of different heights and torso lengths, the pack is available in your choice of sizes. The Small/Medium size best fits torsos ranging from 16"-20" and the Medium/Large fits from 19"-23".

The storage capacity of the Small/Medium pack is 4028 cubic inches and the Medium/Large has a 4150 cubic inch capacity. The pack's large main compartment is reached through a traditional top-loading access point, but a large U-shaped zipper also lets you access the packbag from the front. Additionally, a lower compartment serves as a dedicated spot for stowing your sleeping bag or other clothes and gear. A removable divider enables you to open up the interior to create a single spacious compartment. A front panel shove-it pocket, stretch mesh side pockets, and dual lid pockets provide other storage options.

Other features include Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachments, tuck-away ice tool attachments, side compression straps, removable sleeping pad straps, front panel daisy chain attachment points, and zippered hipbelt pockets. An included rain cover protects the pack in inclement weather. A lined exterior compartment makes the pack hydration compatible (hydration system sold separately) and allows you to remove or refill your reservoir without having to access the interior of the pack.

I love if how if you wanted to be a minimalist, the bag does strap down tightly and conforms to your back quite nicely. So far I have used this backpack for my outdoor rock climbing gears, hiking, and commuting backpack when I'm on the bike. Overall a really great backpack, definitely worth every penny! Info: I'm 6'1" 205lbs and the backpack fits comfortably on me.
