The Osprey Kestrel 38 Backpack is the perfect backpack for short to medium trips. It’s a high-performance bag that will allow you to travel with all of your items comfortably, so you can focus on the views and the outdoors. The 38-litre capacity means that all your essentials can be packed with ease, you can choose whether to use the internal divider or not depending on how you like to pack. Access to your gear has been made simple with the large side zip and the top lip access.
The Kestrel rucksack uses the AirScape back system, which increases the ventilation in the back. This system combined with the rugged hip straps means that the bag feels extremely stable on your back when walking. The sturdy hip belt and harness means that this bag is capable and comfortable carrying heavy loads. The back length on this bag can easily be adjusted, just by sliding the shoulder strap panel up and down and using the Velcro to secure it in place.
Men's specific fit. These back packs can be adjusted to fit your back length, which is the measurement between your C7 vertebrae and hip bone. We recommend that you pack your bag with the heaviest items close to your back, keeping the weight as centered as possible. Osprey have an online app to help you find your perfect back size.
