The Osprey Kestrel 68 Backpack is the perfect backpack for long length 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 68-litre capacity means that you can pack bulkier gear, winter garments and still have room for your essentials. 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 easy with a large U-zip suit case entrance, you just need to pop your bag on the floor, and you can dive in to all your gear. Plus, a top lip access with a pocket, for the immediate items needed.
The Kestrel rucksack is packed full of features for your trekking needs, and your longer trips away. Such as hydration, which is super important when trekking. This bag has both a hydration compatible internal sleeve, and external side pockets for bottles of water. With all the essentials covered, there is nothing stopping you from getting out and about in the wild. Even if it’s raining…. this bag comes with a rain cover.
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.
