Other numerous locations to store your essentials include a lower sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider, nylon-reinforced water bottle pockets, dual zippered hipbelt pockets, a large front shove-it pocket, top lid pocket, under lid pocket with key clip and external-access hydration sleeve.
Fully featured, the Kestrel comes equipped with all the essentials including an integrated and detachable raincover, Stow-on-the-GO trekking pole attachment, multiple compression straps, sleeping pad straps, ice-tool attachments and multiple lashing loops.
Designed for comfort and stability, the backsystem features Ospreys tried and tested AirScape backpanel and a sturdy hipbelt and harness design for those heavy loads. This adjustable design allows you to personalise the height of the backpanel with ease ensuring you always have the perfect fit.
