New for 2013! Ideal for long day hikes or lightweight overnighters, the Osprey Kyte 36 Women’s backpack balances weight, features, price and performance. A lightweight, supportive suspension enables the pack to comfortably carry loads of up to 40 pounds!
Committed to providing all outdoor enthusiasts with optimal performance, Osprey equips its women's packs with gender-specific design features. Harnesses are cut wider through the collar bone area and have an ergonomic taper in the chest area. Offering a women's specific cant and a narrower cut, the hipbelts found on Osprey's women's packs also cater to female users.
Employing ridge molded foam and built-in air channels, the pack's AirScape backpanel provides flexible support and breathability to combat heat build-up between your back and the pack body. A lightweight aluminum frame and a foam framesheet effectively distribute weight and deliver supportive stability. The XSmall/Small Kyte 36 Women’s pack is designed to fit torso lengths shorter than 16" and the Small/Medium size fits torsos ranging from 16”-20" in length. The hipbelt and harness straps are padded, covered in mesh and perforated to keep weight to a minimum. An adjustable sternum strap further aids in stability and enhances fit. Side compression straps allow you to cinch down the pack to keep contents safely in place and aid in load control.
The storage capacity of the Small/Medium Kyte 36 Women’s pack is 2075 cubic inches and the Medium/Large offers 2197 cubic inches of capacity. The top-loading packbag is accessed beneath a fixed top lid that incorporates zippered compartments for gear storage. A zipper on the front of the pack grants access to a lower sleeping bag compartment. Stretch woven pockets on the front and sides of the Kyte 36 Women’s pack offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. Large, zippered pockets on the hipbelt offer quick-and-easy access to other gear and essentials.
Other features found on the Kyte 36 Women’s pack include dual ice axe/trekking pool loops with accompanying tool tie-offs, an integrated raincover to protect your pack from the elements and removable straps for lashing sleep pads. A lined, exterior compartment makes the Kyte 36 Women’s pack hydration compatible and enables you to refill your hydration reservoir (sold separately) without having to access the interior of the pack.
