Ideal for long day hikes, the Osprey Kestrel 28 balances weight, storage capacity (1500+ cubic inches), features, price and performance. A lightweight, supportive suspension enables the Kestrel 28 to comfortably carry loads of up to 30 pounds!

Employing ridge molded foam and built-in air channels, the Kestrel 28's AirScape backpanel provides flexible support and breathability to combat heat build-up between your back and the pack body. The Small/Medium Kestrel 28 is designed to fit torso lengths ranging from 16"-20" and the Medium/Large size fits 19”-23” torsos. The padded, contoured hipbelt, and padded shoulder straps aid in stability and load transfer. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps further enhance fit. Side compression straps cinch down to keep the contents of the pack safely in.

The top-loading 1500+ cubic-inch capacity packbag is accessed beneath a fixed top lid that incorporates zippered compartments for gear storage. A large stretch woven pocket on the front of the pack keeps layers close at hand.

Other features include Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachments, tuck-away ice axe loops, daisy chain attachment points, an included raincover, a safety whistle built into the sternum strap, zippered hibpelt pockets, and stretch side water bottle pockets. An external sleeve is ideal for a hydration system (not included).

Great day pack.
Reviewed by Jason T. - February 5, 2019

Likes: Compact and comfortable. Included rain cover as I am using for winter hikes and snowshoeing. Easily fits extra layers, gloves, snow pants and down jacket and cinches tight.

Dislikes: Waist belt pockets small and not readily accessible for me as I’m a bigger guy. Not a critical fault by any means.

As with all Osprey packs the Kestrel highest quality. Constructed of heavier materials and a sturdier hip belt and harness system than the Talon series, it’s better able to carry comfortably heavier, bulkier loads than comparable loads.
