Ideal for day hikes or ultra-lightweight overnight trips, the Osprey Kestrel 32 balances weight, features, price and performance. A lightweight, supportive suspension enables the Kestrel 32 to comfortably carry loads of up to 30 pounds.
Employing ridge molded foam and built-in air channels, the Kestrel 38'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 Small/Medium Kestrel 32 is designed to fit torso lengths shorter than 19" and the Medium/Large size fits torsos that exceed 19" 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 Kestrel 32 to keep contents safely in place and aid in load control.
The storage capacity of the Small/Medium Kestrel 32 is 1831 cubic inches and the Medium/Large is 1953 cubic inches. The panel-loading packbag is accessed via a wide-opening front zipper. Stretch woven pockets on the front and sides of the Kestrel 32 offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. A top mesh pocket and large, zippered pockets on the hipbelt offer quick-and-easy access to other gear and essentials.
Other features found on the Kestrel 32 include dual ice axe/trekking pool loops with accompanying tool tie-offs, an integrated raincover to protect your pack from the elements and a lined, exterior compartment that makes the Kestrel 32 hydration compatible and enables you to refill your hydration reservoir (sold separately) without having to access the interior of the pack.
