Ideal for fast-and-light day hiking, adventure racing and other active pursuits, the Osprey Tempest 16 Women's pack is sleek and functional. Despite weighing less than 1.5 pounds, the Tempest 16 is capable of comfortably carrying loads of up to 20 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 collarbone 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.
An AirScape back panel lends the Tempest 16 Women's pack flexible support and breathability. Both the Biostretch hipbelt and Talon Biostretch adjustable harness straps are padded with die-cut slotted foam and covered in mesh to keep weight to a minimum. Together they enhance comfort and optimize fit. Further enhancing fit, the hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt.
Accommodating users of different dimensions, the top-loading Tempest 16 Women’s is available in two sizes: X-Small/Small fits torsos ranging from 13"-17" in length and the Small/Medium size fits torsos that are between 16" and 20" in length. The storage capacity varies based on size, as well: X-Small/Small is 854 cubic inches and Small/Medium is 976 cubic inches.
The top-loading packbag is accessed beneath a lid that also includes a zippered storage pocket. Stretch woven pockets on the sides of the Tempest 16 Women’s pack offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. A small dedicated stretch pocket on the Tempest 16 Women’s shoulder strap is perfect for snacks, energy gels or electronics. Larger zippered pockets on the hipbelt offer quick and easy access to other gear and trail essentials. InsideOut compression straps on the lower sides allow you to cinch down the Tempest 16 Women’s and keep contents safely in place for load control.
Other features found on the Tempest 16 Women’s include a Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment on the shoulder strap, ice tool attachments with a bungee tie-offs and a patterned reflective graphic for visibility in low light situations. A lined, exterior compartment makes the Tempest 16 compatible with hydration systems (sold separately) and makes it possible to refill your reservoir without having to access the interior of the pack.
