Ideal for day hiking, adventure racing and other active pursuits, the Osprey Tempest 20 Women’s pack is sleek and functional. Despite weighing less than 1.5 pounds, the Tempest 20 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.
Employing ridge molded foam and a built-in air "chimney," the Tempest 20 Women’s pack’s AirScape backpanel provides flexible support and breathability to combat heat build-up between your back and the pack body. 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. InsideOut compression straps on the lower sides allow you to cinch down the Tempest 20 Women’s and keep contents safely in place for load control.
Accommodating users of different dimensions, the Tempest 20 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 1098 cubic inches and Small/Medium is 1220 cubic inches.
Stretch woven pockets on the front and sides of the Tempest 20 Women’s offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. A small dedicated stretch pocket on the Tempest 20's shoulder strap is perfect for snacks, energy gels or electronics. Large zippered pockets on the hipbelt further offer quick and easy access to other gear and trail essentials.
Other features found on the Tempest 20 Women’s include a single Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment on the shoulder strap, a single ice tool attachment with a bungee tie-off and a patterned reflective graphic for visibility in low light situations. A lined, exterior compartment makes the Tempest 20 compatible with hydration systems (sold separately) and makes it possible to refill your reservoir without having to access the interior of the pack. An integrated LidLock clip securely stows a helmet without reducing the Tempest 20 Women’s pack’s storage capacity.

Real Customer Reviews
- Roomy and light extended day hike pack
Likes: Excellent design and light weight similar to my beloved Exos 58. Women's specific fit. Loads of room for carrying all you might need on an extended day outing. Great price at Backcountry Edge!
Dislikes: The Exos and the Tempest have stretchy pockets on the shoulder straps that are on the small side. Fit a lip balm or a very small phone. The iPhone 5 barely fit, and the iPhone 7 does't fit at all, nor in the waist belt pockets. A little more room in these stretch pockets would be an improvement in both packs.
- Love it
Likes: Color, fit and design are all great. I looked and tried on many backpacks before deciding to buy this one. The fit of the Osprey Tempest was what sold me. It didn't irritate my neck and the way it is designed, it fit very well.
Dislikes: Nothing so far!
