Ideal for light backpacking or thru-hiking, the Osprey Tempest 40 Women’s pack is feature-rich and functional. Despite weighing just round 2 pounds, the Tempest 40 is capable of comfortably carrying 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 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 40 Women’s pack’s AirScape back panel 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 40 Women’s and keep contents safely in place for load control.
Accommodating users of different dimensions, the top-loading Tempest 40 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 2319 cubic inches and Small/Medium is 2441 cubic inches.
The Tempest 40 Women's features a top lid that is removable and incorporates a zippered top pocket and heat-embossed under-lid pocket. Stretch woven pockets on the front and sides of the Tempest 40 Women’s offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. A small dedicated stretch pocket on the Tempest 40'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 40 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, a zippered sleeping bag compartment and sleeping pad straps. A lined, exterior compartment makes the Tempest 40 compatible with hydration systems (sold separately) and makes it possible to refill your reservoir without having to access the interior of the pack.
