All the features you need for basic hiking and technical outings.

The Kestrel 32 Daypack's panel-loading design allows quick access to all your gear, and Osprey beefed it up with features you'd usually find only on larger overnight bags. A front stretch-Lycra pocket provides a quick place to stash your shell, and two hip pockets keep your camera, compass, and snacks readily available.
  • AirScape back panel provides support, circulates air, and features a LiteWire frame instead of heavy, rigid aluminum stays
  • Durable nylon construction resists abrasion
  • Plenty of pockets give you easy access to small essentials
  • Ice axe loops and Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment points let you attach extra gear externally
  • Reverse StraightJacket compression straps let you reduce pack volume if you're carrying a smaller load
  • Integrated rain cover helps you cover your gear in the event of a storm

The ultimate Do-it-All pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this pack over 3 years ago in green. I used it every. single. day. From backpacking in the rockies, to road trips through the Midwest, and as a school backpack (it's great for stashing extra layers when you get to the classroom). And with a built in rain fly, you're good to go in all weather conditions.
It's a bit big for a day pack, but perfect for weekend trips, or even minimalist multi-day trips. I even used this on a 14 day backpacking trip through Wisconsin.
After about a year and a half, the zipper started to fail. I sent it to Osprey, and they sent me a brand spankin' new pack! (This time in black though, but I don't mind the color change)
I can't imagine having another pack, this thing is just too rock solid to go with anything else, and after the miles I've hiked, biked, sailed, drove, flown (for the record, when fully packed, it's the exact dimensions of the max size carry on bag for most airlines), and rushed to class with this thing on my back, there's no way I'd get anything else.

Responded on

where did you put your sleeping bag? did you attach it to the outside or put it in the main pocket?

Responded on

I do one of two things with my sleeping bag: either pack it into it's stuff sack and put it in the middle of the pack, just underneath my shoulders, or I keep it out of the stuff sack and use it as a liner in the bag.
I like the second method the best; you basically fold it in half, put it in the pack, then start packing your gear in.

Phenomenal!

I was worried about that if the 32L pack is too small for a weekend hiking. But the practice proved I was wrong, it carries well without sacrificing comfort, and it's compact pack with well design: long slim pack body for stuffs stack; wide zippered opening for fast accessing of interior stuffs;hip belt pockets for small gears, and top pocket for digital devices; most of the zippers and adjust belt can be accessed with one hand . Now I'm a big fan of the Osprey.

Phenomenal!

What pack?

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So comfortable! Forgot I was even wearing a pack. Lots of places to adjust and I found myself changing how I would carry it throughout the day. Got SO many compliments on it and felt fine carrying it through the brush and through a museum.

What pack?

Hi Shelby! I am interested in this pack. What size did you get? I am 5'7" and weigh about 130.

Okay pack--tricky fit for small torso

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Demoed this pack on several trails in SW Utah--lovely slot canyons and desert hikes. This pack carries well--but it only gets four stars because the adjustability range isn't quite small enough for my torso (which I guess you could make the argument that I should get the 4 stars and not the pack, but whatever). Though the shoulder harness can move up and down, giving you a bit of adjustability within the S/M and M/L, the S/M did not go down quite small enough for me. Also, the waist almost didn't cinch down small enough either.

Aside for it being a little long and therefore rubbing my sacrum and my shoulders a little too much, it fit a great deal of stuff comfortably and in a well-organized manor, was bomb-proof rubbing against rock in the slot canyons, and has external slot for hydration (so no slipping a hose though an annoying tiny slot in the pack and no struggle to load a full reservoir into the inside of a full pack).

There are many other delightful things about this pack (large hipbelt pockets and included rain fly that I almost had to use while hiking in the desert) but those listed above are the top three for me.

But again, this may not be the greatest if you are of petite stature as it didn't work well for my 15" torso, 26" waisted self.

Great day pack

This pack is a good balance of fit, durability and weight. I am 6'2" 190lbs and the large fits very well. It is long and fits close to the body , so center of gravity is not off balance like with my older pack. Great combination of pockets and main access is easy with the wide zippered opening. Room enough for lots of gear, food and clothing, but compresses well with a partial load. I'm a big fan of Osprey and this pack hits the mark for a versatile do-everything day pack.

Better than the older version

I recently got the 2012 version of the Kestrel 32 and am very impressed. I've only used it on a short hike so far but it carries very well; better than the 2009 version for me.

While the older version of the pack didn't seem fragile at all, this one feels even sturdier. Very good build quality. The hip belt pockets can be open closed with one hand.

There's plenty of room for gear for a full dayhike and will fit as carry-on if using it for traveling. I'm very happy I picked this up. Backcountry's delivery to Canada was very fast (less than a week).
