Im 5'5 an i was wondering if this pack would fit me i sized myself (sort of inaccurate? i know.) any ways every thing added up except for the top of the back is 2 inches below the top of my head? what is your opinion?
Perfect for backpacking
I bought this pack for a 2-week backpacking trip across Europe and I really loved having it. I'm only 5'4 so I bought the S/M and the size was perfect. The various tension straps helped me to quickly and comfortably adjust the pack to accommodate added bulk and weight as my trip progressed. The built-in rain cover was great for unexpected downpours and the padded shoulder and waist straps were very comfortable against my body. Also the Airscape really helped keep my back from getting sweaty (which just added to the comfort level of the pack). Overall it's definitely a high-quality backpack and was a great investment for future trips
Hi, I want to buy this pack but don't know...
Hi, I want to buy this pack but don't know which size (S/M or M/L)
I'm 5'8 165lbs
I tried it in a store but forgot to take note of the size...
Have you checked out the size chart? Its right below the dropdown to select size. It looks like for this pack you just need to measure your torso.
Adjustable shoulder straps and countless tension straps make it easy to get this pack to fit like a glove. Good breathability at contact points along your back. Top opening makes it easy to stuff all your gear. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is due to the straps that contect the top cover are tied into the mesh pocket portion of the pack and tend to pull pretty hard when you lock down the top. No a big deal and I don't see this affecting the longevity of this pack. All in all, a great pack for long weekends or ultralight multi-days.
Osprey Kestrel 58 and 68 2012 Redesign
What size hydration packet fits the best...
What size hydration packet fits the best in the Kestrel 58?
It's made for the 2L.
Actually, every pack Osprey makes that is over 10L in volume will accept a 3L reservoir. So, the Kestrel 58 is made for a 3L reservoir.
I use the 3L reservoir and it fits and works fine.
