Another excellent pack from Osprey! I swear this Kestrel 32 feels like it holds much more then the 32 liters stated. It's the best daypack out there. I can say I’ve tried other well known manufacturer’s of packs and always come back to Osprey. I own two Kestrel packs now, a 48 and now a 32 and both fit like they were custom made for me. The only other pack that fits and carries as well is my Kelty Redwing 50. By the way I have an Osprey Aether 60 on the way. Just a comment on the excellent customer service from Backcountry.com. It’s always a great experience talking with the very knowledgeable reps at Backcountry. They’re always upbeat, ready to help and seem to go the extra mile to satisfy. Keep up the great job Backcountry!

The Osprey Kestrel 48 just maybe the perfect pack. I’m 5’11”, 190lbs, 19” torso, and the M/L fits like a glove. I’ve had it out now for two 3 day hikes and it held all my gear, never felt it shift or sag. At 4lbs, it’s not a light weight pack, but the extra weight adds to its stability and durability, so well worth it. External loops and pockets round it out. Both Kyle and James at Backcountry where very helpful and offered options which made my decision and purchase a breeze. Hats off to Osprey and to Backcountry for being first rate companies.

First off I was surprised at just how much room this pack offers. It seems much bigger then the 3100 L. I used it for a 3 day get away and this pack had more then enough room for all my gear. Very easy on the back, comfortable fit, great suspension. The front loading design made it a breeze to access my gear, the side pockets are roomy and again easy to access. The staff at Backcountry are great as well! They answered all my questions, offered suggestions and made my purchase much easier. The Kelty Redwing is an icon in backpacking history and Backcountry is my place to shop for all my hiking gear.
