Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love Osprey's pack. From big mountains, to trad climbing in the Gunks, to Alpine, theres a pack from them in my quiver. I love the Kestrel, because it's super comfortable, loads easily, and has tons of ways to organize my gear. I use it primarily for backpacking, but also for cragging. I can fit a 60m rope, rack, draws, harness, 2 pairs of shoes, water, food and the kitchen sink, and still have some room left over. Great packs, and I highly recommend them!
