Tempest 20L Backpack
Your last adventure race went something like this: you navigated on foot through a labyrinth of trees until you reached a river, hopped in your canoe and paddled over to where your mountain bike was waiting, jumped on your bike and pedaled over a mountain pass. Or maybe this just described one of your typical weekend days. Whatever the case, the Osprey Women's Tempest 20 Backpack is a perfect lightweight companion for your adventurous day exploits. This panel-loading backpack holds up to twenty pounds of gear and water, and keeps things organized in convenient pockets. It features a women-specific fit and breathable, cushioned comfort to keep you from conjuring visions of chucking the bag downriver before you reach the end of your journey.
The hip-belt's ErgoPull adjustment makes it easy to tighten or loosen on the fly, and the shoulder straps, harness position, and sternum strap can also be adjusted for a perfect fit tailored to your anatomy and load. The ventilating ridged foam back panel keeps you fresh while padding your back through long day hikes or multi-sport excursions. A pull-out LidLock helmet attachment fits through the vents on your bike helmet to secure it to the front of the pack, loop and bungee attachments hold tools and trekking poles, and multiple smaller pockets hold items you'd like to quickly access.

Not as perfect as it is beautiful
- I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought:
- 5' 2"
I wanted to love this. I?ve been on the hunt for a day pack that has better ventilation to avoid the back sweats. This one really wasn?t better than the one I have. Why don?t they have day packs with external frames to keep the load off your back and allow for ventilation? I don?t love the pockets on the waist belt. They sit back too far to be easily accessible and don?t fit a phone. Too expensive to keep when it doesn?t solve the ventilation problem. Good looking pack though.

Great bag for any outing
- I've used it several times
- Size Bought:
- 5' 3"
I have been using this bag for about a month for daily dog walks and a couple of short hikes. I can carry everything I need with me, and I love that water bottles actually stay put in the mesh outer pockets. The bag has a very comfortable fit and you can adjust just about every aspect (shoulder straps, waist, height on the back / shoulders, sternum strap); that being said, the waist strap seems to ride a little higher than other similar bags I've had (not annoying, just noticeable). The mesh back panel keeps the back a little cooler than other bags I have been using - it's not sitting directly on my back with a light load, but still gets pretty sweaty (there's only so much one can do about that in the Southeastern US in summer!). Overall, I am pleased with this purchase and can't wait to take it on a longer trip or day hike.
