Tempting you into a quick night up in the mountains.
It's Friday afternoon and you had a long week at work. A full Saturday or even a quick overnight up in the mountains would do you a world of good, and the Osprey Women's Tempest 30 Backpack is ready for a quick pack-up-and-go. The designers at Osprey molded the Airscape to fit the female torso comfortably, and it acts somewhat like a chimney to ventilate any excess heat so your back isn't a sweaty mess when you reach your campsite.
Biostretch covers the shoulder straps and waist-belt for maximum comfort and breathability while you hike, and the ErgoPull tabs cinch across your waist for an ideal fit. This top-loader fits the supplies you need for a dawn-to-dusk trip or a light overnighter, and you can remove the top lid and use it as a separate bag to stash a point-and-shoot and snacks in it for a quick scramble up to the ridge. The Tempest 30's hydration sleeve is easily accessible for quick refills, side stretch pockets can fit extra water or some snacks for the trip, two zippered pockets at the waist-belt store items you might need on the trail like lip balm or sunscreen, and one front mesh pocket holds your map, a book, or a last-minute item you might want before you head out.

- Q & A
Best Extended Day Pack
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this pack to replace my TNF Casamir 28L pack that was designed with the same intentions in mind: engineering a lightweight daypack for mountain adventures. Now that I have this pack, I can't believe I waited so long to upgrade! The back panel is incredibly comfortable for a lightweight pack -- you won't find Osprey's full Anti Gravity system in this pack because it is designed with weight>comfort in mind. But comfortable it is!
I bought the mint color because turquoise is my favorite... and now I look like a giant Easter egg when I'm hiking.
The fabric itself is quite durable for a lightweight pack. I took it canyoneering last weekend in a canyon that was no wider than 8 inches at some points. It was dragged, dumped, tossed, and sandpapered down the canyon for 2.5 hours and I noticed minimal wear.
I look forward to using this in the summer as my mountain mission pack for 20 hour adventures. Enough room to pack a down layer, rain layer, med kit, snacks, helmet, map, half rope, sunglasses + case, gaiters, and the works. It is also able to pack down quite compact for shorter missions with all of the adjustable straps.
10/10 would recommend to a friend.
+ Tuck away trekking pole/ ice ax carry straps
+ Adjustable harness
+ Hip pockets (I keep chapstick and a knife in one and a clif bar in the other)
+ Top Clip in addition to cinch close on the main compartment of the pack (great for keeping a rope in place)
+ Fabulous color selection
+ Mesh pocket under the brain to keep keys, ID, map, etc
- hip pockets too small for a a phone
- strap pocket to small for a phone or GPS device
