With a proven legacy, the Kestrel 68 is a rugged, high performance backpack from Osprey - designed to be a true outdoor workhorse. Perfect for medium to long duration backpacking trips, or adventures where you’re carrying a large amount of gear.

Accessing your gear us easy through a U-Zip suitcase opening on the front panel, opening the front of the bag fully when unzipped allowing you to easily access all your kit. Standard access through an upper lid with drawcord closure along with a lower sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider.

The AirScape backpanel offers updated adjustable torso lengths and features a new injection-moulded framesheet for a stable, breathable, close-to-body carry, even when the trail gets technical. Part of the Kestrel/Kyte range so designed to provide a body-specific fit to achieve maximum comfort and stability across body types. Made for big days with an integrated raincover, trekking pole attachment and easy-access organisation.
