Kestrel 38 by Osprey
With a proven legacy, the Kestrel 38 is a rugged, high performance backpack, designed to be a true workhorse.
Kestrel 38 is designed for short to medium duration backpacking trips, or adventures where you’re carrying a moderate amount of gear like on the Camino to Santiago de Compostela.
This spacious pack provides room for plenty of gear for your overnight adventures. Accessing this gear is easy through a large side-zip access point, stretching from the lid to the lower compression straps. This provides an easy way in to access your equipment or find exactly what you’re looking for. Kestrel 38 also feature upper lid access with a draw cord closure, alongside a lower sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider.
Kestrel’s back system has been designed for comfort and stability, featuring Osprey’s tried and tested AirScape back panel and a sturdy hip belt and harness design, these packs will comfortably carry a heavy load. An adjustable design allows you to personalize the height of the back panel with ease, using a hook-and-loop torso panel.
Kestrel 38 features numerous locations to store your backpacking essentials, including nylon-reinforced water bottle pockets, dual zippered hip belt pockets, a large front shove-it pocket, top lid pocket, under lid pocket with key-clip and external-access hydration sleeve.
Finally, Kestrel 38 comes equipped with all of the essentials for life on the trail; an integrated and detachable rain cover, Osprey’s Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment, multiple compression straps, sleeping pad straps, ice-tool attachments and multiple lashing loops.
Whether tackling mountainous terrain, deep forests or winding trails, these packs set a definitive benchmark in backpacking comfort and performance.
