Product details

A 48-liter men’s backpack that was made for a long day of trail work or quick night (or two) in the wilderness, the Kestrel 48 is lighter than most packs its size, even with an integrated raincover and several organizational features that make stowing gear like poles and jackets easy. The well-ventilated AirScape backpanel can be adjusted to different torso lengths, and the spacermesh harness and hipbelt make for a comfortable carry all day.

Key Features:

  • Built for Anything – Rugged nylon fabrics stand up to harsh outdoor environments, like sandstone canyons and alpine bushwhacks, and the pack includes a raincover.

  • Intuitive Features – The Stow-on-the-Go trekking-pole system can attach poles without having to take the pack off, an external reservoir sleeve makes it easy to refill the hydration reservoir (not included) without having to open the pack, a side zipper gives easy access to the main compartment, and a sleeping bag compartment has a removable divider.

  • Lightweight AirScape – The backpanel and adjustable harness are made with breathable, rigid foam and custom fit varying torso lengths to comfortably handle heavy loads.
