The Curated Take

Elizabeth H., Camping Expert
By the Expert Community

The Osprey Tempest 20 is a great day pack for hiking, cross country skiing, or mountain biking. It is comfortable to wear and easy to adjust depending on what clothing I am wearing. It has hipbelt pockets and a top pocket for small items and a good size main compartment that is a great size for extra layers and snacks. I wish it had another pocket/organization system in the main pocket as the one small pocket fills up quickly and I end up with other small items floating around in the main compartment.

Overall I am very happy with the versatility and comfort of this pack and recommend it!

My ride or die backpack!

This is the best pack I've ever owned! I take it everywhere. Perfect for everything from post-work hikes to 14'ers! Can fit extra layers and snacks, or my small dog when he gets tired!

Comfortable, but has some design flaws

Originally posted at www.osprey.com on Jul 3, 2023
i have been using this pack for bikepacking when I am using a full suspension bike and need extra off-bike carrying capacity. I have taken it on several 300 mile+ trips. Although the pack is wonderfully comfortable for the size and amount of stuff I carry in it, there are 2 design flaws: 1) It is really hard to squeeze a full bladder into the bladder slot. 2) The top pocket is stitched to the back of the inner pocket. If I stash items in both, they conflict with one another. I can't really store much in either pocket. It's like having just one pocket with a divider. It would deserve 5 stars and my recommendation to friends if the above were fixed in a new iteration of the pack.

Came to the site again (with previous good experience from other departments) in need of a tent and footprint-- Elizabeth was great with recommendations and offering more options that stayed within the budget but weren't on the radar to begin with. That and helping with other recommendations generally for hiking/camping, she is greatly appreciated!
