View Full Version : Osprey Kestrel 58 thoughts

I tried a few packs out the other day to use for my annual 4 day hikes and I think this would fit the bill but don't see too much discussion on this pack. The price is right at about $180.

I do see a lot of discussion on the Exos which is about 1.5 lbs lighter but more expensive. I don't have gear in the UL range, but it isn't the heaviest either. The Kestrel is about 5 oz heavier than my current 50L pack but bigger, more comfortable and laid out better.

Sorry, meant for this to be in General Gear Talk not General.

The Kestrel is a nice series of packs. I have a Kestrel 32 for big dayhiking loads (camera gear, etc.) If it fits all your gear and carries well, go for it.
