Osprey Kestrel 48L Backpack

Product description Osprey Kestrel 48L Backpack

With several international awards to its outstanding utility and performance during hiking and outdoor activities, the Osprey Kestrel 48L rucksack remains one of the most popular, capable options on the marketplace.

Thanks to its AirScape™ backpanel, the Kestrel is a highly breathable and comfortable backpack that allows great airflow through your back in combination with its LightWire™ suspension harness. These highly wear-resistant shoulder pads – with a sternum strap and webbing hipbelt to match - also have external access for a hydration reservoir in case you wish to include it, and are fully adjustable for a variety of heights and constitutions.

But it is on its inside where the Kestrel proves to be a true workhorse. A double set of internal compression straps, located at this rucksack’s top and bottom areas, keeps your belongings in place at all times: a very useful feature in a bag that includes, in addition to a variety of organization pockets, a separate sleeping bag compartment with floating divider and a waterproof, removable raincover.

This utility is also kept on its exterior, where the Kestrel has several trekking pole attachments, easy-access pockets for mountaineering tools and additional fastening straps so you don´t lack any equipment on your next expedition. Off the grid.

With a proven legacy, the Kestrel 48 is a rugged, high performance backpack, designed to be a true outdoor workhorse.

Kestrel 48 is designed for medium duration backpacking trips, or adventures where you´re carrying a moderate amount of gear.

This spacious pack provides room for plenty of gear for your multi-day 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 48 also feature upper lid access with a drawcord closure, alongside a lower sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider.

Kestrel´s backsystem has been designed for comfort and stability, featuring Osprey´s tried and tested AirScape backpanel and a sturdy hipbelt and harness design, these packs will comfortably carry a heavy load.

An adjustable design allows you to personalise the height of the backpanel with ease, using a hook-and-loop torso panel.

Kestrel 48 features numerous locations to store your backpacking essentials, including nylon-reinforced water bottle pockets, dual zippered hipbelt pockets, a large front shove-it pocket, top lid pocket, under lid pocket with key-clip and external-access hydration sleeve.

Finally, Kestrel 48 comes equipped with all of the essentials for life on the trail.

an integrated and detachable raincover, 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.

Very good quality and comfortable. The green package is more beautiful than photo’s.

Great framed pack


Amazing pack, great size. Includes rain cover. Just a tad heavy, but understandable considering the back support and all the features.

Great bag


First osprey bag that I own and it feels great. Good construction, great pockets and adaptability as expected. Haven´t used it a lot yet but from what I felt it´sa great choice. It packs a sleeping bag and a few days clothes without a problem



Super comfortable, spacious and beautiful. Super recommended

Good quality


Fast shipping and pack well.



magnificent I recommend. it is better than in the photo.

Excellent service.


Very good backpack. Delivery before the proposed dates.

Comfortable and effective


Very comfortable, and with 48 l it fulfills in terms of capacity for two or three days. even with a tent. Although you have to know what to take and how. I have given it quite a bit of cane on various routes since the summer, until now in winter.

good, nothing exceptional, worth the price


it's a very good backpack, 48 is a large bag for a day to 3 day hiking. the internal frame is good, the materials are good and it's design is really practical and useful. i have a bit of a problem with the upper "hat" part of the bag. bottom line - very good but nothing exceptional - i had a deuter before and it was equal overall

Expectation covered


If you buy from Mexico by ordinary mail, do not expect the shipment to arrive in the estimated time, exactly 5 months it took me to receive the shipment due to sheer bureaucracy. After all, it was worth the wait as the cost is still less. The backpack arrived intact and just what was purchased. Excellent purchase option

Osprey Kestrel 48L S/M


Arrived very fast and well packed. It’ my 2nd Kestrel. This new Kestrel design is much better than previous.

Very good service


Backpack top delivery in your time recommend

Great quality


Good backpack for 2 to 3 days hiking. Useful design and reasonable price. Also the green color is very pretty.



This is the first time we have purchased a mountain backpack. It has excellent expandability and usability, including capacity, number of pockets, daisy chain, and hydration pocket position.

The product you are aiming for


I'm using the old model 38L, but I bought one that is one size larger. There is a zippered pocket on the left side of 48L and above, which is useful. The tie band that fixes the ice ax and pole is shared with the pocket band from this model, making it refreshing. We are satisfied that we can purchase cheaply.



Excuse me I live here in Bucaramanga Colombia I want the Osprey kestrel 28 or 32 backpack in red or red dragon as I do to get it and its price very kind thanks

Mountain hiking project for 6d


the scope of delivery is complete, processing ok. The stick holder takes some getting used to. With a small back length, 46L becomes 48l



Прошло уже 2 месяца с момента оплаты, но товара нет. Более 1.5 месяцев заняла доставкa в страну. Сейчас пишут, что проходит таможню уже 7 дней.



Satisfied customer here, the goods is intact and legit! Premium material and top quality.

Excellent quality.


Excellent quality, released with 100km and 15kg for 3 days and not a scratch, just the inconvenience due to lack of habit. Totally recommendable.

Adjustable back length


A product that fits the back very well

Amesome hikingbackpack


For this size it has great features allowing you to easily get to everything and packing is a breeze. Light weight and rugged to.

Nothing to say. it's osprey!


After much research into the dilemma between Kestrel 48 and Atmos 50, I opted for Kestrel 48 which turned out to be the right choice for its intended purpose. Multi-day trekking with practical storage and access solutions. The quality of the backpack is fantastic without negative repairs. Thanks to Trekkin for the impeccable service. To consider in future purchases.

Great backpack


A good backpack, in my opinion one of the best as hand luggage in an airplane. The only drawback in my opinion is that the top valve is not removable.

Great backpack


I doubted my first purchase on this site, but there were no surprises with this product. The backpack was sent in the correct color and size. Great backpack. Previously, there was the same backpack, often used as hand luggage in an airplane when traveling to Asia.

All are satisfied.


I was a little worried because I couldn't confirm the actual product, but I was satisfied with both design and making. I haven't used it yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. I was worried because I was shopping from overseas, but I am satisfied with the low price but smooth response. I also want to use it!

Very good


Very good quality and perfect fit my body. The classic design with new color is really good for me.

Very satisfied


I hesitated for a long time with the exos 48, but I am satisfied with my choice, very pleasant, light and especially full of storage!

Great product


I will use the Kestrel 48 backpack in August on the way to santiago. It seems exceptional to me because it adheres perfectly to my back. Superfast delivery and affordable price.
