Description

Simpler is often better, and if you prefer going light and moving fast in the woods, mountains and beyond, the Tempest 40 is the pack for you. 40L of capacity is perfect for committing day hikes and lightweight multi-day trips. Ventilated and comfortable, the women's specific BioStretch™ harness and continuous wrap hipbelt combine with a fiberglass frame to create an incredibly stable carry system that hugs your body so you can stay balanced on the trail, ridge or peak. We scratched our heads and updated our AirScape™ backpanel to use less material and glue while making it more breathable to keep you cool on hot days. When uphills turn technical, our Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole carry system keeps your hands free for upward movement. Zippered hipbelts, side stretch mesh pockets with dual access, a harness pocket, and top-lid storage provide all the organization you need.

Key Attributes

BUILT FOR SPEED

MULTI-SPORT

From top loaders to lumbar packs and everything in between, the Talon/Tempest series accommodates the needs of hikers, bikers and more.

CONTINUOUS LUMBAR-TO-HIPBELT WRAP

Users can't feel seams that don't exist, so we left them out. Our updated Talon/Tempest hipbelt makes it easier to focus on the journey instead of the pack on your back.

Great for Hut to Hut trips or Ultralight Thru Hikes

5

I've thru hiked the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail with Ospreys Aura 50, but wanted something smaller and lighter for an upcoming trip through the Himilayas to Everst Base Camp, Goyko Lakes and the Upper Mustang region. These hikes are Hut to Hut--so I didn't need to bring camping gear. My load weight was about 6-7 kilos--(15 pounds) and I found this pack to be perfect. The small profile makes it easier to rock scramble and get around obstacles, and the suspension system is just enough for a light load. It had all of the features of the larger more robust packs, but was much lighter. Very easy to organize your pack with all of the pockets and top lid. I have also used this pack with my full camping kit on two day hikes--around 20 pounds--and found it performed well, although not as comfortable as the Aura AG. I would recommend Osprey get rid of the sleeping bag compartment/zipper--as most people simply stuff their bag at the bottom of the pack and take it out last at the end of the day--no need for something like a zipper to add weight or compromise leak protection. Other than that a great pack for women--just wish they would make an Exos for ladies!!!
