The Kestrel 38 is a fantastic all-round daypack for climbers, walkers, mountaineers and, for lovers of ultralight kit, a great overnight pack too.

With enough space to swallow spare clothing, food, drink, and the rest of your hill essentials (and maybe some of your family's extras too), the Kestrel 38's well positioned compression straps also allow you to cinch it in when you're carrying a lighter load. A large main compartment, pocket in the lid and zipped entry at the base is a layout normally found on much larger bags but is just as useful on a big daypack: keep your kit well organised but get down to the bottom without having to unpack first!

Bottom Access via Zip - brilliant for that bit of kit you have packed at the bottom

Handy pockets on hip straps

External hydration keeps your water Isolated from your kit, in case of leaks -easier access for refill and removal .
Several lash points -some adjustable for height.
Would have liked a clip on / carabiner lash point on front of shoulder straps to hang a small pouch off (GPS, MOBILE )

Deeper side pockets as when pack is full it tends to "squeeze "your water bottles out of the side pockets as you walk along rugged terrain. especially metal sig types

Very comfortable, good size for all year round day sack. Room for all safety equipment,spare clothing,food etc. pole system excellent, as didn't have to remove sack in very inclement weather to get to or store away. Waist belt tightening very simple. Would have preferred in red.

Valued Customer

Comfortable so far but not yet used in earnest.
Some of the fixings at ends of cords were flimsy and easily lost.
