Product Information

A great midsize workhorse of a pack, the Kestrel 48 has enough space for overnight trips, days out with all your climbing gear or travelling light on extended trips.

The lower zip allows access to the bottom of the bag without having to rummage down through the rest of the contents: you can get at your sleeping bag without having to first unpack your waterproofs, food and stove! When it's fully loaded, the Airscape back with its steel spring frame comfortably transfer the load; when you're not carrying so much, the compression straps keep everything lashed firmly in place.

FREE STANDARD UK DELIVERY on all orders 27th - 30th November 2015

London Enthusiast
Stow on the go really useful.
Side and belt pockets came in handy.
Difficult to fit a full water bladder in when the pack is full.
Waist belt not tight enough but admittedly it's not designed as a women's rucksack.
