All about this product



Osprey’s Kestrel 68 Rucksack is designed for longer trips, and allows you to take more essentials. The large capacity provides space for bulky gear or allows you to take more essentials. Accessing this gear is easier than ever, with a huge U-zip opening on the front panel, providing an easy way to organise your equipment. The Kestrel 68 also features upper lid access with a drawcord closure alongside a lower sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider.
