The General Store in Spokane now carries a wide selection of Osprey backpacks, ranging from day packs, multi-day packs, and adventure travel packs to their awesome kid haulers. One Osprey pack that can work for both big day trips and lightweight overnight or multi-day backcountry trips is the men’s Kestrel 48.
Built tough to sustain abuse from bushwhacking, canyoneering tight slots, or tool hauling (for you trail builders), it will take what you throw at it. This pack also comes with the standard Osprey feature of an adjustable torso length so you can dial in the right fit and an AirScape back panel to help keep your back dry.
Other features include a built-in rain cover, fixed top lid with external zippered pocket, under lid zippered mesh pocket, ice tool attachments, an external reservoir sleeve, zippered sleeping bag compartment, removable sleeping pad straps, zippered hipbelt pockets, side zipper access to the main compartment, a full-length vertical zippered side pocket, and more.
Check out a Kestrel or one of several other models of Osprey packs at the General Store on Division Street in Spokane.
