Osprey Tempest 40 Backpack - Women's


See available daypacks


Beat the crowds to the viewpoint. With enough room to carry the 10 essentials and then some, the Tempest 40 takes you through dawn-to-dusk missions and minimalist overnights. A ventilated back panel and harness keep the load close to your body for comfortable carrying, but let air in to cool your back. The continuous-wrap hipbelt stabilizes your load to keep you balanced on rocks, logs and ridges, and Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachments make it easy to go hands-free on scrambly sections.

  • Mesh-covered die-cut foam hipbelt, shoulder straps and back panel are lightweight and let air flow
  • Seamlessly integrated lumbar pad and hipbelt transfers weight without rubbing
  • Top-loading access to the main compartment underneath the removable lid
  • Additional side zipper entry into main compartment
  • Bottom zipper provides quick access to your sleeping bag
  • Stretch-mesh pockets on the shoulder strap, hip belt, sides and front are easy to access on the go
  • Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment lets you stash your poles without taking off your pack
  • External hydration sleeve accommodates a 3L reservoir (sold separately) and is easy to load and unload without opening the main compartment
