Osprey Tempest 20 Litre Women's Hiking Day Pack (2017 Model)


The celebrated Tempest is now leaner, nimbler & more comfortable than ever before. Impressed? You should be.

The Tempest has been engineered for high-speed action - either on foot or on two wheels. The AirScape back-panel has been upgraded, along with a continuous hip belt wrap and a suspension system to help stabilise your load amidst dynamic, fast-paced activities.

In the past, you may have fumbled through the contents of your pack to access your gear - however, the Tempest eliminates the need for tedious rummaging with quick access via a zippered front panel. If you're time-savvy, you can easily shave seconds by using the top panel zippered slash pocket, the two mesh side pockets or the convenient stretch mesh harness slash pocket to stash any gear that you want to keep at your fingertips. The hip-belt also features two zippered pockets for convenient access to your camera, GPS or even snacks.

Oh, and don't forget about the external hydration sleeve for speedy reservoir refills. It's the attention to detail that really captivates us and when you're all over the map, the little things matter.

An Atilon frame-sheet ensures that the load is transferred evenly across the Airscape mesh back-panel, in addition to keeping you cool on the trail. The BioStretch seamless lumbar to hip-belt body wrap incorporates a shoulder harness and hip-belt that can be easily adjusted for on-the-go comfort, whilst the InsideOut compression straps add additional stability when you're negotiating rough terrain at speed.

The LidLock helmet attachment system gives adventure racers and cyclists an extra edge when every second counts. Osprey's Stow-On-The-Go trekking pole attachment system is also featured on the exterior as well as an ice tool attachment loop to hold your sticks or pick when you don't need them in your hands.

Osprey's new, innovative manufacturing process reduces waste - use less, do more.

An appropriately fit harness should finish 5 to 7cm below the armpit when at the correct torso length. The webbing should not touch the side of the body below the padding.


To determine correct hip-belt size, measure around the hips at the iliac crest, not the waist. The padded portion should wrap well around the hips, leaving a gap of approximately 7 to 15cm between the tips of both hip pads when securely tightened.
