Torso Sizing

Many Osprey packs are available in multiple sizes to fit a range of torso lengths. To determine your torso measurement, please see diagram below.

This measurement starts at the iliac crest, which is the top of your hipbone on the side of your body that acts like a shelf. From this point, measure to the C7 vertebra, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down. Reference the torso length below to match the correct pack size.

Men's / Unisex

Women's Specific

True function and comfort along with style. We have over 20 years of experience designing women's packs.

Pack Shape
The pack's shape is patterned to be more narrow and with added depth in the right places. This allows greater freedom of movement and increases stabilization by lowering the position of the load to a more optimal center of gravity. As a result, the load is more proportionately supported on the hips and along the structure of the back.

Harness
The shoulder harness is designed with thoughtful angle changes and varying padding thickness to create an anatomical fit for a woman's neck, shoulders and chest. This is balanced with optimizing where the tension from the pack's load is carried. For women, our sternum strap is a key piece in equalizing the pressure across the shoulder harness. The padding used is also specific in order to be more comfortable when carrying a heavy load.

Hipbelt
The hipbelt is designed with thoughtful angle changes and varying padding thickness to create an anatomical fit. The hipbelt is also narrower in height for better comfort so it doesn't dig into the ribs or upper thighs when scrambling or climbing. Most importantly, women's hips are more conically shaped with a larger difference between the waist and hip measurements. We sculpt and angle our hipbelts accordingly for comfortable load transfer and optimal support. Again, the padding used is also specific in order to be more comfortable when carrying a heavy load.

If you're a fool for simplicity and convenience, feast your eyes upon the next generation Tempest.

The Tempest 9 is exactly the right size for an after work hike or bike ride and thanks to the updated AirScape accordion foam back-panel, along with a continuous hip belt wrap and suspension system your load will be perfectly stable amidst any dynamic, fast-paced activities.

In the past, you may have fluffed through the contents of your pack to access your gear - however, the Tempest eliminates any time consuming, tedious rummaging with plenty of easy access, storage features. If you're time-savvy, you can effortlessly shave seconds by using the stretch mesh slash pocket on the harness, the two mesh side pockets or the convenient, adjustable bungee front panel storage 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 and the lower 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 featured on the exterior to hold your sticks when you don't need them in your hands.

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

  • The Airscape™ back panel and BioStretch™ waist-belt/shoulder straps offer sensational ventilation & breathability.
  • An exterior hydration sleeve will house your reservoir and allow easy refill.
  • Includes side stretch pockets, two zippered pockets at the hip-belt and an adjustable bungee front panel storage area.
  • You can attach your trekking poles with the Stow-On-The-Go™ trekking pole attachment when they aren't in use.
  • The Tempest 9 has a load range of 5-8 kgs.

HOW DO I MEASURE MY BACK FOR MY PACK?
HARNESS SIZING

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.

HIP-BELT SIZING

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.
