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.

HOW DO I MEASURE MY BACK FOR MY PACK?
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.
