From lightweight day hikes to challenging mountain terrain, the new Talon and Tempest series represents the evolution of an icon. This series is equipped with an innovative injection moulded backpanel and boasts 100% recycled nylon fabric.

Osprey says

The Tempest 40 was designed with lightweight multi-day trips and travellers in mind. When navigating technical terrain, an injection-melded AirScape backpanel and continuous-wrap harness and hipbelt moves with you. This streamlined women’s-specific pack features a separate sleeping bag compartment with removable divider, zippered hip pockets, ice axe and trekking pole attachment points and reservoir sleeve. Constructed with high-quality bluesign-approved recycled high-tenacity nylon with a PFC-free DWR coating.

Our Verdict

Osprey's Womens Tempest 40 Litre Rucksack is packed full of features that make it stand out from many other packs in the market. One area it performs brilliantly in is the level of comfort it delivers. The foam padding in the AirScape back panel works really well to allow air to flow through and reduce your temperature and the discomfort that comes with a sweaty back. It is also soft enough to be comfortable with a full load while strong enough to stop anything digging into your back. The perforated foam used in the shoulder straps has a similar effect and they combine really well to maximise comfort.

The 40L capacity is great for storing plenty of extra layers big days out on the mountains and if you can pack super lightweight it works well for fast and light overnight adventures too. It's also a decent size for everyday use if you want the versatility to be able to carry a lot around with you. The pack is loaded with features from the stretch mesh side and back pockets to the well sized hip belt pockets, the Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment points to hydration options. Little details like the extra large zip pulls makes use with gloves on much easier. There are attachment points and compression straps to personalise how you get the most out of this pack.
