The cleverly designed new AirScape™ accordion foam backpanel combined with a seamless lumbar-to-hipbelt body wrap increases air flow and provides an even more comfortable carrying experience, by keeping the load close to the body and spreading the weight evenly around the hips. The Tempest’s backsystem also offers an impressive women’s specific fit, with an ergonomically shaped hipbelt, harness, yoke and backpanel.
Tempest 16 is complete with innovative solutions such as Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachment, single ice-axe attachment and InsideOut™ compression straps. The zipped pockets on each side of the hipbelt allow quick and easy access to smaller items such as phone, snacks and GPS. Inside the lid you will find another conveniently placed pocket, ideal for hat, gloves and small items that you need easy access to. Keeping hydrated during activity is essential and re-filling your hydration reservoir has been made easy with the quick access external hydration sleeve with reservoir hanging loop.
Tempest 16 is compatible with all Hydraulics™ reservoirs and the size Extra-Small High Vis Raincover.
Tempest 16 is built to be lightweight, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. No matter the adventure, Tempest has your back.
Santa Cruz, California, 1974. Mike Pfotenhause sits down at his sewing machine and embarks on a challenge. A challenge to create an innovative backpack that is complex enough to move with the body. From a head full of ideas and a burning passion, Osprey was formed.
Fast forward to today, Mike’s one-man vision has grown into a wide range of Osprey rucksacks and accessories that are being used from the highest of mountains to the remotest of islands and everywhere between.
Osprey only design and produce high quality products that are built to last. Innovation is in every strand of each pack and an identity born out of true specialism, Osprey continue a true pioneering spirt that it started with in 1974.
