FS - Backpack - Osprey Kestrel 48L $100 (camping / backpacking)

Selling a couple of hiking backpacks, decided I prefer a day pack or my Jeep loaded with camping supplies! In brand new condition only used on a short overnight trip.

$100 takes it, plus shipping if you're not in the New Bern, NC area! Pretty lightweight, I'm sure it would be less than $10 to ship.

Backpack specs and reviews - Osprey Kestrel 48 Pack - 2011 Closeout at REI-OUTLET.com

Loads of organizational pockets, straps, hooks; pocket and slot for camelbak style water pouches, integrated rain cover, loads tons of stuff at 48 L or packs down with compression straps to a much smaller size. I have some close up shots of the extra pockets, etc. if you're interested.

You know the saying, better to ask forgiveness rather than permission, right?

hehehe, if you go for it then I can replace this one with the smaller one that I'm after! We're gonna go for the super, duper minimal style of travel with less than 35L bags! Ought to be interesting!

Minimalist backpacking is a lot of fun, I just noticed this is a 48l, that's bigger then what I think I really need, I've got two Kelly packs and a north face.

If I weren't strapped for cash right now, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I gotcha! Just keep your eyes on the thread in case things loosen up and maybe still available!

@jkaufman - would love to hear from you about minimal backpacking! My husband and I plan to get out and go with a small bag so we can go from woods to city and everywhere in between and not look like backpackers or hobos :P We want to just blend and look like regular folks just out for the day, we've whittled our needs down drastically. That part in itself is fun to me, seeing how little you can get by on!

I've actually used this pack for a 4-5 day trip, no tent, just a tarp sleeping back, rain jacket, ultralight stove (think: jetboil), freeze dried food and cliff bars, and two nalgene bottles and a camelback bladder
That's a borealis day pack

Awesome, that's exactly what I'm thinking and I love to read about others doing it! I have my eyes on a North Face backpack that has great waterproof reviews and is about the size of your borealis. We quit using a tent, small sleeping bag on the ground or an EnoNest hammock. Do you just use a regular ole tarp?

Here's a couple of sites I've enjoyed lately: Backpacking: Budget Independent Travel - Advice, guide & packing help and "Footloose and Fancy-Free in the Third World" -- Backpack Travel Guide by Randy R. Johnson

The main quandary I have is running our vacation rental and everything else and it's so much better to do on the laptop but I am having a hard time thinking about hauling along such an expensive piece of equipment. Maybe opt for some sort of tablet. Oh yeah, I haven't told you guys about the vacation house yet, now I know what to post next! I have been a total stranger on the forums for a lot of months... and a heads up, I might be (*sniff sniff*) selling my YJ soon.... we hardly use one jeep none the less two, not much need to drive these days

Backpacker is a great magazine, it's a blue tarp with a soft touch side to it and I'll use it as Botha ground tarp and a cover if it's raining, for running your business (because I do too) I put my electronic gear (phone and netbook if I HAVE too) I put it in a seal line case, completely waterproof, I would also recommend a SPOT device. Find you anywhere in the world and get you help if you need it, I noticed you posted a link to REI up there, I used my 20% off and dividend to buy one last year

I have a pack that size too, I used it when I first started out and wanted all my creature comforts but those comforts are heavy. I still use one this size for 10+ days.
