Just like getting hiking boots to start out, I knew I needed a backpack as well. You never know what situation you may find yourself in while out in nature and I always like to be prepared…..and maybe I just wanted a cute backpack too!
I did quite a bit of research on backpacks before purchasing. I thought I was settled on the CamleBak Aurora when I can across the Osprey Women’s Tempest 9 Backpack. This pack was absolutely perfect and I LOVED the lifetime warranty that came with it. Osprey offers a lifetime warranty on all their gear and this gives me peace of mind when purchasing!
The reason I love this pack so much is that it is made specifically for women. It hugs in all the right places to guarantee a comfortable hike. I love the straps that I can adjust and all the different pockets to store all of my hiking necessities. My favorite pockets are the ones on the hip straps!
I highly recommend this pack only for day trips and not overnight trips. You will need something much larger for an overnight trip. The Tempest is perfect for water, snacks, first aid kit, and other necessities for a day hike.
