Description

The women’s-specific Osprey Kyte 46 is a chameleon. With a separate zippered sleeping bag compartment and external sleeping pad straps, it’s a fully functional overnight pack. Or cinch down the StraightJacket™ side compression straps and take it out for a day of climbing at the local crag.
Whatever you put inside, Osprey’s LightWire™ frame transfers the load to a comfortable spacer mesh harness and hipbelt. This innovative suspension system ensures all-day carrying comfort, especially in warm conditions when the Airscape™ mesh backpanel comes into play.
When it comes time to unpack, the main compartment has top loading or side zip access providing multiple portals to get at your gear without struggle.
Other storage features include a full-length vertical zippered side pocket, top-lid and under-lid zippered pockets, side and front stretch mesh pockets, and two zippered hipbelt pockets.
Along with the extensive pocketry, there are dual front daisy chains and web attachment points on the top lid for anchoring gear to the exterior.
Other useful features include an external hydration sleeve, tuck-away ice tool loops, and Osprey’s Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachments. The entire pack can be shielded from the elements by deploying the integrated raincover.

try an airporter cover or duffel bag cover for flights

Comments about Osprey KYTE 46:

Sorry I'm writing this "review" in lieu of the ability to add a comment to a review. Osprey makes shell bags that backpacks can go into. The airporter bag has just one zipper and you can use a regular TSA approved lock on that. We used a more generic duffel bag with the same result just poorer fit. We realized we were going to have that non-lockable, all-these-open-pockets issue on a plane, too.

Comments about Osprey KYTE 46:

I haven't been able to use this backpack at all because majority of the time I will be going on a plane to get somewhere, and I can't take this backpack on a plane, because it can't be locked. I would be using this a lot more if it was able to be locked which it might be. I still can't figure out how to lock it though I have tried so many ways it just doesn't work.

    Comments about Osprey KYTE 46:

    The Kyte is by far my favorite backpacking pack at Osprey because it is a quiver of one for me. I use this pack from everything from week long backpacking trips to climbing in the desert. The 46L is large enough since I tend to have minimal gear for backpacking. And I love the durability and side access for big days and heavy loads while climbing at Indian Creek. It's the perfect blend between lightweight yet durable. I am also 5'10" around 145 lb and find it difficult for backpacks to fit me properly. Osprey's highly adjustable torso lengths are a huge gold star in my book and the Kyte S/M which is the larger of the two sizes fits me like a glove.
