Love this pack! I've had one for 6 years and other than a little dirt, it is like new. It probably has close to 2,000 backpacking miles on it and it is still going strong. A great weekend pack or longer distance pack for relatively light packers. Lot's of good features - the right amount of pockets, good hydration setup, good suspension. It is a tad heavy for ultralighters' taste, but the stronger materials are what contribute to it's long life. One thing I'd note is that it is a men's pack and the women's equivalent is too narrow in the shoulder straps for me. So, this pack might work well for broader shouldered/stocky women, but really broad dudes might find it to narrow a fit. Overall one of my best pieces of gear.
Ive yet been able to use to pack on a backpacking tip, but I've used it several time for trips to visit family. I love the adjust-ability and all the various straps. It feel very comfortable and fits me perfectly. I'm 5'10" and 160lbs. I'm also really into how awesome it looks. The outer 2 pockets are larger than I expected, which is really great for easy access.The shipping and customer service was awesome! I particularly liked the "sealed with a kiss" and free bumper sticker. We'll just wait and see how well it holds up. I have super high hopes.
"Awesome pack that will last a long time."
Very satisfied! With a full load, the pack wears very comfortable for me and feels balanced, stays centered while on rough terrain. Got it in large, I'm 5'10, and it fits me like a glove. The hip strap is comfortable for me with 25-30lbs, weight rides on my hips. The fabric for the side pockets are a bit snug for my 1 liter Nalgene, but the elasticity and seams have handled very well, 3 overnight trips so far. The straps allow you to compress the pack very well, and have held up to tough use with no signs of wear. The stow and go aspect is a nice feature that I did not care about until I used it for the first time, quick and convenient. I am an Osprey fan for life after this pack!
I recently went on a backpacking trick with this bag and I loved it. Comfortable to wear for hours. Just enough to hold everything I needed for a couple nights in the mountains. Good quality bag with an amazing warranty should anything happen to it. I am going on a long trip to the middle east and I plan to only take this bag as along.
