Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I absolutely love this day pack!!! It is my go to pack for hiking. I always research large purchases to make sure I'm getting exactly what I need and this backpack had great reviews. It is made to fit a woman's body which is why the hip belt is a bit lower than the men's version (Osprey Talon 20). I like all the compartments especially the separate hydration bladder compartment. The shoulder strap pocket is perfect for my cell phone or my EDC knife. Other reviewers were concerned about the waterproofing of this pack. I simply purchased the Osprey UL Raincover XS...nothing is getting through that! The bungee tool attachment is great for carrying my trekking pole (I only use one pole but two would easily fit). I bought a small Nalgene bottle for the side pocket (my regular size one was too large).
I only wish it had straps on the bottom so I could attach my Thermarest Pad. Instead I just stick it into the second side pocket. Not a big Con but I figured I'd mention...
Pros: - Lots of compartments. - Easy to adjust straps. - Color is as pictured -- at least for the Tourmaline Green. - Roomy. I bought this for a trip but serves well as a school bag if you don't travel heavy (i.e. use ipad for textbooks and have binders/notebooks) - Slim frame. This can be a con if you're looking for something wider. It's okay for my 14" lightweight laptop.. not so great for the 16" laptop (desktop replacer)
Con: - The main compartment's bottom layer is thin and I question its' durability. This makes me afraid of using it for anything heavy or put it on sharp/rough surfaces. - Not waterproof.
I will update this later after a week of vigorous use as a day pack with hikes in Hawaii.
UPDATE: I took this to Hawaii and it actually worked out great. It was raining parts of the days we were in Hawaii and the backpack repelled the light rain and sporadic showers so that was nice. Still not sure about...
I've had this daypack for a few years now, and I STILL LOVE IT. I'm 5'8" and around 145lbs, and ordered a Small/Medium in Stormcloud Grey. It fits me like a dream. I've taken it on many short hikes and longer trips, and even managed to fit all my belongings in it for a 2-week trek around Japan. (I was staying in hostels, so I didn't need camping gear or anything.) It's comfortable, durable, light, and has pockets in all the right places. The straps are easy to configure. The color looks great, and it hides dirt and stains well.
One of my girl friends recently borrowed it. She's 5'10 with an unusually teeny waist, and had yet to find a pack that actually fit her. But this one did. So she ordered one, too!
