Light Daypack, Perfect for an Adventure
The pack is lightweight, fits comfortably on my frame (avg length torso) and is capable of holding a surprising amount. I've used it as a daypack while traveling through the Andes, and have been pleased that it can hold the liters of water I need (including in a camelback I added), snacks, a few layers of clothing, and a large camera, among other small accessories. My friend hiking with me plans to order one after seeing how much I enjoyed it.

It is light weight and it holds a 3 liter bladder of water. There is enough room for clothes, rain gear plus a whole lot more. It is so comfortable and adjustable. It's amazing how much it holds for being so light weight. You can just keep putting more and more in it. I am considering hiking the Grand Canyon next year & this backpack will be perfect for that. Great backpack, would recommend it to all of my friends.

comfort at last
Finally! A medium size day pack I can load up that has padded hip belts that comfortably take the weight off of my shoulders. Elegantly designed with the human body in mind and crafted with nice touches like generous hip belt zip pockets with room for more than a bandaid, and easy to adjust straps. (average durability rating only because it's too new to say)

Great lite weight pack
I was looking for a pack that would serve multiple needs such as hiking, day pack and all around pack. This pack is perfect. It has a mesh panel in the back which is perfect for hot weather climates and it is VERY lite weight. The quality of Osprey is unsurpassed and the color selection is wonderful. I would recommend this pack to anyone who is looking for a good all around pack. If you are looking for a pack to carry your laptop then is probably isn't the best solution but for all other needs this pack is great.

I purchased this backpack 6 months ago and have used it on various trips, day hikes, and cycling. So far I have been quite happy with its performance. The pack is well suited for a range of activities. Its great for going to the store to pick up a six-pack and some groceries. The shape holds more groceries than you'd think and it comfortably holds 15+ lbs while riding for short stretches/errands (ca. 5 mi). The slits on the back fit a blinking red light for added visibility in traffic. And there is a piece that will easily attach your helmet for when you aren't riding. The number of pockets are good for organizing various items when traveling. I found that I can pack everything I need for a weekend trip in the bag and therefore can avoid caring extra baggage on planes. The hydration bladder sleeve is great if you want to use it for a day pack or cycle touring. You can easily carry a couple liters of water, extra cloths, and some food for a quick jaunt up a mountain or a day-long ride.
