"My Home From Home!" (Posted on 18/10/2016)
The pockets on the front are great - they are deceptively large! I also like the bottom access point - makes getting the sleeping bag out so much easier, and means I don't have to unpack the entire bag to so! Similarly to the front pockets, the main pocket on the lid will carry a ridiculous amount of stuff! I also like that it can be removed, to shrink the pack down for shorter trips.
In terms of comfort, I would give it 5 stars! The way the hip band and shoulder straps hug the body just make it a joy to wear, and I the ventilation down the back is brilliant. However. I found myself having trouble with the fit on the fly velcro of the hip band. I need the hip band at its smallest setting, to be able to pull it in tight enough for the weight of the backpack to be kept on my hips not my shoulders. Unfortunately the velcro tended to slip, especially when wet and under strain. This meant I wasn't always able to get the hip band tight enough, resulting in one rather painful hike where I was stuck out in the middle of nowhere, with my rucksack pulling at my shoulders for the entire trip!
BUT! I spoke to Osprey about this, and they were amazing beyond belief! They've since sent out a hip band buckle replacement, which changes where the stress is on the hip band when tightening it, meaning I no longer pull on the velcro. Consequentially, I can now get the hip band tight enough again. Making this rucksack pretty near perfect my needs! And I was so so so so impressed by Osprey's customer service, they were incredibly quick to respond and come up with a solution to my problem!
That's not to say there aren't still a few issues I have with this rucksack. I find there are some surplus bits on it - like the divider you can use to split the main compartment. Why do rucksacks always have this? It just makes use of the space within the main compartment so much less efficient! I ended up cutting it out, because I never used it, and it just got in the way. The bag panel with the straps attached, in order to make it adjustable, can sometimes wiggle out of place a bit. Not a huge issue, I just couldn't work out why it wasn't fitting properly and it turned out one of the sliders had moved out of place. Only took a second to fix though! I also would have appreciated some sort of side access into the rucksack, but maybe now I'm just being picky!
So overall, I'm very happy with this rucksack. It wears very well (it has been rather abused in its short lifetime, yet it is still holding up strong), the build quality is excellent. And when I did have a problem, the customer service was second to none! Which when spending this much on a rucksack, does matter to me! Its comfortable, practical, and I look forward to many more adventures with it! When (or if!) it does finally wear out, I'll definitely be coming back to Osprey!

Excellent maintien. Même chargé j'ai l'impression que le sac reste léger!
Il ne me manque qu'une pochette pour gsm sur la bretelle.
