Very good, wirh space for improvement
The backpack is very good, durable and light compared to its 32l capacity. Pretty adjustable and spacious inside. Anyway rhe external hip and belt pockets don't fit modern (5.5 inch+) smartphones what would be quite handy.
Excellent functionality and size
This backpack is big enough for me for a full week in the mountains. I already had the Escapist 25, Which looks sleeker, but often felt limited in size. The Escapist 32 has all the same features (the key strap seems to be of a lesser quality, but that is a small detail) and a very versatile size.
I love this bag. Perfect size for me. Lots of organisation pockets. I've taken it on a few adventures already, it's built to last and I know I'll have it for years..
Perfekt für längere MTB-Touren, sehr sinnvoll eingeteilt, tolle Details
Habe vor 5 - 6 Jahren das gleiche Modell schon einmal gekauft.
War damit ebenfalls sehr zufrieden, wurde von mir stark strapaziert, ist jetzt in die Jahre gekommen.
Wow, I bought this bag with intentions of using it on multiday bike trips. I tried it as a daypack and this bag is awesome, so much space. I've been using it for couple of weeks now and its great. I using it for long days in city when I have to carry laptop, jacket, water, food, books etc. The volume isnt a problem and if u want to do the shoping and buy some water, milk and lots of stuff you just put everything there and have your hands free. Backpack carry weight very well even without strapping. All zipper works fast and great, additional pockets are good for keys, wipes, small items. I just made a small test and bag can carry my tent, sleeping bag and I got still lots of space left. Cant wait to test it on the multiday bike adventure. I bought it with good discount and I amazed with quality. I have more expensive backpacks and the Osprey is perfect balance between weight of the pack (1kg for 32l is awesome ) and durability. I am looking for a reason to buy another Osprey pack for different usefulness.
This is my second time purchasing the Escapist32 after a gap of 7 years. My first bag is still doing great and I just lend it away to a friend. The new Escapist32 retains all its well-thoughtout features and is delight and assured long term travel companion for many years to come and for many memories to make with it.
I have had this bag now for around 4 weeks; i cycle 10miles to work each day and this bag is great. It has a great capacity - so big enough for shirt, lunch, laptop, running kit and more without anything getting too crushed or crumpled; also a handy space for tools (pump, tyre leavers, spare tube etc); the main compartment can be zipped into 2 so there is also space for cycling overshoes and other water proof stuff. Also there is plenty of space for groceries on the way home. I have traveled to london with it as an overnight bag and again there is plenty of space for change of clothing and running stuff. But the great thing about this sack is the load distribution - irrespective of how much stuff i jam into it, it is a surprisingly comfortable bag to wear and cycle with and in no way restricts my movements - easy to turn my head to check and see what traffic is coming up and so on. Can't quite get over how good the load distribution is - so much better than my old bag - very clever engineering. The rain cover is fine and on the odd occasion when i have been caught out mid ride in the rain the sack seems fairly water proof also. The only slight draw back is the airmesh at the back which doesn't seem to offer as much ventilation as my old Deuter pack, but that had a rigid frame in it - which was heavier and less comfortable. I expect that when cycling in the summer it will be a warmer affair but this is a small grumble - overall this pack is massively recommended.
I've had this bag for five years and it's as good as new. Used on 100 mile fully loaded sprints across the South downs and daily 36 mile mtb commutes to work in all weathers. With the cover its waterproof through the heaviest downpour. All zips and buckles have stood the test of time. Best bag I've ever owned....so good I've bought two more for members of my family.
very good bag
gave it a 3 star because of the waterproof cover not being waterproof, i have had this bag for a while now i think over a year now, and i use it daily commuting to work and back, and i must say its a really nice size, also good for going out on a long adventure. how ever i didn't expect the waterproof cover not to be waterproof, when i got home and taken the cover of my bag was wet through not what i expected at all. i did sign up to the life time warranty but not really had time to look into it. over all i love the bag and love using it.
Light and super comfortable
It is very light, and with the range of adjustments you can fit it for yourself perfectly. The backpack carries loads of 10to 20kg comfortably, even bulky stuff. I personally use it daily, and even when shopping groceries- you can load 2 days worth of food for a family of 4! And ride a bike home with it- comfortably! With the compression straps it adjusts to almost any load inside so you can carry it well
The biking details are good, tools, pump, spare tyre etc can be fitted, even the helmet carry lock is usable.
Feels durable, haven't broken anything yet,
i use the bag for daily commuting, day hikes/bike rides with family, and even overnight hikes and bike rides. So far i am very happy with what i bought and since it was on sale i think i got great value for money too
