Sizing info

Escapist 25

Single track mind. If after a hard day's ride, the end of the trail is still blissfully unknown then you share our 'single-track' mind. This spirit of adventure is captured by the versatility of our Escapist series. Whether you're riding 100+ miles or commuting to work, the AirScape™ backpanel provides you with complete ventilation and support. Decided that today you're going to tackle some downhill? When you're thrashing those fast descents you'll appreciate how the Biostretch™ hipbelt and harness keep the pack cinched comfortably to your back. The Escapist's twin zippered hipbelt pockets mean you can quickly grab trail essentials on the go and firmly attach your helmet with Lidlock™. Keep your phone and sunglasses to hand with the scratch-free pockets in the harness and main compartment. The best rides inevitably result in dirty gear, store it separately with the Escapist's internal zipped divider. Keeping yourself hydrated when riding hard is absolutely key, with quick access to the external hydration sleeve you can easily refill your reservoir. When you're out riding over multiple days, you'll need to carry enough kit. InsideOut™ compression and PowerMesh™ stretch pockets allow you to securely transport all your gear no matter how rutted the track you're riding gets. An internal organiser means you can easily sort your tools, spares and pumps. Even when the weather turns for the worst, the built in high visibility raincover deploys quickly to protect your pack and all of your gear. Keep yourself visible in low light with reflective graphics and blinker light attachment.

Great bike backpack overall, just little details needed a change
Really great, light & comfortable bike backpack with a lot of useful features. I have two versions of this backpack, 25 & 32 for me and my wife, but I use them both depending of the adventure I'm heading on. For the last two years since I own them I found very few little details that in my opinion need to be slightly changed in order to achieve greater comfort in every aspect. I will describe them and with that I hope I’ll help for improvement of the backpack, because it’s a really, really great pack in general and would strongly recommend it to every biker.

First, I would prolong the upper side compression straps with the bucket. The strap is too short and I can't hold it around my pair of plastic knee protectors, not to speak for a rolled sleeping mat. Please give just some more 5cm.

Second, zipped pockets on the harness are really nice feature, but sometimes when I need to put quickly something bulky there (like my summer gloves) I have difficulty because they're pressed over with the shoulder straps. They are literally press in one another and that could be seen on the product image here in the website. So if you put something important inside these pockets you must be sure that s lot of the backpack’s weight pressing it over while you ride.

Third, but this is not big issue really. It is about the shoulder strap pocket. When I put on backpack fully loaded for my first adventure I realised that this pocket is strangely close to my face when I turn my head left. The size of the pocket does not accommodate smart devices over 4inch or GPS, so I don't find it so useful. So I thought that would be a nice feature if Osprey just make it removable and more device versatile.

The last issue is about the LidLock bike helmet attachment which I found very useful innovation and I have to admit I use it each time when my helmet is not on my head. But that’s how I found the problem. When the helmet is attached on the LidLock you have almost no access to the zipped front tool pocket and difficult access to the main compartment because of the LidLock tension.

It would be great If I can see some solutions in the close future for some of these little issues.

Amazing backpack
I couldn't find similar or close to Escapist 25. This is the best weekends or short time travel backpack.

Best backpack I have ever owned!
I have owned this pack for about 18 months and is it by far the best backpack I have ever owned! I have used it for cycling, hiking, climbing, camping, my commute and weekend away. It is super versatile, durable, look great (in black) and has never let me down. I liked it so much I even bought one as a peasant for a friend. Great Job Osprey, keep it up!

Excellent Pack......
Over the past 10 years I've had packs from most of the major manufactures..... some have been good, some have been very poor, none have been as good as the Escapist! Enough pockets to organise, not too many to loose things.The adjustable back system gives a perfect fit and all for just over 1kg. Truly amazing. Due to an old injury on my shoulder I contacted Osprey to see if they could help with providing a modified sternum strap... an elasticated one. Due to my poor description of the problem they were prepared to modify the whole should harness, at no cost, just to ensure I got a product that fitted my needs! Now that is amazing! As it was the part I needed modifying, was sent out within a few days (2 or 3), customised by hand and at no cost! and the modification works brilliantly.... I am so grateful............. I can now walk, as far as I want, with a pack that causes me no pain, for the first time in years. I am so grateful, thank you.

Utmerket
Jeg bruker denne på dagsturer i fjellet og ikke som sykkelsekk. Har oppi 2-miters drikkebelg. Er veldig firnøyd med antall rom, nøkkelholder, integrert regntrekk mm. En utmerket sekk for fjellturer!

Zaino ottimo
Ho provato oggi lo zaino Escapist, e devo dire di essere rimasto molto soddisfatto, aderisce perfettamente alla schiena e sembra quasi di non averlo. Acquisto veramente azzeccato!
