Daypacks with an intuitive design, the Skimmer 28 is a simple and stylish hiking companion.

Designed for ultimate versatility, Skimmer 28 features a large daypack capacity which is perfect for year-round day-long adventures. An innovative Bump-Foam backpanel provides amazing levels of comfort and ventilation, while the low-profile harness and padded hipbelt enable excellent load-transfer, even when the pack is full and heavy. Skimmer also features a women’s specific backsystem design.

A stylish top-zip access point provides an extremely easy way of packing and unpacking the Skimmer, while an external hydration sleeve lets you slide your reservoir into the pack without having to unload it first. A hidden scratch-free pocket sits above the backpanel, providing a safe place to store sunglasses, a phone or keys. Underneath the pack, a separate pocket hides the integrated and detachable raincover.

Dual hipbelt pockets enable easy access to the trail essentials such as snacks or your headtorch, while a front shove-it pocket provides a safe and fast place to store your waterproof jacket. Dual zippered side pockets are big enough for 1L water bottles. An internal mesh pocket under the lid gives an easy place to keep valuables.

With a modern external design and high-performance features, Skimmer easily balances the essential features with a refreshingly clean aesthetic.

  1. The ultimate day pack
    I got my Skimmer 28 4 months ago and tested it in both urban setting and while hiking.

    I love the comfortable harness and back system than can be easily adjusted. The zippered side pockets work great for storing a 0.7l food jug. The internal pocket for valuables is a must for me, but the front shove it down pocket is also a nice addition. The hiking pole attachment system works well. Huge plus for the hip belt pockets, dedicated raincover and integrated hydration system. I'm also a huge fan of the compression straps that keep the load close to the body and I wish I had them in my Talon 44 too.

    Honestly, the only thing I would add would be a built in whistle on the sternum strap.

  2. Stylish pack (but)
    I needed a hiking pack for all-day hikes but I was looking for the feature really not easy to find in the current backpack offer - to have zipper pocket/s on the side/s (pure stretchy pockets are not acceptable for me to practically and safely organize all small necessities nor do I find reasonable to store all the small items in the lid zipper pockets). So this pack looks stylish, sits nicely and stably on the back, and has a good volume for packing extra layers, water bottles, snacks, etc. needed for a long hike. The raincover is a plus. So it may seem to almost touch the perfection. Almost... BUT - at least for me - it has one major drawback which makes me cry ... please tell me, why in the era of smartphones a brand gives soooo small hipbelt pockets to a daypack? I am convinced that more and more people use the smartphones for taking pictures during the hike so they should be at hand - and a hipbelt pocket is an ideal site. Unfortunately, Skimmer has so small hipbelt pockets that they cannot hug my phone or the camera /and mine both are of the smallest models on the market/. Really would be 5-star-satisfied with this pack but this frustrating detail makes me unhappy... So during the hikes I usually oscillate on an imaginary scale when carrying this pack, 75% of the hije enjoying the comfort , and the rest disturbing stops to hide the phone into the pack. Maybe the upgraded model will think of this...

  3. Small but perfectly formed
    I bought this as a gift for my wife who already had a day pack but lusts after my Osprey kit. She originally intended to use this one just for travelling and keep the other brand for her sports day bag. After using it once, she is completely sold. This Skimmer 28 gets used for hiking, day tripping, exercise classes and commuting! The top loading main compartment works well with sufficient access to get her laptop in and the zipped side pockets are handy for keeping keys secure and a water bottle in the other . Loads of adjustment in the straps for wearing "correctly" when carrying all day and slackens off in a second for casually carrying on the shoulder. Built in raincover is also a neat touch. Construction on all of our Osprey products is consistently good, and the Skimmer is no exception would give it more stars if we could.
