Simple yet effective. Hikelite is the ideal combination of high-performance features, durable materials and excellent value for money. Designed with everything that you need for a day’s hiking, these convenient packs come a variety of colours to suit every adventurer.

Two PowerMesh™ pockets on the side of the pack will comfortably hold a 1L water bottle, while the upper compression strap doubles as a walking pole attachment. A removable webbing hipbelt and adjustable sternum strap help keep this pack in place and the upper scratch-free pocket provides a perfect place to store your keys, snacks and sunglasses.

    Not fit for purpose!
    The backpack water bottle pocket really is a disappointment. On two walks I have lost my water bottle from the pocket. The hiking pole attachment is also lacking. The poles slide down and come lose as was the case when scrambling a tricky rock face. Not very impressed for the price!

    Nice backpack that could have been great
    I bought the Hikelite 26 for a two-day jungle trek in Vietnam. While porters carried a part of our belongings, the Hikelite perfectly fitted a helmet, camera, tripod, jacket, a 2L water bladder and some personal items. The zipper opened far enough to access these items easily. The mesh back panel made the Hikelite very comfortable to wear along the 22 km trail, even in these warm and humid conditions. I also chose this backpack, because it is very light. This was a big plus, since I also used this as a carry-on bag on a domestic flight.

    It’s a bit of a hit-and-miss with the Hikelite 26, unfortunately. It is great as a backpack when hiking in nature, but it lacks functionality in urban conditions. As described by others, water bottles tend to fall out of the side pockets easily once your bag isn't filled enough and the compression straps (really placed to low) push out the bottles even further. The bag would have been more functional if it could hold bottles when it would not have been filled to the max.

    I also missed an internal pocket to keep, at least, a phone, wallet and passport safe. There’s only a small pocket with zipper on the outside, but when walking around at a busy outdoor market or traveling by crowded public transportation, I don’t like to make it too easy for pickpockets to get to my valuable belongings. Just a mesh inner lining with a zipper in the main compartment would have been perfect.

    The Hikelite 26 is a very comfortable backpack to wear, and you’d want to wear it everyday in different conditions. It’s well made, but lacks functionality to make this nice backpack a great versatile backpack, especially with a quite high price of €90.

    Pro's:
    + lightweight
    + comfortable to wear

    Cons:
    - no internal pocket for valuable items
    - side pockets do not hold bottles all the time

    The most uncomfortable rucksack I have ever owned!
    I own 6 Osprey rucksacks and a part from this one all are comfortable to wear for up to 12 hours on the trail. My Hikelite 26 leaves sores on my back where the lower pads rest at the base of my spine. The rucksack is very light for this type but is so lacking in additional pockets and compartments. Although a rain cover is included. I'm still a firm believer that Osprey make the best rucksacks in the world, just not this one. I've just ordered a Talon 22 as a replacement.

    Très bon produit de randonnée pour la journée
    J'ai marché sur les Chemins de St Jacques de Compostelle pendant 18 jours. Ce sac est parfait pour porter les besoins de la journée. Le plus le couvre-sac inclus. Le moins le manque de profondeur de la poche ouverte sur le devant, pas très fiable.

    Ho comprato questo zaino, sarebbe ottimo ma con la sacca idrica da 3lt osprey, durante ogni movimento si sente un rumore fastidioso della sacca a contattocon lo zaino.
    buono

    The packpack I was waiting for !
    I am pilgrim since ten years and walked with it last autumn from Paris to Santiago de Compostela and this spring from Sevilla to Rocamadour. More or less 4500 kilometers. It's exactly the backpack for ultralight walkers (me: 4,5 kilos including the Hikelite, without water). After these two walks it's almost like new: It just needs to be washed ! I already tried before others Osprey: Exos 45, Talon 33, Manta 28. All with perfect quality but the Hikelite is perfect for ultralight long treks. Which means you can use it eyes shut for a day trip ! I insert a 2 liters water bag in the pocket inside, not bottle in the strech side pockets, without any problem. 6 stars !

    hikeilte 26 - my favorite back pack
    great back pack for so many opportunities. Whether on journey, short trips by food or with my bike or e-scooter. Every day I have it with me. Not only a very nice design. Additionally a well-thought product, when I compare it with others. Great and quick customer service. Thank you much, dear Osprey-Team.

    Almost perfect
    I think this is an extremely good day bag, and is very light and comfortable to use. I'd have to agree with the side pocket assertion, but went with the water reservoir as a result and have had no issues as a result.

    Love it but bottle pockets are useless
    I really love my Hikelite, use it every day when I cycle to work. However, like others have said here, the bottle pockets simply suck. They are completely useless, bottles of 0.5 liters or also 1.0 liters ALWAYS fall out. I have not had this experience with other Osprey bags (I had a Sirius, which had much tighter bottle pockets). Real disappointment. I know that a bottle would maybe stay in the pocket if the daypack is packed really full, but probably many people (like me) often don't pack it to the max.
