With a new, stylish aesthetic, the Tropos is a top-of-the-range daypack designed for your active lifestyle. Featuring a suspended mesh ventilated backpanel, this pack will help to keep you cool on your commute or business travel.

Key features include a padded laptop sleeve which is suspended away from the bottom of the pack, preventing you damaging your computer when you put your pack down. The laptop sleeve features direct zip access, which allows you to breeze through airline security checkpoints or grab your devices with ease. Assisting with this, Tropos utilises an integrated kickstand which makes the pack stay upright by itself, so you don't have to prop it up when accessing your gear or reaching for your phone. This innovation also prevents the pack from tilting over and helps to protect its contents.

A front organisation pocket helps you keep your possessions where they belong, whilst a smaller scratch-free top pocket provides a great place to keep phones, sunglasses or other items which you need easy access to.

A vertical zip pocket on the front provides an easy place to store gloves or a jacket, along with twin stretch mesh side pockets that are big enough for a water bottle.

When not in use, the kickstand flattens for ease of storage.

The hidden garaging on the front of the backpack tucks any loose straps neatly away.

    Nice work/weekend backpack, but kickstand can cause wear on coats
    I have used this backpack for almost two years, mostly as a laptop/work backpack, and sometimes for weekend trips (as caary-on luggage).

    In general I think it is a good laptop/work backpack. It is sturdy, haven't had any noticable damage so far, with reasonably big zipper loops to pull on. The front compartment has some small pockets which help organize pens, chargers. etc. It's also good for keeping flat (A4) papers, notebook out of the main compartment. The main compartment holds enough for a change of clothes, extra socks etc for a weekend trip. If not full, the compression bands keep the bag quite compact. At the top there is a little compartment, which I used for small things I'd use on traffic, such as sunglasses or earphones.

    The bag is quite comfortable to carry, but all the weight is carried on your shoulders. So I don't like to carry it for too long when really stuffed (say ~11kg). I probably wouldn't take it as a daypack on longer hikes where I'd have to take extra layers, water, camera etc.

    I have mixed feelings about the kickstand. It generally works very well (less if the bag is almost empty), and is very handy. I use it a lot to put the pack down when waiting for train, bus, boarding. However, I noticed that it caused wear on one of my coats. The problem is that the lower corners of the kickstand stick out a little from the back of the pack, which I think results in more friction with a jacket or coat in those places. I didn't really notice this as uncomfort while using it, but noticed over time on the coat.

    Great bag!
    A great bag for weekend trips or day tours.
    Excellent bult-in stand function. To get a full score it could be good with some rubber bands on the straps to collect loose dangling strap ends.

    Amazing bag, perfect for an active work/life balance
    I absolutely love this bag, my work involves commutes that range from trains, car, bike and walking and the bag is super comfy no matter how I travel. The mesh system genuinely stops me getting sweaty and keeps my laptop away from my back, this has been an annoyance with old bags where you can feel the shape of items in the bag.
    The pockets are all really well thought out with a place for everything, the laptop sleeve feels really secure and well padded and the front pocket has little organisation pockets that work great for my phone, laser measurer, pens etc.
    It feels pretty bombproof, I'm great at destroying things and I'm over a month in and it still looks like new, I guess tie will tell.

    Mostly good
    Lots of good quality materials and good ideas, but unfortunately there's a couple of glaring oversights too. There's a gap in the material above the laptop compartment which is meant for headphones to pop out of i guess, but as someone else commented it's such a stupid placement as if it rains then water could very easily go into the laptop compartment, the very last place you want it to go!! I will try to sow mine up, as I will never use it for headphones as I said bye bye to wires a while ago. Please Osprey, learn from this mistake and don't do this again.

    The back trampoline works and is comfy most of the time, but there's not much depth to it when loaded with a laptop, meaning that if I bend over a bit I will bottom out. It's not affected me badly so far, so maybe I am being too picky on that one?

    Lots of useful compartments. My drinks bottle of strapped nice and tight so i don't worry about it falling off. The weight is pretty light on the back considering how much stuff you can get in it. It looks professional enough in a dark colour (mine is navy).

    I like the kickstand feature. It works well most of the time. I like the quick access laptop compartment.

    Un gran `producto
    Es una mochila que me ha encantado, la considero muy completa. Si que hay cosas que me hubiera gustado que tuviera como un bolsillo pequeño de acceso rápido en el lateral para no tener que quitarse la mochila para sacar las llaver por ejemplo.
    Considero que la malla de la espalda es todo un acierto, para mi que vivo en una ciudad de clima cálido sobretodo en verano he pasado de sudar toda la espalda simepre que iba con la mochila a no sudar apenas, solo por el calor.
    La distribución de los bolsillos es estupenda, yo buscaba una distribución asi. Un bolsillo donde cabe un portatil de 16' y además la tablet en otro bolsillo. Un segundo bolsillo de gran capacidad con un sitio donde poner papeles. El bolsillo donde llevar un montón de "por si a caso"... y el bolsillo delantero que me viene muy bien para llevar cosas de uso puntual como un cubremochilas, porque es uno de los fallos de la mochila, no tiene cubremochilas... Una lluvia ligera es capaz de reistirla sin que cale, pero si es intensa se te va a humedecer mucho la mochila por dentro.
    Una de las cosas que más miedo me daba por como me iba a resultar es la estructura para que se mantenga en pié, y la verdad es que me ha encantado. Para mi una de las cosas diferenciadoras con otras marcas. Me chifla poder poner la mochila en el suelo y que no se caiga. Eso si, a la hora de usar la mochila como equipaje se vuelve una bolsa más rígida de lo que me gustaría, porque esa estructura metálica que lleva le hace ser demasiado alta.
    La verdad es que me parecia que iba ser una mochila más pesada de lo qe es, pero me ha parecido ligera. Se adapta muy bien a la espalda y es fácilmente regulable. El enganchhe de la cadera no lo he usado, pero el de pecho viene muy bien para fijar la mochila y no se balancee cuando vas en bici o necesitas echarte una carrera rápida.
    Los bolsillos laterales son bastantes amplios y cabe perfectamente una botella de más de 1 litro. Las cintas de compresión laterles son bastante útiles, pero me habrñia encantado que se hubieran podido juntar entre ellas por detras, para poder llevar más carga como puede ser una esterilla o un almohada.

    Por último, no se como va a envejecer, pero el único punto que me da más miedo es que las asas de la espalda están cosidas a la malla y no se si se llegará a destensar la malla.

    Es una mochila que me ha encantado y a día de hoy no la cambiaría por ningua otra.

    I really, really wanted to like this.
    While advertised as a jack-of-all-trades, this is a laptop backpack primarily. There is a lot to love about it, but ultimately I'm very disappointed.

    The aesthetics are quite nice. Sadly there is still a bit of a "strap octopus" problem with quite a lot dangling down. It looks way more streamlined in the pictures than in real life.

    Quality of materials is high, but not as impressive as the competition. Much of the bag seems to be 200D nylon when other prestigious brands are rocking 400-1000D. It's definitely good enough, but not exceptional. Buckles are solid.

    Has a kickstand, which is great. That kickstand makes the water bottle holders damn near unusable when the bag is not at full capacity and thr kickstand is bent. In the end, I don't think it's worthwhile execution of a terrific idea.

    The compression straps go over the water bottle holders. While this can be useful for minimizing the overall silhouette, it's very annoying when you just want a drink of water.

    The same compression straps get in the way of the organization pocket, which becomes a pain to get into. Also for some unknown reason, Osprey has decided to only put one zipper on that pocket instead of the two it has on most pockets which aggravates the problem.

    The trampoline back mesh is another great idea but there isn't a very large gap for air to pass through. Also when loaded up, that space becomes smaller still.

    My last point, and a huge part of the reason why I could only give this bag 2 stars, is the headphone pass-through at the top. It's literally a gap in the fabric with a small flap covering it. This goes directly INTO THE LAPTOP COMPARTMENT. That's right, folks. At the very top, where the rain hits directly, is an unsealed gap for water to fall directly into your electronics. What were you thinking, Osprey?

    For the high price, the functionality here should be as solid as the aesthetics. After years of being loyal to this brand, it may be time to consider better options.

    Unglaublich gut
    Dieser Rucksack ist echt ein Phänomen. Es bleibt halt einfach dabei: In Sachen Rucksäcke macht keiner Osprey was vor.

    Ich habe mittlerweile als Rucksack für die Arbeit mit einem, teilweise zwei Laptops diverse Odysseen hinter mir. Zuletzt einen nicht billigen Rucksack einer namhaften schweizer Firma. Dort riss dann irgendwann ein Reißverschluss aus. Nach 1,5 Jahren war er hin. Gleichzeitig hatte ich das Problem, dass der Rucksack zwar riesig war, Dinge fürs Büro aber trotzdem nicht wirklich reinpassten. Irgendwie wirkte immer alles gestopft, gefunden hat man trotzdem nix, und es gab eine große Wühlerei jedesmal.

    Osprey dagegen: Jede Menge schlaue Verstaumöglichkeiten, ein Raumwunder. Er trägt locker zwei Laptops, deren Netzteile (oben, sofort griffbereit), alles was ich sonst noch so brauche im Alltag, von der Maus über diverse Adapter, Kabel bis hin zum Moderationsset. Und es wird noch irrer: Ich habe sogar schon eine HoloLens hineingepackt und hatte immer noch Platz. In keinen mir bekannten Rucksack oder Tasche hat jemals eine HoloLens hineingepasst - Ausnahme Riesen-Rucksäcke oder ganze Reisetaschen. Wie machen die das? Dabei sieht er noch nicht einmal klobig aus!

    Glücklicherweise kann man die Bauchbinde (mehr ist das Hüft-Gürtlein nicht) abnehmen - braucht kein Mensch (ich klettere nicht so häufig überhang...). Der Rucksack steht wie eine eins. Ich kann mir keinen anderen mehr vorstellen. Tablet oder Notebook sind sofort griffbereit, dotzen beim Abstellen nicht auf den Boden.

    Der Tragekomfort: Einzigartig. Da kommt keiner ran. Der Preis ist natürlich abartig. Doppelt so hoch wie andere. Dafür aber dreimal so gut. Ich bereue es nicht und freue mich jeden Tag an diesem Rucksack. Das ist wirklich mal gut investiertes Geld.
