Awesome backpack only one thing
This is one of my favourite backpacks, it replaces a old custom bag i had before and this basically has everything that one had and a bit more.
One design choice i question however is the hip strap; I struggle with the reason they included it at the thickness it has, hip straps in my experience are to offload weight when you're carrying a heavy backpack.
Where this hip strap fails is that it's not in proportion to the size of the sack.
It is way too slim for the amount of weight you can expect to be carrying in it, as i use it everyday it is very noticeable how much the slim hip strap dig into then gut and body in general and gradually slides down.
Whit this size of sack one should go for a wider strap at a minimum 3-4cm wide that grips more evenly. I might just modify my sack myself as everything else has performed above expectations.
Otherwise Osprey are among the top backpack designer and i am looking forward to seeing how they progress! :)
Everything you need
I love this bag ! I use it everyday for my commute to work and also on the weekends when on long walks and hikes. It’s got every pocket you could think of that you would need. The only slight negative I could think of is that front pocket only has one zip unlike the other pockets which have two on for easier access while on the go. Not a major problem. I carry 2 tablets and 2 phones with me to work and also clothing etc and the back doesn’t feel too bulky. The chest and hip clips are handy and make it more comfortable when carrying heavier loads. Would definitely recommend !
Amazing all-around backpack
Amazing bag. Clearly shows a lot of thought has been put into how to design compartments. I recently took it to a trip and I was amazed at how much I could pack into it (including 2 laptops on the laptop sleeve, a full change of clothes, headset, umbrella, chargers, bottle and even a jacket could fit in at the same time alongside smaller stuff) and it was still comfy to carry around. My only comment would be that the outer pocket doesn't have a double zipper so it only opens one-way. Other than that, it's an amazing all-around bag to use from work, to travelling, to hiking. The pictures on this site don't do the colors justice, so I would suggest you have a look at another picture/video if possible to get an idea of how awesome this thing really looks. Make sure to get a waterproof cover for it if you are worried about your equipment during heavy rain since there is an opening right above the laptop sleeve to pass cables through, but it looks safe in light conditions or coupled with an umbrella.
This is definitely a quality product that deserves my recommendation and I can only hope that it lasts me for a long time because I am absolutely loving it so far.
Good quality backpack
So far the best backpack i've ever had. This is huge upgrade from my previous Samsonite GuardIt backpack. A lot more space, more compartments and overall better build quality.
A brilliant bag, really comfortable even at full load. The top pocket is great for a wash bag when travelling although I would love an additional discreet top pocket near the top handle for a wallet etc. Good amount of space for a night or two away. I just wish osprey could make a bag exactly like this but in the 40-50 litre range!
Guess who's the best
I've been using this pack (the older version) for more than a year now and I'm still glad I bought it. Although I had the same problems with the zipp cords as Sam wrote on 30 july, the cords come off. I solved this with a slightly thicker cord, they didn't come off since then.
I have 3 more Osprey packs for different purposes and some packs from other brands. Guess which are the best...
Best Pack I Have Ever Had
I bought the older version - the Nebula 34, in march 2019. I have loved it so much that i am writing this review right now, which I almost never do. From a person who always saves up for quality products, I was expecting a quality product. Still I was surprised by just how much better this pack was compared to my prior Eastpack one. If Osprey keeps up this quality and service, there is no way im ever owning a pack from another brand. Simply well done Osprey, couldn't be happier.
Great bag for work
As someone who's works from home, the office and also works from mobile areas, this bag is perfect. It holds my laptop, charger and headset, with specific pockets for large amounts of paperwork, while also leaving space for my lunch and gym wear.
The bag can fit so much in it without looking ridiculously packed on your back, and can be easily organised so everything is easy to get to.
I also used this bag as my carryon and used it daily on my holiday with no complaints. I only wish it came with a waterproof sheet!
Great bag, terrible zip pulls
This bag has been awesome, had it for over a year now and it's comfortable, easy to adjust and has a large capacity.
My only complaint about this bag is the zip pulls which are cord. The cords constantly come off the zip and need to be reattached. This only happens when I pull them so never lost one but it's extremely frustrating when trying to zip up the bag in a hurry. The problem is that the cord fits through the back of the zipper opening so unless you apply all the force in the opposite direction the cord slips and slides out the the back of the zip. I don't understand why this zip pull was chosen.
Nach einem Jahr fallen einem die Schwachstellen auf
Über die Qualität kann ich bisher nichts sagen. Daran habe ich aber auch nie gezweifelt.
Ich habe den Nebula ein paar Monate als Fahrrad-Rucksack benutzt. (Laptop, Kleinkram, Jacke, Getränke, …)
Das er dafür nicht ideal ist wusste ich, auf Grund der Rückenpolsterung. Ging trotzdem ganz gut.
Seit einigen Wochen verwende ich ihn sehr häufig zu Fuß. Bei dem schönen Wetter habe ich oft nur wenig dafür schwere Gegenstände im Hauptfach. (Buch, Essen, Getränke, …) Ab und zu mit Laptop im hinteren Fach.
Das Problem ist nun, das die schweren Gegenstände den weichen Stoff nach unten ziehen und das Hauptfach durchhängt. Der Boden könnte also aus einem stärkeren Material sein als der Rest. Dann könnte das Problem behoben werden. Vielleicht ist es ein Luxusproblem, mich stört es aber ziemlich.
Die Netztaschen für die Getränke sind nicht geeignet für 0,5 l Glasflaschen. Die zusätzlichen Sicherungen sind nämlich zu weit oben angebracht und die Netze nicht hoch genug für die schweren Flaschen. Mir sind schon mehrere Flaschen (z.B. Club Mate) beim schwungvollen Ausziehen runtergeknallt.
Wer den Rucksack täglich nutzen will, sollte sich ein Regencover kaufen. Hatte neulich den nassen Schirm in der Netztasche und innen war alles nass. Bei stärkerem Regen kann der komplette Rucksack nass werden.
Wenn das Laptopfach mit dem RV oben mittig geschlossen wurde, ist es mir schon zweimal passiert, das die RV aufgingen und das Hauptfach nach unten in meinen Kniekehlen hing. Glücklicherweise ist nie was passiert.
Bei dem vorderen Fach (für Kleinzeug) wäre es wünschenswert, wenn der RV seitlich weiter nach unten gehen würde. Momentan endet es immer in einer Wühlerei in Kleinkram.
Ansonsten ein vernünftiger Rucksack. Vor allem auch in dieser Preiskategorie.
