Tropos 32

Tropos is a top-of-the-range daypack designed for active everyday use. 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 stays 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.

Key Features

  • Integrated kickstand keeps pack upright and accessible
  • AirSpeed™ trampoline suspended mesh backsystem
  • Padded laptop and tablet sleeve with direct zip access
  • Reflective graphics
  • Vertical centred zippered pocket
  • LED light attachment point

No, just go for the Nebula instead
I had just ordered the Nebula and was drawn to an ad about Tropos because of the kickstand (no more bag tipping over or trying to lean it into something) and the mesh-back of the Tropos while still maintaining what appeared to be all the great other features of the Nebula. So I switched them around through Osprey's excellent return policy. How I regret that decision. The Kickstand works, but it's not 'simply-put-down-our-bag-works'. You need to angle it just right so the lever is pressed so it stands, but that takes a bit of fiddling almost every time and the last thing you need while traveling is fiddling with a gimmick on your bag. Furthermore, the mesh back sounds great but it comes at a huge expense: the curve of the back arches into the bag space. This means that the back pocket and even the main pocket has a curved bulge into it (and my laptop happens to be quite flat), making packing extremely annoying. Now you can cram a laptop in a packed bag still but that only straightens the curve so that the mesh ends up touching the back of the pack anyways, removing the main benefit of the mesh (and your back) not being in contact with the bag. To add insult to injury, the Nebula has a very square and flat footprint that works basically as a stand. If you pack your bag normally, the Nebula actually ends up sitting up straight out of itself and no fiddling with the bag needed and no tipping over of the bag.

If you want a proper mesh back, you need a larger pack that can accommodate the curve of the back arches. If you hate a bag falling over, working this bag's kickstand will make you mess around with your bag just as long as it takes you to angle your bag against a chair leg.

Stay away from this bag, grab the Nebula. All form and gimmick, no substance. I own 3 other Osprey bags so I am quite disappointed by their effort here and regret the switch, so learn from my mistake.

Hi Do,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Tropos 32.

We are very sorry to hear that you have been disappointed by the pack, particularly its Kickstand and AirSpeed backsystem.

The Kickstand should not need to be adjusted each time it is placed on the floor, as the frame is designed to stand up unassisted immediately. If you have found that your Tropos is not working in this way, we would recommend contacting our Guarantee Team who will be able to look into this for you.

Our AirSpeed backsystem has been designed to ensure great ventialtion for the user. This backsystem does have a curved shape, which will mean the main compartment is also slightly curved. We will ensure your feedback on the frustration this has caused you when packing your laptop, is passed back to our Design Team.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

Cooler Rucksack mit Denkfehlern
Habe den Tropos jetzt seit ein paar Wochen in Benutzung, und bin immer wieder aufs neue Begeistert. Die Aufteilung ist super, das Laptopfach auch bei prallem Rucksack noch gut nutzbar, und der Tragekomfort...genial. Auch dass die großen 1L Nalgene Flaschen in die Flaschenhalterun außen passen, funktioniert noch nicht bei jedem Rucksack...hier schon.
Allerdings gibt es auch ein paar Ecken, wo man den Eindruck hat, dass der Produktentwickler statt die Idee fertig zu denken lieber Feierabend gemacht hat. Ein paar Beispiele:

Der Hüftgurt ist ca. 2cm breit...nutzen geht gegen null, last auf die Hüften verteilen kann das jedenfalls nicht. Maximal noch in verrutschen auf dem Rad verhindern.
Der Rucksack hat eine Durchführung und Schlaufen an den trägern für eine Wasserblase. Die Möglichkeit diese im Rucksack aufzuhängen ist aber nicht gegeben. Dann hätte man in meinen Augen auch keine Druchführung für den Schlauch gebraucht, oder hat das Loch im Rucksack eine andere Bedeutung?
Am Rücken befindet sich ein Reisverschluss, dessen Funktion sich mir noch nicht erschlossen hat...
Wenn der Rucksak ziemlich leer ist (Nur ein Collegeblock und ein paar Stifte) dann klappt der Kickstand ein, und der Rucksack fällt um.
Außerdem hängt der Boden bei voller bepackung unterhalb des Kickstands...die Folge ist auch wieder, der Rucksack kippt um.

Alles in allem finde ich 150€ für einen Alltagsrucksack viel Geld. Ich habe es aber nicht bereut, etwas mehr Geld in die hand zu nehmen.

Hi Philipp,


Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Tropos 32.


It is great to hear that you have been pleased with the layout of the pack and that it is well suited for the functionality intended.


We appreciate that you have pinpointed some areas of improvement, and these have been passed to our Design Team as we are constantly looking for ways to improve our products.


The Tropos has not been designed to hold a reservoir, the feed through hole and loops are there for a headphone jack to prevent it from moving when on the go.


The Access Zip in the backsystem of the pack that you are referring to is not there for consumer use. This zip is used to apply tension to the backsystem of the pack during production and should not be tampered with (hence the zip-pull being reversed to prevent it being easily opened).


When empty, the pack should still remain upright, we would recommend ensuring that the frame of the pack is fully opened, as this should resolve this problem.
