Was expecting more.
Some background info: I’m a 165 cm woman with a sneaking suspicion I have a short back. I wanted a backpack for all around use, from gym clothes and lunch box, to day hikes, to weekend trips with light packing. This was good in many regards, eg good size, light, packable when not in use and smaller compartments to organize. The things I didn’t like as much was, as someone mentioned above, that it won't stand on its own. I’ve hade other backpacks without frames that did this. The sloping bottom also makes it inconvenient to pack efficiently if you have a pair of gym shoes in there. My main problem though was the handle on top. Since its integrated in the shoulder straps it can’t be removed or changed. It dug into my neck and chafed. If I were to lower the pack it would go even more against my lower back and upper bottom, which it already did. All in all I ended up looking for another back pack. Hopefully I have found one in another Osprey pack.
It's a good all-round bag
I found it comfy for day-hikes, cycling, excellent for travelling, fits nicely under the seat on planes, a nice pocket for laptop/ipad, lots of room in the main compartment but tidy enough so you don't cart around lots of extra crap.
Great bag for running/commuting
I run around 2 miles with a 15.6" laptop and a change of clothes (including shoes). It all fits in this bag and the straps make the weight feel fine to carry. When I'm not carrying so much stuff the compression straps make the whole bag shrink down so you don't feel like you're carrying a massive bag full of nothing. Would definitely recommend for commuters on the run.
Good bag but... I would also change a few things
I recently bought this bag, mostly for work as I decided I could do with more pockets than my previous bag. The side pockets are now tall enough for water bottles (e.g. camelback) which is great, and the various pockets and sections mean I can organise all my stuff better than I could in my previous bag which just had one big section.
Two things that would make it even better. 1) having the side pockets more like the Talon/Tempest range where you can tighten them if needed. That would be really handy. 2) inside the main section a small "security" pocket would be handy, though not essential I suppose - like there is on the Talon 11 .
Otherwise, I like it and can see it being very handy for work.
I really enjoy using the Daylite Plus, and it is one of the most comfortable backpacks I have ever used. Organisation system is spot on, but i would change two things about it, first of which being the bottle holders on the sides. I feel my bottles will tumble out of them, maybe if it would be tighter it wouldn't be a problem, but right now it really bothers me. Second is the balance of the bag. I need to lean it against something when I put it down, now, this may not be a deal breaker for most, but for me it is very bothersome, the bag won't stand on its own, and for someone who uses the bag in everyday scenarios, as well as hiking and dog walking, I would really appreciate a solution to this.
Regardless, I am very unlikely to change it to another contender, and I would recommend it regardless.
Brilliant backpack, good for daily use
I am very happy with this backpack, I use it every day, it has far more capacity than I expected, like the Tardis. When my wife borrowed it she commented that she forgot she was wearing it even though it had quite a heavy load. A pity that I can't fit a bike helmet and rear light to it, which I can on the Momentum. The side pockets are now big enough for a medium-sized water bottle. Like another reviewer I would prefer this backpack to be able to stand upright.
best daypack ive ever owned, you dont sweat and it can carry heavy loads with comfort. Briiant support straps too
Great day pack
This is the first Osprey pack I have purchased. It won't be the last. It's great. I always put a dry bag in the main sack and bin everything in there. The small zippy pouch gets a 2 litre dry bag for my pipe, baccy and a small first aid kit. Gets used all day every day on weekend hikes and weekdays for commuting to work. Just the right size. Well done Osprey, a well thought out piece of kit. Now to save up for a bigger bag for longer expeditions.
Excellent sac du quotidien
J'utilise le sac au quotidien (pas du tout en rando donc). Il est particulièrement pratique : il accueille un ordinateur 13', son volume est facilement réglable avec les sangles (il peut donc être compact), l'aération est un un vrai plus pour le confort, et (comme les autres sacs de la marque) il est confortable à porter (ce qui est dedans devient plus léger !). Bref, bel investissement :-)
Parfait pour des randonnées de journee
Ce petit sac m’accopagne sur des randonnées courtes. Pratique avec ses multiples poches et les filets de côté, il est tout à fait remarquable. Le prix est élevé mais il les vaut sans problème. Le filet au dos permet une bonne ventilation, le réglage des sangles est aussi facile que pour les sacs de plus grand volume
