Osprey Stratos 26

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by An Absolute Tank I've had this pack for 6 years and it is still is superb condition with only a couple of knicks/scuffs. It's been my day in/day out pack for hikes, climbing, travel and everything in between for over half a decade and is nowhere near it's half life. The two external pockets on the top flap are generously sized and well protected, and the water bottle sleeves are nice and tall with good stretch. These areas of the pack can also be compressed down, or you can readjust the strap to hold down a skinnier water bottle that might be prone to falling out. The main compartment is quite large and accessible (I have the top loader, not the panel loader) and there is more than one place to put a hydration pack. It can go inside the main compartment or it can be suspended in the arched area outside of the pack to make more room inside. It's easy to throw a rain shell or fleece over the top cinch and then strap down the top flap to keep everything in place. Compression straps on this pack are perfect and allow it to keep a very low profile when minimally loaded. There aren't a ton of features on this model but what is there is very functional. The loop and closure system for an axe is easy to use, as is the retention system for trekking poles. The pockets on the waist belt are handy for smaller tools or quick use items, as is the same with the pocket on the right shoulder strap. The integrated rain cover is so well placed you may very well forget it's there. Absolutely zero worries of moisture with the cover properly deployed. Even without the cover this model stands up to a pretty solid amount of weather. I have ZERO complaints about this backpack and have never found myself wishing for a feature that wasn't there. I'll be using my Stratos 26 for another six years, and then another.... 26 March 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb day sack I just spend 2 weeks in Switzerland where I wore this day sack of several hours every day to carry my rainwear, SLR, Gopro, accessories, food and water. The bag is easy to adjust to fit your body and it was supremely comfortable on extended hill walks. It's rear mesh style back system worked very well and kept my back cool on warm/hot days (certainly compared to other day sacks) The shape of the sack makes it very easy to fill and access all of your gear and is better than other well known brands of day sack that I have also owned. The side pockets on the waist band are very useful for smaller, frequently accessed items. The built-in raincover is quick and easy to use and (in a rather fetching lime green) looks good and makes you very visible in poor weather conditions which is an important safety consideration. Build quality appears to be very good indeed. zero problems with any of the 3 Osprey day sacks that we have in the family. 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This rucksack is super comfortable and light Great value rucksack with lots of room and a range of different pockets / straps / attachments for holding anything from water bottles to ice axes! Lightweight and very comfortable frame. Has been up and down volcanoes and was great. 16 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great backpack This is what everyone should be using, no more sweaty back due to the excellent venting. It's so lightweight and comfortable to wear. With the addition of the 3 litre water pack makes it even better because I haven't got to carry any water bottles. Result! 09 June 2014
