‘All the usual Osprey excellence in build and features with a taut ventilated back system makes this an excellent all-day hiking pack that’s even up for light packing if you choose’
Outdoors Magic: Build quality, pockets, easy access to main compartment, taut ventilated back system, proper belt pockets, ace trekking pole stowage, adjustable back length, super supportive.
Outdoors Tragic: We found the prominent seams on the suspended mesh panel dug in slightly, so try for fit before buying. Mesh pocket long-term durability question mark.
Outdoors Grabbit? The latest Stratos combines the back and hip-belt mesh fabrics for a super supportive wrap-around fit. Taut, cool, suspended trampoline mesh copes well with medium to heavy loads and there are billions of pockets plus easy access to the main compartment via a whopping zip. The back is adjustable for length too. It’s an excellent pack, but the one issue we had was with the taut seam of the back panel pressing slightly against our back. For that reason, we’d suggest trying before buying. If it fits you, it’s a great pack.
