I really love this thing!
Out of my collection of lumbar packs, this is the one that I instinctively reach for, whether heading out for a quick jaunt in the canyons near my house with my pup, or longer day treks that don't require much space for clothing or gear. I've been using this thing at least four times a week for almost 2 years and still looks & works like new!
The fit is great, and it can be locked down snugly so nothing flops around when the going gets jiggly.
There is an amazing amount of smart engineering put into this seemingly simple device.
Thanks to the Airscape back and side panels (which hold the pack off your body with a combination of curved semi-rigid frame sheet, highly dimensional, perforated foam pads and soft netting)it stays cool on my lower back and rides like there's nothing there.
In addition to the sophisticated suspension, nice touches abound, like the substantial, reflective talon graphics;
waist strap adjuster keepers (keeping the straps readily at hand and preventing them from whipping around);
foam reinforced bottle pockets (never collapse, so it's easy to re-holster the H2O while on the move);
Osprey's excellent, easy grab zipper pulls.
