Gear Review

5 5

Very nice!

Good streamlined day pack. Could be used overnight in summer with the right gear(See my upload). Bladder system is amazing, slides in easy even when full. Bite valve seems pretty loose and I think it will leak, hopefully not bad. Light pack with a bunch of pockets on the outside and even an integrated rain cover that comes out of the bottom. Pretty expensive but considering it has a top notch hydration system and rain cover, I don't mind paying that much for osprey. Very happy with the purchase, I have no doubts that the manta will be my go to day pack.

Just wondering, what is your back length and what size did you get?

Hey Stephen did the bite valve or any other part of the hydration leak? Please advise.

Sorry for the slow response. You probably no longer need an answer, but I will give it anyways. The bite valve did leak, but you can turn it at a 45 degree angle when not in use and it will rarely leak after that. Kind of a hassle though. No Idea on my back length. I am 5'11"-6' and the M/L fits great. I would say anyone over 5'9.5" should be getting the m/l.
