Go light on summit day.

Increase your Osprey backpack’s gear-toting capabilities with the Osprey Daylite Backpack Attachment. The Daylite firmly affixes to all Osprey ‘Add-On’-compatible packs and then detaches when you need a lightweight and comfortable daypack for a summit push or a stroll around town. The rigid-foam back panel is covered in mesh and features a central air chimney to help circulate air behind your back, and an ice-axe loop totes your axe until you need to set an anchor or travel across a snowfield with a sketchy run-out.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It has pockets for days, perfect for organizing my things on the go. I've taken it on several hikes and it still looks brand new. I could see this lasting me for years.

    Where ever your adventures may take you, I highly recommend adding the Day Lite to your packing list. Recently acquired one and initially only planned to use it for light day hikes, but I loaded in a 3L reservoir and hit the trails in Moab. The weight carries really nicely, the chest and waist strap keep it from moving around. There are a few useful organizational pockets on the inside, and the waist straps are removable. A super light pack with room for extra tubes and rain coats. No surprise,another favorable review for the Day Lite.

      Perfect Pack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I liked the first pack I purchased so much that I have bought a second to give as a gift to my aunt who is a big hiker and traveler. As an all around day pack this is perfect and easy to put in your luggage when headed on a trip for any day excursions.

      Perfect Little Day Pack

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      If you are looking for a great day pack that is versatile for use around town, but perfect as well for any day hiking adventure this is the pack for you. Although small in volume, it can honestly fit quite a bit of gear. I load mine up with some snacks for hiking, water, clothing layer, sunscreen, camera, phone, and keys. Two exterior pockets offer additional storage to the pack.

      All around good pack!

        I use this pack for day hiking around Southern California. It is big enough to hold anything I need and compresses quite nicely when not fully loaded. I like the external sleeve for the hydration system. I have always been a tad paranoid about putting water in with my pack so this system works great for me. You do have to adjust the pack as you drink water from the bladder, but it's really not a huge hassle. The compression straps are a bit funky, I wish they had a clip or something. The cinch cord comes in very handy for a jacket, map, or sleeping pad. This pack could even sustain a true minimalist over a night or two where bear can are not required.

        I have seen this used as an add on for the Aether series. It looks a bit awkward, but it seems to attach nicely and stay secure to your main pack. Definitely a good attachment if you are doing a lot of base camping or peak bagging. I won't be using it as an attachment because I can fit 10 days worth of stuff into my Kestrel no problem but I can see it's uses for this purpose.

        I am looking for a durable, but lightweight pack that has a bit of extra space when/if needed. When we travel, I need to carry about 15 pounds for 4-7 days at a time. This sounds simple, but I have a chronic pain disorder (that will never stop me, but I have to work around a bit). I am trying to find a pack that is VERY comfortable, especially around the neck/shoulder/upper back area. Do you know if anyone has any experience carrying this pack with a lot of weight for several days (that would probably be the equivalent to me carrying it fairly lightweight for just a few days)? Also, I must be overlooking it, but what are the dimensions? I am fairly petite, and since I need to try to limit the weight I carry, it doesn't need to be huge - that's why I am looking at daypacks. Is there a better option?

        First of all, I like your name! Sorry for the delay in this answer. This pack is great, but if you you really are dealing with a pain issue, you might want to consider a pack with more suspension. The Daylite is great for lighter weights, but again, if you have pain, then go with something that has more built in comfort and is sizes for you. You mentioned you were petite. Do you have a short torso or a long torso? Regardless, if you look at the Tempest 9 0r Tempest 20, Osprey has 2 sizes for women. I think this will be a better choice for you.

        Happy New Year!


        Osprey Rep

        I am searching for a daypack for my large husband. 50" chest, 40" waist, big belly. I want him to be comfortable so I can get him out more. I don't really want to spend for a custom fit right now. I have heard Osprey packs are good for larger men. Is this pack a good option, or any suggestions?

        I purchased a Osprey backpack in 2004 or 05. The backpack was black and cost around $100 to $115 . The backpack has been stolen and I need info to give to my claim adjuster. Can you give me any info on posible model and the replacement model. Thanks

        Will this fit a nice DSLR?

        We are going to Europe and I'd like a pack that can secure a camera and have a water bladder!

        Will this pack be able to hold a DSLR with a large lens (D7000 + 18-300mm) along with some water? Thanks!

        I'd say it will fit, but it will be tight. I think the D7000 has the smaller "pro-sumer" body style, but that super zoom will be chunky if you leave the hood attached.

        I think what you'll find is that the amount of water you carry will dramatically affect how easy it is to get the camera in and out.

        Has anyone ever tried using multiple Addons at once? Like they Crampon Addon, with the Daypack Addon?

        Best Answer

        I haven't tried it but if you watch the video below you will find that they both attach the same way so there wouldn't be room for both if them. The only way I think it would be possible is if the daylite had the addon loops and you attached the crampon pack to that. You could try it but I highly doubt it would work

        Hey there. Kinda confused. Description says pack attachment. Is this a backpack or isnt it?

        hi all, could someone please comment on...

        hi all, could someone please comment on the inside arrangement? so there's the main compartment. is there any mesh paneling in the main compartment? any smaller pockets? and then there's the front zippered pocket? is it deep - running down the entire length of the bag? and does it have any smaller, paneled pockets?

        while i don't have a lot to carry, i like keeping the various small things organized. lastly, does this bag keeps its shape when not filled?


        Hey there! The main compartment doesn't have andy other pockets in it, but it does have plenty of space inside. Although if you need to get to the bottom of the pack it is slightly inconvenient but not too bad. The front zippered pocket is not very deep, maybe 1/2 to a 1/3 the length of the bag. It does have 2 mesh side pockets and the rip cords can hold items as well. I have found this pack perfectly adequate for long day hikes and I imagine it can be used for an ultralight overnight as well. i also like the idea of the water reservoir being separate from my gear on the inside.

        Will this pack hold a 3L reservoir?
