Make your getaway.
Pack anything from the essentials to a weekend's worth of cabin-worthy clothes into Osprey's Escapist 32 Backpack and go mountain biking. Its BioStretch harness adjusts the mesh-lined, padded shoulder straps and waist belt for a personalized fit, and the AirScape back panel ensures ventilation. There's an external hydration sleeve for your own reservoir, and a removable rain cover inside the bottom compartment. You can also use the bottom compartment to separate dirty shoes from clean clothes, and there are stretchy pockets at the front and sides to stow water bottles and rain shells. The zippered front pocket is perfect for tool kits, and the zippered top protects your sunglasses while the shoulder pocket stores your smartphone.

- Q & A
Finally found the right one
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After searching, and countless returns, i finally found the backpack that works for me. My trip to Colorado requires me to pack layers, even in summer, so i needed a large backpack that would fit everything i needed: layers, water, first aid, survival items, camera, etc. And this fits the bill just right. I really enjoy the big pocket being split into a bottom and upper level. It's always a pain having to dig around the backpack for items at the bottom and this feature helps eliminate that. I personally put items like the survival kit, first aid kit and other things that i don't use much (hopefully not used at all) but easy enough for it to be accessed quickly if need be. Also great for wet clothes.
Shoulder straps and waist belt are comfortable just like any Osprey backpack. Really great brand.
Plus the backpack is good for multi purposes. Fits most airlines for carry on and has enough space to fit things like a laptop.
Excellent do all daypack
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this for day hikes with my kids, both on foot and on my bike. They have their own little hydration packs, but I still haul the heavy stuff for food, cameras, fishing stuff, 1st aid, etc etc. The bottom pocket fits my Cannon full size DSLR just fine, and the top still has plenty of room for everything else. My only gripe, and this goes for ALL osprey hydration, I don't like their bite valves. There is no cover for them, and they inevitably end up dusty and dirty, which makes drinking less pleasant. They REALLY need to make a cover for it.
Would I be able to carry my laptop in this bag? Looking for something I can take on day trips, and also for other daily activities. Or does Osprey make any daypacks that have a laptop sleeve?
I have this pack and unfortunately it does not have a laptop sleeve but the main compartment can be divided into two separate compartments so if you wanted to pack your laptop, you wont have to worry about it touching the bottom of the pack.
Osprey makes quite a few day packs that have a laptop/tablet sleeve. Search our site with the following item numbers:
You can also follow the link below which will take you to all Osprey packs that feature a laptop sleeve.
I can't find any information on sizing for this pack. It's not listed in the table here or on Osprey's website. What are the recommended torso lengths for each size?
S/M 16"-20" M/L 19"-23" You can download the manual on Osprey's site and it has all the specs.
