For your pixel-playing devices.
Pack your laptop and tablet into the extremely convenient Pixel Backpack and head out the door. Padded sleeves protect your laptop and tablet, and the main compartment expands and compresses to keep your electronics secure. The Neospacer shoulder harness and spacer mesh Airscape back panel provide the same comfort that Osprey's big backpacks are known for. Osprey added a Powerhouse organizer for your cords, chargers, and other electronic accessories. The Portal organization inside the main compartment was well-thought-out to provide spaces for all your daily accessories. This pack also features document sleeves in the main compartment and a zippered top non-scratch pocket for your smartphone or sunglasses.

Well thought out pack!
I'm a little bit of a backpack-a-holic as I tend to be quite particular with things that I use on a daily basis. After trying out 2 North Face packs (Kaban Transit and Microbyte), I still felt there were things missing. The Pixel Pack is quite honestly perfect - well thought out pockets and organizers, expandable size! and built solid. Ospery knows what they are doing...you can't go wrong with it.
Excellent choice for me!

As a disclosure - this Osprey product is my 5th pack from this company (and I use all of them) so I'm not neutral. Moreover, I've been carrying packs of various types for different purposes for well over a half-century.
This is a relatively simple tech-pack with an amazing low profile even when loaded, which means it carries well without sagging when fully loaded. The ingenious feature that really grew on me was the lime-colored interior. When I look for something in the pack I can see it without the usual fumbling around in a black-lined pack.
I chose the gray herringbone fabric, which is unusual enough that there's never a question about which pack is mine.
The padded grab handle is a great alternative to using the shoulder straps. I typically carry files, a Mac Air, iPad mini, the necessary cables, backup drive and accessories, notepad, mouse, a couple of books, and more. I haven't had to use the extension feature yet. It doesn't have side pockets for a flask or water bottle, so I have relegated the bottom exterior compartment for carrying a small Sigg bottle.
I've had mine for four months and use it almost daily. I'm not gentle, often dropping it into the rear passenger section of my pickup. So far it's holding up great (as have my other Osprey packs, some of which have had hard use in rugged circumstances).
The Holy Grail of packs!

So let me start off by saying that I haven't had a Osprey pack that I don't like. I have the Aura for weekend backpacking trips and the Kode for winter touring. NOW I've added the Pixel to my arsenal of Osprey Packs.
I love this pack. I've been needing a new pack that can handle life of a student that can also be used for work and life in general. This pack does it all. The laptop carry makes it easy to haul around my work laptop. The expandable body is so convenient when I need to carry textbooks around. not to mention the organizer is perfect for carrying USB drives, pencils, sunglasses case and more! The most outer pocket is so nice for quick access to my wallet and cell phone when needed!
This isn't like your ordinary school pack either! The straps are super comfy (padded) and they dry super fast so when you biking or running across campus to get to your next class you don't feel all sweaty and gross.
Did I also mention that they include a powerhouse organizers (separate pouch for cords)! This way you don't have to worry about pesky cords getting all tangled up! This really is the most amazing pack that I have had. It keeps up with my work/school and life! Thank you Osprey for being so innovative and thinking about life in the modern age!
I would highly recommend this for your brand new graduate! or as a gift for your significant other that needs a sleek, comfortable and functional pack!
Does the hipbelt on this pack stow away? Thanks.
Hey Josh! The hip belt is not detachable and the way it's stitched to the bottom of the shoulder straps it's not really "stowable" anywhere. Let me know if you have any other questions or need help finding a new backpack. Thanks!
