Awesome so far
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Love this pack so far. Have been using it for school, bike rides, and miscellaneous schlepping. Straps are very comfortable, nicely adjustable straps, and overall good storage. I would say that i have had trouble fitting things of significant size into the front mesh pocket (no jacket, no lunchbox, no shoes) but maybe that was a misjudgment on my part. It is useful for quickly tossing things in. Love the side mesh and side zip pockets. Overall outstanding pack.

I'm debating between the Quantum and the Comet. Has anyone used this bag as a carry-on? How do the size differences between the two work out?
I hav not used these 2 specifically but by the size and what I use as a carry-on this would probably be a awesome carry-on! I have seen a comet and if you are using it more for school I would go with the quantum and not the comet but if you are going for a day pack, go with the comet! Hope this helps you!

Bought this for my girl friend for her birthday. She loves it!

I wear this is as a day pack to hike 14'er and to travel with for work (with a laptop). It's very versatile and because it's light weight and is a good size (not too big, not too small). I will say, my one knock, after several months of use, a couple of the plastic clips have broken and are no longer functional, but I still love this bag regardless.
One of the best day packs that I've ever owned
This is the best backpack Ive ever owned. Enough said. If it fits your requirements then you will love it.
Like all of the other packs by Osprey the Quantum is amazing. I use it as my everyday back pack at the university. I saw a little contradiction in the comments in whether or not it can hold a 1 Liter Nalgene. I just wanted to conform that it absolutely can with no problems what so ever.

Hey can this pack hold a hydro-bladder?...
Hey can this pack hold a hydro-bladder? I'm sure someone has asked this before but thought I would drop the question again.
Basically, but it wouldn't be ideal. The laptop sleeve could hold a bladder, but there is no hook to hang the bladder from. Also, the exit port is at the center of the top of the pack, not at the side, so routing the tube could be a little awkward. It's just not really designed for it.
I've put a 3L Osprey Bladder in the sleeve and it worked just fine. The Osprey Bladder has it's own support system not needing to hang...You'll probably/maybe need to change out the mouth piece on the tube to make routing easier then again maybe not. I've also used a 32oz Nalgene bottle in the side pocket, it all depends how you pack your Quantum. Less on the inside,more on the outside, more on the inside, less on the outside....

Anyone succeeded in securely stashing a bike helmet in the back stretch pocket?
It isn't big enough for a bike helmet. The stretch pocket really isn't very large and can't hold much more than a small book or two or a shirt or something of similar size.
I've been able to put a poncho into the pocket(Folded) and another time a set of knee pads with four packets of hand warmers and also at another time a climbing rope 40' long rolled up.. NOT ALL AT THE SAME TIME.. Just an idea of what the mesh stretch pocket can be used for....Way to small for a helmet....
Awesome for nursing school or hiking!
I absolutely love this backpack. I had been looking for a new backpack for over a year and could never bring myself to spend the money on one in case I didn't like it. I finally stumbled across this one and talked to a very helpful person who told me all about it. My biggest concern was it being spacious enough for all of my books. I'm in nursing school and have to tote around anywhere from 1 binder to 4 textbooks and 2 binders. This backpack carries it all and stays comfortable while doing it. I have to say it is absolutely amazing for all of my needs. On another awesome note, the waterpack pouch doubles as an awesome laptop sleeve that fits my 13" macbook pro perfectly and even leaves space. Just when you think it can't fit any more stuff, there is an outside pouch that stretches to hold my planner, drug book (which is pretty thick), and even a snack. And the side pouches stretch big enough to hold a nalgene. All in all this backpack rocks and I would suggest it to anybody. One last thing, I am an avid hiker and this pack doubles as a great daypack. Most importantly besides it keeping your back comfortable, it has this awesome foam layer that doesn't make your back sweat like normal bags. Once again, can't praise this pack enough. And I'm 5'5" and about 135 lbs. and it isn't bulky on me at all!!
A bit pricey, but a great backpack!
Okay, honestly I was a little disappointed when I first got this pack in the mail. For the price I expected cushier, thicker shoulder straps compared to what is there, and other small amenities that other packs seem to have. After a few days, however, I found there are ways to customize how the pack rides on your back by adjusting certain straps, and this made it so cushier straps weren't necessary. After a week the pack grew on me even more, both in style and utility. I use it primarily for school and can fit a 15" laptop, four spiral notebooks, textbook, iPad, and there is room to spare. All in all I would say this is a great pack, would give it five stars if it wasn't quite as expensive.
are the colors in the pictures true to the...
are the colors in the pictures true to the actual color? i have run into problems with that before.
Hey Jason, yeah this pack is pretty true to color, definitely not bright...
It really varies. I've found a couple packs that I've ordered looked slightly darker or lighter than pictured. Either way I was still happy with the product.
There are slight differences with the colors depending on what computer you're on, but in general, the colors seen here are not brighter than these picture--if anything they are a touch deeper in tone. So a deeper mustard color, a deeper blue color, and a deeper forest green color.
I have the yellow one, and it's pretty true to the picture on the website. Perhaps a touch darker.
Great school or daypack
I bought this pack to use around school and maybe the occasional day trip. It works perfectly. It has plenty of space, and the laptop sleeve is a great bonus. It also is very durable, and even then Osprey's great warranty means I'm not worried about durability at all. Another great pack from Osprey. The only thing I should point out is that its bottle pockets cannot hold full size 32oz nalgene bottles. Not that this is unusual for a pack this size, but it's worth pointing out. The hip belt is not very substantial, but for my use that's not a problem. Overall a great pack that I look forward to using for years to come.
I grabbed this pack specifically to use on campus. Its got a laptop sleeve, mp3 sleeve and it well sized. It can double as a hiking pack - it has basic waist straps and a chest strap too. and it will work as a hydration. a great buy over all
This pack can carry a Osprey 3L hydration bladder, poncho, trekking poles, climbing rope and still have room for other items.. All-n-all, a out standing pack, other pockets well thought out. Its a keeper, a addition to my other Osprey gear. Shipping was fast, thank you all, job well done...
