Osprey goes to school

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Originally Osprey had been passed over for 'kids' backpacks' which turned out to be way too small for my two boys. Backcountry customer service were beyond helpful and the return process was simple.

When the two replacement Osprey Packs Quasar Backpacks arrived the boys were too excited. The colors are great, easy to tell the two boys apart from a distance! They hold all their school stuff, including the lunchbox, without being bulky. The older one uses the organizing pockets to his advantage and the younger one enjoys squirreling bits and bobs in the various pockets.

The fit? Perfect. And my boys are on the small side. The packs sit very well on small shoulders and the sternum strap helps keep the shoulder straps from sliding off slippery coat fabrics. The water bottle pockets are generous which makes it possible to run to school without the bottles flying out. They've even learned to hang their spare sweatshirts on the outside! Maybe it's time to hit the trails? Me in my 1996 Osprey and them in their 2015 Osprey packs.

Daniel, thank you for taking the time to write! I just moved my son (11) from an Osprey kids pack (the Pogo) to the Comet, very similar to the Quasar. He is beyond psyched! These kids have so much crap, and this pack is perfect for him. Thank you for keeping Osprey in the family!

Desert color on website is inaccurate

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

I can't really comment on the performance of this day pack, as I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet.

I wanted to write this review to let everyone know that the Desert color is much lighter than thepicture on the Backcountry website.

The actual color is much closer to a light color sand, which would make sense, seeing as the color is named Desert.



    I use this everyday for carrying my laptop, papers, extra winter layer, pencils, etc... It's an urban oriented pack with a bunch of the great features and the quality associated with Osprey outdoor oriented packs.


    Just what I needed for school

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This is a great pack, and like any Osprey, it comes with a bunch of features I didn't know I needed! Tons of pockets that are great for accessibility and organizing.

    It fits my 17" laptop just fine, which is great for such a large screen.


    Great For College

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The sleeves on the inside are great for files, books, or a laptop. The big pocket is also big enough to put enough stuff for a day hike in Glacier national park or for class on a monday. Comfortable on long hikes, water resistant if you keep the flaps over the zippers, and the adjustable elastic straps come in handy for some of the weird things. Overall, a radical and durable backpack
