Perfect pack for longer mountain bike tr

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The straps are great, the comfort level is great, the pockets and buckles are great, and the big 1000z water bladder is great. This is just about the perfect pack for longer distance (over 2 hours) mountain bike trips. Helmet clip is a neat addition. I will use this for light day hiking trips as well as it holds a ton of stuff for the size. I can even toss my running shoes in if i want to do a brick workout and do some trail running after/during my ride. The only wonky thing is the magnet that attaches the mouth piece to your chest. It is difficult to put on when you are on a trial and better suited for using on an easier stretch of trail as it requires one hand off the handlebars to accomplish.

My Favorite Hydration Pack Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pack strikes that perfect balance of having tons of useful features but nothing frivolous or obtrusive. It's durable but lightweight.

The rigid bladder might seem like a waste of weight at first glance but the more you use it the more you'll wish your current bladders had always had this feature.

The magnetic bite valve is brilliant for mountain biking, everyone who sees it in action wishes their pack had it and there's no way I could go back to having a manual style clip in again.

I seldom use the "Lid Lock" feature, and I wouldn't miss it if it was gone but like most of the features on this pack it's so unobtrusive it's never bothered me or gotten in my way.

Mine is the previous years model than the one being sold here but I'm sure it's an even better pack now. I actually owned an even older Raptor 6 which I loved very much for summer riding, unfortunately it was very very small and couldn't hold even an extra layer. When I bought the 14 I thought I would use it for shoulder season rides and keep my 6 for summer rides. The 14 cinches down so seamlessly that it wasn't even worth it to transfer my gear over to the 6 so I just kept riding on the 14 all year round and gave my other pack to a buddy who really wanted the magnetic bite valve feature.

You really can't go wrong with this pack, getting the 14 over a smaller size is the way to go even if you don't think you need the space you really have nothing to lose.

Great pack for serious trail riders!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Thoroughly evaluated this pack before making purchase. Was convinced it would be a great fit for me and not disappointed. This Osprey pack replaced my Camelback. No comparison! The Osprey design, quality and lifetime guarantee made it an easy choice. Plenty of room to carry everything I need for an all day ride.

so long, camelbak

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Obviously, CamelBak has become quite the household name, everyone has one or knows what they are, even if they call it a "CamelPak." We all know them. But there are several things that I don't think CamelBak does well, or could do better. First, the bladders are nearly impossible to manage when filling with water and trying to close. They flop all over the place, spill water, and just aren't friendly. Couple that with the fact that they have no structure to them, and you find them wadded up in the bottom of your pack, especially if you just use the bladder without the pack. All of that was bearable, several years ago, when the only other options were some crappy water pack from Target. The thing that really turned me off of CamelBak was the design of the packs that the bladders went in. They just weren't good. They were too small, or if they were big enough, too expensive, and had dumb suspension systems, or not enough pockets, or (heaven forbid) just didn't look cool at all.

Now, several years later, other companies have tried their hand at the hydration pack and Osprey/Nalgene have, in my opinion, beat CamelBak. First, the bladder is excellent. It has a handle for holding when filling, is rigid, so it doesn't get all wadded up in the bottom of your pack, and it fits PERFECTLY in the rigid slot in the pack. The valve is a joy to use, although the CamelBak one is just as good. Everything just seems to work, with the exception of screwing the lid on, as others have stated. It's a bit difficult, but one mishap and spilled water fixes that, you just double check it.
But the real attraction to this pack is that a company dedicated to pack design, Osprey, makes the pack. The Raptor 14 is great. Tons of pockets, super comfortable, enough space and features to make it great, and it looks really good. I don't feel dumb wearing it, as I do with CamelBak. Again, just my opinion, but these are way better in almost every way.

Right! And, some folk seem to be weary of getting the larger '14', but these packs can be tightened/cinched down when not fully loaded, and so don't look bulky at all! Your right about that lid...holding the plastic hinge while turning the cap helps a lot.
Another thing great about the wide 'mouth' of the bladder is that, in a hurry, you can actually fill it while it's in the pack still (with a little practice, there's no mishaps). Love Osprey!

GRUNGE was Great...

GRUNGE was Great...

...but not in your hydration bladder!
Get the gunk out...and keep it out with this system specifically fit for Osprey bladders.



And don't forget to "wash your bladder"! Osprey's cleaning/drying system. Well worth it for funk-free H2O!

Love it. So convenient if you're stopping somewhere en route and don't want to be cumbered having to carry your helmet & your pack, too!

Oprey's "Lid-Lock"

Oprey's "Lid-Lock"

Adjustable elastic band accommodates any size helmet; shown here is a 'M' *Specialized S-Works Prevail that fits with no problem. Easily attaches/removes.
You can locate the band adjustment just outside the little top-zip pouch (for small things like glasses, etc), at the base of the right side of the zipper (as you're looking at the pack). There's a little clamp that you squeeze to loosen the grip and tweak the elastic to adjust. Easy to do. Hard to find!

Notice the perforated shoulder straps for ventilation/comfort!

Hope this Helps!

Day Hiker

I bought one of these packs for my girlfriend and I. They come with us pretty much everywhere. Short hikes, full day hikes, biking around town, and even took it to the beach. It holds much more than you would expect and has so many pockets to keep your stuff nice and tidy.

Ospreys' are Great! I think the Osprey Raven would fit her better, and be more comfortable. It's specifically designed for women, having a little bit shorter length (torso), and the strap configuration is somewhat more narrow. I have the Raven 14 and love it. My friend has the Raptor 14, and I have worn it, and there IS a difference! It hits much lower on the back, and the straps are comparatively wider than the Raven's. For reference, I'm 5'6".
Maybe when they go on sale, get her the Raven, she'll love it even more!
Hope this helps.

She is actually wearing mine in the photo. Hers is the smaller size which fits her torso much better than the one in the photo. Thanks for the advice though!

Glad to hear that!

Have a great hiking season!

The "PACK LEADER" Osprey!

Great hydration pack, very versatile. Love my Osprey Raven 14, too!

Good packs are hard-to-find!

Here's my friend with his Raptor 14. If anyone has trouble with the lid, just hold fast the plastic hinge (that connects the lid to the bladder) and then turn lid.
Other than that, Osprey is simple the best...hands-down!

Great Pack...Bad Lid Design...

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

Bought this as a gift for a friend...and bought the new Raven 14 (both back in March, 2013). This pack is totally awesome, as the previous reviewer says; EXCEPT now the lids don't want to tighten correctly and cross-thread; you have to 'fiddle' around with it till finally you get it right (ya kinda feel like you've won the lottery, or something when it finally screws on correctly!). They were a bit difficult at first, but now it's a real pain (don't get it just right, the water runs out of course!). Tried to contact Osprey to at least make them aware of this design problem.
(just a note: no, these weren't left in a hot car, nor was hot water put in the bladders; just poor threading on lids). And also for this reason...4 stars instead of 5

Really great pack but...

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

i thought about giving it only 4 stars because the lid for the reservoir has some issues, but they are minor. The little plastic strap that attaches the lid to the reservoir was so tight on the lid that it could barely be turned with one hand and prevented the lid from threading properly. As a result, the lid would look like it was in place but leak. i cut the little strap and now it works fine, the threading is still a little funky though. Only other issue is that there's a lot a material in the hip straps after you tighten them. i suppose the excess material COULD get in the way, but it never has for me.

Everything else about the bag is spot on. Fits all the tools and pumps and food and knee pads and helmet and rain jacket and arm warmers. with all that gear, it's pretty tight, but most of us aren't riding our own shuttle for a gnarly downhill run with cold, wet weather that will take all day so you need tons of food and water.

The magnetic catch for the hose is really handy for grabbing a quick drink right before a rough section. and being able to zip out the reservoir instead of having to unthread it through the bag is really nice. Tool pouch and stretch pockets and sunglasses pocket and are really great. Lid lock is plenty secure and best system i've found for keeping cool on the ride up. Also, it shows no wear and tear after a couple wrecks.

It provides as much ventilation as possible while keeping it close to your body for drops, gaps, and all the other fun parts. better than my old camelbak. Bottom line, one of the best bags on the market.

I though it was just "me" having problems with getting the lid on correct! It is just as you say; and even when I try to hold the little plastic lid strap in place, the lid still doesn't want to thread correctly! I also love this pack...except for this issue. Maybe we should contact Osprey, and any other's out there experiencing this same issue. I know it's not the end of the world, however, they need to be made aware, and hopefully remedy this problem. At least I know now, "it's not just me!" Thanks!

Great pack, good design

I have really enjoyed my Osprey pack, it fits against the body nicely and stays in place on technical trails. It has plenty of storage and puts up with lots of abuse. I love the magnetic clasp, it makes it simple to store the bit valve when you are not taking a drink and tends to snap back into place without fail.

When I first got the pack the bite valve swivel leaked, it had developed a small crack, I emailed Osprey and they sent me a new one free of charge the next day. A few weeks later the new bite valve developed another crack, so I called them up and they explained that it was a known issue and they just redesigned it, I got the new one the next day which was a slightly beefier version and have not had the problem since (plus every new pack I see in the wild now has the updated version). So all in all the pack is great and the company stands behind it, what more can you ask!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this particular pack as a gift...he loves it. I have the woman's version, "RAVEN 14", it's the best out there, as everyone else attest! Even fully loaded on a very hot ride it was still breezy (one small part of the back gets a bit sweaty, but the right jersey and sitting up straight once in awhile,or taking a short break) and you're dry very quickly. Very stable even fully loaded, though the hip straps could be a bit shorter/tighter for smaller ladies; hopefully Osprey will address this on the next issue of the woman's pack. Highly recommended to all!
So guys, tell your lady(s) about the "Raven" by osprey, it really does fit better. Or better yet, get it for her ..."just because" you care!
