- Q & A
It's the little things!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I will start by saying I am a big fan of Osprey, they make great packs that always have a variety of great little features that make the bags stand out from a functionality standpoint. It is clear that when they are developed they are tested in real life situations. After badly bruising my back while wearing an ill fitting pack on a 40mile ride, I broke down and ordered the Osprey Raven 14 Hydration Pack which I had my eye on for a couple years. I have the Royal Purple which unlike the picture is very purple and not at all blue (for my this was a positive!). The bag is a great fit for a small torso. There are great stretchy zippered pockets on the waist belt that are perfect for an easily accessible snack bar. The included hydration sleeve has a tube that magnetically clips to your chest strap for easy out of the way access. And there is a great clip for storing your helmet when you are off bike and wandering town.
This is a great bag with lots of great features. I docked it down a star because the image doesn't match the actual color, but functionally the bag is great!
Wrong color, otherwise amazing
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I ordered the Tempo Teal color, but in real life, the color is bright blue, not at all teal. It's a pretty color, in my opinion, but it doesn't match my other gear very well. Disappointing :(
Other than the color, everything about this pack is amazing. I wanted a small daypack for hiking that could organize and fit all my essentials. I can fit water (obviously), rain coat, extra socks, extra leggings, bear spray, a first aid kit, two tubes of sunscreen, headlamps, knife, whistle, food, sunglasses, etc. and all of it is organized and easy to access! It makes everything easier when you're tired and don't have to dig to the bottom of your pack to find that chocolate bar you're craving. My only complaint is that my phone doesn't fit in the hip pockets, but that's not a big deal. If you're a minimalist hiker who still carries the essentials, you'll love this bag.
I hate the giant Osprey logos splashed across the front of the bag, and yeah, the colors aren't great, but you can't have everything!
I originally purchased the men's version of this pack (the Raptor 14). That pack is identical, as far as I can tell, except that the chest strap doesn't move high enough, hitting me right across my breast (and I'm fairly petite). Too bad, because I liked the dark gray color of the men's bag!
