4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Green is a tad darker than the picture.
6' - 170lbs - Went with size Large and it fits like a normal shirt. Would have gone Medium if I wanted a tight/performance/slim fit.
Feels light and am looking forward to putting it through the wringer.

Adequate for the job.
The videos and pictures make it look a tad thicker than it really is.

Not as bulky as some describe, it compresses down small enough for short backcountry trips. I think it is right in-between a car camper and a backcountry pad. If you are a car camper, go for something more luxurious, if you are a backcountry camper, go something lighter.

5'11, 160 lbs, Medium Size
Fits, but a tad snug in the shoulders, if I was layering more under I would probably go large, but Medium works well for me.
Goretex Softshell both feels nice and is 100% waterproof and very breathable. Only complaint would be that the jacket is a tad heavy.

This thing is so close to being perfect. I initially ordered the 45 L and 65L because I was not sure what size I needed. I found that the 65L was way to big and would only work as a checked bag. The 45L was perfect size for an longer trip, while still being a carry-on. The only problem I found- was that if using the bag as a backpack (the handle turns into two backpack straps) - the bag had to be fully loaded to be comfortable, if you had room to spare, the bag was not symmetrical, and was not comfortable on your back. Also no waist belt, which was one thing I wanted. I had to return both bags, but If you are looking for more of a duffle, a perfect size,and don't need the backpack straps, this is the bag for you. Super durable and super lightweight

As with all Osprey bags I have owned, this thing is bombproof, super durable, and very comfortable. I loaded it up with about a weeks worth of clothes and accessories and had plenty of room to spare. I plan on taking this bag with me as my one and only carry on for a 2-3 month trip to europe. I highly recommend this bag for travel.

If you were a fan of the old Backcountry.com Inbounds glove, you are going to love these! Very similar fit and feel to them, just a tad longer cuff and the Medium Forge feels just a tad bigger than the Medium Inbounds. Awesome durable, dexterous, and warm glove, I plan on buying another pair so I have them for years to come - just like I should have with the Inbounds glove. I was in between Large and Medium, sized down because I like to break the leather in.
