    Daylite 13L Backpack

    The Osprey Daylite Backpack Attachment is ideal for minimalist missions, fast-paced hikes, and travel itineraries where lightweight carrying and minimal bulk is of utmost importance. It's an ingenious add-on to larger Osprey packs, specializing in carrying only the essentials when a larger pack is simply overkill. Hydration-compatibility means it'll accept an Osprey Hydraulics reservoir (not included) when you're walking long distances, ascending high altitudes, or dealing with hot climates.

    Spacer Mesh shoulder straps bolster the pack without soaking you in built-up perspiration on those steamy summer days. The pack's main compartment offers panel access for quickly grabbing and stashing items on the move. Inside the main area, the internal slip works to secure your hydration reservoir, doubling as a handy space for a small tablet. As a convenient bonus, there's a front organizer pocket with integrated clip for attaching keys and other necessities.

    For enhanced functionality, the Daylite attaches to the following Osprey packs: Aether/Ariel series, Volt/Viva series, Ace 75, Shuttle series, Sojourn Series, Farpoint 80, and Porter series.

    • Compact daypack for fast-moving hikes and travel
    • Hydration-compatible design (reservoir not included)
    • Integrates with larger Osprey packs for enhanced function
    • Spacer Mesh shoulder harness provides breathable support
    • Main compartment with panel-loading access

    Perfect Day Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Honestly, I own a lot of bags, rucks, and backpacks. This is my VERY favorite day pack for traveling and day hikes. I take it to work too! It's very comfortable to wear. My Macbook Air fits in it -- pretty snug -- but it fits.

    I am not sure if it's waterproof.

    The price on Back Country was/is excellent -- thank you for that.

    Great little day pack

      This is a great little day pack. I recently took it on a 10 mile hike, and it was perfect for storing water bladder, snacks, and a light jacket.

      If you have small items to carry and don't like purses, this would be a good alternative.

      I love Osprey Packs and would definitely recommend this brand.

      Great little day pack

      Neck vs. Shoulders issue?

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

      I really, really, really, wanted to love this pack, but the shape of the strap as it rides across the neck and traps made it unwearable at any weight. I though that maybe it was riding high because I had only a few work items in there, but even a day trip load couldn’t keep the cross strap from riding my neck. Storage wise it ranks up there with most better urban or light-duty packs and I love the adjustable height chest strap!!! If I hadn’t thought that snipping that cross strap would compromise the balance on the bag, I’d have kept it for the price. Damn shame!

      Best hiking/road trip backpack!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I purchased this backpack to take on our road trip to Nevada/Utah. It is the perfect size for me since I’m pretty small. The padded shoulders and back support were amazing. It was super easy to carry even though I had it filled with stuff. I like the design and the compartments in the front zipper area. I highly recommend it. I even purchased one for my husband because he liked mine.

      Grab and go

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

      This is a nice bag if you have a few things you want to take with you on a hike, or to run some errands on your bike.

      Superior Design & Quality

        Great daypack with superior design and quality. Very comfortable to wear on hot days because of the vented back. Attaches securely to my Osprey Porter 46 with compatable clips. I can attach loaded or empty for use when I need a daypack. Top quality material and zippers.

        Solid Daypack

          This is a lovely light daypack, a daylite if you will. The features are pretty but it's got everything you need for a dayhike - hydration compatibility, plenty of space for a rain layer/camera/goodies, comfortable mesh. I like the integrated clip in the front loader to attach gear to. Also, a fantastic price point. It's minimalist without feeling light at all on usability.

          Solid Daypack

          Great day pack option!

            This pack is great for short day hikes where you want to be hands-free and have your essentials with you. It's a lot more minimal than other Osprey packs which I'm actually a fan of. Most of the time I don't carry a lot with me and just want a few things with me.

            The 13 liter is great for a thin layer, snacks, a couple water bottles, keys, and sunglasses. It carries comfortably and I love the thin hip belt. It doesn't do much for support, but does keep the pack close to my body which makes it more comfortable.

            It has a nice, flexible back panel which keeps the pack from collapsing in on itself when it's not stuffed to capacity. It also keeps things from digging into your back if you have some bulkier items inside.

            Overall, a good go-to for a minimal day pack if you're looking for something to carry your essentials!

            Hailey, I love this Daylite so much - it has to be one of the versatile and simple packs that Osprey makes. AND it's $50!! Can't beat it! Top it off with an All Mighty Guaranty as well, and Osprey has you covered.

            Enjoy -

            Osprey Rep

            Perfect size for short hikes!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I love this bag because you can easily pack all of your essentials while being comfortable and light. The bag actually has great organization inside, both pockets are surprisingly large and each one has some internal organization. There are two water bottle pockets on the sides, I like to use one for a water bottle and the other for a quick grab pocket. The compression straps help keep everything from sloshing around.

            Overall a great hiking pack or quick summit pack!

            Perfect size for short hikes!

            Stoked on this bag!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I just got this as my new hiking pack. It is perfect! Not too big and not too small. I like how it is low profile and fits everything I need to hit the trails. It is nice for biking to and from work occasionally too. Definitely would recommend!

            Bigger than anticipated, not a bad thing

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            This is a pretty cool bag. It's a little larger than anticipated but that is an added bonus. I like that it's hydration compatible. It's the perfect bag for day hikes, commutes to and from work, used as a carry on for traveling and just all around use. I was pleasantly surprised with the 13L pack. You can fit a good amount of stuff into this bag!

            Exactly what it should be

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I love this pack. I needed a day pack because I was using an oversized school backpack that kept giving me chafe marks on my collar bone from the straps. I'm happy to report this pack has great straps that do not pinch or cause any issues! It's finally nice to have a lightweight pack. It seems obvious, but you don't realize how much every ounce of weight matters until you get legit, lightweight gear. I also got the water bladder that goes with this pack. I don't know why I waited so long to get a water bladder.. I can cut my hike times way down with a bladder because I'm not constantly pulling out my water bottle. I can keep moving and drinking at the same time. I highly recommend this pack and the bladder that goes with it!

            Perfect day pack.

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I've used this pack for day hikes, as a carry on, and as my bag for bike commutes and it has held up amazingly. It fits everything I'll need without being bulky and is comfortable enough to carry loads up mountains without back pain. I can just fit my 13in Mac in the large compartment which makes it oh so convenient as a carry on for flights where I have to check a bag. Love this little pack!

            Great Little Pack!

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

            This pack is great for day hikes! Its small and comfortable but can hold a very surprising amount. The front zip pocket has little mesh organizer pockets which I found very helpful to hold keys and chapstick. Also, love the big side pockets and that it has hydration sleeve!

            What kind/size rain cover would you recommend for this pack or the daylite plus?

            Hey Ian! I would recommend getting the Osprey HI-Vis Pack cover. The item number on our site is OSP002N. All you need to do is copy and paste it into the search bar. The best size to fit this pack will be the XS. If you have any more questions please let me know!

            It says the Hydraulics reservoir fits with this bag, would all sizes work? Or would you suggest one size over another?

            Is the Daylite day pack water resistant or water proof?
