Jungle ruins to alpine vistas.
One of the most versatile packs in Osprey's collection, the ingeniously designed Osprey Daylite Plus Backpack is a roomy daypack that attaches to larger Osprey packs on longer adventures. The relatively compact, easy-carrying size lends itself to everything from spirited hikes up towering peaks to sightseeing along tropical coastlines and jungle ruins. It's hydration-compatible, thanks to an internal slip that fits an Osprey Hydraulics reservoir (not included), doubling as a handy spot for a smaller tablet.
The main compartment and front-access pocket eagerly swallow a windbreaker, energy bars, small gadgets, and other must-haves. There's a front organizer pocket with integrated clip for securing your keys and daily essentials. Side mesh pockets clutch water bottles for extra hydration capacity.
Enhancing its functionality for serious excursions and far-flung travel, the Daylite Plus integrates with the following Osprey packs: Aether/Ariel series, Volt/Viva series, Ace 75, Shuttle Series, Sojourn Series, Farpoint 80, and Porter series.

- Q & A
This is just a solid, all around backpack. Nothing beats osprey!
If only it fit!
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
The pack itself is just what I wanted--good size, well made, great color.... I really, really wanted this to work for me and my rotator cuff that needs to be babied.. Alas, the sizing is just all wrong for my neck/shoulders. The straps attach at the top in a way that makes them too close to each other, digging in to the side of my neck, and the stiffened pad pokes up into my neck/bottom of head. Dropping it down off my waist didn't help--the straps were still too close together, and taking 3 steps pushed the pad back up into my neck. Sigh. So sorry to return!
It's all about the "Plus"
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The Daylite is just about the best lightweight, simple, technical daypack on the market, it works as a small travel pack, lightweight hiking pack or as a hydration pack. Osprey made an even better version, in the Daylite Plus. It is the extra volume and organization needed for day to day commuting, packing a few kid's things, carrying extra layers on a mountain bike ride, trips back and forth to the gym, and more. I recently used it as a carry on for air travel, handles a laptop, books, toiletries, water bottles, keys, charger, you get the point - fit's a bunch of stuff! I will say, when it's full with heavy items, the carrying systems/straps are a bit too soft and pliable to provide good support, but I had it pretty heavily weighted down. Overall, great quality and great function!
Hands down, favorite
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I’d put somewhere over 400 miles on this daypack before it was tragically stolen out of my car. This pack is ultra durable (snow, rain, scrambling/brushing against rocks) and it looked new even after three years of consistent use. I bought this pack to replace the old one – I wouldn’t consider another pack because it performed so well, the choice was easy. Getchu one and GTF OUTSIDE!
Best Travel Carry On
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
First trip out of the package for this pack was a two and a half week Medical Teams International trip all over Nepal (in February). This pack took an amazing beating and never quit! From the Besi (bottom of the mountains) to the heights of the most remote Himalayan District of Humla, this pack took it all! I used this pack as my carry on and as a "summit pack". If my Osprey Packs Aether AG 70 wasn't with me this pack was! It has replaced my prior carry-on bag for life. And, it attaches to the Osprey Packs Aether AG 70; however, not the fastest set-up for attaching (especially when both are stuffed full)! Such a great product! The only suggestion to improve your use of this pack would be to use a small carabiner to attache your water bottle, they tend to work their way out of the mesh side packets.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The upgrades to an already wonderful do everything pack are fantastic. The front pocket and the stuff pouch along with the side stuff pockets make the pack more versatile and accommodating for the items you wish to keep handy.
Osprey Daylite Plus Product Tour
Check out the new Osprey Daylite Plus! It's just like our best selling Daylite, with one additional zippered pocket and a shove-it pocket. Perfect for travel, a day hike, or whatever adventure finds you.
Could you fit a 15" laptop in this pack? I'm looking for something that I could use on a daily commute with my laptop and then for hikes, have a hydration compatible pack. Thanks!
I was looking for a pack about this size for day hiking. I bought it and the only think that i dislike is that it only comes in 1 size and i have to extend the straps all the way because im tall. any suggestions.
I am wondering if you reached out to Osprey warranty directly, they would be able to help you with a solution. Please see the link below. Thank you!
