    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.

    • Versatile daypack for outdoor excursions 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
    • Interior slip fits reservoir or small tablet
    • Front organizer pocket with key clip

    The basics perfected

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

    This is just a really solid day pack. It's light, compresses down easily for storage, and is durable for pretty much any day activity--except maybe caving. The 20L volume is enough space for 2 water bottles, 2 jackets, a camera, and a lunch. Honestly unless you're a bunch of heavy items, this is all you need on a day hike.

    Mother-in-Law approved!

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

    I purchased this as a nice day pack for my mother-in-law. She's been doing hikes every Tuesday with a crew. She was using a sling before this bag, but has been sending me photos of her using this pack like no other. She doesn't hike too far so it's a perfect size for her.

    I chose this bag so she can easily fit a reservoir if she wanted to. There's optional water bottles and big enough storage to stuff a second jacket or two in the pack. Even with the extra clothes, she is able to stores extra snacks and headlamps. This is a great bag to give as a gift!

    Mother-in-Law approved!

    Awesome Pack!

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

    My boyfriend needed a new bigger pack so I bought him this one. It is the perfect size and has all the right pockets! He needed a good day pack for when we are out hiking that can hold food and extra layers. This one fits everything perfectly, without being too big, and the Hydration sleeve is a plus! He has used it numerous times on the trail and loves it!! It can also double as a travel bag, which is really convenient. It is a great size and has lots of pockets to stay organized.

    In love

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Now i've always loved osprey. Over the years i've used many daypacks for my daily and none have been this durable with this amount of gadgets. In other words, none have been osprey. This backpack will go to the ends of earth and back with no problem. Everything I need and want with no hinderance to performance. And not only that, it looks beautiful. I look forward to a lifetime of use from this bag. It's so good i've convinced some friends to buy it and they love it as well.

    Hey there - THANK YOU for a great review. In my mind, this is an "out of the park" pack. That's where they hit it. Great size, fit, feature set.... and of course, Osprey's All Mighty Guaranty gives you the piece of mind to know that they will take care of any issues. Period. Happy Trails!

    Great Value

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

    I read through a lot of reviews before i bought this for my BIL's birthday! For the price this is probably the best option out there. He has been using the same one for about 15 years and was stoked to receive this.

    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!

    Hey Melissa, Thank you for the great review on the Daylite Plus! It's such a great size and has just enough features to make it versitile! Best thing about it is the price - can't be beat at $65!

    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.

    Best Travel Carry On

    Hi Patrick, I'm lookinf for a day pack, but I'm a petit person, so, the daypack (in the pic) looks big on your body, so Is it the Daylite 20 L?
    I´ll aprecciate your response.

    Great upgrades

    • 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.

    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.
