Pack anything from the essentials to a weekend's worth of cabin-worthy clothes into Osprey's Escapist 32 Backpack and go mountain biking. Its BioStretch harness adjusts the mesh-lined, padded shoulder straps and waist belt for a personalized fit, and the AirScape back panel ensures ventilation. There's an external hydration sleeve for your own reservoir, and a removable rain cover inside the bottom compartment. You can also use the bottom compartment to separate dirty shoes from clean clothes, and there are stretchy pockets at the front and sides to stow water bottles and rain shells.

- Q & A
Love this Backpack!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The pockets on this pack are endless and it's amazing. Just when you think you're out of room, you find another pocket and somehow has more space to stuff things into. It's also great for organization. I used this pack to hike Kilimanjaro and put a 2.5 liter hydration bladder in the back and it worked perfect. It's also washes great. and holds more than you could imagine or ever want for the size of pack. The durability is great. They only thing I would say is my shoulders were sore after carrying this pack around for a week, but that's to be expected when carrying 25 pounds in it all day.
Best all purpose pack
I gave this backpack as a gift to my friend and this is what he had to say: This is a great minimalist pack for trips. It has many of the features of larger packs (rain cover, pockets of all sizes, hip straps, etc) without being too bulky to fit under an airplane seat.Â Â The pack is built from quality material but the black pack I bought does not draw unwanted attention to me as a tourist when I travel.

This pack has gone everywhere with me over the past 2.5 years. It's been on multiple day hikes and trips overseas; I have taken it to each major continent aside from South America (I am including Antarctica). Although it's a bike pack, I use it as my everyday pack. It is of very high quality. If I HAD to complain about something, it would be the shallower water bottle pockets on the side. Sometimes, my water-bottle falls out when I bend over. That might be normal for most packs though.
Finally found the right one
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After searching, and countless returns, i finally found the backpack that works for me. My trip to Colorado requires me to pack layers, even in summer, so i needed a large backpack that would fit everything i needed: layers, water, first aid, survival items, camera, etc. And this fits the bill just right. I really enjoy the big pocket being split into a bottom and upper level. It's always a pain having to dig around the backpack for items at the bottom and this feature helps eliminate that. I personally put items like the survival kit, first aid kit and other things that i don't use much (hopefully not used at all) but easy enough for it to be accessed quickly if need be. Also great for wet clothes.
Shoulder straps and waist belt are comfortable just like any Osprey backpack. Really great brand.
Plus the backpack is good for multi purposes. Fits most airlines for carry on and has enough space to fit things like a laptop.
Excellent do all daypack
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this for day hikes with my kids, both on foot and on my bike. They have their own little hydration packs, but I still haul the heavy stuff for food, cameras, fishing stuff, 1st aid, etc etc. The bottom pocket fits my Cannon full size DSLR just fine, and the top still has plenty of room for everything else. My only gripe, and this goes for ALL osprey hydration, I don't like their bite valves. There is no cover for them, and they inevitably end up dusty and dirty, which makes drinking less pleasant. They REALLY need to make a cover for it.
Would I be able to carry my laptop in this bag? Looking for something I can take on day trips, and also for other daily activities. Or does Osprey make any daypacks that have a laptop sleeve?
I have this pack and unfortunately it does not have a laptop sleeve but the main compartment can be divided into two separate compartments so if you wanted to pack your laptop, you wont have to worry about it touching the bottom of the pack.
Osprey makes quite a few day packs that have a laptop/tablet sleeve. Search our site with the following item numbers:
You can also follow the link below which will take you to all Osprey packs that feature a laptop sleeve.
I can't find any information on sizing for this pack. It's not listed in the table here or on Osprey's website. What are the recommended torso lengths for each size?
S/M 16"-20" M/L 19"-23" You can download the manual on Osprey's site and it has all the specs.
