Osprey wins again. I love their suspension system and am always happy with their organization and durability. This was no exception. It's super easy to adjust to your size, as well.
I would recommend this size for mountaineering.
For backpacking though, this size will for for most people, IF you are always going to be backpacking with a friend, sharing the gear. I personally couldn't get everything I needs for myself into this pack, in cold climates. If you are always going to be in a warmer climate, you should be able to fit everything you need in this size. But, for high alpine where you need a bigger sleeping bag and more layers and jacket, it would be a tight fit for most people. I could not fit my 0 degree in the sleeping bag compartment, so something to keep in mind if you always take a big sleeping bag.
I measured my torso and at 17in, the S/Mwas great.
Great pack with just what you need
CHeck out the fetures for the Osprey Kyte Series!
The Leader of the Pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have always been a avid fan of Osprey. When I was 11 I got my first Osprey day pack and still have it to this day, with no holes or damage. This is a testament to the quality and durability of these packs (trust me, I have not been easy on that thing!) So when I got a chance to use the new Kyte pack, I was excited to see what it could do for me.
The first thing I noticed was the versatility of this pack. With 46 liters, it is an excellent size for backpacking through Europe, weekend backpacking trips, car camping, glamping, and even thru-hikes when packing needs to be done lightly. In my time using this pack, I took it on an overnight climbing trip where we car camped, a weekend long trip in Moab, and through the snowy Wasatch mountains to a cabin for an overnight get away. Each time I took this pack I was astounded by the level of versatility and comfort it had. I sized this in a S/M as my waist is 26 inches and it fit perfectly. The adjustment system is easy to use, and fits nicely on top of my hips so that my back doesn't take all the weight. The mesh on the shoulders and waist make it very comfortable, so even with the jostling of hiking it didn't feel like my hips were getting bruised like some packs make me feel.
The next thing I noticed was the amount of storage. For a smaller pack, I was able to fit all my sleeping needs, tent included, plus a rumple bag, some climbing gear, food, mess kit, clothes and water bottles. There is also room to attach gear to the outside of the pack, just add a few carabiners to the mix.
Osprey offers a lifetime warranty which shows the faith they put in their gear. I too put the same faith in their product and recommend this pack to all the ladies out there needing a reliable multi-use backpack since this truly is the "leader of the pack".
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
