Pixel 22L Backpack

Pack your laptop and tablet into the extremely convenient Pixel Backpack and head out the door. Padded sleeves protect your laptop and tablet, and the main compartment expands and compresses to keep your electronics secure. The Neospacer shoulder harness and spacer mesh Airscape back panel provide the same comfort that Osprey's big backpacks are known for. Osprey added a Powerhouse organizer for your cords, chargers, and other electronic accessories. The Portal organization inside the main compartment was well-thought-out to provide spaces for all your daily accessories. This pack also features document sleeves in the main compartment and a zippered top non-scratch pocket for your smartphone or sunglasses.

Perfect Size and lots of features

I've used it several times

Love this bag. It's the perfect size with tons of hidden pockets and features. From the outside it looks slim and simple. Opening the flap reveals tons of storage for pens, wallet, cash, phone etc. It even has a removable small tote (which looks kinda like a cosmetic bag) which is perfect for storing my charger cord. Its comfortable to carry whether on two shoulders or just one. One of my favorite features is how the laptop slips into the side rather than the top so I dong have to open the whole bag when I only want to remove my computer. It also unzips on the side to make the bag larger to accommodate a bunch more crud if needed. Great bag!

Hey Darin - Agree 100%. I have the panel load version, the Cyber, and I enjoy all of the features you describe (except the side entry for the laptop, because I can easily get it from the top). The Pixel has such a great look, and organizer lots of stuff - glad you love it! Leta Osprey Rep

Office hero

This pack has lived up to my expectations, although I have only used it lightly at this point. I’m a light packer, but this pack has plenty of capacity for a long weekend. It is also sleek and professional enough that I use it to bring things to and from my office – the added lap top pocket comes in handy when doubling this pack as a briefcase, and the padding and pocket space makes it both practical and secure to do so. I look forward to using this pack much more!

Excellent - thanks Ryan! Leta Osprey Rep

Great for work and gym

So I bought this and the blade 20 I returned the blade 20 because this one just worked better. Don't get me wrong the blade is a great backpack but I think it is more suited for the business traveler. The osprey pixel is better for he work and gym on a typical day I work 14 hours then hit the gym the pixel is ideal for this. It holds a 15 in laptop and my iPad Pro with case no problem in the back section. Then in the main flip top section I can store my clothes and towel with out letting out the option extension zippers. In the power pack I actually Cary my toiletries for showering after the gym and in the organizer pocket my charging cords. Lastly it n the days I actually need to take my big 17in work station laptop I can let out the optional extension zippers and carry it in the flip top main compartment. While the main section isn't as as cushioned as the back compartment it works. Great back pack love it looks great feels great on and carries everything

Hey Robert - I have definitely enjoyed my Pixel as well. It is well thought out, great features, my favorite being the PowerHouse cord and mouse storage in the bottom! Well done, Osprey! Leta Osprey Rep

Well thought out pack!

I'm a little bit of a backpack-a-holic as I tend to be quite particular with things that I use on a daily basis. After trying out 2 North Face packs (Kaban Transit and Microbyte), I still felt there were things missing. The Pixel Pack is quite honestly perfect - well thought out pockets and organizers, expandable size! and built solid. Ospery knows what they are can't go wrong with it.

Excellent choice for me!

I've put it through the wringer

As a disclosure - this Osprey product is my 5th pack from this company (and I use all of them) so I'm not neutral. Moreover, I've been carrying packs of various types for different purposes for well over a half-century. This is a relatively simple tech-pack with an amazing low profile even when loaded, which means it carries well without sagging when fully loaded. The ingenious feature that really grew on me was the lime-colored interior. When I look for something in the pack I can see it without the usual fumbling around in a black-lined pack. I chose the gray herringbone fabric, which is unusual enough that there's never a question about which pack is mine. The padded grab handle is a great alternative to using the shoulder straps. I typically carry files, a Mac Air, iPad mini, the necessary cables, backup drive and accessories, notepad, mouse, a couple of books, and more. I haven't had to use the extension feature yet. It doesn't have side pockets for a flask or water bottle, so I have relegated the bottom exterior compartment for carrying a small Sigg bottle. I've had mine for four months and use it almost daily. I'm not gentle, often dropping it into the rear passenger section of my pickup. So far it's holding up great (as have my other Osprey packs, some of which have had hard use in rugged circumstances).

Well Neal, I am not neutral, either! So glad you like your pack! Leta Osprey Rep

The Holy Grail of packs!

I've put it through the wringer

So let me start off by saying that I haven't had a Osprey pack that I don't like. I have the Aura for weekend backpacking trips and the Kode for winter touring. NOW I've added the Pixel to my arsenal of Osprey Packs. I love this pack. I've been needing a new pack that can handle life of a student that can also be used for work and life in general. This pack does it all. The laptop carry makes it easy to haul around my work laptop. The expandable body is so convenient when I need to carry textbooks around. not to mention the organizer is perfect for carrying USB drives, pencils, sunglasses case and more! The most outer pocket is so nice for quick access to my wallet and cell phone when needed! This isn't like your ordinary school pack either! The straps are super comfy (padded) and they dry super fast so when you biking or running across campus to get to your next class you don't feel all sweaty and gross. Did I also mention that they include a powerhouse organizers (separate pouch for cords)! This way you don't have to worry about pesky cords getting all tangled up! This really is the most amazing pack that I have had. It keeps up with my work/school and life! Thank you Osprey for being so innovative and thinking about life in the modern age! I would highly recommend this for your brand new graduate! or as a gift for your significant other that needs a sleek, comfortable and functional pack!


Does the hipbelt on this pack stow away? Thanks.

Hey Josh! The hip belt is not detachable and the way it's stitched to the bottom of the shoulder straps it's not really "stowable" anywhere. Let me know if you have any other questions or need help finding a new backpack. Thanks!
