Pixel 26L Backpack

Whatever your choice in go-to technology is, the Pixel Backpack is built to carry it—after all, its name has a direct connection to display screens, so it's obviously tech friendly. The padded sleeves protect your laptop and tablet, and the main compartment expands and compresses to keep your electronics secure.

Meanwhile, 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. Additionally, the Portal organization (that's located within 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. And, not to mention, the Pixel features a hidden, adjustable extension, offering you an extra 4-liters of room when push comes to shove.

Fantastic bag 2

Here is a view from the left side of the bag. You can see the separate laptop area, zip compression, water bottle pocket, front admin pocket that goes a little more than halfway down the bag and the tech pocket at the bottom. Also note that when the bag is flapped open you don't have to fight with the top as it stays out of the way. There's a handy handle so you can move the bag around while it's open. The front flap also has a small pocket thats a good size. I can fit my 15-in laptop in and out of the laptop area by angling it to put it in and to take it out. Nice safety feature. In the picture is also the tech pouch, which I have folded its cover backwards to give an idea of what the interior looks like.

Fantastic Bag!

I've used it several times
5` 9"
155 lbs

This bags carries well for my height and weight. The separate laptop compartment can fit my 15-in. I just have to angle it when putting it in and angle it when taking it out.It is not a hassle for me, as this is a safety measure so that my laptop does not tumble out onto the floor. I have used this as a 5-day minimal travel bag (with a small crossbody bag tucked inside). My size 8 zero sandals fit horizontally, with or without the tech pouch. I never overstuff my bags, but this one can hold a good amount and I rather like the side compression zippers. This bag is also pretty secure when closed, which is great. The tech pouch has two internal zippers and a good space for chords. This was a well-thought-out bag and I really appreciate it.

Great around pack

I've put it through the wringer

I have had this pack for around a year and still love it. I cary my laptop, iPad and occasionally my developer laptop top in it. It is plenty big to put a Mac book in the laptop compartment, altho I choose to put it in the folder compartment in the main compartment. I cary gym clothes and shower supplies each day to work in it, and for travel I expand the main pack. I have received several complement on it and one of the guys a work with liked it so much he went and bought one as well. If you cary a laptop this is the best back pack I have found and I bought two other back packs at the same time to try them and chose this one.

Love Osprey

I've put it through the wringer

This is a biased review because I have four Osprey packs of different sizes and uses, but I love this backpack for school. It keeps my belongings dry through sideways, pouring rain and the compartments are all easily accessible and roomy. Only drawback is that the laptop intended side-zip doesn't fit mine (15-in). This is mostly due to the mesh at the bottom that prevents your laptop from falling out if unzipped, which is fine. I'd rather the support be there than not, and accessing my laptop from the top flap isn't an inconvenience for me.

Thank you so much for the review, Melissa! Enjoy! Leta Osprey Rep

Great bag

I've used it several times

Looking for a commuter bag for my 90 minute Amtrak commute. Plenty of space, very comfortable to wear, great access to computer and tablet pouches via side zippers. Water bottle holders on both sides are sized for large Camelbak or Nalgene bottles and hold tight. Bag holds my lunch, a tablet, 15' laptop, chargers, book, note pad, jacket, + small personal items. all without being bulky. Great bag. If you have doubts, don't - this bag is perfect for a commuter.

Tyler, Thank you so much for the great review. I have the panel zip version of this bag (called the Cyber), and cannot imagine my life without it! Enjoy your Osprey! Leta Osprey Rep
