Load up everything you need for a day in the mountains in your Osprey Women's Skimmer 22 Hydration Pack and hit the open trail. A simple design, supportive framesheet, and comfortable mesh-lined shoulder harness make the Skimmer easy to pack and comfortable to carry whether you're exploring a new trail, tackling summits, or just pedaling your bike across town.
The Skimmer comes with a 2.5-liter hydration reservoir, making it easy to stay hydrated when you're out hiking on a hot and sunny day. The Skimmer has more pockets than you can shake a stick at, including a scratch-free pocket for sunglasses or electronics, a front organizer for small items, and a front shove-it pocket for a light layer or rain jacket, just to name a few.

Might have skimmed the wrong pack...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When I was presented with a large tote of backpacks on my recent trip to California (see "State of Gold" on the Backcountry homepage), I ended up choosing the Skimmer 22. Seems like I should have chose the Skarab and given this one to Rachel or Kate! Haha. My mistake. Even though I ended up choosing this women's pack, I was impressed with the Skimmer's performance on the trail. I hiked with it in Death Valley, Joshua Tree and used it as a beach bag in San Clemente. I really liked the non-scratch pocket for sunglasses and the ability to use a 2.5-liter bladder (I drink lots of H2O). Plus the BioForm harness had enough adjustment for me at 6'1" with a 34" waist even though the waist hipbelt was pretty far up my torso. Ideally you want the waist hipbelt on your hips obviously. I would still recommend this pack to any woman or man looking for a versatile, comfortable hiking pack for the summer. Osprey knows what they are doing even if I don't sometimes!
