Aaron P.wrote a review of Osprey Packs Stratos 34L Backpack on April 5, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I thought up-sizing to 34L bag would be too big for my needs of daily grab n go to a day hike/overnight bag. . Nope. This pack is awesome. The split main compartment is great to store a packable raincoat in the bottom, plus plenty of room for layers and a camera case, snacks etc. this section can be unhooked to extend the main top load pocket. The hip pockets are big, mesh stash pocket at the top is bigger than I expected. with this pack my back never sweats and it always feels snug. it's stowable rain cover was a pleasant surprise, you won't get caught off guard with this pack. However, the natural curve of the pack is not perfect for a laptop if you want to use it like that. my solution is to just pack a sweatshirt or shorts to fill the void. it works like a charm.
