dannewwrote a review of Osprey Packs Quasar 28L Backpack on September 8, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
My kids argued over who would get this one.
We looked at lots of packs in this size, and this was the standout. Nearly as comfortable as the Marmot Tool Box and Patagonia Refugio, and as sturdy as the TNF Borealis, this is by far the easiest daypack to load. The pictures up top don't show it, but its single main compartment opens so wide that you can take a big item (like a 14" binder) and just place it inside, instead of fitting each corner then sliding it down. And it still has good organization for smaller items, including a laptop sleeve, all accessed through that wide-opening main compartment.
Winner. Well done, Osprey.
