No need to choose between a smaller or larger pack, this one has both. It can hold loads up to 50 pounds.
The big pack is too big to use as a carry on while flying.
Even though this pack is smaller than some others on our list, it can be attached to larger Osprey packs as an optional pod pack.
Doesn't attach easily to all Osprey packs, so make sure to try it first.
Comes with tons of unique features to keep hikers comfortable on longer, tougher treks over the course of a few days. Snug inside compartment making it good for 3-4 day trips.
Ventilated padding on belt and shoulders can be constricting.
No frills, lightweight day pack (weights only 3.2 ounces) that fits lots of essential items at a super affordable price.
Customers commented that the grey and black color options are misleading.
