Hiking

(1/41)

"Oh, and more thing about this particular pocket it’s great for when you want to quickly stash a spare clothing item (or helmet), but don’t really want to be bothered by opening the main compartment of the backpack. Or, if it’s a wet jacket, you don’t want to put it next to the rest of your dry things! Smart, huh? Back to the compression straps. On the Hikelite, these also double as a walking pole attachment point, which is another improvement on some older hiking backpacks Osprey made. You can see how that is supposed to work in the picture"

Comfort

(1/10)

"Bought this a month ago and it's very comfortable! The orange color is very bright which I like and my hiking poles were easy to attach. Good size for a day hike. Before this, I had the osprey tempest 20 and this one feels bigger and the fact that the small pocket is on the top instead of near the back is a smart design."

Size

(1/5)

"Quality and features of the bag are fantastic, as are all of the other Osprey bags I own, just beware of the slimness of this bag."

Strap

(1/3)

"It might be a small thing to some, but I love the removable waist straps! I never knew how much I would enjoy that and will now require that feature for any future day pack I buy."

Compartment

(1/2)

"Zippered Scratch-Free Pocket And Internal Key Attachment Clip I might have mentioned already that I’m a fan of zippered pockets on all types of gear. And, particularly the ones that promise to keep my phone safe, which is exactly what the scratch-free pocket of the Hikelite is promising. It can also keep safe any other smaller items you would want to have more easily accessible; your sunglasses and wallet for example. The key attachment clip is also in this front pocket, and I love it"

Carry-on

(1/2)

"🙌🏻 What I dont like is the lack of compartments. Its really just one big area. I prefer to sort things, especially when using as a carry-on. The larger version of this pack has an outside stuff compartment, so I ordered both"

Zipper

(1/1)

"It needs another small zippered pouch on the front. Most backpacks that I've had have three zippered compartments going from small to large. This has only two. I miss that small front one where I usually put my keys and phone"
