Like all Osprey packs this is sleek, beautiful and packed with features. It has a really effective back system which is adjustable via a Velcro panel, and lets your back breathe without impeding your packing. The shoulder straps and hip-belt really are designed for a woman. The hip-fins encircle the torso almost completely and contain two huge pannier pockets – a great feature for a family walk – and there’s a dinky whistle on the chest strap. The main compartment has an internal divider, but it’s fiddly because it uses straps rather than a zip. There are straps everywhere, in fact, and most of them need snipping once you’re fully packed. Otherwise, great.
Back system: AirScape suspension back panel
