Osprey Stratos 24

This daysack from Osprey benefits from a long, slim shape, and the Aircore concave back system feels incredibly comfortable, no matter what the load. Excellent padding on the hips and shoulder straps. It seems huge for its claimed 24 litres, and is really easy to pack due to the long main compartment zip. The pockets aren’t quite as good as some.

Verdict: A fine zipped option that’s comfortable, stable and really easy to get in and out of. It’s well featured, with some really nice touches, and certainly seems built to last.
