Osprey Raptor 14 Reviews:


Obviously, CamelBak has become quite the household name, everyone has one or knows what they are, even if they call it a "CamelPak." We all know them. But there are several things that I don't think CamelBak does well, or could do better. First, the bladders are nearly impossible to manage when filling with water and trying to close. They flop all over the place, spill water, and just aren't friendly. Couple that with the fact that they have no structure to them, and you find them wadded up in the bottom of your pack, especially if you just use the bladder without the pack. All of that was bearable, several years ago, when the only other options were some crappy water pack from Target. The thing that really turned me off of CamelBak was the design of the packs that the bladders went in. They just weren't good. They were too small, or if they were big enough, too expensive, and had dumb suspension systems, or not enough pockets, or (heaven forbid) just didn't look cool at all.
Now, several years later, other companies have tried their hand at the hydration pack and Osprey/Nalgene have, in my opinion, beat CamelBak. First, the bladder is excellent. It has a handle for holding when filling, is rigid, so it doesn't get all wadded up in the bottom of your pack, and it fits PERFECTLY in the rigid slot in the pack. The valve is a joy to use, although the CamelBak one is just as good. Everything just seems to work, with the exception of screwing the lid on, as others have stated. It's a bit difficult, but one mishap and spilled water fixes that, you just double check it.
But the real attraction to this pack is that a company dedicated to pack design, Osprey, makes the pack. The Raptor 14 is great. Tons of pockets, super comfortable, enough space and features to make it great, and it looks really good. I don't feel dumb wearing it, as I do with CamelBak. Again, just my opinion, but these are way better in almost every way.

i thought about giving it only 4 stars because the lid for the reservoir has some issues, but they are minor. The little plastic strap that attaches the lid to the reservoir was so tight on the lid that it could barely be turned with one hand and prevented the lid from threading properly. As a result, the lid would look like it was in place but leak. i cut the little strap and now it works fine, the threading is still a little funky though. Only other issue is that there's a lot a material in the hip straps after you tighten them. i suppose the excess material COULD get in the way, but it never has for me.
Everything else about the bag is spot on. Fits all the tools and pumps and food and knee pads and helmet and rain jacket and arm warmers. with all that gear, it's pretty tight, but most of us aren't riding our own shuttle for a gnarly downhill run with cold, wet weather that will take all day so you need tons of food and water.
The magnetic catch for the hose is really handy for grabbing a quick drink right before a rough section. and being able to zip out the reservoir instead of having to unthread it through the bag is really nice. Tool pouch and stretch pockets and sunglasses pocket and are really great. Lid lock is plenty secure and best system i've found for keeping cool on the ride up. Also, it shows no wear and tear after a couple wrecks.
It provides as much ventilation as possible while keeping it close to your body for drops, gaps, and all the other fun parts. better than my old camelbak. Bottom line, one of the best bags on the market.

Chris Huntley at Backcountry.com on 05/24/2013

I have really enjoyed my Osprey pack, it fits against the body nicely and stays in place on technical trails. It has plenty of storage and puts up with lots of abuse. I love the magnetic clasp, it makes it simple to store the bit valve when you are not taking a drink and tends to snap back into place without fail.
When I first got the pack the bite valve swivel leaked, it had developed a small crack, I emailed Osprey and they sent me a new one free of charge the next day. A few weeks later the new bite valve developed another crack, so I called them up and they explained that it was a known issue and they just redesigned it, I got the new one the next day which was a slightly beefier version and have not had the problem since (plus every new pack I see in the wild now has the updated version). So all in all the pack is great and the company stands behind it, what more can you ask!

Chris Aidan at Backcountry.com on 05/21/2013

More than stoked I pulled the trigger on this pack. Just started mountain biking last summer and used a CamelBak that only had enough storage for a small multi-tool, my keys and maybe an energy bar. I had to ask my friends to carry the tubes and anything else I might need. With this Raptor 14, you can be a one-man army. I have only taken it on a few day rides, but still have been unable to fill it up completely. The bottom tool-kit pocket is awesome: two tubes, muti-tool, pump and other tiny tools you might need fit with ease. Organized mesh pockets allow you to stash the easy-to-lose items. Extremely comfortable with the hipbelt being great compared to any other similar sized packs I check out. Helmet lock, magnetic hydration hose and ease into every compartment make this the must-have biking pack. Not too big, not too small.... just right.

Andrew Jensen at Backcountry.com on 04/30/2013

Bought this as a gift for a friend...and bought the new Raven 14 (both back in March, 2013). This pack is totally awesome, as the previous reviewer says; EXCEPT now the lids don't want to tighten correctly and cross-thread; you have to 'fiddle' around with it till finally you get it right (ya kinda feel like you've won the lottery, or something when it finally screws on correctly!). They were a bit difficult at first, but now it's a real pain (don't get it just right, the water runs out of course!). Tried to contact Osprey to at least make them aware of this design problem.
(just a note: no, these weren't left in a hot car, nor was hot water put in the bladders; just poor threading on lids). And also for this reason...4 stars instead of 5

Debbie Conti at Backcountry.com on 05/26/2013

Gave this particular pack as a gift...he loves it. I have the woman's version, "RAVEN 14", it's the best out there, as everyone else attest! Even fully loaded on a very hot ride it was still breezy (one small part of the back gets a bit sweaty, but the right jersey and sitting up straight once in awhile,or taking a short break) and you're dry very quickly. Very stable even fully loaded, though the hip straps could be a bit shorter/tighter for smaller ladies; hopefully Osprey will address this on the next issue of the woman's pack. Highly recommended to all!
So guys, tell your lady(s) about the "Raven" by osprey, it really does fit better. Or better yet, get it for her ..."just because" you care!

Debbie Conti at Backcountry.com on 05/03/2013

Could not ask for more.

I scoured the net trying to find the best price for this bag. I spoke to a customer service agent who walked me through determining which fit was best for me (she wasn't all about the sell). I received the bag quickly and in perfect shape. I love it and will be a rockcreek.com customer in the future.
Didds at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 05/05/2013

Thoroughly evaluated this pack before making purchase. Was convinced it would be a great fit for me and not disappointed. This Osprey pack replaced my Camelback. No comparison! The Osprey design, quality and lifetime guarantee made it an easy choice. Plenty of room to carry everything I need for an all day ride.

Great Hydration Backpack

A very good quality, no any issues so far; a little bit pricy, but should last for a long time.
