Your obsession for bagging all the peaks within a 50-mile range of your home is equaled only by your desire to find the right day pack. Well, look no more. The Osprey Stratos 24 Backpack is the perfect solution for peak bagging and day hiking year-round. It's made of gutsy high denier nylon, with a sturdy lightweight frame that allows for plenty of support and ventilation and enough interior space to fit all the extra clothing and food you need for a long day on the trail or a night of camping. The Osprey Stratos 24 is a front loader with side mesh pockets, zippered hip belt pockets, and a small harness pocket big enough for an mp3 player or cell phone. There's an internal sleeve that's specially designed for a hydration unit and you can run the tubing conveniently all the way up to your mouth using the harness straps as guides. Other features on the Stratos 24 Backpack include an ice axe attachment and an integrated raincover.


Despite your busy schedule, each week you're up playing on the mountain whether it's hiking, mountain biking, or climbing. The Osprey Stratos 24 Backpack is ready to take on whatever you're doing up there. With this pack, you can fit all the gear you need for a day at the crag, on the trail, or at the park with some room for snacks too. The designers at Osprey shaped this pack's LightWire alloy frame in such a unique way that it optimizes your load's balance as well as enhances the ventilation system with the help of the AirSpeed back panel. Add that to the sewn-in spacer mesh at both the waist-belt and the shoulder straps, and you're ready to tackle anything in the mountains without a sweat. The waist-belt utilizes ErgoPull straps for an ideal fit, and the panel access allows you to get anything out of your pack with ease regardless of where it is. This pack's blend of high-tenacity nylon and 420HD nylon overlays will handle all your rocky scrapes and dirt dragging for years, and Osprey even integrated a rain cover so you can continue your mountainous adventures in poor conditions.

The Stratos 24 also features sleeping pad straps that you can remove if sleeping outside isn't part of the agenda, side mesh-woven pockets for water bottles, zippered pockets at the waist-belt for any small item you want quick access to like lip balm or sunscreen, and zippered stash pockets at the top and front for anything you want to keep separate from your gear like your keys, wallet, and phone. Both the upper compression and lower InsideOut straps compress all your gear so it doesn't move around when you're riding, and there are attachments for your trekking poles at the shoulder straps and an ice tool below the pack so you're ready for adventures throughout the year.

Positive Reviews:

This day pack is awesome! I love it and will continue buying from Osprey. Most of us probably know what's already good about it from researching and actually owning it, so I'm just going to point out some minor flaws. These flaws doesn't really affect the experience of the pack much but it's there. The pockets on the shoulder straps are too small and narrow if you want to put your phone in it. Other than that, it fits energy bars. Another issue is that the pack tends to rise up high on your waist. The side waist pockets straps are way too long. It'll dangle down to your knees so I have to constantly fold each straps and tie a knot to keep it short. Lastly, it's not really a big deal, if you stuff a hydro pack, it'll take up some space since the pack. All of these issues IMO are minor. No big deal.

This is my first Osprey pack and I am not disappointed. The Air Speed Suspension is a really nice feature as I sweat a lot. There is, surprisingly, a lot of room in this pack. I could easily use this pack all year round. The hip belt pockets are a nice feature as well. Shoulder pocket is really too small and wouldn\'t much more than a compass or lip balm. Not much padding on the shoulder straps and hip belt but the lightness of the pack makes up for it. Loops on the zippers are a nice touch as well.

I love it! The airmesh back is great for people who sweat (who doesn't?). The rainfly is great but takes up a little room, so I may exchange for one size larger. I am 5'2", 120# and got a small - which is the correct size. Have not used the stow-and-go pole straps, but that was something I really liked about this pack. Love the hip pockets and the shoulder strap pocket.

Nothing comes close

This is an awesome backpack, with every feature you could possibly want. It's a little heavy, but the hoop frame gives you a lot of support for your load. The ventilation is absolutely fantastic.

Why would you buy any other brand when there's Osprey?
Andrew S at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 01/01/2014

Love it!

I bought this for my son for Christmas so he has not used it yet. I tried it on & know he will love it. I personally love Osprey, I have the Kyte in women's style & love it.

Awesome Piece of Engineering

EMS pro set me up with this hiking pack...man are they good... great investment if you are serious about hiking.

Happy enough but for the price...I am reserving judgement as I have only used it 1 time....

Negative Reviews:

I bought this bag before going to Europe to study abroad, thinking I'd use it for weekend excursions. I wouldn't buy it again and am going to attempt to return it now that I'm back in the US. My main complaint is that the rigid, curved back (while cool and comfy) severely limits the size and shapes of items you can put in the bag. For example, my 15-inch laptop barely fits, even when it's just in a neoprene sleeve. With the laptop (or any other larger, rigid or semi-inflexible object, paperback books, shoes, etc.) in the bag, it is super difficult to fit anything else in there. A big disappointment to me since I blog and wanted to be able to bring my laptop with me to different places. Also disappointing is that when the bag's main compartment is full, the side mesh pockets don't stretch open far enough to fit a water-bottle of any size. In short, this bag would probably be great if you're carrying nothing but clothing. If not, I recommend looking for something else.

Neutral Reviews:

Over this pack is very comfortable once you get use to the frame resting on your lower back. Shoulder straps are super comfy compared to gregory's z30. Air speed is good but sticks out too far, making the pack hard to pack and access issues. The mesh side pockets are pretty much useless. They are too tight to put a 16oz water bottle without a struggle, most ppl carry 32oz . I guess you can just use a bladder but then it eats up about 30% of your space. The airspeed sticks out too far IMHO and into the pack itself. Gregory's z30 leaves about an inch between support rods and pack so bladder has some more room. The extra pockets are pretty useless also once the pack is full since they rest right on the pack and have no give to them. If they stuck out a little or designed differently then it would be better. If you only half pack your pack, then this is a great pack but then I would just suggest getting a smaller pack.
