I wanted to wait until I put some mileage on this pack before I reviewed it. And after having used it for about 40 miles on my last 4 day hikes, I can only say that this is the best pack I've ever owned!
Last week I went to Mount Tammany and Sunfish Pond on the AT in New Jersey. This entailed about 11 1/2- 12 miles. The trails I followed also necessitated two ascents and descents of approximately 800 vertical feet per ascent and descent. I carried 5 liters of water, my Primus stove, Brunton cookset, Garmin Etrex, digital camera, first aid kit, food, extra shirt, and of course my mascot, Einstein. I probably had about 20 pounds along and hardly ever noticed the pack on my back.
I have a Mountainsmith Dayhiker which I reviewed a couple months ago. Nice pack, but it doesn't feel nearly as comfortable on my back. The Osprey moves as you move and fits like a glove. The mesh storage in the hip belts gets a big "thumbs up" and the Airspace mesh back is an absolute joy. I also own an Atmos 65 which I absolutely love, but hey, let's face it, because of work and domestic confines,I'll get more use out of the 35.
If you're looking for a capable and comfortable day pack, you can't do much better than this baby!
