User Review: Osprey Daylite
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: 30$ on sale
Small and perfect for short day hikes.
- Comes with a whistle in back straps
- Hydration compatible
- Comfortable fit on hips and shoulders
- Back panel ventilation
- No secure side pockets
- A little small for longer hikes
- Too small to fit much water
It is perfect for a short day hike to hold raingear, emergency and snacks, but it is missing some zippered side pockets for easy access items like chapstick or cell phone. The side pockets do not stretch and placing water bottles on the sides does not leave much room for stuff inside.
It is hydration compatible on the other hand, which leaves the side pockets free for other gear. The back panel allows fair ventilation and the pack sits well on the hips and the shoulders making it comfortable to move around. But the perfect hidden bonus is the whistle on the back straps.
All in all it is great for a short light hike.
