I got this pack for free from a retailer for my birthday. The OSPREY Halo backpack is a 900 cubic small daypack. I use it outside of work carrying. My bulging wallet, water for the family, keys, 1st aid kit, lightweight rain gear, and snacks. I call it a EDC pack. It is comfortable to wear, there is no strenum strap.
The couple issues I have
1) because of my large torso length is that the waist strap becomes a strenum strap on me. The kids and the wife the waist strap is used as such. If you are tall this prouduct feature will not work for you.
2) the water bottle pockets are designed for soda pop can diameter. This will not accomdate a 32 oz Nalgene bottle.
Overall I have been very happy with this pack taking out and about after work to the gym, shopping, treks to the zoo, and just everyday life.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Osprey has completed the ring of eco-friendly construction with the Halo, a sustainable-resource using urban pack made of 79% recycled content. Recycled PET - a thermoplastic resin made from ground up soda bottles and water - forms the basis for the main body, mesh pockets, binding tape, buckles, fabric zipper pulls and even webbing. All this, plus Osprey's famous intuitive, useful design creates a backpack you'll feel good about stuffing the pieces of your daily grind into.
