User Review: Osprey Stratos 24
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99
This is a quality pack that will last for a long time.
- Excellent ventilation
- Doesn't carry weight great
This is a great durable pack for those day long hikes as you would expect since it is a day pack. Its air flow back is very comfortable in the summer but it does push the pack a few inches off your back which can cause some back pain by the end of a hike if you're carrying a heavier load.
It isn't too big of a problem since I usually don't carry too much with me, but it is something to think about if you carry things for a child or something like that. If you're looking for something to just throw some food, water, and a jacket in for a 5-6 hour hike though, then this pack is great.
