Osprey Stratos 36
Price Paid: $135
I bought this bag after having the 24 and thinking it might have been better since it was a top loader. It is a lot bigger than the 24 and overall I liked it!
But it was too big for a day hike and too little to hold all my climbing gear. Would be ideal for a overnighter, the big comfy straps feel great! and the cross breeze you get is phenomenal!
A lot of pockets for good orgo. and again it comes in that wonderful green color!
The only complaint I had really was the arch again being really big, it gives you great cross venting, but squeezes a bladder and cuts on volume.
