The Osprey Flare is a day pack that is at home on the trail and does even more for your day-to-day commute or travel pack, just kind of a do-everything sort of pack. It’s got a nice, lightweight hipbelt here that will help keep the pack from bouncing on your shoulders. It keeps everything nice and to your back. We’ve also got an adjustable sternum strap here that adjusts on these two sliders. You’ve got ventilated shoulders straps that are padded, very comfortable. The back panel has some strategically placed panels here and some breathable foam on either side of the spine and also in the lumbar area so that you don’t sweat when you carry it. Moving up here, you do have two load-lifter straps. You also have a media pass-through. This goes to the inside pocket that we’ll get to, that way you can pass your headphone cord through from your iPod, iPhone or whatever i-device you might have. The front of the pack has a nice, stretch pocket on the front. You can tuck a jacket down in there. It’s a great place to toss keys, an extra set of gloves or whatever you might have going back and forth. You’ve got some attachment points here if you want to tie anything on to it. You’ve also got these side water bottle pockets. They’re stretch and identical on either side. Keep a snack for later, or a little water. You’ve got your first main pocket here. This has some great organizational features. You’ve got a couple hanging mesh pockets, a couple sleeves for pens and a key clip here. You’ve also got some space down here for whatever you might have in your normal day-to-day travels. The larger body of the pack stands open pretty easily, so you’ve got a nice body here for any type of shell. You do have a document pocket here. It’s kind of sandwiched in between these two and helps stand things up, keep them flat, keep them from getting wrinkled. A nice sleeve in the back could easily accommodate a laptop. You’ve got this hanging pocket here which is where your device would go to pass-through to that headphone port that we talked about earlier. And you’ve got a hanging mesh pocket on the front. It’s a pretty spacious pack. Like I said, this could easily go on the subway with you, through airport terminals, or you could pack it up and go out for the day. One thing I should cover here as well is the nice padded top handle with the reflective Osprey logo. So the Flare is a pack that can do a little bit of everything for you.
