Equipped with its own 2.5 liter hydration system and incorporating user-friendly features, the streamlined Osprey Skimmer 16 Women’s day pack carries far more comfortably than traditional hydration packs and offers 976 cubic inches of storage capacity.
Unlike traditional hydration bladders, the Osprey reservoir has welded baffles that minimize "barreling" by maintaining a more anatomical shape. Nestled within its own dedicated, externally-accessed compartment, the reservoir is locked securely in place, reducing the sloshing effect that many hydration pack users have come to accept as a necessary evil. The reservoir’s wide mouth is easily accessed through a patented, leakproof sliding closure that further adds speed and efficiency to refills that kids can even do themselves. An integrated PourShield makes the reservoir easy to fill and empty. An anti-microbial treatment prevents mold and bacteria from building up inside the reservoir.
The pack utilizes a foam framesheet with a center stiffener to offer lightweight, movement-mirroring support and stability. The padded BioStretch harness and a removable webbed hipbelt enhance fit and load balance during aerobic activities. An adjustable and elastic sternum strap further ensures a stable fit and a magnetic hose attachment strategically secures the hydration system's bite valve.
Other features include a front bungee-cord gear attachment system and side stretch mesh pockets.

Real Customer Reviews
- Break in straps, then it feels great
Likes: Fit and size are good for hiking/biking, even with snacks, water, extra gear and kids’ stuff. Haven’t been rained on with it yet, but I keep ziplocks around for cell phone. Recommend it for an affordable Osprey day pack with hydration bladder. Although I prefer our Camelbak bladders for price, ease of cleaning, and aftermarket parts.
Dislikes: Straps felt painful on first wear or two, but seemed to break in within a few days. (That’s carrying 2-3 liters of water.)
Not the best bladder system out there, imho.
- Great for casual hiking
Likes: I went to Yosemite in the summer and didn't need a heavy duty bag - i needed something to carry my phone, snacks, charger and water. This bag was perfect for that. It had more than enough water for 2 people for a 5 mile hike in the summer. It was also comfortable and the magnet was a nice touch
Dislikes: Hip belt doesn't stretch as far as I'd like
