Built for fast-moving day hikes and summit assaults, the Osprey Stratos 24 pack combines carrying comfort, ventilation, and organizational features to deliver lightweight, technical performance.
Employing Osprey's Airspeed Suspension the pack’s tensioned mesh back panel provides flexible support and breathability to combat heat build-up between your back and the pack body. Both the hipbelt and harness straps are padded with die-cut foam and covered in mesh to enhance comfort and optimize fit. Adjustability in the harness, load-lifter straps, and sternum strap enhance fit.
The 1465 cubic inch capacity packbag can be reached via either of two zippered access points. There are additional zippered pockets on the front and the top of the pack that provide organizational options. Zippered hipbelt pockets keep small gear and trail essentials close at hand.
Other features include a single Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment on the shoulder strap, a single ice axe attachment with a stowable bungee tie-off, and an integrated rain cover. A lined internal sleeve and drinking tube pass-throughs make the pack hydration compatible (hydration system sold separately).

Real Customer Reviews
- Almost the perfect daypack
Likes: I love the Stratos line of packs. The suspended back panel is possibly the best on the market offering a supremely comfortable fit and excellent ventilation yet doesn't feel bouncy far away from your body. At 24L it's about the perfect size for most quick day hikes, picnics, or just a day out.
I like that they now incorporate an adjustable harness too so you can really dial in the fit. Not sure yet if I'm totally sold on the vertical zippered pocket or not though. Kind of nice but I wonder if a mesh pouch would have been more practical.
Dislikes: The one major gripe I had with the last version of the Stratos 24 was that the mesh top pocket (where you end up putting the majority of your small items) is very poorly placed if you use your pack with a hydration bladder. The pocket hangs down well below where the bladder sleeve is right in the way. If the mesh pocket is empty it's a minor pain to pull it out of the way to get your bladder in and out of the sleeve. If you have stuff in that pocket, it's sometimes impossible.
I was hoping osprey would have redesigned this in the new version, but alas, no. Still just as much of a pain. It's a real bummer too because this could be such a fantastic pack but if you're like me and more often than not hike with a 3L water bladder, this could drive you nuts.
