DetailsWith a clean, streamlined profile, ample storage capacity (3661 cubic inches), a broad range of adjustability and an affordable price, the Osprey Volt 60 is ideal for value-conscious backpackers looking for reliable lightweight performance.An aluminum LightWire peripheral frame transfers weight to your hips and a cushioned harness, padded hipbelt and foam framesheet combine to further enhance fit and comfort. The harness provides easy adjustment to accommodate torso lengths ranging from 17"-22" in length. Fit-on-the-Fly adjustability in the hipbelt ensures a comfortable, supportive fit for waists ranging from 28"-44". An adjustable sternum strap further aids in stability and enhances fit. Side compression straps allow you to cinch down the Volt 60 to keep contents safely in place and aid in load control.The top-loading packbag is accessed beneath a top lid that can be extended when necessary to handle overloads. A zippered lower compartment grants access to a dedicated sleeping bag compartment. A divider between the two compartments allows for the separation and organization of gear but can also be opened to convert the Volt 60 to a single oversized compartment. A large stretch woven front "shove it" pocket is perfect for stashing extra layers or any gear that you may want to access quickly. Zippered hipbelt pockets keep essentials close at hand.Other features found on the Volt 60 include dual ice axe loops, trekking pole attachments, side mesh water bottle pockets and removable straps for lashing sleep pads. A lined, exterior compartment makes the Volt 60 hydration compatible and enables you to refill your hydration reservoir (sold separately) without having to access the interior of the pack.The Osprey Volt 60 backpack is available in your choice of colors.

- Excellent budget backpacking pack, lots of space
Likes: Took this on my first backpacking trip to Havasuapi in Arizona for four days/three nights. Fit all my gear perfectly and it was a pretty comfortable and super adjustable pack. Perfect for a beginner backpacker.
Dislikes: I didn't like putting too much stuff in the stretchy mesh pockets for too long since I think they will easily stretch out.
Likes: Perfect. Comfortable. Just the right size.
Dislikes: The sleeping bag/pad strap at the bottom could be a little longer.
Likes: This is another great Osprey Packs product. It is amazingly lightweight and very little frills. Just what I was looking for. It holds all of my gear for an extended weekend trip and still leaves room. This should hold up to many years of backcountry abuse like my other Osprey Pack.
Dislikes: I wish that Osprey would have made the bottom compression straps their inside out straps. It is very annoying having my half full water bottles falling out of the front. The simple remedy is just to place the bottle in from the top.
Likes: Light weight, easily adjusted, large hip pockets and plenty of room for gear. The external hydration sleeve was a great feature too, and the price was unbeatable.
Dislikes: So far it's all good, but time will tell.
