Nice and light
June 22, 2011

I looked long and hard between brands and styles, and the airspeed system on the Osprey packs was easily one of my favorites. Having a vent that literally spans my entire back will keep me nice and dry. I debated for a while between the Stratos 24 and 26 and ultimately decided on the 26 because I like the top opening better than the zipper opening on the 24. I also really like the adjustable chest strap, the ability to move them up and down allows for a lot more comfort. The ice axe/hiking pole loops are a nice touch, the only thing I wish it had was more loops to attach odds and ends. I haven't had it for long enough, or put enough miles on it to give it 5 stars, but still seems like the quality is excellent. It's fairly lightweight, but I prefer to have an internal frame and a bit of weight, than save a few ounces and not have the frame. The capacity is some what small, but that's by design, it's still more than ample enough for a day back.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, light weight

I have a large Tarn Blue Strato 26! It is very light weight and looks so great! Actually, I really like AirSpeed system and rain cover. This back is really good for day hiking, look and carry great whatever my adventure! I would like to recommend this backpack!

Great back support although frame is very rigid. The opening is too small making it hard to pack. It does not hold much but being lightweight makes it ideal for day hikes. Also lots of outside small pockets which makes it easy to access frequently used items.
