Made from top of the line materials and featuring an integrated raincover, the Escapist 25 is both bombproof and weatherproof.

Anchored by a BioStretch™ harness and hipbelt, this low-profile pack is designed to keep the load balanced when descending rough terrain. The Airscape™ mesh backpanel provides ventilation when you’re grinding up the pass.

Access to the main compartment comes via a convenient zippered front panel so you can see all your gear at a glance. A divider at the base of the pack provides segregated storage for stuff you want to prevent from commingling—post-ride clothing or perhaps a pair of sandals—with the rest of your gear.

Additional features include a myriad of external storage options starting with three handy stretch mesh pockets—one on each side and another in the front. The hipbelt has twin zippered pockets and there’s another similar sized pocket on the shoulder strap. A zippered external front pocket keeps valuables secure and a non-scratch glasses pocket protects your shades. The external hydration sleeve makes for easy reservoir refills.

If you’re out after sunset, this pack features reflective accents and a blinker light attachment point for extra visibility.

Finally...the (almost) perfect pack !


This is my first Osprey pack, after trying other well known brands. Like many of you reading this, I am always looking for just the right pack. After purchasing the Osprey Escapist 25, I feel like my searching is over. This is such a well designed pack, with many features not found on other highly touted bags. For instance, I love the divided main compartment, which gives the pack a smaller feel, when not heavily loaded. My previous pack was the same size, and from a very competent company, but when it was not fully loaded, everything piled up way down in the bottom of the pack. With the divided compartment on the Escapist, things are closer to the top of the bag, making it actually feel smaller. I also like the fact that the side mesh pockets (typically used for bottles, etc.) have straps to cinch them down, holding the contents in place. The included rain cover is nice, and the pockets are plentiful. Add to that the comfort, light weight, and versatility, and this seems like the perfect pack for most any situation, except for long, extended hiking and camping trips which require much more space. Thank you Osprey, for a well thought out, highly functional product.

Good for day hikes and light weekender hikes


I got this pack as a Christmas gift and have given it moderate usage since then. I've done at least one day hike a week and a few weekend hikes with the pack. It packs easily for these light loads. The only complaint I would have is that it can be difficult to adjust at first, granted this was my first serious hiking pack so I guess there is a learning curve. After a little bit of time fidgeting with it I was able to find how it best adjusted to my fit and it has been quite comfortable ever since. If you're going to be doing light hikes definitely look into this pack

Great pack


I owned my first ospery escapist for 5 years and wore it nearly everyday as I carried my laptop in it to work and hiked and shopped with it on weekends. Incredibly durable and the most comfortable packpack that I have ever had. I just exchanged it as there was a slight tearing near the top at the handle and near the bottom, this due to the heavy loads. I did not use it for mountain-biking but was glad to have a place to hang my helmet as I commuted by bike.



Not durable - bag will 'delaminate'


My pack lasted 4 years, then it started to 'delaminate'. This makes the pack near unusabIe, because everything that comes into contact with this peeled off lamination will be soiled. A pack that last this long (and mine has never seen any heavy use) is the opposite of true environmental sustainability. I definitively do not recommend this bag.

Great Pack for Travel and Day Hiking


I bought this pack for day hiking in the white mountains. Plenty of organization, and enough space for carrying around whatever I need to go out on a day of hiking, traveling, etc. Very high quality and durability. One feature I especially like is the divided main compartment with a removable divider. It's great for storing wet or dirty clothes, or whatever you want quick access to.
