However, its lightweight, simplicity, durability, comfortable carry and price has proven to be wildly popular, and today their popularity is undeniable. While the Daylite® and Daylite® Plus continue to serve well as add-on packs for traveling and more, they shine on their own with incredible versatility and are now available in an even more robust color palette than before.

Not for short torsos

Seems like a great pack but I can't wear it. My other Osprey packs are XS/S and are super comfortable. The way this is designed, the handle on top gets pulled to horizontal and cuts into my neck if I tighten the straps so that the pack sits properly. If I wear it lower so the handle isn't a problem, the hip belt is several inches too low.

Not for me.

I really really wanted to love this backpack. My husband The two biggest issues I have had with this pack are 1. It's not boxy enough for me and 2. The side pockets are essentially useless. This backpack is really frustrating for me to load. I mainly use it going to and from work, sort of as a purse, in a way. It carries my planner, my breast pump (I'm currently breastfeeding), my water bottle, pens/markers, lotion, headphones, and an umbrella. I'm frustrated at least once a day by the annoyance of having to prop the stupid pack up against something because it is ALWAYS falling forward. You can't prop this thing up and easily get in and out of it. It's always laying on its front or back like a limp noodle. The "curve" of the bag doesn't allow me to fit things in properly. I feel like I'm stacking everything on top of one another rather than being able to organize the inside in an easy way. The straps are too thin too, and get twisted when I go to throw the pack on. My water bottle falls out of this backpack almost every single day when I get out of my car, throw it on to leave work, and even when I'm trying to stuff it in there it won't allow me unless I force it. (I use a hydroflask.) Today was the last straw when my water bottle flopped out of the backpack onto the ground and broke the lid off. UGH! Other random things: there's this weird front pocket that is open to everything that I find pretty useless. I've never used the laptop sleeve but I wouldn't trust the backpack to protect it.

Best pack for day hikes, travel, cycling

I got this pack for my birthday years ago. Since then, I have beat the living Daylight (pun intended) out of it, & it still looks & performs like it did when it was new. I operate in tough environments & weather conditions, & as such need gear that will preform. I have used this pack in rain, snow, sleet, light hail, high winds, storms, thrown it down on to rocks, sprayed it with mud and smacked it with branches mountain biking just to name some of the more common abuse I put it through. I mostly use it now for camping & travel, either using it as I go from class to class at BSA summer camp or if I go off for a short hike with fellow scouts, or with me in the cabin of a car/plane to hold what I need for the drive/flight. I used to use this pack daily for carrying my stuff to/from school, & then from class to class, as well as to go shopping. I don't use it for that anymore not because it was not good enough, it did great, but because I upgraded to panniers (although I still use it to go from class to class in school). It should be mentioned that I also used it for day hikes. I will also use it for day or multi day trips out to more touristy places on occasion. On the one negative I noted, the side mesh stretch water bottle pockets don't hold water bottles. However, you can very easily put yours in the outside shove it fabric pocket. I put the compression strap through the loop on the lid of my water bottle. However, I have used them to nest my trekking poles in, which I then anchored to the side of my pack with the compression strap.

Great all around pack

Great overall pack. I have used this for work where it fits a 15inch macbook pro, traveled with it and used it for hikes up to 8 miles long.

FITS EVERY NEED FOR A DAYHIKER

5

The Daylite Plus is a great pack for dayhikes. I carried two water bottles seated in the mesh pockets with the tops anchored by straps placed thru loops on the bottles - perfect. Plenty on room for snacks, maps, first aid and headlamps. I made paracord adjustable straps to attach my trek poles on either side when they were not in use. We hiked the Mighty Five in Utah and the Daylite Plus and Daylite were great packs for my wife and me.

Only two things I don't like about this pack

3

I wanted something I can take with my hiking and everyday to work as my everyday needs pack. The side bottle pockets, don't hold bottles, everything j put in there falls out. The outside front pocket gets caught on everything and I find that annoying. Everytime I put it in and out of my locker it snags. I've gotten it caught on serveral other things. If the pack had those two problems figured out.. I'd love it. It really is the perfect size/weight/comfort for my every day needs.

Just what I wanted

This is a great little pack it replaced a 25/year old North Face. It holds my laptop/tablet in a padded pouch and has plenty of room for papers etc while business traveling. After business is over it works great for day bikes. It will hold extra clothing, snacks, etc. the external pockets are great. The stretchy ones are too small for taller 20 oz water bottles, so I bought a fat short 16 oz bottle. For longer more serious use, I bought the 2 L hydro slip in pack. A perfect fit and just like the 3L comes with the magnet. Love this pack. I also have a 24 L Stratus (sp?). Love it ad well.

A little too big for small folks

Great for carrying light loads while hiking. Pockets are very accessible and all materials seem pretty durable. Unfortunately, the frame is a little too long for my torso (5'2") so is fairly uncomfortable as the shoulder straps connect at the top and feels fairly suffocating just behind my neck.

Side pockets need review

3

I can only join the chorus about the side pockets for water bottles. I have lost 3 water bottles so far with this pack (you'd think I'd have learnt my lesson, but no...). I thought by using a taller bottle that would fit under the strap I'd be fine but that fell out too. I really hope that the next revision has deeper and tighter side pockets!

What are the side pockets for?

3

I typically used this bag as a day pack when I went for walks or small hike where I didn't need much gear and didn't have much issues at first, the bag is light and has tons of compartments in all locations but here is when the problems began. I had to do a lot of traveling on foot for my job when we have to go to the city, I figured this bag would be perfect well I was wrong, the first issue is the side compartments what is the purpose of them as my water bottles grew bigger in volume so did the problems with keeping them in the side pouches. For some odd reason they cut low and don't secure bigger water bottles well especially if you do not strap the kangaroo pouch buckles through the loops, so I ended up up not using the side pouches and and taking up space in the kangaroo pouch for the water instead ( I used to keep my first aid kit and headphone case there) secondly as the weight of the items in the pack increases so does the discomfort level of the suspension straps, the plastic strip that secures the sternum strap just dig into my armpits and causes so much discomfort. The straps deffinely maintain breathablity but I cannot keep my sternum strap buckled because I constantly take the bag on and off, I typically walk 8 miles or more a day and the backpack is on me from 6:00am to 5:00pm so I put the word daypack to use, I only carry paperwork portable cell charger a security screw driver and a small crescent wrench inside. The bag is extremely durable I will give credit where it is due and holds up really well with rain the zippers barely ever snag and the seams hold perfectly, this bag is amazing for light gear but once you start adding things that's where you notice the flaws. I wish there where just a few changes to the bag In those areas I mentioned and this bag without a doubt will become one of the best out there, I have kelty bags that cost more and aren't performing to expectations, and the osprey warranty if it holds true to the saying is top notch!
