Seen it before? Think again. We put the same blood and sweat into our Active Everyday Series as we do our most technical packs, because you spend more time heading to the store, work or school than you do playing outside. If you don’t, we’d like to hear your secret. Quit trying to escape your everyday life; instead add a dollop of adventure to make the mundane magnificent. Durable fabrics, contemporary aestheticsand features that make your life easier define this anything-but-normal pack series.
A front organization pocket created to be the best in variability and accessibility of small items used throughout the day. Featured with internal small mesh pockets for keys, phone, mouse and other larger items, plus the standard pen and business card slots. Side stretch mesh pockets on the 24/Seven packs are great for storing many items you need access to, such as your water bottle, phone or snacks.
Designated laptop and tablet sleeves
All 24/Seven Series adult packs have padded and safe storage for your laptop and tablet. The hanging padded sleeve ensures that your laptop is not being slammed on the ground each time it is set down, and the weight of the laptop remains close to the body in the rear backpanel sleeve to make sure the carry is stable and comfortable.
Got one in 2011 for a high school backpack. I tried different bags and brands. This bag has been my Go to Bag every time. Other bags are too stiff and rough, they easily tear at the straps, discolors with outdoor usage, or have major zipper problems. I have used this backpack for school, hikes, commuting, sports bag, air travel, road trip, and military. Been in the cold Northeast, California desert, and Carolina humidity. I've beaten, thrown, washed, dropped, and overloaded it. This is a great backpack model with the only things to improve on my older model is reinforce the top grab handle, make the bottom of the bag durable like adding a rubber layer, and add loops to effectively add items but without off balancing the backpack. I would recommend this pack to someone who wants a long lasting bag that will out last any trend or fad.
My Qasar Review
I bought the pack for daily use to and from place of work, and mainly to carry my 15" ROG laptop. It has plenty of space to fit the laptop, papers and folders, the charger, and all my assorted EDC's(extra clothes, towel, vacuum flask, keys, Beats headphones, books, etc.)
My main gripe is on 3 things: the shoulder straps tend to give me shoulder burn (also experienced this on my Kestrel 38), the main compartment i wish would open up more, and the laptop compartment needs a lock or some fastening to keep it in place because it tends to move around as you walk. I love that the pack is lightweight, although could use a little more protection and thickness at the base, and a little more color contrast in the colorway. It has been with me for only 4 days and i love using it, and i've set aside my 5.11 and Mountain Hardwear in favor of the Quasar. That said, i'm a great fan of Osprey packs, the Kestrel was my first and used it in a great many excursions local and abroad. This Quasar is sure to get its fair share as well.
Great pack, I recieved this as a fathers day gift.
Great pack, I really like it allot.
Almost perfect pack for me
This is my do-it-all backpack: daypack, camping, & airport travel. I was looking for a pack that does NOT have a separate zipper compartment for a laptop and yet still accommodates a laptop. I want all the space I can get in a smallish backpack. A separate zippered compartment just for a laptop adds too much bulk and weight. I never knew this feature would be so difficult to find. Thank you, Osprey! This Quasar does just that. It has a cushioned laptop sleeve inside the main pocket. The front smaller pocket has an organizer for all your gadgets, pens, etc. There is an additional smaller front/top quick-grab pocket for a phone or glasses. Side pockets accommodate standard size disposable water bottles and larger size Nalgene type bottles. There are two features I wish this pack had: I wish the front had a stretch-pocket rather than the pull-cord thing. And I wish the main compartment fully opened "clam shell" style. That would make it easier to pack for travel. Otherwise, this is the perfect pack for me.
I really like this pack
I teach school and bought this pack to carry my laptop and all the usual briefcase stuff. I love the feel of the pack when I carry it. If I didn't need to keep it mostly clean for work it would be my day pack for everything I do from hiking with the scouts to hunting in my woods. When I retire in a couple of years it will still be my daily pack.
Great Backpack for commuting on foot or by bike
Use this for college. Has great & easy access to computer pouch (I use 15" macbook but 17" should also fit easily). Sometimes I walk and other days I take a bike...cinches down very nicely when I ride my bike and does not bounce around at all like my old backpack. Love the easy access to all pockets and the extra handle on the top. This is the perfect college backpack. Would not have worked as well in HS when I had to carry a ton of books for 5-6 classes all day but it has more than enough room for my 2-3 classes a day for college plus my notebook computer.
No better everyday pack!!
This is the perfect pack for everyday carry. My second Osprey pack to date. This is my go-to bag whether I am carrying for duty, deployment or just around town. This pack is lightweight, ergonomical and carries all the items required for my full pace of life. I have spent years trying to find the perfect pack for work, leisure and everyday that is not bulky, heavy and will provide comfort while carrying for long hours. This certainly makes the mark. Thank you Osprey, job well done with this rucksack!
Well thought out and well made
I'm a photographer and this has recently been my go to carry on and day exploration camera and gear bag when traveling. I use liners for the camera gear and pack food, water and jacket and hat in the pack. Everything fits and all the compartments, zippers etc work well and it's light.
