I am doing an unsupported mountain bike ride across South Africa. The Osprey Escapist 32 is a perfect size. It fits all I’ll need comfortably and I love the external hydration pouch. It is comfortable and does not extend above my shoulders and doesn’t interfere with my helmet at all. It is a bit warmer on my back than other backpacks I’ve used as sits flush on your back. Love the hip straps and spacious pouches. I am super happy with my purchase.

Although this pack is designed for bicyclist, it is also just as functional for day hikes. I purchased this pack for my wife. Utilizing the Osprey fit chart was a big help. we almost bought a pack too large.
this pack is perfect for a long day hike. roomy to carry food, water, camera, glasses. Sunscreen, bug spray and some extra layers if the weather turns bad. Comfort was the first priority and his pack has it. next was compartment separation. again this pack has it. the built in rain fly is just a plus. a little icing on the cake if you will. Light weight and yet strong. I wouldn't hesitate to upgrade my day pack.
