Osprey products are great quality, so I knew where to look when I had to purchase a compact, well-built backpack for traveling overseas. I’m so happy I found this gem—it’s just the right size to use as a carryon, to take outdoors or into the city, and the design is awesome (I especially appreciate Osprey’s color options). Unfortunately, this backpack will probably never give out and give me an excuse to buy it in another color.

I bought the Eggplant Purple bag. It is a great color. The bag has a mesh zip pocket in front that I think is great for a water bottle. It has enough room inside for wallet, keys, sunscreen, bug spray, lip balm, and even a light jacket. The pockets inside make it easy to find what you are looking for without dumping everything out. I think it is versatile enough to carry as a casual purse, wear it with the bag in front, or in the back. The padding is very cushy.

Incredible, very light weight and comfortable.

I was easily able to pack as much into this backpack as I have into a carry-on size hard rolling suitcase, and it was reasonably comfortable to carry to and from trains and subways. I appreciated the outer straps that let me squeeze it down to make sure it would be carry-on size, the 3-sided un-zippability of the cover so I could open it up like a suitcase, and the multiple zippered compartments. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I think it was a tiny bit long for my torso, and I belatedly discovered that Osprey has a separate women's Fairpoint 40 that might have fit me better. (I bought this one so close to our departure date that I didn't have time to investigate the women's version.) Even if this might not be the best pack for me to carry all day, it was great for travel.

Ive had this bag for about 8 months and use it as a daily bike to work / commute bag. I always have a latpop, sometimes a camera, clothes, water bottle, snacks, hard drives and other junk stuffed into it. It has always been super comfortable and has even stayed dry when it has rained on me a few times ( not even using the built in cover ). I love it so much that on personal travel / work trips Im able to stuff a week's worth of clothes as well as my usualy tech stuff while on the road. Highly recomend...plus Osprey's warranty / service plan is impossible to beat.

I love this pack. It is small but light and perfect for day hikes. I appreciate the thoughtful design (e.g., seams on the outsides of the shoulder straps so they aren’t rubbing on skin; pull tabs on the zippers). The hydration pack holds 2.5 liters of water, and the fit of the pack is so nice I hardly feel like I am carrying any weight.

I have never submitted a review on anything before, but I must break my silence to weigh in on the Osprey Flapjack. I have had mine for seven years and it is one of my favorite possessions. I get complements on it everywhere I go and when I do, I would make a great Osprey commercial as I expound on the virtues of the bag. I have dragged this bag it all over the world, through five years of college, hauling textbooks, in addition to daily general use. I almost never leave home without it, even if I carry a smaller purse as well for running errands. It contains my life. There's room for everything I need on an average day.I love wearing it cross-body. It puts less strain on my neck and shoulders than a backpack. I can keep an eye on it when in a crowded place by pulling it around to the front of my body. I can run through the airport with it easily. It fits under the seat on a plane. Mine is a light color but it seems to shed dirt. Once a year I submerge it in soapy water and scrub it with a brush, rinse and hang to dry and it comes out looking like new. Oh how I wish all products had this level of quality in design, craftsmanship, durability. I give these bags as gifts and they are a huge hit. Thank you Osprey for making such a great product.

Overall I think this is an amazing pack with some nice features. I bought this to be a combination pack for use as both a carry on pack for flights and a camping pack for long weekends. I just finished my first trip with it and it performed really well. It easily fits in the overhead bin and the zip up cover keeps the straps neatly out if the way and makes the pack very sleek. I also really appreciated the messenger bag strap. It made it easy to slip through the aisle and to quickly grab it from the car and go. The handle straps are also well placed for the same purpose. I was able to fit everything that I needed for a five day trip and could have probably taken a few extra things if needed. For my needs the different compartments were laid out perfectly. My only two complaints would be that the water bottle pockets are in an odd place and you have to choose between the bottom cinch strap or carrying a bottle. I would have also liked it if the messenger bag strap had a padding piece for when you are standing in a line for a long time. Overall, I would definitely buy it again and I expect it will last for a long time.

This is perfect for our 8 year old. I love the size, fit and material. Has space to hold plenty of stuff and I love the place for the hydropack. So convenient for hiking trips.

I looked at a lot of daypacks to find this one. My specs were: it needed a padded waist belt with pockets, room enough for my camera gear when traveling and hiking, adjustable so it fits my torso for optimum weight carry, small enough for international carry-on, under-seat fit, and no bright colors (not recommended for African safaris). I started with manufacturers like Osprey that make packs for the female torso. I read reviews on several packs and then went to REI to be fitted for this pack. I recommend doing that, because their customer helpers really know their packs, benefits of each and they know how to fit you. At first I thought this rode to high up on my torso, but when adjusted and filled, it hit perfectly where it should. I would have purchased it from REI but they didn’t have black, only bright colors. So I went to Zappos, which has fantastic customer service and free shipping. I’ve hooked round clips on the shoulder panels and hooks to my camera, which I hang around my neck. The pack carries the weight of my camera rather than my neck. See picture.

The odd shape requires a different packing style from most conventional backpacks. Fabric didn't seem as durable as other options. Bottom pocket makes it more difficult to stand upright on its own. I like the more subtle branding/logos on this model compared to some that are very in-your-face.

This is a great pack, just the same size as the Pottery Barn Small.

Great. Got it for our 6 year who is kinda small for his age. Fits him a bit big but we knew that was the case. Still works for him great.

Overall, this is a beautiful bag. I purchased this because my son had purchase one for his trip to Europe. I bought the olive green/light blue. Great organization, plenty of room. The only reason I am returning it is because at 5'1" it fits very strangely and very high on my back (even thought I got the XS/S).

Very well made with lots of features and relatively light weight, However, I am returning it. Even though there is adjustment in the back panel, there was no way I could I get it to fit comfortably. I also found the pockets on the waist straps were cumbersome and useless for my needs. I just prefer a simpler pack.

I have a 20L pack from another company that is 90% perfect, but the frame lacks vertical rigidity. The Manta 20L seemed like a good solution, given that I absolutely LOVE my Osprey Porter 30L travel pack. When the pack arrived I was surprised by how heavy and bulky it is for such a small capacity, but I loaded it up and it was quite comfortable. However, I ended it sending it back for one fatal flaw: I simply could not get the hip belt zippers closed one-handed. I use these pockets constantly, they are the most important feature of a daypack for me, and the Manta 20L ones are poorly designed.

Ordered the product based on the online description and style shown. The product that I received looked nothing like the product online. The customer service representative told me that Osprey could not guarantee a product to be the same as which is described on the website.

My partner and I bought these packs over 2 years ago now. They still look brand new, despite using them quite a lot. We have the large size (42 Litres). This size is perfect for us, and we intend on using them when we travel full time. I only have a few issues with this bag. 1. The laptop compartment is at the front of the bag. This changes how the weight is distributed. It should be against your back. 2. The water bottle holders at the front are pretty useless. If your bag isn't completely full, you can use them. But with the straps going over the top, it's still not very convenient or secure. 3. I wish there were more compartments for little pieces. Apart from those issues, I love these bags and do recommend them.

Just returned from several weeks in France and used the Daylite everyday. It was my personal bag on the plane and my urban bag while traveling cities. I loved that the Daylite securely fit over my carryon suitcase extendable handle when walking through airports or to hotels. The pockets were very adequate and the pack was comfortable as a sling over one shoulder or carried on my back. My one big complaint was that my small cycling water bottles were not secure in the side pockets. They would often fall out when I took the pack off. Osprey should fix this with a small cinchable strap as they have on some other packs. I know I could purchase the water bladder but I don't care for those in an urban setting. I could also put a water bottle inside the pack but that's also not very desirable.
