Amazing quality backpack!
After discussing best options with some hikers regarding backpacks, i decided to try both osprey & low alpine .
I can honestly say the low alpine backpack was by far the best!
It was very comfy all around & the waist band strap fits perfect to the point that you feel like nothing is there 'osprey as nice as they are felt heavier around the waist'
There is a side zip so you can reach inside your bag without having to open up the top & dig down, making things so much easier!
I love the fact that you can extend the capacity of this bag from a 33L to a 45L making it better for various types of trips without a limited bag space.
It has great easy to use pole straps where they are held firmly.
The rain cover has an extra strap to secure ot on when its windy 'osprey didnt have this so easily lost in high winds'
This truly is a well designed back pack thats light, comfortable & durable.
5star from me! :-)
