I've owned osprey packs before however none of them compare to not only the comfort of the Questa but also the versatility. I'm a wildlife biology major with a outdoor recreation and geomantics minors so my needs are rather simple in needing something that can not only handle typical student days but also days where I'm lugging out my gear and laptop to work out in the field. I wanted a pack that would be versatile enough to come with me into graduate school doing research while still being practical for the student setting then also being able to go out for hikes or kayaking trips out on the weekends (because, lets be honest, Osprey packs aren't the cheapest around so I want bang for my buck). I feel like the Questa is the jack-of-all-trades pack I wanted, needed, and, dare I say, dreamed of despite being incredibly hesitant to order since there was very little I could find in way of reviews on the pack.
I debated going for the unisex/male Quasar pack for the more natural colors but since I needed something shorter for my short torso (I'm 5'7 very solid with broad shoulders, wide hips, with a short torso, long legs, and too big of a butt) and often packs don't fit me correctly. I was concerned that the Questa would be fit for more petite women rather than someone who has the shoulders of a football player and whose bone structure is anything but petite. However the fit of the Questa is perfect for my short back and I could see it working wonderfully for someone much smaller in shoulder range than I since the shoulder straps sit closer together where they attach to the actual pack (ideal for smaller frames and not having straps fall off) but there is such a large amount that you can adjust so it sits extremely comfortably on me.
Someone made a complaint about the chest strap being too low however for myself between a D to DD in breast size I found it rather comfortable seeing as the chest strap is adjustable in height on where it sits on your chest. The bells and whistles on this thing are fantastic (and yes there actually is a whistle on the chest strap) and I especially enjoy the tightening straps on the side for bucking down the interior of the pack so if you are caring a lot of gear or just a few things you can make sure the items inside are not flopping around and minimizing the amount of space you take up unnecessarily. Also the thing I was probably far more excited about than I should have been was the fact that my 32oz nalgene water bottle fit completely and securely within either of the side pockets and you can adjust to fit smaller or larger bottles as well (or even large jars if that's how you swing).
Someone also made a comment about the straps being uncomfortable however the one I received had the typical mesh associated with all osprey packs I've had. I consider myself to have very sensitive skin as well but I've had no issue with the straps and actually find the mesh with an amazingly comfortable amount of padding to be great. Actually with the fit and padding I can load it up with my full semester load (4-5 medium thickness textbooks, large 5 subject notebook, and my laptop) and it really feels as if I have barely anything on my back which is wonderful for long days walking around campus. So far this has been the heaviest I've carried in it however which is less than I usually pack for a day hike (you could possibly do a day or two over night if you pack smart but I still would say that is less than the weight of my semester load). Its also slightly stiff backed (thicker than my Osprey Talon) which is very comfortable with padding and offering extra protection for a laptop.
Now the two big external downfalls. It is not sold as water resistant and therefore I wholeheartedly believe that the addition of a rain cover included in the pack similar to the Osprey Momentum would be a wonderful idea. In addition, the Momentum's inclusion of a wet pocket would be fantastic for the Questa design and I'm actually very disappointed that its not included since it would be highly advantageous to the jack-of-all-trades design. A second downfall is that the bottom of the pack doesn't appear to be very much reinforced beyond the same fabric that covers the majority of the pack. I haven't found anything on their site saying its reinforced for extra durability which has me concerned over the survivability of the pack in the future from wear and tare.
Holy crap there is so much space and so many pockets. I wasn't anticipating how much room I would have available to me with this pack and was even worried it might either have too many unnecessary pockets leading to little space or either enough space but not enough pockets for efficient organization. Yet, Osprey astounded me with this pack.
First, there is the large main compartment to the back of the pack. Starting from the back of the pack and moving out there is a large padded section (that can also be used for a water bladder with a small opening at the top typical to Osprey which I adore so much <3) or may be used for a laptop. I have a 13 inch that I use for school but there is easily plenty of room for up to my old 17-incher. Since I have a small laptop that means I can also use the second padded pocket for my laptop while using the large padded section for the water bladder. This, I assume could be used for a tablet. I have been using it to store my large stack of scientific papers I'm reading for a research project and they fit rather snuggly and safely. Then on the outside of this smaller padded pocket there is a slightly smaller zippered padded pocket (possibly for smaller tablets or something else?). Then there is the large main compartment which, by adjusting the outside straps, can extend or contract depending on your need. This large compartment is huge! I also l love that it opens up til about halfway down the pack so if I'm storing a change of clothes, books, poncho, etc I always seem to have more than enough room. Then on the inside of this there is a small reversed zipper pocket that extends halfway down the large pocket. I've been using this for storing bathroom essentials.
The next section of the pack (after zippering up the largest pocket) is an organizational pocket. There is a clip for your keys (typical for Osprey), three top storage pockets (one of which is padded and comfortably fits my iphone5 with an otterbox case with room to spare however I believe this could fit a larger phone easily). Below this is a zippered pocket which is large (about the depth of the pack halfway then down), and finally there are the typical pencil/pen organizer pockets. This middle pocket is huge. I can stuff my lab goggles in here, glasses case, a couple field guides, a book, planner, etc on top of filling up all the previously commented pockets with bars, fruit, phone, calculator, etc etc. This pocket also opens up more than half way (maybe just shy of 2/3rds) which is really convenient for being able to see and access the bottom of the pack.
And finally there is the last pocket which is lined with a heat embossed fabric. So I've been storing my sunglasses in there (doesn't quite fit my bulky lab goggles since it sticks out awkwardly due to their shape. I haven't tried it on my snow goggles yet) happily.
I ordered my pack in black with the interior being a sea glass green to help with viability inside the pack. There are reflective parts on the pack as well however its not very much. So I would say if you're looking for visibility get one of the vibrant colors offered or in an urban setting be willing to attach the blinker typical to Osprey packs.
Really happy I bought this pack. Maybe I'll get pictures up in the future and in a couple months I'll try to get a follow up review posted. Also, just to note, I was not given anything or paid to do this review - I really am loving this pack this much.
As far as comfort goes I find this bag to be pretty darn comfy, especially when the contents' weight is centered towards the bottom of the bag. The straps are cushy though they are a bit "scratchy" and make a swooshing sounds when you walk as other reviewers have mentioned (I haven't worn it with a tank top so no discomfort there yet). The chest strap is not positioned awkwardly for me as a lady, though I'm not very large up top. I purchased a medium Osprey rain cover for this backpack and it fits well.
I don't own a laptop, there is plenty room for one. I use the sleeve for my original sized iPad. It fits fine.
The pack is light weight and when it is full of stuff, it is still comfortable to carry.
I'm thinking of getting one for camping and hiking.
