Clean lines, textured warm fabrics and a hint of retro, offset the technical sophistication of this series.

Who We Are
Things at Osprey move full circle, starting with the people, resulting in the product and then back to the people for the lifetime of the product. Many of us live in southwest Colorado near Osprey’s headquarters in Cortez. Nestled at the corner of the rugged San Juan Mountains and on the edge of vast sandstone canyon country, this landscape provides us with constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for our packs. Also a small group of us work in our design studio in Mill Valley, CA. Team Vietnam You’ll find the rest of us, often Osprey founder and head designer Mike Pfotenhauer, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Here, surrounded by heat, endless bustle and vibrant energy, we design and build our packs to the exacting standards expected of Osprey. Living in HCM City provides many benefits, including the ability to ensure fair labor standards and face-to-face relationships with the factories that build our packs, cultural enlightenment, and the design inspiration of a cosmopolitan city. Our mission is to create innovative high performance gear that reflects our love of adventure and our devotion to the outdoors. We succeed when we meet the demanding expectation of our most discerning customers and they are proud to use our packs.

On the other hand, if you don't walk or bike much but often need to open and close the backpack, you may find that the flap design is annoying. I've used this backpack for three weeks, then I used another one with a regular zipper design (top-loading). The flap kept annoying me, the zipper design, never.
Another flaw - the bottom-most compartment is awkward to access. You're supposed to put cables there, but it just isn't easy to get to them.
Other than that, it's a neat, slim backpack that can expand to hold more stuff thanks to side zippers. Choose based on your commute/backpack use pattern!
This review is for the 2016 model of the pack. The 2017 model made a few upgrades: external side pockets, a whistle on the sternum strap, and access to the laptop compartment from the inside of the pack.
My use case: walking a little over a mile each way to the office, I need a comfortable backpack that will hold my laptop, EDC, water/thermos, and some lunch/snacks. Function is more important to me than form, but I like the bag to be somewhat attractive or at least not unattractive. I also prefer bags that have a few strategically placed pockets (including a laptop compartment) but don't go overboard. Too many subdivisions and it turns into kind of a Procrustean bag that forces you to use it a certain way instead of adapting to the way you want to use it.
On that point I think the Powerhouse cable organizer is genius. Instead of building bulky cable organization into the bag, they give you a separate pouch. You decide whether or not to use it. If you're just going to work and you have a docking station there then you can leave the Powerhouse at home. If you're working in the field or traveling and need to bring cords and dongles back and forth, the Powerhouse organizes them brilliantly. Some days you may need it and other days you don't. The little garage pocket at the bottom of the bag is sized to hold the Powerhouse but you can use it for something else and just throw the Powerhouse in the main compartment of the bag--whatever works best for you.
The Pixel has expandable gussets, which I liked in theory. The bag keeps a very trim profile if you zip the gussets closed, or you can expand it out if you need to carry more. This makes it really flexible for different load sizes from day to day or even within the same day (say you bring a bulky lunch, you need more cargo space in the morning than the evening. Or you stop at the library on the way home and need to expand it to carry a few books). In practice though, I found that the opening to the main compartment is too confining if you have the gussets zipped closed. Because it's a pretty tall bag, the narrow space makes it hard to get what you need unless you are only packing tall stuff like binders. If you have to dig for your sunglasses case or cosmetic pouch way at the bottom of the bag, you don't get much room to maneuver.
The thing that was a dealbreaker for me--again, this is just personal preference--was the flap. It definitely makes for a sleeker appearance and probably helps the bag shed rain better (it would also be better at defending against pickpocketing if you intend to travel with the bag), but it just makes it annoying to use the bag day-to-day. The flap goes all the way to the bottom and has two buckles, making it cumbersome to open it just to get something from inside. I suppose you could leave one buckle undone to make that faster. But once you open it you still have this huge flap to get out of the way. It definitely makes it tougher to access stuff inside the bag, especially if you're in a confined space like a crowded subway. The flap is concave (it hugs the sides of the pack), so to get it to lay nicely against the back of the pack when open, you have to pop it inside out. Then when you want to close it again you have to pop it right side out again. Not a huge deal but enough of an annoyance that I decided it wasn't going to work for me. I haven't tried the Flapjack/Flapjill but that series looks to have a shorter flap with a single buckle, which may make it easier to use.
All in all an excellent pack with enough design issues that I didn't think it would work for me. I'm still a huge Osprey fan, so I'm exchanging it for the Cyber model.
What I don't like about the side pocket is the fact that pushing the laptop in and pulling it out, it always scratches the laptop (just a tiny bit, but I still feel for it). Otherwise I love the backpack, but can only give it 4 stars for it's bikeability. Due to the shape, it's kinda hard to look over your shoulders - there's always the pack in the way when looking if someone else is passing you. I wish the front pocket would be divided so I can keep my keys and phone separate without worrying it getting scratched or having to open to main compartment, but these are all minor issues.
