The Daylite Series started out with humble beginnings, a simple accessory to attach to our larger packs. However, its lightweight, simplicity, durability, comfortable carry and price has proven to be wildly popular, and today their popularity is undeniable. While the Daylite and Daylite Plus continue to serve well as add-on packs for traveling and more, they shine on their own with incredible versatility and are now available in an even more robust color palette than before. Waist: Adjustable 1.5 inches webbing hipbelt. No matter where you go, the Daylite series is backed by Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee.

Color: I liked it much more than I thought I would. Went with black because frankly the other color options are abhorrent looking (except for the blue with yellow trim, which was $15 more). But it is actually a deep charcoal in person. I think it looks great.
Size: As I said before: 5'10". About 185. Fairly broad shoulders. I will say that this bag looks decent and fits fine, but I DO WISH I had gone with one of Osprey's larger models. You can see in one of my pics how the bag looks when it is just sitting naturally on me - as far as looks go, I think it's not too big, not too small. But it's not the bag itself that's the problem, it's the straps. They are super narrow and very short. You can see in one of my pictures that with the bag at a comfortable position (not hitched all the way up) I have MAYBE about 5" of slack left in the strap. The chest harness has a lot of extra room, but is annoying because there is no convenient way to store the extra slack (one of the reasons I love North Face bags). The belly strap, much like the arm straps, is very small with little extra.The bag fits, but if you are someone much bigger than me, this bag will NOT work for you. Not without some serious modifications, anyways.
Stuff-It pocket: This is cool. There wasn't a single shot of what it looked like inside anywhere I saw online, so I included one. You will notice that it narrows considerably at the bottom... not too big a deal for stowing a sweater or something, but don't expect anything angular like a book to sit comfortably in there.
Water Bottle holders: I saw a lot of questions about this in the Q/A for the product page. To alleviate some concerns, I have some pictures of what my 1L Hydroflask looks like in the bottle holster. It fits securely, but note that it does look a tad bit ridiculous, due to how small the bag is. But bottom line is: it fits fine, though it may slightly displace things at the bottom of the bag.
Laptop Sleeve: What can I say- it works fine. I saw a number of questions about what would fit inside, so I included a pic of my 15" Macbook Pro (2015 model) sitting in there snugly. You hardly feel it when it's on your back- I would say that getting a laptop and a book or something for a night class would be no problem at all. Too much more than that though, and you may find yourself pressed for space.
Additional features: I am annoyed that the belly band strap doesn't detach. I thought it did for some reason but it does not, and there is no convenient way to stash it when not in use. If you are like me and hate those things dangling at your sides all the time, prepare to be annoyed. The chest strap is easily adjustable, but as I said above, I wish I could stow the slack from the extra strap when it is adjusted. Build quality is very nice- this bag isn't advertised as water resistant, but it definitely doesn't feel like it would be easily soaked. Nothing a rain cover couldn't fix, anyways.
Bottom line: Great feeling, great looking bag. This bag would be PERFECT (five stars) with some very small adjustments from Osprey: more slack in the straps, detachable belly band, and somewhat thicker/higher quality straps would make this thing for me. If you are a larger person, expect issues with fit.
I am taking this bag on a serious of day trips at the end of the month, and if anything in particular stands out to me, I will come back and update my review.
To Osprey Marketing people: if you are reading this, PLEASE update/do your videos differently. People don't want an explanation, they want to SEE it; thus the video. If you want to see what a good video for a bag looks like, check out any of the Thule or Peak Design Amazon product videos. They show what fits where, demonstrate all the bag features, and actually SHOW them loading their bags up, item by item. Very handy, and should be the standard imo.
I am SO glad that I went head and purchased this anyways. This bag is the most comfortable backpack I have ever used and the pockets are amazing. The main pocket is huge and has a computer sleeve inside (that I just used for other stuff). On the outside of the bag, there is a smaller pocket on the top with 2 mini pocket holders inside. The zipper pocket in the front is huge and can fit essential items. Additionally, that flap with the zipper pocket is also a pocket that you can stuff anything in.
I fit the following things in this bag (which I used as a carry-on when I checked my bag at the airport):
Main Pocket: 1 thin sweatshirt, 1 thin long sleeve shirt, 2 pairs of underwear, 1 pair shorts, 1 short sleeve shirt, 1 pair of leggings, 1 pair of socks, 1 pair of toms, 1 quart size bags of medications, 1 quart size bag of liquids, Toothbrush, Hairbrush, Lonely Planet Travel book, printed packet of itinerary. Even then, I had a little bit of room.
Smaller pocket on outside of bag: Clif Power Bar, Snickers, Heath Bar, Camera, Cellphone charger and cord, Camera charging cord, Headphones, Wireless Headphones, Earplugs, Kleenex Packet, Sunglasses, and Sleeping Mask.
Flap Pocket: Tissues and Restaurant Napkins (for bathroom when there are no tissues)
Small pocket on outside of flap: Hand lotion, Hand sanitizer, Suntan Lotion, Advil, and Tums (all items travel sized).
This is everything I needed in case my bag got lost. My shoulders never got sore and my bag never got sweaty. This is a must buy. Enjoy!!!
Top international reviews
*good quality, lightweight,
*works well with the Sojourn,
*has compression straps which is handy for items to be a fixed outside the bag,
*handy extra pocket on the front,
*waist strap, adjustable height chest strap.
*the compression part on the front is a pocket which limits its use a bit although I still managed to get a beach towel in it,
*the interior is made from quite flimsy materials not like the great quality of the Farpoint bags for example,
*there are no pockets in the main compartment other than a laptop compartment which is not the best for quality but ample and functional,
*the back support does not look great to me although I am yet to try it on holiday in 90 degree heat. It is a thin one-piece flexible hard panel under mesh which is quite firm, with some slots in it. It feels quite comfortable indoors. When I first tried it with items in the bag, my camera made it bend inwards in the middle which was really uncomfortable. Also, there is space behind it for a water pack and I would think if you use that you may struggle to get the back board curving with and sitting well on your back. Being like a fixed firm board against your back is not the best design for me. I am also not sure how breathable and comfortable it is going to be although have not properly tested that. Other daypacks I have had like berghaus, north face seem to have better designed backs in terms of comfort and airflow.
* the bag is not black to match the Sojourn. It looks like amazon have all the colour options, when you click the black coloured box you get a picture of a black pack, however the words above the small box say black/ blue. In fact, the front is teal blue and the sides are black so not like the photo. It is quite subtle but I really wanted all black to match the Sojourn.
* there are 2 nets on the sides for bottles, they do not look very bottle shaped so not sure how good they will be. I have put a small bottle of water in it and it seems to hold ok but am yet to properly test it.
Overall though, the pack looks good, is very lightweight and has some features I really like so I am hopeful I am going to like it.
These daypacks are ideal for my use: warm weather gear with camera, binoculars and food for a day out looking for wildlife.
I don't use the hip straps - these can be removed instead of being cut off on other packs.
The main advantages are: LIGHTNESS and COMFORT.
I have yet to find a better daypack.
Pro's: lightweigt, comfortable, looks nice (but not as in picture), laptop compartment, it is compatible with ariel AG although not easy.
But if you ever use the mesh pockets on the side for a water bottle, don't get it. Just don't bother. They're sort of square and shallow, so whatever you do, whatever bottle you have, it WILL fall out. If you bend over even a little, out it comes. If you lean for something, yep you've lost your water. If you put the bag down anything other than perfectly vertically, gone. Even walking, a bottle will typically slowly ride up and up due to the shape of the pocket and the way the bag's main part pushes against the bottle, and ... you guessed it! Your water's gone.
If you use those pockets for water, don't get it.
If you put other stuff in there (like a hat, scarf, gloves, whatever like that) then you're fine.
Also nothing stays in that cool little expandable bit in the middle. So far it's been completely useless for nearly everything. I rarely use it.
Overall the bag is okay but it has some flaws that make me wish I had bought something different.
1) I cannot believe that a brand like Osprey, who must have knowledge of ergonomics, have made this bag with one size fits all arm straps. You can see in the pictures that around your neck area the straps are joined instead of being independent. Therefore it's difficult to adjust and get comfortable to your unique spine design.
2) The bottle holder nets on the sides have hardly any contraction. I've dented a much loved coffee cup three times in three weeks as it falls out if you do a little jog or bend down.
3) The laptop divider inside the bag seems to be made from really cheap material, which also annoyed me as the bag isn't cheap.
Bought 2 for me and my wife for day hikes.
Didn’t want anything too bulky or large as I have arthritis in my neck and struggle to carry too much.
Really comfortable and the pack sits high up on the back....the waist band and chest band provide additional support ..... happily walked for a day with no ill effects ... to be honest didn’t really notice I was wearing it.
The pack is large enough for overtrousers, light water proof jacket, lunch box, half litre water bottle and quite a bit more.
Would definitely recommend.
