I initially bought this pack prior to embarking on a larger thru-hike with side tracks that would only require a smaller pack. It was ideal for the job as it piggy-backed my Aether 70 thanks to Osprey's design team who included an attachment loop system in the 70. Now off the track, I find myself using the Day Lite for day-to-day activities, leaving my pockets clear and me hands-free. Its functionality is great and is very good value for money.

I love my Osprey 22 yet wanted a smaller pack so I happily bought the Daylite. After using it for three day hikes where my water bottle continually fell out due to the angle of the pocket and/or the lack of elastic to hold it in the whenever I leaned over, I sadly returned. Great size, light weight, terrible design.
Please Osprey fix it!

      Comments about Osprey DAYLITE:

      I am a guide and have used this pack every day for 2 years. It's fantastic! It holds all the essentials I need for a day at work and fits comfortably on my back and shoulders. I can easily fit a .75L or a 1L CamelBak bottle in the side pockets easily without them sliding out. My biggest disappointment about my pack is that after 2 years of constant use it has faded slightly...but I guess that's understandable with the hours it's spent in the sun.

        Comments about Osprey DAYLITE:

        This is a fabulous day pack for travel or around town. I use this pack as a companion piece to my Osprey 46L which I can attach it to. I also use the Daylite for hydration which is perfect for treks. If you are looking for something that you can stuff android to the "gills" this is not the pack for you. I am a minimalist and for scooting out and about during the day when traveling thru cities and local areas it works perfectly. This pack is not designed for long term, high volume packing inside. You want an say on the go day pack - go for this one!

        Comments about Osprey DAYLITE:

        Great pack for day hikes and travel. Very light weight, comfortable and generous in size for day to day use and for day hikes. Nice internal pocket for laptop or tablet. Other good news is that the pack has a very generous flap to protect the main zipper from water getting in. The bad news is that the zipper continually gets snagged on the flap when opening and closing; a very fussy and annoying feature.

          Bought this pack for my boyfriend to use while riding his motorcycle, it's the perfect size and very comfortable. Looks and feels great. Only thing I would recommend​ is for the little inner pockets in the front pocket to have either a zipper close or velcro, that way nothing can get out. Overall, great little pack and very handy!

            I have the Daylight Plus, and it's a great daypack. Just want to ditto the comments about the web pockets being inadequate for water bottles, though I now carry a 70 oz. Camelbak hydration reservoir which it accommodates very nicely.

              Comments about Osprey DAYLITE:

              I've had this pack for about 3 years now and it is my absolute favorite. Whether I am going to work or out hiking, this is the pack that I use. When I hike, it's usually for a long day and I typically bring some cooking gear and my hammock. This pack is able to fit it all while still being a lightweight bag and relatively small. This pack is big enough to fit my laptop in the sleeve as well.

              The only thing that I do not like about it is how small the side mesh pockets get when the bag is close to full capacity. if I have larger items in the pack, I can't quite fit my 1L Nalgene in the pocket. But the fix to that is to clip it into the compression strap and then I'll never lose it.

              Overall, this is an ideal pack for anyone who needs that everyday companion.

                  Comments about Osprey DAYLITE:

                  I got this to use as my hiking backpack and, for the most part, I haven't been disappointed. It has more than enough room for everything I need and the front panel keeps me organized. The key clip is especially handy, because that's the last thing I want to go searching for at the end of a long hike!

                  I only have two complaints. One, I wish it had an external bungee to secure an extra jacket. It seems like a no-brainer. Secondly, the shape of the side mesh pockets means my water bottles aren't secure... and meant I had one go skittering down the side of a mountain! It's easy enough to buckle it into the side cinch straps, but it's still annoying. That being said, neither of these are fatal flaws and, for the price, this pack is great!
