In Georgia’s warm, humid climate, airy backpack ventilation is something I’ve longed for on the trail. The coverage of most backpacks leaves puddles of sweat on my back, which is equally uncomfortable and chilly when temperatures drop later in the day. The Osprey Stratos 24 combines a curved, lightweight aluminum frame with an open, perforated back panel, leaving space for a ton of airflow between the pack and my back. The result? An incredible amount of ventilation…
