Good Backpack Option For Day Hikes The Osprey Syncro 15 Review


Here’s a day pack I think works great for 3 season hiking for distances up to 10k and maybe a bit beyond. The Osprey Syncro 15 is mainly geared for cycling but can also be used for day hiking during the 3 seasons.

I can easily fit in my 10 hiking essentials and maybe an extra shirt or light fleece when the water reservoir is full. I probably won’t be using this during the winter.

What I like about this pack:
1. Light pack (under 1.5 lbs) due to the 100D nylon. Thinner, and not as abrasive as tougher packs.
2. 2.5L reservoir water bladder
3. Sits high on your shoulders, weight is well centered.
4. Air flow for your back and shoulder straps.
5. hi-viz. I called this color yellow but it’s velocity green
6. Rain Cover.

I was very impressed with that pack. Good review Jimbo. The pack itself really looks awesome. Now I want one.

Could you fit 13 inch laptop in the hydration pocket?

Osprey make great bags, maybe even the best. I like that pack but for me it looks a little small, even for a day hike. Probably because I go a little gear heavy. Good air flow on my back is essential as I perspire heavily. In the summer a wet back is annoying but in the winter it is dangerous. I am looking at a larger Osprey that I make work as a “bushcraft” bag. Maybe the Atmos AG 50. It might be too large but the suspension is awesome

I love that style of pack for mountain biking. Great air flow on the back.

Hey Jim. That is a great looking pack with lots of features. I like that it is large enough to carry essentials but not so large that you can overpack it. This is a nice option to have filled at the ready for whenever the adventure bug hits you. I think Osprey packs are worth every penny………Take care, Mike.
