A gimmick

Tested on 15 mile hillwalk carrying 5kg - 6 kg if that. Firstly, the back system has eaten my lightweight shirt - this was an initial reservation I had about the osprey back system a long time ago, as it looked to harsh for my lightweight clothes and I have also had issues with other ruck sacks that thankfully I managed to resolve. There needs to be padding around the bottom of the frame or at least it needs smoothing out. I am worried about using it with my expensive and very light waterproof.

I found it extremely uncomfortable. I am not a sponsored user or magazine who are not going to say anything bad - I'm a regular user and this is my true experience - the straps dug into my shoulders and they now hurt. The lack of flexibility to alter sternum strap is just unworkable - its a total nightmare to move them from the one of 3 options.

The tearing up of my clothes is a real issue for me and sadly this is not the bag for me - I expected so much more, not only from the bag but the brand. I think my initial reservations were correct and I can see why I've never used osprey packs since - they don't work with ultra lightweight clothes, it just tears them up and the pack actually felt sturdy it didn't feel like there was even much movement so I'm not sure how this has happened only that the material at a crucial point on the bag is too rough - it needs a mod.

Unfortunately for me a dreadful waste of money! Obviously people need to be made aware of the serious limitations of this system rather than listening to people telling you how fantastic it is because in varying degrees of vocabulary - thats what they always say when they review a product and its just all hype around this one.
