I don't currently own any, but the guy at Bass Pro was explaining to me that they're the leader in backpacks and provide a lifetime warranty. I went there because my old bag was falling apart so that's what sold me.

Lots of places to go hiking even just outside of major cities, which is really this pack was designed for. Probably one of the safer activities compared to going to a crowded patio or park.

Too bad the grey and red versions are $179.99. I misplace too many things that are black on hikes.

Light, study, name, life time warranty and comfy. I have osprey 55 2in1 carry on for travel but I agree with you that I won't spend that much $ for a 25L.

The Osprey is made with nylon, which is usually more durable compared to polyester. Warranty is most likely better, YMMV. The Osprey back panel looks more breathable. Hip belt is more robust on the Osprey as well.

Overall Osprey packs are more trusted than Oakley's, and just seem to be better engineered. But I'm sure the Oakley is fine at that price.

I own 3 Osprey bags, and my friends are all converting too. It’s a hard pill to swallow (the price), but how much is your comfort worth each time you use it, and peace of mind with lifetime warranty.

I’m older now though, so place a lot more value on quality and comfort than I used to.

I recommend price matching at MEC, for their rock solid guarantee.
They only started (or re-started?) carrying Osprey bags in the last few years.

Definitely try out the bag first, and add weight to it in store. I’m 5’9” so would presume S/M, but everyone’s torso / body is different, and I rock a M/L.

80% of the weight should be on your hips; and 20% on your shoulders.

I second this. Picked up an Osprey Radial for $125 a couple of weeks back, the last one in their stock. Perfect for my bike commute when I need to carry more than my change of clothing.

Have a slightly older model of the Talon 22. Worth this price imo - best pack I've ever owned. The 22 is a perfect size for day hikes. Can make it work for a short backpacking trip if you go UL but ideally would want a larger pack for that.

I feel like prices have gone up considerably in the last few years - perhaps because they’ve done so well. I got my first Talon 22 over a decade ago and I don’t remember it being anywhere near as expensive as they are now.

I still use that bag, but got another Talon recently because the old one is looking a bit worse for wear (primarily stained from use).

Also have an Atmos 35 which I’ve had for about the same time period.

External bladder sleeve. I supposed a bladder left in the fridge overnight will get warmer faster in that sleeve than a sleeve that's inside a bag like the Stratos?

Try to climb a mountain with that veilance bag...
How many RFDers climb mountains vs. how many RFDers navigate the urban jungle?
By the way, the straps on the Veilance bag are made from Arc'teryx's premium mountain climbing harness material.

My previous Talon 22 is worn out (used it 4-5 times a week for 5 years) so happy to have this offer come along. Thanks OP!

Check your Canadian Tire credit card offers. I combined this offer with a "Spend $80 Get $20 Back" at Sportchek, Also used GCR instead of Rakuten as they had better cash back offer (2.65% vs 1%).

What is this MEC rock solid guarantee?
