In Depth Full Osprey Backpack Reviews

This page is dedicated to Osprey backpack reviews.  I have gone through the most popular Osprey backpacks and found out what the positive and negative aspects of each one are.  The way that I compile my reviews is based on my personal experience with the backpacks, reviews from other people, and from experience with certain functions or materials of certain brands.

Osprey Backpack Reviews - Camino De Santiago

This is me on the Camino in 2015 walking with the Osprey Aether 70

I personally used the Osprey Aether 70 (Check out the full review!) for a period of time. I thought it was an excellent backpack for many different reasons.  It lasted me my whole 3 months backpacking Europe with no signs of wear or tear!  And so I think very highly of Osprey backpacks in general.

Below is a table with all of the Osprey backpack reviews.  You can toggle them based on price and rating.  I give you my recommendation and a full review of that particular Osprey design.  You can also view price which will take you straight to the product on Amazon.

I hope that the reviews will help you in finding the right travel/hiking backpack.  But I also encourage you to do your own research for yourself, to make sure you are making the right decision.

Check out the reviews below!  If you have any specific questions for me, then shoot me an email or leave a comment below.
