Show Description

Looking to hit the lookout by lunch? Osprey’s suspended mesh AirSpeed back panel lets cool air circulate as you pick up the pace on your day hike. Bonus: the HikeLite is hydration-compatible and even has loops for your trekking poles. A bunch of pockets stash everything you need in the right spot: side pockets that fit 1L water bottles, a scratch-free pocket for your sunglasses, and a large front pocket for your extra layer.

  • Trampoline suspended mesh AirSpeed back panel disperses and balances the load while letting air flow in to cool your back.
  • Removable webbing waistbelt adds stability for larger loads.
  • Zippered panel load access to the large main compartment.
  • Stretch side pockets and a large front shove-it pocket provide on-the-go gear storage options.
  • Soft lined pocket protects your sunnies from scratches.
  • Trekking pole loops and compression straps let you lash on extra gear.
  • Custom-sized rain cover stows in its own dedicated pocket so you're always prepared for bad weather.
  • Internal hydration sleeve fits a 3L reservoir. (Reservoir sold separately.)
