About this deal

Széles portfóliójukban találunk hátizsákokat többnapos túrákra, biciklizésre de akár mászáshoz és kisgyerekeknek is. The packs stress minimalism in both appearance and features, a break from Osprey’s usual cutting-edge aesthetics and generous conveniences. This feels a lot like those old trusty canvas bags that refused to die but is better for the environment and looks a bit nicer, too. The archeon 25 is NOT a light pack but is certainly one of the most hardy feeling Osprey packs I have ever used.

The foam itself has cut-outs in various areas to increase ventilation, while the mesh grips securely to clothing and limits unnecessary movement. A unique, highly accessible front zip opening allows you to pack, unpack and quickly access your gear.Perhaps on the Archeon 70(65) I'd be more forgiving, but I can't see myself ever using this way of entering a bag that's only 45 litres in size, since it's easy enough to pack it so that everything you're likely to need in a hurry is to hand. I fully agree with the first two, but the inability to stash the hip belt and shoulder straps is a limiting factor for my consideration as a true travel pack. When bad weather sits in, you can have your rain cover out of the pocket and onto the backpack in a matter of seconds.

Wrong size hiking boots, wrong fit backpack, wrong shape sleeping bag… As any adventurer will tell you, gear is a personal choice. To hold the pack together and take pressure off the zipped opening when you're fully loaded, Osprey have added an internal clipped strap.However, we discovered that this pack is much more suited for hiking and short overnight trips and really comes into its own in these situations. This fabric is also Bluesign-approved, meaning the people that make the fabric work in healthy conditions and the fabric itself is sustainable. However, because of its “extendable” storage capabilities the Archeon 25 can effectively DOUBLE in size and storage capacity making it ideal for day hikes, camping trips or even weekend breaks.

Now that the lecture is out of the way, let’s take a look at the Archeon 25 backpack by Osprey – the 25L “daypack” offering from their brand new, eco-friendly, fully recycled backpack range. In our calisthenics testing, we found this pack to severely restrict our range of motion, similar to a backpacking pack, which is unfortunate for a pack this small. Rest assured that with the Archeon series, you will be the hippest cat out on the trail and the pack will not look out of place in hip, city streets. Of course the Archeon is not a technical mountain pack, so it's likely to see only occasional axe use. While it shoots for a nice blend of urban- and mountain-oriented features, it misses some key aspects of both realms.high and 19cm wide and, it's positioned just above the hip-belt area, which is also padded with ridged foam padding. I got this great Osprey backpack for my girlfriend as she needed something for day to day use such as going to the gym, to work or taking on bike rides. It’s easy to load and compress gear through the top opening, which is especially effective for trad climbing gear. The Osprey Archeon 25 is a stylish example of a recycled backpack that looks and feels like traditional canvas, which is naturally more durable and heavier than nylon. Up until very recently, many Osprey’s backpacks did not come with rain covers and had to be purchased separately.

We could see it being nice for some types of travel, but there are much better options for packs that can carry your gear comfortably from the overhead compartment all the way to a summit. Osprey backpacks are not as cheap as other packs on the market and there are a lot of cheaper, inferior brands out there. The roll top design on bags is super convenient as you simply roll down the top of the backpack like a Swiss roll to decrease the footprint of the bag.In addition the back length is adjustable via a very simple and robust Velcro pad, giving you around 8cm of play.

Between the Osprey rain cover and the dry bags, you will be an unstoppable waterproof force up for any adventure. When the excess fabric of the rolltop is rolled up, it is secured in place via a long webbing strap, which measures 44cm long, 40mm wide and 1mm thick.
