I have to admit that I have a love affair with Osprey packs. Since starting Benosh with my friend Josh, we have gotten to try out a few of Osprey’s offerings. I believe that they are the ones within the market that puts perhaps the most time in on developing a pack with multi-purpose potential purpose–and the uses no one could foresee.
When prepping for some business travel a couple weeks back, I had to grab a new bag for my laptop. I am VERY particular in my search for the ultimate work/laptop pack. I made my way to Backwoods here in Tulsa looking for an Osprey FlapJack commuter bag, but wanted to see if it would be sung on my 15″ Macbook Pro or if it would be too big. Upon arriving, I found that they didn’t have any, bu in looking at what they did have in stock, I found my new love, Osprey’s Axis.
The Axis Daypack is an active, everyday pack that bridges the gap between your work day and after work play. Carry a laptop and papers, or rain gear, extra food and a layer. I really appreciate how tight it can pull in and snugs my laptop, iPad and gear I use on a daily basis, while having the ability to extend out to 1100 cubic inches. The many pockets are placed perfectly and are spread about the pack nicely for optimal placement and weight distribution by a front bungee compression system.
The full dimensions are 18″ x 11″ x 8.5″ with a weight of 1 lb 8 oz. Comprised of a lightweight but sturdy 24 D Nylon double Diamond Rip / 420 D Nylon Packcloth, the pack gives you a secure feeling for storage while also hugging your body nicely with a mesh over slotted EVA foam harness and spacer mesh backpanel.
I HIGHLY recommend that you check the Axis out. You can grab one of your own for a great price range of $59.98 to $69.00.
