Grab the Osprey Escapist 18 and play hooky from work this afternoon. Anchored by a BioStretch harness and hipbelt, this low-profile pack is designed to keep the load balanced when descending rough terrain. The Airscape mesh backpanel provides ventilation when you’re grinding up the pass. Access to the main compartment comes via a convenient zippered front panel so you can see your gear at a glance. An internal divider creates segregated storage for anything you want to prevent from commingling—post-ride clothing or perhaps a pair of sandals— with the rest of your gear. Additional features include a myriad of external storage options starting with three handy stretch mesh pockets—one on each side and another in the front. The hip belt has twin zippered pockets for snacks and there’s a phone-sized pocket on the shoulder strap. A zippered external front pocket keeps valuables secure and a special non-scratch pocket protects your shades. The external hydration sleeve makes for easy reservoir refills.If you’re out after sunset, this pack features reflective accents and a blinker light attachment point for extra visibility. And if a sudden storm rolls in, there’s an integrated raincover always stowed in the bottom of the pack.
