Size

Osprey Duro 15 Hydration Pack

(1/1)

I’m fairly lean (6’ 0” and 175 pounds with an above average chest size), had the sternum straps cinched 100%, and this was still too large around the shoulder/neck area (and I ordered the smallest size). I didn’t have the pockets stuffed with gear and maybe that would have helped, but I don’t want to always have to carry unnecessary gear just to make it fit. I love all of the pockets and amount of storage of the vest, but it bounces too much to be usable, unfortunately.

Commute

Osprey Duro 15 Hydration Pack

(1/1)

I use this pack for run commuting about 5 miles. It snugly fits a full set of clothes (including size 12 dress shoes), has great storage options for a phone and other necessities on the straps, and hip belt pockets are conveniently located. in addition to the main compartment, the expandable compartments on either side (between hip belt pockets and main compartment), and expandable outer compartment mean this has the most storage I've seen out of a running backpack. The individual pockets also mean your load is evenly distributed throughout the pack, key for maintaining comfort and reducing movement while running

Strap

Osprey Duro 15 Hydration Pack

(1/2)

5 pack. The one downfall of this (and really it’s a minor inconvenience) is the straps with clips on the back side. They extend over the pockets and you have to loosen/un-clip them in order to unzip and access your rear pockets. This isn’t a deal breaker, but hopefully Osprey can figure out a better system for next years model
