Size

Osprey Hikelite 26L

(1/3)

Fits all I needed and was comfortable. I think I'm making out the size to be comfortable at 6'.

Zipper

Osprey Hikelite 26L

(1/1)

I was so disappointed when the zipper on my hikelite went out. I've had it for less than a year and I have to replace it now. Compared to other packs I have had in the past, this is the lightest I've been on one. I loved this backpack and the 4-8 week turn around time for repairs is just too much :( I've always been a fan of osprey and always thought they were pretty quality

Laptop

Compartment

Osprey Hikelite 26L

(1/2)

Completely impossible to get back on. Osprey does have a free repair program, which is great, but it will cost 20% the value of the bag to ship it back. Only other complaint is it needs 1-2 more small compartments. Needs an inner one for security, at least

Strap

Osprey Hikelite 26L

(1/3)

The big flaw is the way the sternum strap is attached. It came off in the first 5 hours of use. Completely impossible to get back on. Osprey does have a free repair program, which is great, but it will cost 20% the value of the bag to ship it back
