Looking for new daypack

Wants

    • prevents a sweaty back
  • good for walking to work
  • ok for biking to work
  • ok for airline travel
  • normally will hold one laptop and one large tablet
  • sometimes will hold two laptops and two tablets
  • on flights will hold four laptops, three tablets, two kindles, and lots of wires

So far, only Osprey has a mesh panel to keep the back cool.

All the models I’m considering have a 25-ish and 35-ish size option.  The larger size compresses down to the smaller one so there is little advantage in the smaller one considering when I do pack a jacket, it takes a lot of space.

Options

  • Osprey
    • Radial 34 (2019)
    • Radial 34 (2018)
    • Escapist
    • Nebula
    • Tropos

 

Pack Pro Con
Radial 34 (2019) Hopefully fixed kickstand digging into back $50 more expensive
Radial 34 (2018) $50 cheaper
  • kickstand sometimes digs into back
Escapist Non removable waist strap
Nebula
Tropos

Update: found my backpack.  See next post.
