We’ve put enough Osprey backpacks through the wringer over the last decade to fill a garage—or two. We’ve tested the Colorado brand’s specialized ski packs, their huge, multi-day backpacking backpacks, and everything in between. And you know what? We’ve never had a single sub-outstanding experience. If you’re hunting for a high-quality pack, you can’t go wrong with Osprey. Case in point, the Hikelite 26. A sleek yet capable pack, the Hikelite is purpose-built for anything from short hikes to full-day alpine adventures. The exceptionally ventilated Airspeed back panel keeps the lower back from resembling a swamp of sweat on muggy or mountainous hikes. The pack also sports an integrated rain cover that protects electronics and gear from unexpected downpours, stretchy mesh pockets for water bottles, and an internal hydration sleeve that fits up to a 3-liter reservoir. No doubt about it, the Hikelite 26 is a thoughtful, pragmatic gift for avid and aspiring hikers alike.
