The Osprey Ultralight Stuff Pack is what it claims to be. A pack that stuffs into its own pocket and Ultralight, weighing just 90 grams. The small packed size and ultralight weight means you can throw this pack in your tramping pack as a summit pack or for those extra little short walks from your hut or campsite. Also great for leaving in your glovebox too for shopping or when you just may need an extra pack while out somewhere or pack one in your travel suitcase.
Now this little pack is ultralight and not designed to carry heavy objects but with a capacity of 18 litres you can get quite alot in it. I took this little pack on a recent kayaking trip and used it for a couple of little walks from our campsite.
For one walk on a mixed weather day, we took our jackets, as well as snacks, the primus, Sun hats and sun block, bug spray, first aid survival kit and water bottle . All fitting in the Osprey ultralight stuff pack with ease.
The key to comfort with a pack of this nature is to pack your jacket or clothing at the back or around anything that may stick into your back. With what I was carrying this was no problem and with the pack loaded it was comfortable and the shoulder straps were soft and wide enough for this amount of weight.
Organising the pack is easy with a little top stash pocket where you can put snacks, sunblock, phone and secure your car keys to the key clip and the side stretch pocket comfortably takes a water bottle or parka.
Overall I think Osprey have done a good job with this little stuff pack and although the material is ultralight it feels strong and durable and it serves its purpose well.
