The Osprey Skarab 30 is a large daypack that is equipped with its own hydration system. It also has a cushioned mesh and foam suspension that enhances comfort and ventilation.
The pack's suspension uses EVA foam stretched over a foam framesheet for comfort and support. An open mesh backpanel allows your back to breathe resulting in a cooler, dryer hike. The hip belt and shoulder harness use mesh cushioning over die-cut foam to provide a comfortable fit. An adjustable sternum strap helps you dial in the fit.
This pack has a wide, bucket-style opening to make easy to load and unload. Inside, there is an interior volume of about 1830 cubic inches. That includes a dedicated hydration pocket and an included 2.5-liter Hydraulics LT reservoir. The drinking hose connects smartly to a magnetic bite valve attachment on the pack's sternum strap. There is also a handy heat-embossed, scratch-free zippered slash pocket, perfect to safely hold your glasses or phone. For more storage, there are 2 large zippered side panel pockets, dual zippered hip belt pockets and a front shove-it pocket.
On the exterior, the upper and lower compression straps are useful for securing the pack’s contents. This pack uses the upper straps as a trekking pole attachment system. Along with dedicated lower loops, the straps give you a place to put your poles when you don’t need them. There are also daisy chain attachment points and an ice axe loop.
The Osprey Skarab 30 hydration pack is available in your choice of colors.
