I got this particular pack because I need a size extra small which reduces the volume of the pack down to 77L and also because it’s the only Osprey pack that has external access to the hydration reservoir which was very important. I hate struggling with a full reservoir and a full pack. The Osprey Hydraulics with a backing plate works great in this pack. Even when full this pack is comfortable and manageable. At 5’7”/130 and a very short torso, I took an extra small and it fits comfortably. It is very spacious with well-appointed features and pockets. It fits my UL tent, sleeping bag, pad, stove, food, almost glamping level space. The daypack is handy and also comfortable. It’s roomy enough for those last push snacks and gear. This is my first large backpacking pack but I’m very happy and with the quality I can’t imagine I’ll need another for quite some time.
It does not come with a rain cover. At this price point and the fact that lesser Osprey packs come with the cover, I think this one certainly should. You can buy them separately but I don’t think you should have to.
