It's worth including a link to previous discussion. Here's a recent +61 thread, at close to the same price. Note discussion about what this is and isn't good for. The lack of a chest strap is a big issue for some uses, not so much for others. YMMV.

I have a Marmot Kompressor one that's similar, useful for a lot of situations. But it does have a chest strap. Anyway, main point is that a small light pack can be worth owning, though if you're getting only one pack it might not be the one.

OK, so I am going to disagree with both OP and itsarectangle. All the colors are BEAUTIFUL! Also, these are quite good little backpacks for their intended use which is as a secondary packable backpack for casual day trips, for example, while traveling. They are very lightweight and cannot carry much of a load. In my experience, they do start to show wear quickly. Given their fragility I wonder how exactly Osprey applies their "All Mighty Guarantee" which is normally pretty comprehensive.

I have it, it's very basic but is nice I guess. Just not a lot of value here. It's a simple lightweight packable pack just like countless others from other brands that cost quite a bit less. If it were sub $20 I'd consider it a deal, but at this price it's kind of expensive for what it actually is and does.

I got in Feb 2020 for $20.

Understood. Good point.

I own a lot of Osprey packs (though, not this one) and think that they are some of the best made packs. Granted, those are their true backpacks. This is a simple lightweight day pack (stuff pack). I own a light weight day pack from REI. They are design to have no frills, just one pocket for stuffing some day items and be very light. So yes, you don't get much but that is by design.

I like how Osprey designed this pack to pack down into a smaller pouch. Fold it up into a smaller pouch for easier carrying until needed. many people use these in a bigger back for day hikes. I'd probably pack it down and leave it in my car for those random quick hikes.

I think Osprey might have a higher value then most other brands as they tend to design their bags based on actual real world use and also because they have a lifetime warranty. If it rips, tears, falls apart for _any_ reason, just send it to them and they will either repair it or replace it.

I'd say it is hard press to get even just the materials in this bag for under $25, let alone $20. Personally, I'd say a reasonable deal at $25 and a steal at $20.

I think my REI 18L day pack was probably at least $30.

The Eddie Bauer Stowaway 20L pack is awesome. Has a top pocket, front pocket, and "laptop sleeve inside". This one doesn't have those features if itis important to you..

I do not own this backpack, but own 2x EB Stowaways so I am a little biased. Based on the what I see I would choose the stowaway if they were both the same price, but the stowaway is usually on sale for around $15 which makes it an easy decision.

I also own about 10 other backpacks for different functions.

I picked up 2 of these from the last deal. I was very impressed with the build quality. As others have mentioned the lack of a chest strap is a downside. Otherwise its about exactly what you want out of a stuff sack.

If you need other features out of a backpack other than a main pocket to carry something then a stuff sack shouldn't be on your list.

We put these backpacks in our tank bags on the motorcycle to use in a pinch when out riding and want to bring something home. Will also probably throw these in a backpack for over night backpacking trips as a day pack.
