 Osprey Packs
Osprey Packs are on sale today @ EMS (Deal of the day) I would like to pick one up for my daughter but, I need some help. She is a 15 y/o 5'2" tall teenager. This will be an upgrade from an ultralight day pack. I would like to get a pack that is adequate for day hikes for in seasons. So, I am looking for both size & model recommendations.

Thanks for the help.

The "." in the end of my sentence was automatically included by the forum software. vBulletin does not do that - sorry. I fixed it.

Tim, Thank you for the Osprey vote. I have been a long time lurker here and on VFTT & I respect your opinion. The sizing is most important as the women in my life are very small in stature and the Osprey Womens sizing seems to be a good match for my daughter.

Madmattd, I was hoping that others would pick up on this deal of the day. I am happy to have helped. BTW, I am from Medfield, MA and I work in Holliston.

The Stratos 40 is the one shown packed in the Easiest Winter 4000 footer thread. It works just about perfectly for me for winter day hikes. The Talon-22, if I had to do over, would probably go with a Stratos-24, which was not available at the time. The 22 is a scootch too small, and without a frame sheet it doesn't take a good load very well - I purposely bought it to force me to go lighter in the summer. The 32 broke when I fell on it, but EMS replaced it and I upgraded to the 40 in the process. Now, Osprey has the lifetime guarantee.

I love EMS, BUT I very rarely bother with EMS' non "A" stores. The (s)mall stores are good for little things, but not for a great selection. Heck even some of the "A" stores (Concord, Nashua) don't stock every Osprey in every size. You're in for a real disappointment if you're trying to outfit children. REI is not in NH, and I don't see any point in paying MA taxes.

Campmor has a bunch of Ospreys on sale too. Not quite as good as the EMS sale yesterday, but an option for those out there looking and unable to get to a store.

I stopped in at the Manchester store the last time I went to NH...if the Concord one is considered larger I'll make that my normal stop instead! REI is nice but really only because they are right by me. I hear you on the MA taxes, though I'm originally from NYS where the tax rate is 8%...so 6% or whatever it is here is a nice change.

Concord and Nashua are at least twice as big as the Mall of NH store in Manchester. Note that at one time, they planned to move out of the mall and into an "A" store but haven't found a good place, or stopped looking when the economy 'shrunk'.

Landed a Kestrel 38 today for less than the Stratos 36 was going for on the sale...nicer pack overall too for what I'm looking for. Now I just can't wait for spring! (I don't do snow, thanks. Walking/shoveling/driving in it is more than enough. Maybe some day that will change, but not now.)

I kind of feel bad that this thread got hijacked...Lost Dad, did you make out good?
