Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent pack! This isn't an excellent pack for the price; it is an excellent pack period. The adjustment range, light weight, and tons of space make it a great choice for anyone who is looking for a do-all pack. Fill it up for a long haul, cinch it down for short trips. Have loaded it up to the gills with about 40lbs and was comfortable for a short overnighter (was carrying gear for two small kids along with my own kit). Plenty of lashing points/straps on the exterior; and the angled openings to the side mesh stretch pockets is a really nice touch (can grab my nalgene bottles without having to be a contortionist). All in all this pack has Cadillac features at a Honda price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save your money and buy this pack! Being from the Midwest, I got this when I realized I'm going to need something bigger to carry a bear can in California. I've used this on weekend backpacking outings into the Angeles National Forest, Cucamonga Wilderness and surrounding areas so far. It's been loaded with around 34lbs including water, food and a bear can. This thing swallows a bear can with ease! The build quality is excellent and the comfort leaves nothing to be desired. Sure you could get something super luxurious and most likely less durable (see the AG suspension) but this thing is already looking to be a very durable pack at an excellent value for the quality. So glad I decided to give Osprey a shot with the Volt 75. They hit the nail on the head with this adjustable pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value, holds bear can, comfortable loads Great spare pack for any gear enthusiast because it adjusts on-the-fly to fit almost anyone (waist, torso, shoulders) with a velcro system. I own two of these packs, (last season's green and this year's red) and frequently lend them to my gearless friends and relatives. Has a lower compartment (with zipper) that is rounded and holds a Bear Vault 500 or other large bear canister perfectly. Comfortably carries heavy loads and has an overall weight that puts it near 'ultralight.' Even though it may weigh a few more ounces than some other ultralights, the versatility of this pack makes it a best buy for anyone. Also a great gift for a teenager or growing person because it will grow with them and it is durable enough to last many seasons You may be able to get blue or green models from past years if you search around, but the new colors are nice. If I were just getting into backpacking I would really hope someone was around to recommend this pack to me....it's awesome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weight trade-off I have used this pack now for four summers on multiple backpacking trips. While the weight of 3 lbs 12 oz is great, there is a trade-off in comfort. I have never been able to get this to fit properly despite every possible iteration of straps and it just will not sit on my hips causing shoulder pain. My Gregory Baltoro pack while weighing about 2 lbs. more can carry more weight while feeling much lighter. If you look at the pictures of Osprey and other packs, you will see that the shoulder straps on Osprey packs are much shorter also. I will be moving on this year to a new pack as I just cannot take another summer of a pack that cannot be fitted properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack, great fit. I bought this pack last year after hiking 275 miles of the Appalachian trail with a mountainsmith 70L that just didn't fit or pack well. Originally wanted a smaller pack, but was told Osprey supplies were limited across the country at all stores and all they had in stock was the 75. Tried on several different packs and just wasn't happy with the fit as i am a relatively small guy (5'7" 29inch waist). Tried the volt and haven't regretted it. Hiked another 150 miles of the AT south through Maine and liked it even more at the end of the hike. It is a simple pack without a lot of extra bells and whistles that are cropping up on a lot of newer packs. The adjustable back pannel is sturdy and made it easy to micro-manage the fit based on how it was loaded and how I was feeling, plus I discovered an added bonus, adjust it to its smallest setting and it sits up higher, handy for keeping it dry during water crossings in Maine. Overall a great pack and would highly recommend it as a primary pack, or at its price point a great pack for growing teens or as a loaner pack. Plenty of cinch points make it versatile and the hip belt pockets are big enough for snacks or a small camera. My one minor issue if i had to think of something would be the hydration sleeve. It was a little tight for a full 3L platypus bladder, and though the location made it easy to slip in and out with the pack loaded, having it against your back makes the water get warmer faster, however these issues were very minor in my own opinion. Again, a very sturdy all around pack that I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack and fantastic value I can't understand why no one else has reviewed this pack. This is a fantastic, very light weight pack that fits comfortably and can carry up to 50 lbs with ease (not that I recommend that much weight). Honestly, for $200 this pack is a steal. It's 1-1/2 lbs lighter than my Arcteryx Altra 75 and has become my "go to" back for most trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT PACK AT A GREAT PRICE I broke this pack in on a 3-day trek along the Ouachita Trail in Eastern Oklahoma. It held 4 days worth of dehydrated meals, a Kelty TN2, clothes to sleep in, a 50 degree bag, camp stove, trauma/first aid kit, 3L of water in a Camelbak, 2 Nalgenes, a rain jacket and GSI pot with plenty of room to spare in the main compartment. Lashing points carried more gear on the exterior of the pack. The pockets in the lid section carried small items as well with lots of room and easy access. I was a little worried about the mesh pockets holding the bottles but they held tight and secure. This pack made the uphill climbs noticeably easier than they were with my old pack (one more suited for the Military/LE world). The only thing I had trouble with was my water reservoir not sitting all the way into the pocket. It rode high but not uncomfortably. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing more than "Bells and Whistles" I bought an Osprey Aether75 for my son and was very impressed, and when I saw there was a "simplified" pack Osprey offered without (as the REI video states) all the "Bells and Whistles" I was excited to get my hands on one. My local store did not stock the Volt so I ordered one, and was not impressed with it. My impression is that Osprey cut a lot more than "Bells and Whistles" with this pack. The best feature is the forward tightening hip belt. The worst feature are the much smaller hip pads that did not extend around my 35" waist to the front of my hip bones. The pack felt like it was barely supported by my waist, and did not wrap itself around me at all. All of the other straps are smaller, thinner, and cheaper as well. The shoulder straps have less padding. The pack cloth did seem to be decent weight and the craftsmanship was what I would expect from Osprey, but overall, I was not impressed. Other reviews state not to overload this pack, and I strongly agree with this. I will be testing an REI Yosemite75 next and hope it

How does this pack compare to something like the Gregory Baltoro 75 or the Osprey Aether 70 in terms of comfort?

Asked by: WalkerStrider
I've had mine for 3 years now and personally its my favorite pack I've ever carried in terms of comfort - but everyone's body is different. Bottom line - you might hate it - you might love it. You MUST put a pack on and weight it to make any decision.

Will this pack fit a 6"3 man that weighs about 170?

Asked by: Heather
This pack should fit. The most important measurements to take into consideration when sizing a backpack are the torso length and waist size. REI puts these measurements in the specs tab on backpacks we sell. The link below is a great article on how to find your torso and hip size for a backpack. https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/backpacks-adjusting-fit.html
