What is the Daylite Plus?

The Osprey Daylite Plus is a simple, yet highly effective, lightweight pack that is incredibly versatile and comfortable. It’s one of those packs that ends up accompanying you wherever you are whatever you’re doing. Sling it on your back for a day’s hiking, use it as a hydration pack for cycling, as a pack for travel essentials, for carrying everything you need for a day’s work or just for lugging the shopping home; the list is pretty much endless. Osprey have provided you with a ventilated Spacermesh backpanel and a host of other features to make using this brilliant little pack both comfortable and practical.

What is it made of?

Osprey have used a tough and durable 210D Nylon Oxford throughout to that the Daylite Plus survives everyday life and stays looking good.

What are the features?

The Daylite Plus features a zipped front panel access that lets you get access to your kit as quickly and easily as possible; you can pretty much open up the whole of the pack and see all the contents.

Hydration access is simple and quick thanks to an external sleeve that lets you whip out your bladder for re-filling without having to enter the main compartment.

Despite its size the Daylite Plus does not scrimp on storage, you get an external zipped organiser pocket with mesh sections and a key clip, a small zipped pocket on the front, two side mesh pockets that work for water bottles and a really handy front stash pocket which is a great place to store wet things. Inside the pack you get a padded laptop/document sleeve that has an extra bit of padding at the bottom to protect your lovely tech when you put the pack on the floor.

Twin, quick release, side compression straps pull the weight closer to your back, increasing comfort and carrying efficiency; they also stop gear from rolling about in a half full pack.

There’s a built-in emergency whistle on the buckle of the adjustable sternum strap and a lightweight, non-load bearing, webbing waist strap to help stabilise the pack if you’re doing something a little more energetic. This waist-belt can be completely removed if you just don’t want/need it.

Another really useful feature is the way that the Daylite Plus can be attached to larger Osprey packs (Aether AG, Ariel AG, Farpoint 80 or Sojourn) to create additional storage.

What is the backsystem?

The ventilated Spacermesh backpanel is made up of mesh covered, die-cut, high-density foam that provides airflow and support, and also stops the packs contents from digging into your back. The shoulder straps feature a lighter and stretchy foam to suspend the load comfortably. The inside of the shoulder straps are covered with a soft, breathable mesh; so, even if you’re carrying the pack next your skin, it’s still comfy.


The Daylite Plus is lightweight, hugely versatile and can be doubled up with larger packs for world-wide adventures. We love the Daylight plus for it's simple, no-faff design, practical size and useful features.

Care & Advice

Getting the correct fit for your rucksack is as important as getting the fit right for your boots. A badly fitting pack can inflict misery and discomfort and completely ruin your adventure. This guide is designed to help you get the best fit and comfort from your chosen pack so that carrying all your kit becomes a pleasure and not a chore.


If the pack has an adjustable back length, adjust this to your correct level. Your back length is not related to your height but your torso length. Many packs, and specifically the bigger and more technical packs are available in different back lengths or feature adjustable back systems. Contrary to popular belief, your torso length and not your overall height is the key to getting a well fitted pack. Tall people don’t necessarily have long torsos, just as shorter people don’t always have a short torso length.

Your torso length can be found by measuring from your C7 vertebra (the bony protrusion at the back of your neck when looking down) to the height of your iliac crest (top of your hip bones, where you put your hands on your hips). This measurement will give you an idea of which pack back length to choose.

Once you've got the back length sorted, either by selecting the correct size pack or adjusting the back system, you can begin to follow these simple steps to help achieve a comfortable carry.


Before you start fitting the pack, loosen off all the straps as this will make it easier to get the correct tension later.


Fasten the backpack hipbelt, the general position is the same as where you’d put your ‘hands on hips’ This area is called the pelvic girdle, and what you can feel when you rest your hand on the area is the bony protuberance, the iliac crest. The iliac crest can support the weight from a pack comfortably, and for sustained periods. The padded section of the hipbelt should encompass this and fit securely.

Tighten the straps so the hipbelt feels secure and held firmly around your body. Ensure that the lumbar pad is centered to your lower back to give you maximum support. Remember that your hips carry most of the weight of the pack, so this should be firm but comfortable.


Next, adjust the shoulder straps, pull them until they start to become snug, but ensure that they are not too tight as to lift the pack off your hips. Remember tightening them will stabilise the pack but will increase pressure over the shoulders. If the back length of the pack is correct the shoulder straps will be flush to your shoulders whilst the hipbelt sits in place comfortably. The point where the shoulder straps attach to the main body of the pack should be roughly half way down your shoulder blades; this ensures  that the shoulder straps rolls evenly over the top of your shoulders to distribute the weight correctly.


Fasten the chest strap and pull until taut but not tight, the elastic section should not be extended. This helps keep the shoulder straps from catching in your shoulder joints and keeps the stability of the pack when moving over rough ground.


Top tensioner straps link the shoulder straps to the top of the pack. When tightened, their main function is to stabilise the top part of the pack. The optimum angle for these straps in 45º, but they will stabilise the load even when horizontal or at a more obtuse angle. Tighten them until you feel the top part of the pack rest against your pack, over tightening them will create excessive pressure on the front of your shoulders.


Side tension straps are linked to the hipbelt. By tightening these straps you can stabilise the load but reduce the hipbelt flexibility. Where balance is critical tightening them can help you feel more secure. However, if you are striding out over easy terrain it’s better to loosen these straps to allow full hip flexibility.


Side compression straps come next, pulling these tight does two things: firstly, it stabilises the load, secondly it can lift the lower part of the pack, repositioning the load closer to your back.


Following these steps should give you a comfortable but secure fit on your pack. Sometimes adjustments will need to be made on the go depending on the terrain or the load you are carrying. The perfect fit is very much a personal preference so experiment with different tensions on the pack to find what suits you best.

    Love this rucksack. It is light so I can fit it in my hand luggage when flying. Good mesh pockets for umbrella and drinks. Top pocket useful for raincover, overtrousers etc. Can get just enough in it for day hikes.

    Perfect for a day out hiking where theres no need for a sleeping system or tent/tarp. Tested one out on the Yorkshire 3 peaks and they were superb; comfortable, the right amount of compartments, my back didnt get sweaty. I didnt use a bladder - I used that compartment (just under the straps) for my sit-pad. I could even fairly easily get my water bottles out of the side mesh pouches without taking the pack off my back. Good quality inexpensive kit.

    Very light compact bag but the one thing that lets it down significantly for me is the fact that the mesh side pockets are really big. Any water bottle or other item is not held securely and mine just fell out. I had to return it for this reason. The returns process was very smooth and hassle free though. If Osprey fixed this problem then the bag would be fantastic!

    Excellent service from trekitt, Bag is fantastic exactly what I was looking for. Loads of pockets and compartments for every day essentials. The colour is a lovely darker shade of purple/berry and has a reflective feature on the branding. I will be taking this on my trek to the great wall of China next year, or maybe Ill just buy another in a different colour. I would definitely be using trekitt again. Thanks for a quick easy transaction.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
