The brand new Escapist 25 was primarily designed as a mountain bike utility pack but is equally suited to all outdoor activities or even your daily commute. It is packed with plenty of features to keep all outdoor enthusiasts happy and is extremely comfortable and breathable in use.

Osprey have used their highly acclaimed AirScape back panel to provide comfort, support and ventilation; ridged foam creates air channels and this is protected by a lightweight mesh that allows air to circulate keeping you cool and comfortable. Support and comfort is further enhanced by the Biostretch harness, both the shoulder straps and hip belt use die cut foam inserts that mould to your body and stretch when you move keeping the Escapist firmly in place even when hammering downhill sections or scrambling in the mountains. To make sure you get the perfect fit the Escapist is available in two back lengths with adjustable torso length, this simple Velcro system allows the shoulder harness to be adjusted so you can truly customise the fit.

The Escapist is packed with plenty of genius Osprey features including the ingenious Lidlock that makes attaching your helmet to the pack quick and easy. Access to the external hydration sleeve is also quick and easy so you can easily refill your hydration bladder without going into the main pack. The main compartment can be divided so you can separate dirty kit from clean or simply divide your load to keep it organised, the lower compartment can be accessed via a separate zip. There is even an internal organiser section for tools, pumps, GPS etc. and a rain cover for those inevitable wet days out or to provide a high vis cover for busy commuting.

Osprey have not scrimped on the storage options with plenty of pockets for all your stuff; there is a soft lined pocket for glasses and phones, stretch stash pockets, zipped hip belt pockets, shoulder strap gel pouch pockets and a front zipped pocket.

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.

    Had a Low Alpine bag before but not enough storage / pockets. This bag has plenty making everything easily accessible. I climbed Ben Nevis with this bag so it was on back for a good period of time. Very comfortable. I would highly recommend this bag.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
