I love this pack! It is everything I wanted in a hike pack. It is just big enough to carry essentials yet small enough that it will not weigh you down if you trail run. The convenience of the magnetic bite valve is awesome! The material is durable and there are just enough straps. I am 5'3" and this pack fits perfect! The color is fantastic as well! Highly recommended
I bought this pack based on the great reviews and Osprey's reputation for making good products. The materials are high quality and I really like the pockets, the Nalgene bladder, and the magnetic bite valve. The capacity is perfect for an extra layer, snacks ,keys, phone, and dog leashes with room to spare.
I am 5'8" and don't always buy women's specific products, but liked the colors of this one better than the men's, so I bought the Verve. This pack is designed for a short women. The torso length works ok for me, but the shoulder straps are not long enough, the sternum strap fits in an odd place, and I spent my entire first hike with this pack fussing with the straps to try to make it more comfortable. I would recommend this pack for a short woman with narrow shoulders, but it does not fit me.
This is a beautiful bag. The design is great and very comfortable. Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot of room in this pack (this is without the bladder being full). I usually carry elbow and knee pads in the my pack and there wasn't enough room for these. Great bag if you don't need to bring much with you.
I just got a Osprey Verve 10 pack but the drinking hose is too long. Unlike other bladders I have used, every time I try to stuff it back in the back pack, it kinks and i cannot get water out of the hose. If I leave it too long, then it won't attach to the magnet and will get caught on branches during my Mountain Bike ride. Has anyone had this problem and do you have suggestions? I just purchased the pack and have already wasted an hour, that I would have spent biking, trying to figure this out.
This is a great hydration pack. The bite valve attaches to the sternum strap which rocks. You can adjust the valves angle and it has a cool magnet that keeps it attached to the sternum strap for easy access. This bag is big enough for the essentials, pump, tire, and tubes, but that is a bought it. I wish I would have gone with the verve 13 just to have a little more pocket space. With that being said, this is a great light weight hydration pack for biking and hiking.
I've seen this pack in store but not the Verve 7 - i'm wondering how the size compares. I was impressed at how flat this compressed down to when the side straps are tightened. I see the Verve 7 doesn't have the side compression straps - is it as flat when empty?
Also which would be a better size for my needs - I'd want to use it for a thick shell jacket, mitts, snacks, odds&ends like phone/camera I guess.
Also I'd be wanting to use this pack for skiing in the winter as well - I see osprey has an insulated delivery system but I'm wondering if there would be any problems with the bladder itself freezing as compared to a "real" winter pack like the karve.
1) The 7L is as flat as the Verve 10 with the compression straps fully tightened.
2) I would go with the 10L. I have the Raptor 6 and I can fit a full reservoir, a shell, some snacks, and an extra set of cycling gloves. Any kind of winter layers would push it well beyond what I normally bring mountain biking.
3) The reservoir will not freeze. Freezing a thin line of water is a lot easier than a big ball of water, not to mention the heat from you back will help a lot. That is why you see a lot of insulation systems for tubes but not many for the reservoir.
The bladder has structure to it so say bye bye to the tube of water on your back--the bladder forms to your back and is much more stable. It is ridiculous how easy it is to put a filled bladder in the pack when the pack is completely filled. Also there is a magnet on the bite valve that connects to the sternum strap so no more flapping around. All of this comes with the pack so no upgrade needed to purchase separately like with Camelbak...
Angela, the Osprey system is a huge step above any other hydration system. The reservoir has a shape to it so the water doesn't barrel on your back and its easy to load, even with a full pack... no hopping up and down to get the res in the pack. Also, Osprey has a "system" that marries the res with the pack, holds the water in place to reduce sloshing, and gives constant gentle pressure on the res for a steady water flow. This is definitely a step above.
