The Skimmer has more pockets than you can shake a stick at, including a scratch-free pocket for sunglasses or electronics, a front organizer for small items, and a front shove-it pocket for a light layer or rain jacket, just to name a few.

How to Measure:
For best results, have someone take the measurement for you.
Torso:
Start at the iliac crest (the top of your hipbone that you can feel like a shelf on the side of your body). From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down. Make sure to keep your back straight while having the measurement taken.
Hip:
Measure around your hips, at your iliac crest, not your waist.

Unanswered Question

My wife measured 17 inches from top of hip to neck. Should I go with xs/s our s/m? I am 5 foot 2 inches tall.

Avg. ride time: 4m per week

Gave it to my wife, now I want one!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We got this pack for my wife for day-hikes and quick over-night trips. I knew Osprey was solid from some friends having their packs, but Karissa at Backcountry shared this pack among a few others to us and when we compared them all this was the winner. Plenty of exterior gear loops for trekking poles and such, and the zippers I feel are sturdy and will last a long time. The sizing of the bag is nice to fit different bodies, (my wife is 5'3" and got the Small/Medium) She used this on a 12 mile day-hike the first trip we had it and it was comfortable all day. The minimal hip belt is a nice feature too. Overall the materials are tough, but light-weight, and the large exterior pocket is the best for stuffing an extra layer in on the go. Hydration pack compatibility is a plus and oh by the way, THIS COMES WITH A HYDRATION PACK! That's a great deal! Thanks to Karissa for steering us towards this one! Ask her, she knows what's up and is more fun to deal with than a computer! klamb@backcountry.com

This review is clutch, Robbie. Thanks for putting in the time and effort to help out the community! 10 points for Gryfinndor!

Perfect Day Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love this pack. I used it for day hiking in Kauai. It fits well. Has tons of pockets to hold all the things. It can hold a lot without feeling too bulky. If you're looking for mostly a hydration pack, you should get something smaller. This pack is way more than just a hydration pack.

Perfect Day Pack

Great run commuting pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this backpack for run commuting (about 5.5-6 miles between my work and home). I love that this pack is simple but functions great. The zippered pockets offer plenty of space and organization for everything I need for my day including breakfast/lunch/snacks and change of clothes. The straps and waist belt are padded so they are comfortable even when running. Once I get the straps adjusted, the pack does not bounce around so I don't have any issues with chafing from the pack. I'm 5"7 and a size 4 or 6 clothes and the xs/s fits me well.

Might have skimmed the wrong pack...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I was presented with a large tote of backpacks on my recent trip to California (see "State of Gold" on the Backcountry homepage), I ended up choosing the Skimmer 22. Seems like I should have chose the Skarab and given this one to Rachel or Kate! Haha. My mistake. Even though I ended up choosing this women's pack, I was impressed with the Skimmer's performance on the trail. I hiked with it in Death Valley, Joshua Tree and used it as a beach bag in San Clemente. I really liked the non-scratch pocket for sunglasses and the ability to use a 2.5-liter bladder (I drink lots of H2O). Plus the BioForm harness had enough adjustment for me at 6'1" with a 34" waist even though the waist hipbelt was pretty far up my torso. Ideally you want the waist hipbelt on your hips obviously. I would still recommend this pack to any woman or man looking for a versatile, comfortable hiking pack for the summer. Osprey knows what they are doing even if I don't sometimes!
