The Apogee is rated at 28 liters and the manufacturing facility printed measurements are 19.7H X 11.43W X 9.46D IN., 1.81 LBS. (50H X 29W X 24D CM, 0.82 KG). My measurements with the pack cheap full have been 20.5″ tall, 10″ deep and 11″ vast. It was 28 ounces on my scale.

The REI Path 25 is rated at 25 liters, 19.5 x 13.25 x 7.5 inches and 2lbs. I measured the pack at 10″ deep when packed cheap full, 11″ vast and 18.5″ tall. It was 32 ounces on my scale.

The Apogee has two layers, with a big half-clamshell zipper on the primary compartment and one other outer compartment with a row of a number of small pockets neat the highest sized for good telephone, energy financial institution, glasses, and so on and continues all the way in which to the underside. There may be one other pocket on the prime with a dimpled inside that’s designed to be scratch free. The principle compartment has a thinly padded laptop computer sleeve that ends only a bit off the underside and there’s a easy material sleeve on the facet of the laptop computer compartment. A lot of the inside is darkish blue. The outer facet water bottle pockets are very modern stretch mesh that open in the direction of the consumer’s again and stop a bottle from falling out when the use bends over. There are two compression straps close to the highest which have pockets to tuck them into when not wanted. A 6″ padded tubular webbing deal with runs throughout the highest. The detachable waist belt is 3/4″ webbing. The shoulder straps are padded 3D mesh with a sliding sternum strap

My common packing technique is to make use of a small Osprey garment folder and no matter measurement and amount compression and normal packing cubes are wanted and can match. Within the case of the Apogee, my inclination is to place the folder within the entrance compartment with medium compression cubes stacked horizontally in the primary compartment and tubular cubes on the perimeters and my toiletries bag on prime.

The Path 25 is a bit of boxier and has some path oriented {hardware} for trekking poles and instruments, and a double daisy chain down the entrance. There’s a zippered pocket on the prime and two stretch mesh pocket on the left facet and yet another on the correct. A rain cowl is saved in a zippered pocket close to the underside. There are two compression straps on the underside and two extra close to the highest. Inside the primary compartment is a material hydration/laptop computer sleeve with a bladder hanger and a hose exit port on the correct. There’s a tall mesh pocket inside on the correct. There’s a zippered mesh pocket on the lid on the identical airplane with the outer prime pocket. The zipper on the primary compartment is a half clamshell, giving good entry with the contents. The liner is a really gentle grey giving good visibility. The detachable waist belt is 1″ webbing. The shoulder straps hand an S curve with a sliding sternum strap. A webbing deal with/cling loop is on the prime.

With one massive compartment my packing technique could be to place the folder up in opposition to the again panel, two medium compression cubes stack horizontally in entrance of the folder with tubular cubes on the facet. My rain jacket, wind shell and fleece could be folded and stowed subsequent to the lid.

The packs are each viable journey packs. The Osprey is sleeker trying and 5 ounces lighter. The REI has some path oriented options and has a boxier look.

Each could be carried on as overhead baggage and are nonetheless sufficiently small for use as day luggage. With shrinking baggage measurement and weight limits I believe luggage of this kind are the way forward for onebag journey.

I do complement sub 30 liter onebag packs like these with a 12 liter messenger bag as a “private bag” with all my tech gadgets, TSA liquids bag, private medicines and any “present stopper” gadgets ought to my most important bag have to be gate checked. I do favor a crossbody bag over a backpack as a day bag for crowded city settings. It offers a 40% increase in quantity and higher group as nicely.

I ought to point out that I journey for leisure solely and favor informal gown.
