Introduction

With their 2006 introductions, Osprey will have more pack models than brands of cereal in your grocery store. The new Stratos line alone has five models. I tested the Stratos 34 general use daypack/overnight backpack - the largest of the Stratos line, and found a lot of nice features. The Stratos 34 is very similar to the popular Osprey Atmos 35, which was introduced in 2004. In this review I take a hard look at the Stratos and compare it to the Atmos 35. My pick of the two my surprise you.
