The Escapist is one of the best travel backpacks out there. When you need to pack extra carefully for your hotel stay, you're going to want to make sure nothing you need is left out. Osprey gives you extra padding to protect your goods as well.

The Momentum is designed for those who might want something that gives them the ability to fully enjoy their experience but won't weigh them down. It's a bit difficult to carry around but it gives you something you otherwise wouldn't have.

Both the Osprey Momentum and the Osprey Radial are unquestionably rugged. And they are stylish. Further, they provide much versatility, as they can be used for hiking, business and even school.

Her Packing List

This has turned out to be a really great daypack. If you travel with a laptop, this is a good option to protect it. It also makes repacking after passing through security so much easier since the laptop has its own home in there. And you can’t go wrong with those extra pockets!

Bike Radar

A top quality commuter pack that’s as comfortable as it is functional. It’s pleasing then that the zips, seams and finish of the Momentum are all well constructed and finished, and add to the overall quality, robust feel of the bag.
