The Radial is one of the better day backpacks out there thanks to the comfort and extra features it gives you. You don't need to look very far to see that the Radial offers a lot more than you'll find. There are certainly those out there who might point to the Osprey Radial and decide that it needs more room.

The Pandion is great for those out there who want a backpack that will give them a lot more space to put their things. Buy it if space is important to you.

The Osprey Pandion and Osprey Tropos are both designed with convenience in mind, as these bags are roomy. Also, they provide the protection you desire for transporting your laptop via the padded protection sleeve.

The Osprey Pandion helps to keep you organized with the provision of the front panel organization pocket. The straps are extra wide for your comfort.

The Osprey Tropos is sleek to prevent undue bulkiness. The compartments allow you ample space for shoes, a lunch, books, etc. This is a great bag to take with you if you fly a lot.

Adventure in You

Overall, the Pandion 28 is a solid all-around bag that works in a variety of situations. If you need a bag you can use on hikes, beach trips, travel, or just a trip to the library, this bag is a great choice.
