The Osprey Pixel and Bitstream are small-mid-sized day backpacks attuned to the transport of lightweight electronics.

The bags share the essential features of dual water bottle pockets and a specialized scratch-free zippered pocket, intended to store objects with delicate glass surfaces. While the Osprey Pixel features a greater-volume main compartment (26L, with a zippered expansion that can provide an additional 4L of room) which is derived from a more durable fabric, the Osprey Bitstream's carrying capacity is more specific.

At the cost of additional volume, the Bitstream includes a specialized padded laptop compartment, a cord organizer, and dual internal document sleeves, which the Osprey Pixel's design lacks. While both bags are comparable in quality, the Bitstream's design is more oriented towards organization and the Pixel's for carrying capacity.
