I recently came across this pouch while looking to see if there were any interesting products which I felt you all would be interested in seeing and came across this one. It’s what Osprey refers to as a liquid pouch, it’s cost $10 and I liked the fact that it was ultralight and was see through. For a kit bag, that could be incredibly handy and as liquids bag for traveling comes in handy from time to time.
I received the pouch and was looking at the packaging and noticed that everything was incorrect from the weight, to the measurements and this carried over to the osprey web site. Osprey is a big company, get your stuff together! Osprey states that the pouch features a Dual-zippered main compartment. Umm, no it doesn’t.
Also the description on their web page isn’t even about this product and I can’t help but feel that the company is producing so many products that they don’t have the capability of even getting their details correct. I don’t like that but lets focus on the pouch.
The pouch I like but not for the sake of a liquids pouch; yes it would probably please the average TSA agent but in my opinion a good quality liquids pouch is one that is sealable and is leak proof. If you have a leak in this, it’s coming out of the pouch easily! Leak proof travel bags, they are out there but aren’t as common as you would think. Anyways, being used as a kit bag, this is where this pouch shines and I recommend it for smaller items such as a fire kit, first aid kits or a light bag. Works perfectly this way, much better than a liquids bag.
Very light weight.
Very good quality if with the pile of mistakes made by Osprey.
Easy to see what you are grabbing and what is inside.
Good size; can hold a lot
Covered by an awesome warranty- They have one of the best warranties in the busy; they will repair any product for any reason and it doesn’t matter how long you have had it. If they can’t fix it, they replace it.
Has a loop to assist with opening…but is missing one on the other side for closing. I would like to see that added.
Will leak liquid – For liquids, stick with a ziplock bag; will please TSA but outside of flying, go with something else entirely.
So little attention was paid to the packaging and the web site…it doesn’t make Osprey look very good and doesn’t inspirit confidence.
