Still my daily pack of choice
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had this pack for a year now, and it still looks like the day I bought it. I had recently purchased the 2020 Osprey Arcane (large) to try and supplement the Cyber with a slimmer, simpler pack, but found myself returning it. It just can't compete with the Cyber for my daily needs. I love Osprey packs and I should probably start toning it down on the purchasing since they last forever. I am 5'0 and the Cyber is super comfortable. Fits my 15" laptop in a tomtoc laptop sleeve, as well as my samsung tab s4, my kindle, winter gear, and books. The tech pouch is convenient for storing extra cables, but I found myself sticking frequently used power adapters in the main pouch and wishing there wasn't a dedicated zippered compartment for tech stuff. I feel conflicted about this compartment, because I see the utility of having it, but If it wasn't separate, then that extra space could be utilized a bit better in the main compartment. Otherwise, the space dividers, as well as all of the extra compartments are well thought out. I especially love the little zippered compartment at the top for sunglasses and my wallet. The Cyber replaced my Pixel, which was also great but too large for my needs. I also strongly disliked the side laptop zipper on the Pixel as it was more gimmicky than useful.
