For anyone looking for a superlight pack for ultra running, adventure racing or just lighweight backpack for long day hikes Osprey has created the no frills Hornet series. This Hornet 32 is the middle sized pack and has space for anything from a long day hike to a superlight weekend in the backcountry. At just over a pound (1 lbs 4 oz) it's easy to see this pack is best used for going fast, but the Hornet is still featured enough to keep the most demanding gram counters happy. Compression from ultralight side webbing and an adjustable overskirt allow you to tighten down your gear for lighter loads while still allowing you to expend when you just HAVE to bring more gear. A front mesh pocket and side mesh pockets provide ample space for shed layers and smaller items, and hydration capability allows you to keep going full steam ahead. The 32L pack also has a removable zippered top pocket with an underlid mesh map pocket and key clip for additional storage/organization.
