    Today Luke is talking about the Osprey Packs Ultralight Liquids Pouch and how it could be an awesome kit bag! Also, he discussed the issues he discovered while reviewing this product.

    Link : www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071K8D2LZ
    Price : $10
    Weight : 1.5oz
    Measurements : 8.5” x 4.5 x 1.25” at the top, 2” at the bottom - Tapered Cut
    Materials : 40D Nylon Ripstop - with TPU walls
    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.

    Pros :
    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.
    Cons :
    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.

    It’s a waste at security in England. Went through in December and they told me it should be in a ziplock and the actually frowned on this liquids pouch.

    For kit bags, I like using the IV pouches that come in the Mystery Ranch RATS pack. You can't buy them individually from Mystery Ranch, but they pop up on Ebay every so often. They are durable, have a clear window, and have a velcro field for attaching labels (you can order name tapes with whatever you want on them to easily identify the contents). They are the perfect size to hold four 2400cal ration bars.

    Regarding the Liquids pouch. It is only good to carry on a plane through TSA. It is not good for hiking in inclement weather or rain and it's not waterproof. Also it is $10.00 Too much money in my book. I can get a liquids pouch at the dollar store that will last in my pack no problem if you take care of it and as far as the lifetime warranty goes, who sends back a $10 item? it's a throw away... I agree with Out And About Don. Just my opinion. SPARTACUS!

    Another youtube beggar sells crap on his private little offramp of narcissism. Let the monkey perform they are cute when this stupid and greedy. This one is too stupid to understand that the item he is yammering on about wasn't designed to hold liquid, just to get small containers holding liquid through airports.

    You mentioned ziploc bags so many times. So why would anyone buy this? ROFL? $10 can buy a heap of ziploc bags in various sizes!

  • Michael & Colleen Doherty

    I understand where your going with it but a heavy duty zip lock bag works and if it blows out grab another. If it was a couple of bucks maybe. Typical of the internet with websites being out of date or incorrect info. Good review vid. 👍💪🇺🇸

    Yes its a nice bag and good quality.
    But ziplocks are effective when compressing, its possible to find qualities that can handle lots of use AND frosty weather.
    And its easy to have extra ziplocks in the pack...
    But yes, its sometimes just nice to have something of a good quality, despite its flaws.

    Good review. I wonder if you could fit a specific size zip lock bag inside to make it liquids bag.

    Luke...you don't travel much do you? A "Liquids" bag doesn't mean you can store actual liquids in it, but rather it's a bag for holding all your little travel sized liquids bottles, as opposed to solids like toothpaste or deodorant. That's why it's TSA approved. It's not meant for backwoods/trail backpacking, but TRAVEL backpacking. Good review none-the-less. Cheers! DonP

    I'd like to argue that GORUCK actually has what should be the gold standard for warranties. There's truly is "buy it for life".
    From their website: "All GORUCK built gear, apparel, and footwear - everything we manufacture - comes with our Scars Lifetime Guarantee. If there is a defect in workmanship or materials or if you actually manage to wear our stuff out, GORUCK will fix or replace (at our discretion) your item, free of charge. No receipt necessary - we can recognize our own stuff - and your date of purchase does not matter. Hence lifetime."
    There are many examples from the private Facebook page of SCARS (their repair program) repairing a pack that is 5-8 yrs old, beat to hell, and on their 3+ owner. They repair or replace any item they've ever produced, for free. Forever.
    Osprey can't say this about every product they make because "OSPREY PACKS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD VIA OUR EXCELLENT GROUP OF DISTRIBUTORS. PLEASE CONTACT THE DISTRIBUTOR IN YOUR REGION FOR THE BEST IN CUSTOMER SUPPORT." In fact earlier in 2018 Osprey changed their international warranty to read: "Should you find any defect in the way your pack has been built we will repair or replace it without any charge, within its reasonable lifetime. While cases of wear and tear, accidental damage, abuse and lifetime expiration are not covered we will always try our best to help. When at all possible we will offer to repair the pack at a reasonable cost."
    Basically if you live outside the US, the almighty guarantee doesn't come into affect. Is Osprey's warranty better then 99% of other companies? Yes. Is it the gold standard? I'd argue it is not.

    Should work great as electronics pack too. It would be nice if it had better water protection, both from inside and out.
    Still a ziplock is a better deal all around. Lighter, cheaper, easily replaceable, can be made waterproof.

    You could get a see through kit bag like that from the dollar store... for $1. Might not be the bags original purpose, but it would work. The quality wouldn’t be as good of course, and no warranty. But for $1, who cares?
    Or like others have said, a freezer ziplock bag.

    Why would I want it "tapered"? I don't care if it stands up. The contents I would likely put in there wouldn't be tapered.

    I think that this product is to be used more for carrying small bottles of liquid like hand sanitizer rather than filling it with liquid.

    Looks like a great pouch that could literally save you from digging through bag after bag looking for certain items. I think a full line-up of these, in different sizes would be great. Minus the tapered cut though. Thanks for sharing!!
