Ryan, are we to assume that if there was no response to our email about the item we wanted and now the item is listed as sold , we are not the buyer? Just looking for clarification.

New Hornet Payment on 02/22/2011 23:03:59 MST Print View

Interesting. I also sent payment for one of the Osprey Hornets at 5:37 P.M. CST. Must be a delay?

What is the spine/torso measurement of this pack, per Dan's way of measuring it?

Bryan Crook

Measurement on 02/25/2011 13:12:35 MST Print View

Just got my Hornet 46 today. Thanks Ryan!

Not sure if I measure the same way but here is what I found: Measured from top edge of pack (not the lid but the backpanel) to the bottom and got 19" in length. Probably not the correct way but basically the backpanel of the Hornet 46 M/L is 19"

I also remember reading somewhere that the M/L was for torso length 19" or longer.

Hope that helps.

Measurement on 02/25/2011 13:33:10 MST Print View

My prototype Hornet also measures 19" from the top of the yolk to the seam at the bottom where the red and black material meet. So you've probably got a "Hornet 42 L," like our prototypes, and not a true Hornet 46 L. It's still a sweet pack. Today, I'm working on a modification to replace the two delrin frame stays with an upside down U, using titanium rod. We'll see if this adds some increased load stability (it adds no weight), or if I just have too much time and titanium on my hands.

Re: Measurement on 02/25/2011 13:48:38 MST Print View

My "Hornet 46" says: "Hornet 46" -- on the bag.... does the "Hornet 42" prototype say this?

Measurement on 02/25/2011 14:09:36 MST Print View

Yes--"Hornet 46." But we were told by Ryan, and also by the Osprey guy, that they were in fact a bit smaller. They estimated the prototypes were perhaps 42 liters, not 46.

Hey Adam

I'm going to load mine up this weekend and see if it fits and feels good. I've got a freaky long torso for only being 5'11" so I'll let you know if it doesn't work for me.

Another Hornet 46 Question on 02/26/2011 08:45:12 MST Print View

Question to the group: Does anyone happen to know the backpanel length of the final production version (not one of the prototypes) of the Hornet 46?
