Just bumping up an old thread as I noticed the Hornet is no longer on Osprey's US website. I thought the Hornet was a good looking pack but so feature rich, it begged to be overloaded. As a red pack, personally I would have liked a "light winter" version of it with a bigger pack bag (at about 65L), a bigger lid and of course a better frame closer to the body to be more snow friendly. For my three season, I just use roll tops but winter is different.
Never knew what to make of the really lightweight side sleeves in place of water bottle holders. Thoughts?
