I have the opportunity to buy an original Osprey XR24, needs work but generally in reasonable condition. Having done a search there is a bit of information on here and the Osprey owners website, but it doesn't really give a review of what the XR was like.
The later lynx is I understand a different animal so am looking for advice from owners and past users to such questions as, is the rib suitable for cruising, as technology moved on are they are no longer a viable option etc.
The rib will be used for cruising, so won't be thrashed, or raced which is what I understand most were used for.
Thanks in advance.
