Awesome pack for long distance
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Used this pack the entire length of the AT in 2012 and loved it the whole way. I have 2 other Osprey packs (Argon 85 and Aether 60) and this one fits the best. I have the previous model, but several of my firends had this newer version and not much has changed. In fact, I will say that about 80% of the hiker class from 2012 had some model of Osprey pack. The Atmos and Exos were the most popular, but did see a few Talon 44's and Kestrel models. The girl I hiked with had a Gregory and wished she'd bought an Osprey after hearing such rave reviews by fellow hikers. 2184.2 miles equals a well tested product and high approval rating! If you are planning to thru-hikeor just looking for a great pack for short trips, do yourself a favor and buy this pack!
In addition, I'm 5'9" and have a 31" waist. I bought a Medium and was a perfect fit.
