Amazing pack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just picked this pack up and I am extremely happy with it. It's been on two hikes with me storing around 35 lbs of gear and it felt amazing. Easily stored 3 days of food, 12 L of water, tent, pad, water-treatment (MSI), a GSI Dualist and fuel and a Tadpole 23 tent as well as various other items. Carried it through 14 miles of hot and humid (95F/91% Humidity) Texas Pine trails.

Amazing pack!

Favorite pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love the pack! Very comfortable and roomy. Can't wait to be back on the AT with it in a few weeks. It is also coming with me on my thru hike of the AT next year.

killer pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this guy for everything- backpacking, filming, skiing, even some longer day hikes, and it always performs with flying colors. I am yet to find something that this bad larry can't handle!
The only thing that I'm not a big fan of is how it packs outward behind quite a ways, but that's a preference thing and not really a problem. Also, there aren't as many exterior straps for hanging stuff as I would prefer, but there's plenty of room inside!
Buy it up, you won't be disappointed!

Here's a picture of one of the roomy side pockets. It definitely helps with organizing all sorts of stuff.

Just not right for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I thought I would love this backpack. It has a lot of cool features. I like the sleeping bag compartment, the 2 front/side pockets, sleeping pad straps, stretch front pocket, and the suspension. I like the front/side pockets because I could put my quickdraws, cams, etc in them.
However, it didn't carry comfortably for me. When I tried it out with 30 pounds (just walking around the house), it felt fine. However, I just got back from backpacking with this and it did a number on my hips and shoulders. I found that the metal frame rubbed against the back of my hips and that the hip belt was not well shaped for the front of my hips either. I am a pretty skinny guy... maybe that's why, but anyway, this pack just isn't for me. I'm sad to say that I'll be returning it.
I'll probably check out the aether 60. The hipbelt on that has gotten all sorts of praise. Plus, I hear it's super stable and carries very well.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. After a 3-day trip to Mt. Whitney, my hips were brutalized. I spent a great deal of time trying to make adjustments, but my gripes are exactly the same as yours.

Idea

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I continue to love this model; it has started to show signs of what I would call premature wear; I might even send it back in to BC for a replacement. Still, this backpack is amazing, I have used it in about 40 climbing trips in the past year in three different continents and I use it as my main piece of luggage.

How much I love this backpack? Well, I have started to name the different compartments and I've found it to be an amazing idea!

Susan - Top compartment, where I keep stuff that I need very very handy.

Paul - Front compartment, the one without a zipper, I used to refer to it constantly as "where I keep the Nalgene", until it started getting old and started to refer to it as Paul (for whatever reason).

Alicia - The right belt pocket; where I keep the keys (yes, the name Alicia fits great).

I haven't named my other compartments yet, don't have a need to refer to them as much, but naming Susan and Paul has been great to get my climbing buddy to hand me stuff when she's next to my Osprey!

awesome pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

love this pack - it's kind of a external/internal frame hybrid, super light and comfortable, with the mesh back/air circulation that I loved in external frame packs of my youth. Well made, excellent guarantee, lots of cool useful pockets. could not be happier with it.

Amazing

OMG! I finally found a pack I like! Jesus chris, took forever to find it, but its worth it!

Ok, onto the review; this pack feels like heaven, pretty light, considering its not a minimalist pack. You get a lot of support and I love the AirSpeed back panel, no more sweat!

I've grown used to the front zipper, which this one doesn't have. I have to admit, it took some time to get used to not being able to access pretty much anything without having to redo my pack. But, I think, not being able to do that, has helped with making my packing much more ordered. And this thing has plenty of lightweight pockets for the stuff you need to keep handy.

Amazing

I pack things I need to access quickly into the top pouch and the outside pockets. I save the interior for my "camp stuff" - bag, tent, airpad etc...

Awesomesauce

This pack is great, perfect for a weekend trip. The fit is great, the Airscape back panel keeps me cool while keeping the load evenly distributed. There are a lot of pockets and storage options. I love the hip belt pockets, they are great for snacks, GPS, maps, headlamp, or any other small item you need quick access to. The ice-axe loops are great for storing your trekking poles when you want them out of the way completely. The best part is Osprey's warranty, I had to replace some buckles and webbing that my dog decided to munch on. They where awesome! It was quick and easy, they didn't even charge me. You can't go wrong with Osprey!

Tons of room, plenty of comfort

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have a bad back, so when shopping for a multi-day pack I tried on plenty. I'm short, and skinny - using a Men's Small fitted by my local outdoor store suits me just perfect. My pack weight is about 18 pound for solo, closer to 26 if I'm with my wife. This pack holds the load well, and keeps my back from drowning in sweat. The pockets are plentiful and the bag feels very durable. I especially like the "stretchy" outer pocket, great for a pair of flip flops. The sleeping bag compartment makes it easy to cram my sleeping bag into the bottom of the pack in the morning.

Awesome pack

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have only used this pack once, but it was enough to convince me of it's superiority!

The air frame is super nice when it gets warm...say good bye to sweaty backs. My last pack was a 5+ pound dana design top loader with a fairly hefty hip belt. This pack's belt is much simpler but in no way does it sacrifice on comfort. Being that the pack weighs a scant 3.5 pounds sure helps too! Just picking it up while its empty, you have to wonder if it is going to hold up, and it does!

The curvature of the wireframe does make packing a little weird. Where the frame peaks out, it almost separates the load up and down sometimes causing tension in the outside pockets if you have it packed tight, but it is not really a problem.

Inserting the Camelbak bladder was a little difficult because the wireframe kind of squeezes the bladder in it's holder, but also, not a deal breaker.

The variety of pockets on the pack is super helpful for separating gear and making it easy to get out the things you need when you need them.

I am super happy with this guy!

Solid Purchase.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was torn on whether or not to get this pack based on early reviews, but I'm really happy that I decided to give it a chance. This pack is one of the most comfortable long-range packs I've ever owned. I've only used it on a few trips so far, and it has really taken a beating on each of them but still looks brand new. Super durable materials and excellent design. One feature I didn't think I'd even care about but became my new best friend is the airspeed back panel. It not only adds comfort, but has excellent ventilation. Osprey packs did this one right!

Fantastic Pack

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is an incredible pack. Its super comfortable with its hip and shoulder pads. It has many outside pockets including a bottom zipper for a sleeping bag or extra access to your pack. It has a sturdy mesh back which allows for less sticking to your pack on hot days. Awesome pack

Fantastic Pack

Amazing Pack!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After spending this summer as a backpacking guide this summer leading 14 day trips, I can honestly say this pack is a trooper. I was able to carry everything I need for each trip inside the pack (pad, sleeping bag, water, clothes, and food) and still had room to spare. The pack has proven to be quite durable, holding up to catches on tree snags and rubs against rock. The padded hip belt and shoulder straps make the pack very comfortable and at full weight it is hardly noticeable. The back airspeed suspension is also great for preventing back sweat.

Amazing Pack!

Older version = uncomfortable

Disclaimer: I own the 2010 version.
First of all, the good:
Love all of the thoughtful design features typical for an Osprey. Everything works as it should, and then some. Lots of storage, inside and out, and the mesh back panel works wonderfully for ventilation.
However, the bad part is probably the most important: comfort. The hip belt eventually digs into my hips after only 1 day of backpacking. Also, I have protruding SI joints, and the bottom of the back panel sits right on them. It is not a cushioned pad, but rather an extension of the mesh. After a day of hiking, my SI joints are rubbed raw.
It looks like Osprey has addressed these problems in their 2012 version, which is great! I'm sure the 2012 would be a 5 star pack for me.

Glad that I am not the only one to experience this problem. This is a fantastic pack except for that!
