    Fit, function, and fantasticalness.

    Osprey's Aura AG 50 Women's Backpack checks all the boxes. It fits perfectly, works well, and has just the right amount of gizmos and gadgets to keep you organized and happy without being confused or overwhelmed. It all starts with Osprey's Anti-Gravy Suspension, which uses a seamless panel of lightweight mesh that extends from the top of the back panel all the way to the hip belt, providing superior ventilation and a fit that's naturally contoured to your back. The upshot is effortless comfort and ventilation, so you can cover ground on multi-day trips without stressing about your pack.

    The comfort of the Aura is boosted by the Fit-on-the-Fly hip belt, which allows seamless adjustment of the padded portion—not just the buckle straps—so it rides comfortably on all sorts of hips. Internal and external compression straps keep your load from bouncing around, and the removable lid pocket lets you size down if you're looking to travel light and quick. Osprey integrated a special sleeping bag compartment on the bottom of the Aura, included an internal reservoir sleeve, and finished the package off with a compressive FlapJacket back pocket that cinches your load down further and lets you tuck a layer away for easy access. We'd also be remiss not to mention the top and front-panel access points, which let you quickly and easily find gear no matter how deeply it's stashed away.

    Sweet Pack

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This pack isn't super technical, but it holds all of the features you'll need to enjoy a nice weekend of backpacking! For my GF 45 liters works well and isn't too big of a load for her even if she uses every cubic inch. When we are just doing a day hike the compression straps are awesome to get the bag more low profile. It's durable and decently lightweight and you can't pass up the lifetime warranty from Osprey. The Anti-Gravity is extremely comfortable and BREATHABLE! You will get a less sweaty back with this design that's for sure. The large amount of adjustability on the pack helps you find the perfect fit for your size. Definitely would recommend the Aura to any entry level-intermediate backpackers!

    Great pack, not really what I wanted

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

    This seems like it would be an awesome pack for the serious backpacker, which is not me. I was looking for something for day use for climbing, and this just isn't what this bag is designed for. I will say that it feels really comfy, even under heavy loads, but I could just not get used to the suspension system. I didn't really like how the hip belt clamped down on me, and it had too many bells and whistles. Pack felt a bit too bulky for my taste, but I think it would work well for some. Overall is seemed well constructed with durable material, and some cool features, but just wasn't what I was looking for.

    Older version better for Thru Hiking

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I had the older version of this pack and used it to thru hike the John Muir Trail and the Appalachian Trail, as well as a few multiday trips in between--and I LOVED it. The XS weighed in at 3 pounds and was the perfect weight to durability ratio.

    When I finished the AT I sent the pack back to Osprey as it had some wear and tear and Osprey replaced it (Thankyou!) with this newer version.

    I love the new colour and YES the suspension system is really quite impressive and comfortable. However, this new version is quite a bit heavier--3.10 pounds for the XS--not good for thru hikers who always keep on eye on weight.

    In addition, the new features and materials are not an improvement ; the sleeping bag compartment is unnecessary and cumbersome--only adding weight--what’s wrong with stuffing your bag at the bottom of your pack anyway? --it’s the last thing you need at the end of the day; the extra lid cover which you are supposed to use in case you want to hike without the `brain` is also not needed--the side pockets that used to accompany the back pouch which where super handy are gone--and overall the material weights, such as the compression straps-- are heftier than needed--while the mesh material on the back pouch isn`t durable enough (Mine punctured a hole on my first overnight trip with it). Finally –and this is a feature on most Osprey packs that experienced hikers hardly ever use—the internal reservoir sleave —Thru hikers don’t use this feature because, 1, you risk puncturing the bladder or not sealing it properly and saturating all your gear inside the pack—which is dangerous in cool/cold conditions—2., it’s a hassle to unpack your bag to retrieve the water bladder every time you come to a water source---thru hikers filter water 2-6 times a day—(to avoid carrying more than they have to) and can’t be bothered with packing/unpacking. I usually rig a Platypus Big Sip to sit in the back pouch so its easily accessible—and many hikers are starting to do this.

    So-- I`m mourning what was in my opinion, the perfect backpack for women thru hikers who wanted the features and suspension system of a superlight pack—It’s too bad Osprey doesn’t make a version of its EXOS ultra-light packs specifically for women—

    Final Verdict—I’m going to try this out on my PCT thru hike this year—but I’ll be taking my scissors to it and cutting off the features I don’t need to save weight—the sleeping bag compartment divider—and the second lid will be the first things to go!

    I still Love Osprey packs and think they are the best on the market for women--but they missed the mark on this redesign !
    I would however, recommend this pack to backpackers for weekend-to weeklong trips or if you are carrying 30+ pounds of gear.

    Hey Pippa, valid thoughts here for sure. Sometimes at Osprey, we call that "Feature creep," when features are added, and then sometimes for some userd, like you, it's more that you need. This pack has really developed into a full featured option for the backpacker. However, many through hikers have really loved the Exos pack, which strips features and weight - you would LOVE it.
    NOW, having said that, we are soming out with the women's version of the Exos within the next year to a year and a half... so that will get you and I the XS size we need!
    The long development time is a necessary evil, but keep your eyes out for it in 2017!

    Osprey Rep

    I agree Pippa, I dont need a separate sleeping bag compartment nor a "brain". They are off my pack. I do want to say to Leta the Osprey rep, PLEASE do NOT mess with the Aura AG suspension or the adjustable hip belt! I have to have that adjustable hip belt, it was a god send to make this backpack fit (finally!!) In fact, Leta, please put that adjustable hip belt on that new Woman's Exos pack too! :) Thanks!

    I was trying out backpacks in the store today and these packs are comfortable, way more than competitors. But I couldn't make a decision! I agree with comments here. Comfort / fit is important so I don't begrudge weight spent on hip belt. The AG features and the mesh for airflow are the big draw for me, but I could not make a purchase decision for a) the internal reservoir is a PITA on through hiking trips and b)the 50 doesn't have external sleeping pad straps. But not sure I want extra weight for capacity I won't use. These considerations made me not pull the trigger on a purchase, thinking there might be an alternative. I like the sleeping bag seperator though, as hammock camping doesn't allow for many places to set out your gear ... it stays in the pack. And I like the idea of hiking stick loops as I often don't use the sticks but always want them on the trip.

    I'd definately being interested in this EXO idea, if it has the comfort of the Aura pack.

    Great pack

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    My wife used this pack on a 2 night camping/hiking trip to the summit of Mt. Whitney. It performed admirably. She carried about 25 pounds and was comfortable for the whole trip. The suspension seems to live up to all of the hype.


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

    Used this for my first time backpacking Europe, for 25 days. It was the perfect size and fit everything I wanted to bring! I love the separate top and bottom compartments, and the zippers on the hip strap are great for small items you want to be able to find easily. My bag weighed about 23 lbs with everything in it and it felt great on! The hip strap really helped to take the weight off of my shoulders, as well as the suspension. Overall more than happy with my purchase.

    fantasticalness is right on point

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

    if you've never felt Osprey's AG tech--get to your nearest store to try it on. It's a game changer. The 50 has less bells and whistles than the 65 (no additional side-zip pockets or sleeping pad straps) but that was no love-loss for me. I opted for the 50 so that I would be forced to pack less. Still rebounding from knee surgery I wanted to ensure I could regularly keep my pack about 30lbs and I felt this was the way to do it. This pack still has a ton of features and the ability to pack down and stay secure--at no time have I felt like the space between my back and the pack (caused by the suspension system) alters my center of gravity and makes me less stable. This pack is everything and then some. Well worth the price tag especially with Osprey's lifetime warranty.

    Does the Aura or Ariel allow for a-frame ski carry?

    Is this carry-on size or is it too big?

    Callie, I am so sorry for the delay here. I missed your question. he frame of the Aura 50 is about 25 - 26" tall, which is greater than the 22" max size for carry on. So technically it cannot be carried on. Now.... i have seen way bigger packs carried on without a word from the airlines, but that's a chance you will be taking if you try!

    Hope that helps!


    Osprey Rep

    What are the dimensions when everything is compressed? Especially minimum height? I'm looking to be able to get a bag I can use as a carry-on (airline recommends ~22x16x9 inches), even if it means initially underfilling it on my there, and checking it on the way back home when I am carrying more. Thanks in advance!

    Does this pack INCLUDE a rain cover? Or is it just available for purchase?
