Sam Dickersonwrote a review of Osprey Packs Aether 60 Backpack - 3478-3844cu in on January 4, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used this pack for about 2 and a half years now, and I'm pretty happy with it. Sure, it's heavier then other packs, but with the extra weight you get a ton of features, most of them useful. It has lasted through 2 week long trips in Colorado, trips in Utah and Wyoming, as well as a ten day trip in New Mexico, and during all of them it was bush-whacked with, fallen on and scraped up, and constantly abused, and the material has totally held up. the lid/fanny pack serves its purpose. The suspension is pretty good, and it's nice that you can swith the shoulder and hip pads out for better sizes, but I stongly prefer the comfort of the suspension on my brother's Atmos (which is lighter). All in all, great pack, and has interchangable suspension, but is a little heavy for 60L. Worth my money.
