    Osprey Packs Aether AG 60L Backpack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my go to pack! For real this thing is legit. I've been on several backpacking trips with it. 60L forces you to pack smart but I've had the thing maxed out for every trip but Osprey's Anti Gravity suspension system distributes the weight so efficiently, It honestly feels like a day pack, so you'll stay light on your feet. I could go on forever about this pack. Extremely comfortable, customizable, and there's tons of handy features. The top lid converts to a day pack, which is super useful once you've reached your base camp. Any questions feel free to reach out!

    Best friend on your back

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This backpack has been my travel buddy all over the world. Across the Nepali Himalayas, all through Patagonia, the jungles of Thailand and countless backpacking adventures state side. It is as comfortable walking around cities as it is in the woods.
    The 60L keeps you honest about your packing, just enough for a 4-5 day backpacking trip or a few months traveling. This keeps you from overloading your pack, be deliberate about gear and it should all fit.
    I am 5'8" and the medium fits well. The shoulder straps are vertically adjustable so you are able to customize the fit. The hip belts also molded well and stay in place while walking around all day.
    Over the years I acquired a few holes and broken buckles, as expected for hard use. I sent it back to Osprey and they patched everything up like new.

    Backcountry Comfort

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this pack. The Anti Gravity suspension system has to be the most comfortable I've used. I sweat a lot and with this system, the pack is lifted off my back to allow air to flow through and help regulate temperature where the pack would otherwise rest and heat further. I've used this pack for numerous activities, including backpacking, ski touring and some mountaineering objectives. The top lid unclips and turns into a great summit pack that is hydration compatible and even has an ice axe loop too. This pack is not the lightest, but I would argue it is the most comfortable, so if that is what you're looking for, then I would strongly recommend this pack.

    Feel free to reach out to me with any sizing questions, or any questions about this pack or anything else.

    Top lid as a daypack is amazing!

    The top lid detaches as a daypack/summit pack and is an invaluable feature of the Aether. The Ariel is the womens version of this bag.

    Top lid as a daypack is amazing!

    Under tech specs, you list this as a top load only pack, but Osprey claims "side panel zip access to main compartment." Can someone clarify?

    Thanks for the question, Tyler! Osprey is correct, and this Aether 60 also has a side zip access, as Michale refers to below. I will make make sure to help Backcountry get the specs updated. Thank you for the question!
