    Great Tech, But Not For Me

      So I got to use this pack on a small backpacking trip the other week. Nothing too crazy, just short 6 mile-er into the Uintas. So, a little about me. I was born tall, and have a history of bad hips. I promise this is relevant, give me a second.

      So, the AG (or Anti-Gravity) system on this pack is a mesh system that is made to take a lot of the weight off your shoulders and put it on your hips. This is generally pretty awesome, as shoulders typically take the brunt of all the weight of the pack. However, because of my bad hips, this was reaaally not comfortable. After a while, my hips actually started hurting, which is not preferred, especially since it was shorter distance. Don't get me wrong, I want to love this pack so much; the quality of the pack is amazing, the pockets are huge and well thought out, and the tech in it is actually really rad. But if you are someone like me who's hips aren't the best, definitely steer clear.

      Durable and Reliable!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought one of these packs for a 3 month backpacking trip through southern Utah. Needless to say this bag has gone through a lot, and has stood the test the time. I am very happy with how the bag has held up, it is super tough and still works like a charm after almost 7 month of having it. I highly recommend!!!!

      Over 1000 miles and still going strong.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Brief: From overnight trips to long distance thru-hiking, this pack brings with it the comfort and versatility that very few packs in this range can offer.

      From tramping through rainforests in New Zealand to the Alpine regions of Colorado, I've had this pack in all types of weather with no problems to speak of. While partners of mine were complaining about sore shoulders/back, I was able to trudge on comfortably without any issues. The pack form fits perfectly to the contours of my back - and at 60L with plenty of pockets and space - it's a great size for anyone from those who want to pack lightly to those who want to run a heavier load for a comfort trip (there's even a front pocket that's perfectly sized for my Frisbee)!

      Of the other packs I've owned (REI flash 62L and a Gregory 50L) this has been my favorite in terms of comfort and durability.

      Love all the updates!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It was easy to choose another Aether after my last one stayed strong for over a decade of multiple, week-long trips every season. It seems like the pocket configuration is more-or-less the same, because why mess with a solid design? The mesh padding on the hips and shoulders certainly feel more breathable and plush, and the wire frame feels sturdier and lighter.

      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!
