Don't shoulder the load alone.
When Osprey designers engineered the multi-day Women's Ariel AG 65 Backpack, they included everything learned from 20 years of building and testing packs specifically geared towards the female anatomy. That, combined with futuristic Anti-Gravity technology, brings you a pack that truly sets the bar for technical backpacking. Anti-Gravity suspension lifts the pack off your back, enhancing airy ventilation and a body-wrapping fit free of pressure points, and is supplemented with padded air mesh straps for a plush load stabilization that won't leave you soaked in perspiration on warmer days. Then, the IsoForm waist-belt can be heat molded for an even greater customized fit.
To improve convenience and efficiency on the trail, Osprey equipped the Ariel with a top-loading design and large J-zip front panel to grant easy access to deeply buried layers while you're on the trail. Then, it added a detachable top lid that doubles as a summit pack when you need something to carry water, lunch, and a camera to the summit. A front panel can be used to bring along a light rain jacket or sleeping pad, while multiple straps along the front of the Ariel secure everything from ice axes to trekking poles.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a comfortable pack with lots of features. I demoed this in a small, for my son, who is just 14 and only 5'5. I think he could have used the XS. But, it still worked for him and he didn't complain about the fit.
The daypack in the lid is really awesome, which we used a lot. He was able to fit all the gear he needed for a 3 night trip, with plenty of room to spare for added things like a speaker or camp lights. The 65 liter is the sweet spot between a big pack and an over night summer backpack.
