Why We Like The Ariel Plus 85L Backpack

When we need a little extra room and carrying strength, we load up Osprey's Ariel Plus 85 Backpack for our expedition into the backcountry. The extra beefy frame handles our heavier load with ease, allowing us to focus on the muddled path ahead. When we're blue blazing, we transition the top lid into a daypack to leave the weight behind for a few hours off the main trail.


  • Rugged women-specific backpacking pack for long, gear-heavy missions
  • Plenty of room for week-long treks or weekend alpine objectives
  • Strong wire frame transfers load to hipbelt for a better carry
  • Close-fit back panel with airflow channels for stability and comfort
  • Adjustable harness, shoulder straps, and hipbelt for customization
  • Water-resistant fabric and rain cover keeps gear dry on rainy days
  • Streamlined lashing points and pockets for no-muss organization
  • Osprey's award-winning, innovative designs provide top performance
  • Item #OSPZ19P

Great potential marred by design flaws

I've used it several times

This pack has a lot of good things going for it, but there are some significant design flaws that outweigh the good for me. This pack broke before I even got to use it. The buckle attachments that secure the brain/top lid both broke due to poor design and had to be secured with a knot. The first one broke at orientation for a Rainier climb, the second side broke during the climb. Additionally, when you use the top lid as a daypack, the attachment for the straps makes absolutely no sense and is poorly designed. Also had to secure these with a knot.
