    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Best pack i've ever had.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I havnt tried it out on longer trips yet. But for a 3 day hiking/camping trip i took to try it out it was amazing. Super durable, extremelu comfortable. I felt like i wasnt carrying barely anything even though i had packed it quite a bit. Amazing back packing bag. If you have back problems or even if you dont this is the pack for you.

    Perfect Pack for Women

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Aura AG 65 pack really has the best fit for women. It sits nicely on your hips with tight, comfortable straps that take the weight off your shoulders. There is plenty of storage space for all the essentials and lots of adjustable pockets to make the pack as big as you need for your longer trips. I love mine!


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've never worn a more comfortable pack. If it doesn't fit on your back quite right, there are straps you can use to adjust the way it sits. The hip straps are a little snug, but better that than too loose. The outer mesh pocket is just the right size to hold all my rain stuff so I can grab it at a moment's notice. Love it!

    Great bag

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this for my wife, and according to her, this pack is one of the more comfortable packs on the market today. She tried on many packs before settling on the Osprey. The design is well thought out which makes for a very efficient 65 liter bag. The bag has also held up awesome, the material seems tough and does not scuff or show wear easily.

    Great pack with 2 considerations...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I used a good-enough-starter-pack for about 6 years backpacking before upgrading to Osprey, and a good pack definitely makes a difference. Whereas my old pack was one size fits all, since I am all legs and short torso, it makes a huge difference being able to choose the size that fit best.
    The hip straps fit nicely around my hips which is great, but also something to consider. It's incredibly tight and definitely leaves them feeling sore after a day of trekking. It's great on my back, not so great on my hips.
    Also, with the model I got, they did away with making it so that you could detach the top pack and use it as a day pack. I think this was a terrible idea - apparently they were hearing that people were cutting the extra straps, so they said hey - we'll just do away with them for you - but now those of us who do want it, can't use them. Luckily I had contacted Osprey and they sent me some pieces so that I could MacGuyver the top into a day pack which was sufficient for my latest trek up Mount Whitney. Unfortunately, my boyfriend got the same pack for men and I've tried contacting Osprey to get more material but nobody has answered me :-(
    Other than that, it really is a great pack. I love the stretchy mesh front pocket, the side pockets, and the separate sleeping bag compartment. I upgraded to the 65L from about a 40L and I no longer need to smush everything in! The straps tighten down nicely to keep everything compact, and the back support really is quite lovely. Highly recommend, as long as you're okay with the tight hip straps, and can MacGuyver something for the day pack!

    Great pack with 2 considerations...

    Rachel, I am so glad you wrote,and I am sorry for my own delay in getting back to you. We have had alot of consideration for the top pack conversion on the Atmos / Aura AG, but here are the real reasons (right from the rep!) why we didnt do it on this pack:

    1)adding this feature would "creep" the feature set closer to the Ariel / Aether.
    2) This would add weight and cost.
    3) we debated this alot! but it's NOT because some people were cutting off straps. This pack never had that feature.

    So, it would have been hard for you to McGuyver it, but I guess you could have fashioned something with webbing and a stitcher... but there would have been no "right" solution from Osprey.

    I know we will consider this feature again when we look to update the pack, so all hope is not lost!

    About Osprey not getting back to you - I am sorry! I can tell you that we have had a skeleton staff in warranty and returns, and they have now beefed that up. Also, I think that the request was a bit outside of what they do (warranty and returns), and perhaps it fell through the cracks. Not sure, but I am sorry.

    Thank you for loving your Osprey and loving this pack. I wish you many journeys with it!!

    Incredible Pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My Aura AG 65L's maiden voyage was a backpacking trip along the Olympic Coast in Washington this summer. If you've ever been on that trail, you know there are a lot of different kinds of terrain (including rock scrambling, steep climbs, rope ladders, mud, water, sand, rainforest trails, etc) and I needed a pack that was going to be safe and stay put. I could not have been more thrilled with the fit/function of this backpack. Never was I uncomfortable, hot, annoyed, or unsteady with all of that weight strapped to my human.

    People mention the placement of the trekking pole loops to be bothersome. I carried trekking poles on that first hike and was thrilled with the placement. I did notice that if I didn't have my poles lashed, however, that the loop would occasionally touch my arm. The next trip I took the pack on and wasn't using poles, I took a little duct tape and fixed the loop to my shoulder strap. Nothing major.

    My favorite features are:

    -Mesh lining on the suspension system (SO COMFORTABLE)

    -Outer mesh pocket (perfect for rain gear, extra layer, etc)

    -Hip belt fit (I definitely have hips and sometimes find gear/clothing for the outdoors difficult. I was SO glad for the comfort/customization of this hip belt. It took the load like a champ and kept my center of gravity steady throughout that first hike and every hike following).

    Incredible Pack

    Loved my pack!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My husband I went backpacking in Glacier. This pack was awesome! It held all my gear and then some. I felt like I was always finding some new compartment or zip pocket. I couldn't imagine not having the anti gravity as that sure does save your back. My husband & I did no training with this pack which resulted us stopping every so couple feet to adjust ourselves as it is definitely a change from carrying your day pack. I wish we would've done some practice trial hikes to get used to the pack but we survived. 6-1/2 hours of hiking, 10.6 miles and up 6,000 vertical feet. Can't wait to use this pack on our next adventure this summer! Highly recommend; especially from Backcountry - they rock!

    Loved my pack!

    Best for your Back!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Osprey is back at it again with another amazing and woman-friendly pack!
    This pack is so lightweight and every feature is has only enhances its' performance.
    Its adjustable spine is perfect if you are in between sizes or if you possibly wanted to loan it to someone who has a bigger/smaller torso than you. I'm 5'1 and I purchased the small because I have a very tine torso. It fits perfectly and the anti-gravity suspension just makes it fit all the more better. I've been using it on multi-day hikes and I haven't once felt any back, chest, or neck pain. As long as you get a pack that fits you right, the construction of this pack helps to place the weight on your hips for easy load carrying.
    Another highlight of this pack is the back ventilation. A classic feature by Osprey that translates extremely well to this backpack. No more sweaty hikes for me!
    One last piece of information on this pack:
    Most packs that claim they are for women never really do much to adhere to our fuller curves or overall shape. The shoulder straps on this pack does just the opposite- they fit comfortably around my chest and they don't squish me or put any kind of pressure on my chest. This itself is amazing if you are particularly big chested.
    Thank you Osprey for such a great pack!


      This pack is AMAZING! A friend of mine has the men’s version of the AG pack so I spoke with him in detail about the fit and feel of the pack before I looked into one for myself and eventually purchased it. The AG technology it uses makes the pack feel like it was molded for your back and helps it sit exactly where it needs to so the weight is distributed evenly. I do not go on extremely long backpacking trips (usually 3-4 days), but this pack is the perfect size for those trips.

      Amazing service and bag!!!

        Not only did this arrive in 2 business days, but shipping was free!! And no tax added to the great deal!! The bag came in no special packaging but overall very pleased!!! And UPS does not ship to PO Boxes as an FYI!!!!! This is an especially large shipping box by to mention also.

        Love this pack!

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        This thing is the coolest backpack I've had. The antigravity technology makes it feel as though it's been molded to my body and is so comfy! The pockets and straps are well thought out and ample! The color of the picture is much lighter than the backpack in person--I was actually pleasantly surprised that it came as a much more dense and interesting color.

        Anti Gravity!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Anti gravity is right! This backpack is so comfortable. I tried out a lot of backpacks and this one suited my particular body well. It is a really comfortable pack!

        Game Changer

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        This was part of a gift for my girlfriend's first backpacking trip last summer. I have the men's AG version, and both of us love this pack. It's not an UL pack, but the way the suspension carries weight - it feels like a lighter pack. With the large sizing, it's tempting to pack too much gear in, but the suspension does a great job of distributing the load. The green color is super nice in person, and I now have about four or five female friends who have purchased and loved this pack based on my recommendation. Can be a little hard to get on with the hip-belts staying closed, but once it is on, it gives the perfect hug around the waist. Overall, a great pack for some one new to the outdoors, or someone who wants to experience how far pack suspensions have come in the past few years.

        Float down the Trail with the Aura

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is the best pack I have ever owned. I have taken for multi-day treks to Zion, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and several long hikes in North Carolina. The anti-gravity system truly makes the load feel much lighter than what it is. Organization is simple and streamlined. My biggest complaint is the placement of the trekking pole loop (which is a feature I use). The plastic rubs against my arm and caused a blister twice. I hate that I have to cut the trekking pole loop off and find another solution to carrying my poles when not in use. Other than that this is a near perfect pack.

        Worked well!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought this pack to use traveling abroad for a month. I was debating whether to use one of the Osprey Travel Series packs, or a traditional backpacking pack, and am glad I chose this one.

        I am 5'2'', with a short torso and got a small. I like that that the waist band adjusts, and has pockets on it for quick access. I packed this with one large packing cube that had all of my clothes in it, and I had lots of smaller organizing bags that I stashed in the outside pockets, and the top pocket. Be aware that on the inside of the bag there are not any pockets.

        Great Pack!

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I gave this as an early wedding gift to my bestfriend. Here's what she had to say!

        I did some research before deciding to purchase this backpack and I have to say, I am very happy with this purchase. I was able to fit all the things I needed for a 3 day hike to half dome. All the pockets were perfect for all the necessities I had brought. It is extremely great quality and comfortable on my back and shoulders. I love the breathable back, as well. The only thing is the cumber bon is a bit small, but I think it's just the size of my hips. The x-small fits well for my torso, but the waist was a bit small. I'm 5'3, so if your shorter than me, I would recommend an xs. It would be nice if they had it in a xs/s. Overall, great backpack. Love the color. Highly recommend this backpack for 2-3 day trips.

        Nice Pack... but hope next gen is better

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Took this pack out on my first trip this past weekend. It did wonderfully. It was really comfortable and had plenty of space.

        Things I liked:
        My spine sticks out pretty far so the AG back helped hug and support my spine without rubbing against it.
        Lots of toggles and straps to help with organization (I love keeping things organized.

        I wish the brain turned into a lumbar day pack or it included attachments for the Daylite pack.
        Hydration pouch is internal. This is something I did know ahead of time and was willing to sacrifice but it is still annoying to have to unpack half your pack to fit your bladder

        Hey Laura - Leta with Osprey. Thank you for taking the time to write. I think your daylite attachment suggestion is a good one. The top pocket waist pack wont happen on this pack, as we are trying to save weight and cost. Internal hydration is such a personal thing! Hard to pleaseeveryone, but I agree with you... :-)
        Thanks for chosing Osprey!

        Best. Pack. Ever.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is the second Osprey pack I've owned, and they make great products! The first was the Viva, and it would have been fantastic, but I have scoliosis, and decided I should spring for the "cadillac" to relieve any unnecessary stress on my crooked back...

        This thing is simply amazing.

        I love love the mesh. It is super soft and durable, and I get away with wearing tank tops with very little rubbing or discomfort. The straps, pockets, loops, etc. are all exactly as you'd want them, and I couldn't be happier. I also agree with Brooke's assessment that it packs up or down well, and is versatile. I love the sleek design Osprey has, with little to snag on branches and whatnot.

        There are two very minor things:
        The hip strap pockets are small. My iPhone 5 can't even fit in there alone all the way. I had it sideways with one end sticking out and just made sure to pay attention that it didn't get tossed. You could probably make use of them with a lip balm and map, but that's about it. My Viva had significantly larger hip pockets, and I could put a whole pack of cigarettes in one if I wanted, or 3 oz hand salve jar, for instance.

        Secondly, I chopped off the trekking pole loop and toggle from the arm strap, and it was the best decision I could make. I do not use trekking poles. I do not like them, and I HATED the loop and toggle position! It was right where my arm swung, and rubbed the inside of my arm raw with no sleeves. It needed to go, and this was also a problem on the Viva. My boyfriend has the Atmos, and it also bothers him.

        So with that all said, I am still impressed and even thrilled with this pack! No rubbing, no pressure points, no sad crooked spine! Absolutely recommend you try one out!

        Side note: I went into REI and had them size me. According to the measuring tool they used, I was a small (which surprised me, because I'm 5'8 and 142 solid pounds, with a long torso) but I tried it on, and was a definite medium. So I also recommend you make sure you know what you need before you spring for a pack that doesn't fit right.

        Hey there - Leta with Osprey here. Thank you so much for the review! And especially your feedback! I will make sure that the feedback gets to the right people at Osprey for sure! The trekking pole loop has been addressed in many of our products moving forward for Spring 2016. A subtle change in position, but it addresses your concern. Thank you again!


        Is this backpack too big to be a carryon?

        Brooke, technically, yes. The fram height is about 25". You cannot compress that down. The max dimension for a carry on is 22". Now, I have seen bigger packs allowed on airlines before (when they shouldnt have been), so you can try, but you do run the risk of a gate check! which, can be free!!!!

        Hope that helps,

        i have osprey aura 65 xs with me.
        its fits me well however i get rashes on my waist eveytine i wear it for more than a day. is there something i can do to help this? i am 5'4" and 50kgs

        Ella, make sure the hipbelt is in the right place. The CENTER of the hipbelt should be on top of the crest of your hipbones. To find these, take your thumbs and put them in your armpits at the side of your body. Running your thumbs down the side of your body, you will feel your ribs, then the soft spot after your ribs end, THEN you will feel the crest of your hipbones. Half of the hipbelt should be above this bone and half should be below. Hope that makes sense.

        It sounds like you may not have it in the right place, so it is moving on you, giving you rashes.

        Thanks for the question,

        I've tried this on in another store and loved the fit, but I'm worried about it durability , specifically with the Anti-Gravity ventilated mesh backing. It looks as though it would rip/tear fairly easily, and wondering if anyone who has tested out this pack on multiple long treks might have some comments/advice on the pack's durability?

        Ellen, We have used this mesh for YEARS on other products with amazing durability. Please don't think twice about this.

        Also, please know that if there is ANYTHING that happens to this pack (your fault, our fault, the bear's fault), Osprey will repair your pack at no charge. If we cannot repair the pack, we will send you a new one. No kidding. It's called the All Mighty Guaranty, and it's real!

        Get this pack - really. I love mine and although I am the rep and have been with them for over 20 years, this is one of the best designs and feature set created in a pack I have ever seen.



        Osprey Rep

        Do not be afraid to buy the pack because of the mesh! The material they use is EXTREMLY durable! It is the same material that is used in a duck decoy bag I use and have had for several years and it is still going strong.

        I plan to backpack for a week. I measure a size small and would like to know if the 62L space is large enough or should I go for a different style Osprey?

        Hey Hope, that completely is dependent on the size of your gear and how much you are taking! For some, it would be able. For me, a little small. Do you have a down bag? Are you splitting out a tent with someone? Do you have to take lots of layers? Happy to help, just let me know.

        Thanks for writing,


        Osprey Rep

        I've been searching for a couple months to find a backpack that feels right. I have scoliosis and its critical to have a pack not freak my back out! I love the overall fit and feel of the Aura AG...but the only thing stopping me from buying it is that the hip belt side pockets seem to have a stiff upper ledge and they stick out so far! When swinging my arms, I hit the side pockets each time, which I know would create all kinds of chaffing problems real fast, and I don't want to have to alter my gait by holding my arms out while walking. I have normal width shoulders..maybe slightly broader than some, so that should be a plus in how my arms hang and swing. I am 5'9 and measured for a small. Any thoughts on this bulging hip belt pocket issue?..I've read some others comment about it in different online forums. Please advise..thanks!

        Hey Calli - really interesting feedback. Have you tried the pack as a demo first and that's how you know? or is it because of the look of it, you think it will happen? Regardless, I will make sure to pass it on to my designer friends at Osprey to see how to address the issue on further designs. I have one and love it, but havent experienced what you are describing.

        Thank you for taking the time to write!

        Best Answer

        Hi Leta,

        Thanks for your prompt response! I have put the pack on a few times and custom adjusted it so it fit as it should...and noticed the hip belt pockets just seemed to extend out further than any other pack I've tried (as I walked around the store for a while). That being said...both my husband and I did end up buying an AG for each of us today. I just couldn't find any other pack that felt this good on my back! Now I just need to figure out the best way to walk with the pockets not rubbing/chafing my forearms...hmmm, think think think?! As a side note, I have slender forearms, so their brushing into the hip pockets isn't from having Popeye arms, hehe ;-)

        One additional suggestion (thought it's too late for us, since we just bought two of these packs)..but it would be great if it had a front opening that allowed you to quickly view and snag out some contents, without having to dump the whole bag out from just the top or bottom. Maybe if that gets incorporated into the next design, we will sell these and switch.

        Also...curious, why does the 50 not come with sleeping pad straps and side pockets? Since it is smaller, these would be so helpful...especially having at least the sleeping pad straps (like the 65) would be helpful. They don't get in the way if not used and don't contribute to weight. I really only wanted a 50, but had to go to the 65 because I like having the option of bottom straps.

        Hi, i am just wondering about the sizing for this pack. I am 5'4 135lbs, what size would you recommend?

        Best Answer

        Hey Brooke, it's Leta with Osprey. Do you know how to find your torso size? The info is on the BC site, but also at your height doesnt matter as much, its more about how long or short your torso is. I am 5'4", and I wear an XS. You may wear a medium though! You never know! I am happy to help you... please reach out again and I can walk you through it!

        Thanks for the question!


        Thanks Leta! Will take that into consideration. Do you have any thoughts on the Ariel vs Aura other than the Aura's excellent suspension? Also, do you find that Aura packs down well if you do not have it filled? I guess I am concerned that 65L may be too much and I don't want a cumbersome pack that won't pack down. Thanks for your help!

        I am same size as you and have the same question. I may use this for short 2 night trips (packing light/hammock camping)

        ... may not always need 65 ltrs ... debating getting the 50 ltr but want the external loops for pad. So question is ... how well does it pack down. Appreciate any feedback, thx.

        I see in the specs that the rain cover is sold separately, but one I saw in a local store had the rain cover that a misprint in the specs??
