    I love this backpack!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First of all, Osprey has always made quality packs. I took this backpack with me to Glacier National Park in Montana, it distributes the weight so well. It has a few different compartments which is important for me, I have to organize everything. This backpack has perfectly sized pockets and I can fit everything I need in it. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something that wont drag you down.

    Best pack there is

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

    I purchased this pack after much research and debate for my first overnight backpacking trick. This pack surpassed all my expectations. Osprey really is the expert when it comes to backpacking. The specialized women's fit does make a difference. I am 5'2" with a short torso, and I ended up going with the size small. I maybe could have gone with an x-small though because it sat pretty high above my head.

    The technology in this bag is unreal. The anti-gravity system takes the weight off your back and onto your hips, making it stable and comfortable. I had zero back pain the whole weekend. The compartments are simple, but organized. There is also a built in H2O component which I will definitely be utilizing in the future.

    The description says the top lid is removable, but I couldn't figure out how to do this. I wish it had buckles of some sort for easy on and off. Other than that, I find no flaws in this pack.

    It's worth it to get the right gear in these situations. It can make or break an experience and this pack definitely helped make my first backpacking trip comfortable, enjoyable, safe, and memorable.

    Wow, Brandi, this is such a great review! Thank you so much! The top lid is removeable, but does not turn into a waist pack. I bet you are likely an XS, but glad the small fit as well.

    Many thanks!

    Love it... But its squeaks

      I have had this pack for about 3 years now. It is absolutely perfect in every way- but it is so squeaky. What I believe to be the frame of the pack squeaks with every step I take. At first I assumed I needed to break it in and after that it would stop, but after 3 summers worth of backcountry adventures, the squeak persists. I have made lots of adjustments and reconfigured the way I load my gear, nothing helps. I am not sure if my pack is defective or if the squeak is characteristic of the pack. Has anyone else had this problem?

      Love this pack!

        This pack is perfect for going backpacking for a few nights. It fits snug and doesn't wobble around. Lots of pockets for easy and convenient storage. I'm 5' tall with my hips being bigger than my upper body and this pack fit great.

        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!!

        Aura AG Features!

        Hey folks, this is a great video from Osprey that walks you through all of the cool things to look forward to on your new Aura. If you haven't decided to go with the Aura, after watching this, you just might!

        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.

            Unanswered Question

            Does the bag come with lifetime warranty? I know osprey suppose to.
            If it does how can I replace it if something go wrong?

            Unanswered Question

            What size would you recommend for 2 to maybe up to 4 or 5 day backpacking trip? 50 or 65L?

            Unanswered Question

            Does this model have a detachable daypack? The tech specs say it does, but one of the reviews said that this feature had been eliminated.

            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,


            Osprey Rep

            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 Ospreypacks.com. 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.
