Jillian U.wrote a review of Osprey Packs Aura AG 65L Backpack - Women's on May 26, 2015
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.
