One thing I know about ospreys the sea hawks is they are some loudmouthed birds. You think pigeons cooing or crows cawing at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning is a torment to your hangover? Try a pair of nested ospreys squawking like the chef forgot to kill them before serving them for dinner. Other than that they're alright though. At least alright enough for Osprey Packs to have bestowed their name upon the company's ever-growing line of outdoor gear, including this 4th generation release of the Atmos ventilated backpack series.

Osprey invites human mules seeking to lighten their loads without actually removing any of the items making their loads heavy to try out the Atmos AG 65. Its 3D Anti-Gravity Suspension system has been designed to contour the body seamlessly and automatically with a continuous panel of mesh extending from the top of the pack's back panel to its hipbelt. The fit should be flawless, and its effect unrestricted movement with reduced fatigue during use. Wearers can also adjust Atmos torso length at any time using easy release cams behind the harness yoke.

Additional Atmos AG 65 features include:

  • Compression Straps. Provide stabilization. Lower straps also serve as external gear carry straps.
  • Dual Zippered Front Panel Pockets.
  • Fit-on-the-fly Hipbelt. Pads extend 5" to custom fit varying hip sizes.
  • Internal Compression. A single strap to help stabilize the load.
  • Internal Reservoir Sleeve.
  • Removable Floating Top lid.
  • Removable Sleeping Pad Straps.
  • Stow-on-the-go Trekking Pole Attachment.
  • Tool Attachment. Dual ice tool loops and clove hitch style bungee tie-offs.

The Osprey Atmos AG 65 received a 2015 Editors' Choice Award from Backpacker Magazine. Its recommended load range is 40 to 60 pounds. Available sizes and weights: Small, 4lb 4 oz; Medium, 4 lb 6 oz; Large, 4lb 8 oz.
