Wonderful Osprey Aether 70 Backpack

Wonderful Osprey Aether Ag (Anti-gravity) 70 Backpack - size medium!! Husband, who is 5 ft 9 inch tall & 185 Lbs, got a medium pack for his AT hiking trip. Read how to order size for a good fit. It held everything very nicely, including a bear canister. Very adjustable and supportive in the "Anti-Gravity" design. He carried between 37 - 40 pounds of gear, food, water. The top is a "day-back-pack" in which you can store small easy to reach gear while it is attached to your back-pack, like first aid kit in ziplock, flashlight, etc. The 2 waist zipper pouches on the belt were perfect for lunch and snack food and folding knife, so he did not have to stop and get into bear canister during middle of day. Long zipper on outside of pack allowed to easy entry into pack and extra straps buckling across the outside gave place to hang the Crocs. Also large outer pouch was a great place to store rain jacket and pants. There are 2 outside "1 liter water bottle size " gear pockets too and that he used. Although pack has a great place for a flat hydration bottle on the outside of bag, behind the upper back, he did not use a flat hydration bottle this trip. Inside the bag is a separate flat long compartment along the back if you had flat gear to store in ziplock bags. There is a separate zip sleeping bag / pad compartment at the bottom of the pack. Great backpack.

While the backpack is water resistant, we also purchased the X-Large Osprey waterproof backpack cover because of the possibility of rain. It rained for 3 days of the hiking trip and the X-Large Osprey waterproof backpack cover was critical to all gear staying dry while hiking.

OSPREY AETHER AG 70 BACKPACK

I am a section hiker on the AT and so far have hiked 350+ miles since mid-August with my Aether 70 Pack. I am packing 35-40 lbs of food and gear on my 5 day+ section hikes and the pack distributes the majority of the weight to my hips and has many convenient pockets to store items I need to get to quickly without having to open or take off the pack. It is very durable and great for extended hike and with it's large internal capacity I don't have a lot of stuff dangling from the out side of my pack like hikers with smaller packs.
