GoGumption.com – Featuring Atmos AG and Aura AG Series – September 29, 2015

September 29, 2015

Twenty years ago my first “technical backpack” was a beast. A massive, lunky external frame pack, it swaggered and swayed like a ship at sea, constantly striving to move opposite my every direction. Thankfully, times have changed. The new Anti-Gravity suspension system from Osprey makes antiquated backpacking experiences a definitive thing of the past. From this point forward the Atmos AG and Aura AG ensure that you’ll be crushing the miles in serious comfort.

On Performance and Design…
We took the Atmos AG deep into the heart of California’s Desolation Wilderness and knocked out countless backcountry miles. Then we headed out to the Eastern Sierra and did it all over again. While we aren’t quite sure exactly when it happened – perhaps somewhere near mile 5, or maybe halfway through the first set of switchbacks – it was out there in the wild where we fell in love with this pack.

GoGumption.com – Featuring Atmos AG and Aura AG – August 14, 2014

August 14, 2014

At every Outdoor Retailer, the question is always the same, “Have you seen any game changers?” In an industry often overrun with hype and hyperbole, the new Osprey Atmos AG (AntiGravity) represents a paradigm shift in the way people will think about suspension systems. The fourth generation of the brand’s ventilated pack features a unique “AntiGravity” back system along with the world’s first fully ventilated hip belt. The entire back panel of Osprey Atmos AG is a single piece of suspending webbing that floats away from the pack itself distributing weight evenly over every contour of your body. The result? More cushion, greater breathability, and a pack that works with the body through dynamic movements.

Available as the Atmos AG (for men) and the Aura AG (for women)  the packs will come in 50 and 60-liter versions..
