Uproxx.com – Featuring: Atmos AG 65, Aura AG 65 and Hydraulics™ Reservoir 3 Liter – October 3, 2015

You can’t go backpacking without a backpack. And since it’ll hold every single one of your precious supplies, you’ll want to choose a high quality, comfortable one.

For a top of the line backpack, check out Osprey — a company that does one thing and does it well: making backpacks and rugged travel luggage. For my recent backpacking trip, I used the Osprey Atmos AG 65 (which comes in a 50 liter and 65 liter capacity, as well as a women’s version, the Aura AG). The pack features pockets and compression straps in all the right places, but the real reason to use this pack is its signature Anti-Gravity suspension system which perfectly distributes the pack’s weight and contours to your body. I knew I found the right pack as soon as I put it on, and my choice was confirmed during my trip when I meet a park ranger, a guy who backpacks miles and miles as part of his job, wearing the exact same pack as me.

And don’t forget, you’ll also need to pick up a hydration reservoir (the blue bag seen above), like the Osprey Hydraculis Reservoir 3 Liter.

Adventure.NationalGeographic.com – Featuring Atmos AG and Aura AG Series – May 2015

May 1, 2015

Outdoor gear doesn’t just improve, it keeps getting dramatically better. For our biannual Gear of the Year awards, we celebrate the insights, breakthroughs, and leaps forward in new products that make our time in the outdoors safer, more comfortable, and more fun. Here are our picks for spring/summer 2015.

Osprey’s new pack, the Atmos AG (men’s) and Aura AG (women’s), radically reinvents the backpacking experience. This “antigravity” backpack has one of the most unconventional and comfortable suspensions ever made. Starting at the top near the grab handle, the AG has a perforated mesh panel that runs the length and width of your back, all the way down to your hips and around the front of the waist via the hip belt. This creates smooth, even pressure against your shoulder blades down to the lumbar region—it’s more like a gentle caress than the poking and prodding of a typical pack.

Strolling, striding, scrambling and summiting require different clothing and gear.  Active Junky’s simplified pack buying around three common scenarios: day hiking, overnight packing and distance backpacking. Find yours and zoom in on the pack that’s right for you…

Getting a zero G experience takes connections and cash.  Osprey puts hikers’ all-day comfort expectations into affordable orbit with this duo.  Active Junky first experienced the Anti-Gravity suspension system at an industry event.  Ready to float up to 50lbs via a continuous panel of lightweight mesh, Atmos and Aura look more like avy packs than plodding, high-capacity rucksacks; the word “delight” comes to mind upon first wearing.  As much high performance apparel as game-changing pack, every body-contoured model in the AG series (including 50L variations) is ready for launch…

Backpacker.com – Featuring Atmos AG/Aura AG: Editors’ Choice Award Winner – March 2015

Hauling big loads can be a soul- and spine-crushing experience, but the Atmos’s radical new AG (anti-gravity) suspension system throws conventional pack design out the window with stellar results.

Unlike most big packs, there’s no foam padding or plastic framesheet in the backpanel. Instead, nonstretch mesh (with pencil-eraser-size holes) spans a steel perimeter wire throughout the back and continuously through the lumbar and hipbelt. It’s that lumbar and hipbelt contact that’s key: “It wraps gently but firmly around my hips—like a dance partner’s hands—with no gaps or rubbing,” one tester says. With complete contact throughout the entire back of your body, you get no pressure points, excellent airflow, and superior load transfer. You also get good adjustability: The torso has 4 inches of play and the hipbelt extends up to 6 inches…
