Description

The foundation of the Osprey Atmos AG™ 65 is Osprey’s Anti-Gravity™ suspension system that delivers outstanding ventilation and carrying comfort. This award winning pack has earned a solid reputation with savvy thru-hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail.

The Fit-on-the-Fly™ hipbelt and easily adjustable torso length optimizes comfort on the trail.

You can access your gear through the top of the pack or via a zippered front panel. The versatile floating top-lid is removable to shave weight but an integrated FlapJacket™ is always onboard to protect your gear from the elements. There are also two front panel pockets to keep essentials from going astray.

Final touches on this state-of-the-art pack include the Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachment system, and ice axe loops for winter ascents.

Just got done with 30mi, 4/3 Day/nights on AT, snow, rain, sunshine, all of it. Yes it took about a day to really dial in the shoulder & hip belt with this crazy spiderweb AG design, but all packs take that, no worries.

Once i got it situated it handled everything great. B/c of variable weather I was in & out of the pack all day, shedding layers, putting cover on/off, getting bladder in/out, etc: it was convenient & accessible. B/c of the way the booger hangs on ya like a monkey it's slightly difficult to get wrapped on ya when first shouldering it, like trying to crawl into a space suit, but really not a big deal - this is me knit-picking trying to be objective & give y'all a con here.
Had it fully loaded for winter packing, prob ~ 40-45lbs first day, & it handled it great. If you're looking for a pack to regularly handle more than this then maybe she's not the girl for you, but my knees have sure appreciated me dropping from an 80L pack, so this is my "do-it-all" pack now. Once I ate some of my grub & didn't have my H2O bladder full it was about 35lbs & I felt like I could run like a dang cheetah.

Biggest gig is the ventilation- even with layers & shell on it breathed better than I could have hoped. When my buddies dropped their traditionally built packs their backs were soaked, but I was drier than I've been with any other pack. & I usually sweat like a fat biker doing windsprints on the sun.

Because of Osprey's overlapping sizes I'm on the cusp of M/L; I like this about Osprey, because people aren't cookie-cutters & their packs adapt to that. My point in saying this is although I'm an experienced hiker I appreciate throwing myself on the mercy of the gear shop and checking my pride at the door; by letting "Thad" or "Hunter" help me properly fit the pack to ME I gain the advantage of new gear designs that have evolved & I would otherwise be ignorant to. So if you have the option, try em on at the shop.

I drank the Kool-aid, & it's sweet.

I carried 10 Kg at minimum, and 20 Kg at maximum.
The first impression for me is the backsystem web, if a link is broken I think it will lead to broke another links next to it and another links next to another links, just like chain reaction, until the whole 'Anti-Gravity' thing gone, and you have to buy a new one because its backsystem failing. Don't want that to happen, maybe Osprey can made the backsystem from a stronger fabric, for example: Dyneema.

The zipper at the hipbelt pockets does snags, sometimes. The hipbelt pockets are too small, I believe Osprey can make it bigger just like with Xenith does. I don't mind extra few hundred grams for Atmos AG improvement, since it's not an ultralight carrier for thru-hikers. It is a backpacker/trekker carrier extended trips.
This is my 5th carrier, after Eiger 35, Deuter Futura 55, Deuter AirContact 65 and the last previous one was Osprey Xenith 75.

Cause it's virtually impossible for me to bear more than 22 Kg loads in more than 7 days. So I replace my Xenith with this one.

And there's no separated partition for hydration just like Xenith does. It is important. Imagine if our hydration bladder incidentally broke/leak and its water flood inside, and make everything wet? Especially clothes and sleeping bag... Duh... High possibility it will be anyone's nightmare while camping.

I believe Osprey will soon release the improvement version of Atmos AG, I hope that we can exchange our Atmos AG with the next-to-release-one.

      Comments about Osprey ATMOS AG™ 65:

      I purchased the Atmos 65 last year and used it on several mulit-day hikes during the winter months. At the time my pack load was around 45lbs but since I've reduced that weight significantly to 25lbs. This is an extremely comfortable pack even loaded heavy while traversing steep rocky terrain. The adjustability is incredible and if you select the right frame size I think you will be able to find the "sweet spot" with the shoulder straps and waist belt after the first few miles. There's enough room in the 65L for average hiking gear. It's not an ultra-light pack and isn't advertised as such. My scale has the pack weighing in at 4.6 lbs and with the removable "brain" you can save an additional 6.2 oz. The pocket separation is nice for organizing and the outer mesh pocket is great for rain gear. The water bladder pocket is inside the pack and I like the strap that holds your bladder in place at the top. The trekking pole loop and securing strap are handy and can be operated on the move. The waist belt zipper pockets can be slightly difficult to zip closed with one hand but not really that bad. Overall I can't imagine a much better pack unless you're trying to go ultra-light and want a pack that weighs a pound or so. I highly recommend it to the typical hiker who is looking for comfort on multi-day, long mileage hikes and wants plenty of room to pack average size gear.

        Comments about Osprey ATMOS AG™ 65:

        I've had a few different packs over the years and the Atmos AG 65 is unquestionably the best. First of all, it is extremely comfortable. I could find fault with one thing or another about all of my previous packs regarding comfort...waist belt didn't conform/wrap well, shoulder straps were stiff and/or not ergonomically suited to my frame, etc. The Atmos AG 65 has a super cushy waist belt that perfectly conforms to my hips. In addition, the shoulder straps are soft yet very comfortable under heavy load. I've had from 27 to 47 pounds in this pack on multi-day trips and it is comfortable in all situations and loads. My biggest rave about this pack, however, is the mesh back panel. I hike in the southeastern US and it is hot and humid much of the year. With all of my previous packs, my back would be drenched in sweat all day...not any more. I can literally feel the breeze blow across my back now. It is a phenomenal pack and a testament to Osprey's design team. The only attribute that could use a slight tweak is the hip belt pockets are tough to zip closed with one hand. Other than that, this is the perfect pack.

        Comments about Osprey ATMOS AG™ 65:

        Bought this pack to use while Osprey is replacing my Aether 70. Very comfortable. Carried 40 lbs on 3 day cross country trip in Yosemite. No shoulder pain or lower back pain as with the Aether, but that pack was 6 years old. I hope the Atmos 65 AG is the one Osprey will replace my old pack with. Only problem is the belt pockets are tight and the zipper is impossible to pull closed with one hand while the pack is on. The material bunches up and doesn't allow the zipper to close. Had to have a companion hold the fabric while I pulled the zipper closed.
        Great design Osprey. The pack is as close to anti gravity as you can get outside of science fiction.

          It's my third pack and certainly beat the late two of my packs. The AG back system is worked for me. I use this pack to go on hiking, 2-3 days. No more shoulder ache after I use this pack, the weight distribution is just perfect, lots of pocket, and fancy looking too. Most important of all is the price, really, the cheapest pack availabe in my country.
          Really miss the rain cover though.
          But it's really worth every penny you spend.
          Thanks Osprey

            This pack, an Atmos 65 Large, weighs 4 pounds, 14 ounces on very accurate scales--not the 4 pounds, 8 ounces advertised. Other Osprey packs have been much closer to advertised.
            The Slate Gray color has a lot of green in it. I was expecting a gray closer to the Xeos and Stratos Grays, both of which I have and like the color better than the greenish hue of the Atmos.

            Ok, Anti-Gravity may be a bit of a stretch, but this really is a great pack. The suspension system is revolutionary and does the job of transferring weight to your hips. It also has excellent ventilation. My only problem is the hip belt pockets. They're too tight to fit much more than a stick of lip balm.

            Comments about Osprey ATMOS AG™ 65:

            I recently purchased this pack for a short backpacking trip in Canyonlands National Park. In selecting a pack, my top priority was that it not compress the lateral cutaneous thigh nerve which passes near the upper front hip bone. On a previous extended trip with my older pack, compression of this nerve by the hipbelt caused a condition in my left thigh called meralgia paraesthetica, in which the skin becomes extremely numb and tingly. Apparently this is not uncommon among backpackers. Since permanent damage can result, I was afraid that my backpacking days might be over.

            However, with a load of about 35 lbs, the Atmos 65 gave me no problems in Canyonlands. The hipbelt distributed the load evenly around my hips and back without creating any uncomfortable pressure points. The pack had also been properly sized and adjusted by an Osprey representative, so that the hipbelt rested slightly higher than the point where the nerve passes. After a few decades of backpacking behind me, I feel like can now count on more years ahead.

            The only con about the pack is that the hipbelt pockets developed small holes from abrasion. When the pack is fully loaded and resting on the ground, the curvature of the belt causes these pockets to face downwards and rub against rocks, etc.

            This is definitely the most comfortable backpack I've ever used - very happy with it!
