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 Anti-Gravity™ suspension system—a seamless backpanel composed of lightweight mesh extending from the top of the backpanel to the hipbelt that contours to the body to deliver outstanding fit and unrestricted movement. 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.

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.

I just bought this pack.

I tried on a lot of packs and decided to get this one. It is a great pack. fits all my gear. It is light weight.

There is only 1 problem with it. It squeaks. And it is at the right side hip. The left side doesn't squeak. it squeaks when I don't have anything in it and it squeaks when I have all my gear (35lbs or 16kg) in it.

I looked online and only found 1 reviewer stating the there was a squeaking noise, so I thought I was just the unlucky one that got a squeaking one. I went back to the store where I purchased it to see if it was just my bag. It was not, the other bag squeaked on the right side, but the left side didn't as well. The salesperson stated that they will contact Osprey to see about this, but I just wanted to get others experiences on this.

Is this just part of the new suspension system because the fabric is too taut and is rubbing up against each other and the fact that most of it is hollow amplifies the sound? Does this sound go away eventually?

I really like this bag, but I think I have to return it because the sound would bother me on a multiday hike.

    Comments about Osprey ATMOS AG™ 65:

    This is the best pack I have ever used! 5 weeks of wilderness in northern Mongolia and selecting a pack is something unneeded to get right!
    This pack is comfort beyond comfort. When correctly adjusted to you this pack doesn't move around at all, the AG system allows for all day comfort with out any hotspots, and it fits to the body like no other I have had. A tardis for 65lts with so much room inside! Easy packing, excellent gear storage, rugged material. Love the feature of being able to access the side pocket for your water bottle without taking the pack off, this was the envy of my expedition partner. It took me weeks and weeks of research to decide on buying a new pack and this one really is the very top of the tree. Thank you Osprey!

    This was my first real purpose built backpacking pack and I absolutely love it. Provided me with comfort during my entire 3 day Trans Catalina Trail backpacking trip. Provided more space than I needed for 3 days out in the wild.

        Comments about Osprey ATMOS AG™ 65:

        Let me start off by saying that I Love Osprey packs. When I started reading reviews about the atmos with the ag suspension system I was so excited to try this pack. I actually bought the 50 and the 65. Within a few days I received the pack from a reputable company. On time and in perfect condition.
        I loaded the 65 with moderate weight and volume to try out the feel.
        It immediately felt uncomfortable. The pack felt like it was too far off my back. I couldn't get it to settle onto my hips right. It also put my back in a weird position and caused a slight pain in my back.
        I thought maybe I was over reacting and I'm doing something wrong. So for a few days I would try to adjust the pack and try it out again. With no resolution to my issues I ended up sending back both packs. I then got the Aether 60 with no ag suspension. Love my new choice. Pack feels perfect and I'm happy with the Aether. I hope this review helps osprey and its customers. Fantastic company and packs. I am just not a fan of this particular pack.

          I have this as well as the AURA for my wife as packed "go bags" in our car/truck. I am very happy we upgraded from the military style I/we were use to.

          The tool attachment holds our tomahawks and rifles and or tactical shotguns perfectly. The side pouches are perfect for 30 round AR magazine storage as well as sidearm use.

          The only down side is I had to dye the rain covers to be flat black.

          It's a good pack that fits me well. My only gripe would be the less than secure pockets on the sides and back. While wearing it, I haven't had a problem with anything falling out, but before putting it on, I always have to do a double check around the area to make sure nothing has fallen out. It doesn't happen often, but enough to be a reoccurring issue. The zipper pockets on the waist belt can be a bit tricky to open and close one handed while worn.

                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.

                  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.

                  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.
