Stock has just arrived for the award-winning Osprey Atmos and Aura Anti-Gravity suspension backpacks. There has been quite a bit of interest in these packs and for good reason. They won the coveted Gold Award at the Outdoor Industry Awards in 2014, and more recently received the 2015 Editor's Choice Awards from Backpacker Magazine.
The harness on these packs is like something I've never seen or felt before. As soon as you put one of these backpacks onto your back, you can feel the difference. The suspension system provides great support and comfort for your back and hips. And not only is the suspension comfortable, but it is also ventilated so your back will stay cool when you heat up on the trail. While ventilated systems have been around for some time, Osprey have done a great job on making a comfortable suspension system for your back and your hips while ensuring that the pack load stays close to your back.
The shoulder straps and hipbelt are very comfortable but what feels really great is how the hipbelt 'hugs' your hips. You feel like the backpack is strapping you in, rather than you strapping it on.
The Osprey men's Atmos AG and the women's Aura AG backpacks are available in two sizes, 50 litres and 65 litres. Check them out at the links below.
