User Review: Osprey Aether 70
Max. Load Carried: 40
Height of Owner: 5'8"
Price Paid: $209.99
This pack is awesome. I took the recommendation of Backpacker magazine's gear guide and researched this pack and ultimately found it on sale at a great price. The pack is very comfortable and spacious.
The only potential gripes I could make are a)the shoulder straps are a little uncushioned (at least more than my last pack) and b)the outer pocket is difficult to get into because of the straps. But, once you get everything else cinched into place most of the weight is not on your shoulders anyway...and I haven't really needed to put much of anything into the outer pocket yet due to the spacious interior.
Overall, I would seriously suggest anyone looking for a new pack to check this one out. And then find it on sale!
