User Review: Osprey Aether 70
Height of Owner: 6 feet
Price Paid: $200
This pack is awesome. I'm a rather hefty 6'0" and this pack feels like it just another part of my body when properly cinched in and adjusted. I have an Osprey daypack and based on the quality of that pack, I had no qualms about purchasing this as my main pack. I look forward to many years of use with it.
Just a note on one of the other reviews (written in 2007). The reviewer had two nitpicks about the pack:
"the back pocket is impossible to get into when securely cinched down as 2 of the straps are over the top of the pocket.
to use the lid as a daypack you must remove the hipbelt from the pack, a feature I never use but some may."
Both of these issues have been fixed with the 2010 model. The straps can now be re-routed to avoid blocking the pocket. Also, the daypack now has its own hipbelt so you don't have to remove the main belt.
