User Review: Osprey Ariel 65
Height of Owner: 5'3"
After lots of research I got this pack last week and took her out on her maiden voyage this past weekend. I had to pack into the site and my pack contained my sleeping bag, clothes (both in compression sacks), sleeping mat as well as a bear keg full with food for 2 people and a dog.
There were some other small items but it held everything well. It has a very wide mouth at the top of the bag as well as an opening on the front to get at things in the middle of the pack which is very handy. Also, the compression straps on the sides go belong the side pockets which is useful.
I hiked about 7km with this on my back and it carried the weight beautifully. Next is a 4-day hike and I'm sure it's fit for the task.
