User Review: Osprey Atmos 35
Max. Load Carried: 35 pounds
Height of Owner: 6 feet
I have come to really loathe this pack. It's fine and airy for light loads, but as soon as you put something substantial in there, the packs bounces around on the trampoline suspension, reeking havoc on your spine and sanity.
In their defense, Osprey explicitly designed the pack to move around during active pursuits, but I think the whole approach is wrong-headed. To me, it feels much better to be climbing / skiing, etc with a pack that's secured more firmly to your hips (like a Gregory of the same size).
To add insult to (literal low back) injury, the design of the pack doesn't allow for easy access to the side pockets, or to the main compartment, without undoing a few, annoying straps. Osprey's travel bags are great--I'm starting to suspect their packs are more focused on gimickry and aesthetics.
