User Review: Osprey Atmos 35
Source: bought it new
Outstanding performer especially for those who prefer a breeze across their back. I continue to watch the newer Ospreys, but this Atmos 35 is hard to beat.
- Carries up to 25 lbs VERY well
- No longer sold new
This lightweight pack is no longer sold by Osprey, which is too bad. It is a really great balance of functionality and weight.
I should say that I generally am the guy on the trail prepared for anything, including being stuck out overnight in freezing conditions. Also, a condition for my wife hiking with me is that I carry her water, lunch, and sometimes extra clothing. This means I need a slightly larger pack than most hikers. Also, I prefer using water bottles rather than water bladders.
If I need to live out of my pack for many days (say a multi-week trek in Nepal), I take the Atmos 50. But for long dayhikes, I prefer the lighter, smaller Atmos 35. Both packs have the wonderful, airy mesh against my back. The 50 has more pockets, more space and a wider hip belt. But of course it is heavier.
I've courted the newer Stratos 24 and Stratos 26 packs (bought them, returned them) but I find myself going back to the larger pockets of the Atmos 35 because it can easily carry one-liter bottles whereas the Stratos series can only handle 3/4 liter bottles in the side pockets.
I continue to watch the newer Ospreys, but this Atmos 35 is hard to beat.
