User Review: Osprey Atmos 50
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: list price—I don't remember
This is the favorite of my ~12 backpacks. This is the pack I use for ultralight overnights or for cold-weather day hikes when I must carry water for my wife, the snow shovel and a heavy camera.
- Excellent load-carrying for the weight of the pack
- I love the mesh back and pockets
In addition to cold-weather dayhikes, I use my Atmos 50 for ultralight backpacking—multi-day for just me or overnight for myself and spouse. I also use this pack for international trekking trips where I need to carry as much on the plane as I can squeeze into 22".
The best thing about this pack is how comfortably it can carry up to 35 lbs. Above that, I'd rather have my Osprey Aether 65.
