User Review: Osprey Atmos 65
Source: bought it new
A great all-around pack for weekend adventures or longer. Spacious and lightweight, this pack has great stability and balance and is very comfortable even with heavy loads.
- Highly adjustable
- Good ventilation
- Pocket size
This pack has a highly adjustable suspension system that carries large loads with ease. The mesh airspeed back keeps you cool in warm weather, and the shoulder straps and belt fit like a glove. Its high capacity makes it ideal for luxurious 3-5 day trips or spartan longer adventures.
Unlike some packs, this one is not unwieldy. It conforms well to your body, and doesn't shift weight easily, making it ideal for scrambling on rocks.
The only quibble I have are the hipbelt pockets and stretchy side water bottle pockets – if the pack is very full, they're a tight fit for liter-sized bottles or other goodies. I've used the Atmos on short weekend jaunts up to 58 mile solo hikes and haven't been disappointed.
