User Review: Osprey Aura 50
Price Paid: $246.39 CAD
My best experience with this pack was -- having an extremely experienced salesperson fit the pack on me.
My worst experience -- having to pay $250 for a poor quality pack and a company that doesn't stand by their product.
I purchased an Osprey, Aura 50L women's hiking pack at a local outfitter store in Victoria, BC, and used it for two weeks while I travelled in Peru (no hiking only travel). When I returned home, I noticed the material covering the frame was worn and beginning to fray. I returned the pack to the store of purchase and they sent it back to the manufacturer.
After 6 six weeks, I contacted the store of purchase and they informed me that Osprey wanted to wait until the frame poked trough the material before a replacement was made. Lucky me... Needless to say, I strongly suggest that if you want to avoid irritation, aggrevation and the feeling of being ripped off DO NOT purchase an Osprey Aura 50L. Life is way tooooooo short.
