The women's Osprey Viva 65 pack provides essential features for backcountry travel and offers an incredibly versatile fit-all in a complete value package.


The Osprey Women's Viva 65 Backpack isn't going to carry all your glamping gear--that solar-powered margarita mixer, inflatable couch/bed, and mini TV your Nanna gave you for Christmas will have to stay home--but it will carry everything you actually need for a few days in the wilderness. Better still, it won't leave your back yearning for that battery-powered massager you got for your birthday last year.Osprey equipped the Viva with everything you need to rough it comfortably in the wild, like a efficient and comfortable LiveWire peripheral frame that supports loads between 30 and 50 pounds. It also attached a breathable Airscape backpanel to help keep you cool and comfortable, even when you're hiking up a steep, sunny, and dusty trail with forty pounds strapped to your back. The bottom of the bag is fitted with a sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider, and the cavernous main compartment can be packed to the brim via the reliable top-loading design. You can cinch down the floating lid to save on space when you're packing light, or extend it when you do decide to bring along that margarita mixer. Small items like headlamps, maps, snacks, and rain jackets can be stashed in any of the top, front, side, or hip pockets. When the end goal does require more specialized equipment, the Viva will smoothly carry extra gear via the dual front daisy chains, ice axe loops, and trekking pole carriers.

The Osprey Women's Viva 65 Pack is a spacious pack for three to seven days on the dusty trail. Load your sleeping bag into the zippered compartment down at the bottom, strap your sleeping pad to the exterior straps, and everything else goes in from the top. Don't forget your camp stove or your tent, food and maybe a fresh pair of undies and you'll be primed and ready for a week or so in the backcountry. Okay, you'll probably want to add a few more things but this 65 liter can handle the load. Adjustable torso and hipbelt keeps you comfortable from trailhead to trailend, and the Stow-on-the-Go keeps trekking poles at the ready when not in use. All these Features, and your grandma won't panic when she sees how much it costs. Or your own bank account, whomever is chipping in for this beaut.
