This season, Osprey has put the bar out of reach by combining Anti-Gravity technology with customizable fit and innovative features to create a more capable and comfortable pack for long-haul load carrying on any multi-day excursion. The women's specific, custom fit Ariel AG 65 is great for a week on the trail or a gear-intensive weekend where extra volume makes the difference. CUSTOM FIT The IsoForm harness and CM hipbelt provide outstanding fit and comfort for especially heavy loads and long miles. Both components are interchangeable to provide a truly custom fit.

When Osprey designers engineered the multi-day Women's Ariel AG 65 Backpack, they included everything learned from 20 years of building and testing packs specifically geared towards the female anatomy. That, combined with futuristic Anti-Gravity technology, brings you a pack that truly sets the bar for technical backpacking. Anti-Gravity suspension lifts the pack off your back, enhancing airy ventilation and a body-wrapping fit free of pressure points, and is supplemented with padded air mesh straps for a plush load stabilization that won't leave you soaked in perspiration on warmer days. Then, the IsoForm waist-belt can be heat molded for an even greater customized fit. To improve convenience and efficiency on the trail, Osprey equipped the Ariel with a top-loading design and large J-zip front panel to grant easy access to deeply buried layers while you're on the trail. Then, it added a detachable top lid that doubles as a summit pack when you need something to carry water, lunch, and a camera to the summit. A front panel can be used to bring along a light rain jacket or sleeping pad, while multiple straps along the front of the Ariel secure everything from ice axes to trekking poles.
