1) To know for sure that the frame would fit my small back [17"]. It didn't occur to me how important this was until I tried on a pack in a store and experienced how the right size should feel.
2) To buy from a trusted brand and get a lifetime warranty. I figured it'd be better to invest in a quality pack the first time than to buy a cheap one and make the switch later, after some hardships.
3) To spend less than $150.
The Ariel 65 obviously met the 1st requirement, since it comes in four different sized frames (I went with the XS).
It passed the 2nd with flying colors, since Osprey packs are insured with the 'All Mighty Guarantee'; if your pack is damaged for any reason, they'll repair or replace it for free!
The 3rd was not met, and I even snagged mine at an absolute steal: $165. But it was well worth it because of the warranty. The $165 (or whatever you pay) is an investment that will eventually pay itself off.
As for how it fits...
The hip pads are able to mold to you if they're heated, and they can be cinched down snugly. There isn't a good way to keep the spare straps from flopping around, which is mildly annoying but not a big deal. The mesh back area is extremely breathable and successfully kept me from getting overly sweaty in that area. The top compartment (which has one roomy area, nothing special) can be pulled toward your neck our pushed back with its own set of straps. There should be plenty of room for your sleeping bag in it's compartment, an if not the separating fabric can be removed so that the main compartment is enlarged. You can reach it through the top, which must be cinched down, the front via zipper and the bottom (sleeping bag compartment) via zipper.Read more ›
My daughter loves her Ariel pack. She traveled to the French Alps last summer, and lived out of this pack for seven weeks. The Ariel 65 pack is very spacious, light, breathable . The weight distribution is excellent, the durability is excellent, and the pack so well made! She would recommend this pack to anyone. Osprey guarantees against rips, tears, etc. The price premium is small compared to the high gain in quality and comfort.
Backpack Rain Cover(mine is 60/90 size Millet which can cover the pack with a sleeping mat(Therma rest) attached in your Ariel65) is optional(a must item that will save your Trekking adventure and life.Mountain weather is unpredictable.When your pack gets wet, you`re in for Trouble ).
Ariel has loop holes for Trekking poles (convenient),has Drink holder on both sides and detachable Lumbar pack that can make your Trekking life enjoyable by detaching it for using like ascending to the Summit while all your heavy gears are all left in your camping site!
Ariel is my Trekking buddy ;). Really Great !

This backpack is great, except for one thing. I really wished the front open zipper was a full half circle instead of just a quarter circle. Read morePublished on January 25, 2014 by Sharon B
