Product Description

A favorite of weekend warriors to elite mountaineers for over eight years these packs enter their third generation. Great carry, and astounding range of fit and practial, clean features make these backpacks the obvious choice in lightweight, gender specific custom fit. Features hipbelt convertible top pocket/lumbar pack, LightWire alloy peripheral frame, red internal load compression strap, Stow on the Go trekking pole attachment, three horizontal compression straps, J-zipper panel access, stretch woven dual access side pockets, stretch woven front pocket with welded vent, cord loop Add-Ones attachment slots, StraightJacket compression, side gear loops and straps, wide mouth sleeping bag access with divider, two ice axe loops and removable sleeping pad straps.


A favorite of everyone from weekend warriors to elite mountaineers, the third-generation Osprey Aether 70-liter backpack has been turning heads for more than eight years. The 2010 Aether is equipped with Osprey's LightWire alloy peripheral-frame suspension system, which combines an Airscape ribbed foam back panel with a recycled HDPE framesheet with weight-reducing cutouts. The LightWire system distributes the weight evenly across your body, so you'll feel as nimble on mile five as you did your first few steps. The pack also includes a gender-specific IsoForm CM hip belt and harness. Made of heat-moldable foam in Osprey's CM in-store hip-belt ovens, the hip belt and its ErgoPull closure close comfortably around your mid-section while adding support. The harness, meanwhile, includes 4 inches of fine torso adjustment, with hook-and-loop adjustable yokes. And with four hip belt sizes, four harness sizes, and three torso sizes, the Aether boasts an unparalleled fit range for both men and women.

Comfort will only get you so far, of course, which is why the Aether 70 also offers a ton of storage options. The large main compartment holds most of your clothes and gear, while the adjustable stretch-woven front pocket and dual-access side pockets fit smaller items and accessories. You can carry even more stuff via the loops and attachment points, which include Add-Ons attachment loops for a smaller daypack, a Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment, and dual ice axe loops with bungee tool tie-offs. Finally, the pack includes a top pocket that converts into a lumbar pack, making it easy to go on short day hikes.

Other features include a hydration sleeve that holds 3-liter and smaller hydration reservoirs, three horizontal StraightJacket compression straps, a red internal compression strap, wide-mouth sleeping bag access with a removable divider, removable sleeping bag straps, and J-zipper front panel access. The Aether 70 is available in dusk, tundra, and magna colors in small, medium, and large sizes.

The pack includes Add-Ons loops for attaching a smaller daypack.

Headquartered in Cortez, Colorado, in the southwest part of the state, the company is nestled at the corner of the rugged San Juan Mountains and on the edge of vast sandstone canyon country. This landscape provides the Osprey staff with constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for the company's packs. The remainder of the company--including Osprey founder and head designer Mike Pfotenhauer--resides in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In HCM City, surrounded by heat, endless bustle, and vibrant energy, Osprey designs and builds its packs to exacting standards. Living in HCM City provides many benefits, including the ability to create face-to-face relationships with the factories that build its packs, ensure fair labor standards, and soak up the design inspiration of a cosmopolitan city.
