Osprey Atmos AG 65
The foundation of the Osprey Atmos AG 65 is Osprey’s Anti-Gravity suspension system that delivers outstanding ventilation and carrying comfort. This award winning pack has earned a solid reputation with savvy thru-hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail. The Anti-Gravity suspension system—a seamless backpanel composed of lightweight mesh extending from the top of the backpanel to the hipbelt that contours to the body to deliver outstanding fit and unrestricted movement. The Fit-on-the-Fly hipbelt and easily adjustable torso length optimizes comfort on the trail. You can access your gear through the top of the pack or via a zippered front panel. The versatile floating top-lid is removable to shave weight but an integrated FlapJacket is always onboard to protect your gear from the elements.
Removable Floating Top Lid
The floating top lid can extend to accept oversized loads or can be removed from the pack body for weight saving lidless use.
Dual Zippered Front Panel Pockets
Dual zippered front panel pockets provide extra storage to items that need to be readily accessible. *Only available on Atmos AG 65 & Aura AG 65.
Side Compression Straps
Dual upper side compression straps stabilize loads while lower, cross functional compression straps also serve as external gear carry straps.
Internal Compression Straps
The internal compression straps help to stabilize the load.
Osprey’s Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment system is designed to quickly attach and carry trekking poles while wearing a pack or making a quick scramble through rough terrain.
The Fit-on-the-Fly hipbelt pads extend 5 inch/15cm to accommodate different hip sizes while providing a custom fit.
The adjustable harness allows the user to easily adjust the torso length of the pack by using the easy release cams behind the harness yoke.
The Atmos/Aura Anti-gravitybackpanel is a continuous panel of lightweight mesh extending from the top of the backpanel to the hipbelt to provide unmatched comfort and ventilation. The seamless structure contours automatically to the body providing outstanding fit and unrestricted movement.
Flaunting the innovative Anti-Gravity Suspension system, the Atmos AG Series delivers supreme comfort and ventilation. This 3D contoured suspension literally allows the wearer to move as if they don't have a pack on - true antii-gravity realized. Combined with custom-fit capability and a full-feature set, the Atmos AG sets a new standard in ventilated backpacking.

The new suspension system is great. It is a giant strong mesh panel that rests on your back. It feels like the bag is just floating on your back. Doing so means it carries weight extremely well. While on the AT I carried roughly 40-45lbs. That proved to be too much for my Gregory pack but the Osprey did and amazing job with it, at times I'm sure I've even gone past 50. You can also adjust the pack to have it lower or higher on your hips.
One of the best features of this pack is the angled water bottle pocket, with my Gregory I had to take the pack off just to drink water. With the Osprey I could easily reach on either side to grab my bottle. It was a game changer and saved a ton of time. More time equals more miles hiked. The mesh pocket will easily fit a 32oz Nalgene bottle.
The hip belt is different from other packs. It feels as if it's trying to hug you, wraps around you very nicely. You have the option of extending the belt if you have a bigger waist but I kept mine all the way inside. I will say the the straps for the hip belt are very long, this pack could seriously fit a sumo wrestler. I had to use duct tape and roll up the extra slack. Another little issue was the hip belt pockets, you can't fit much in there, it would be nice if they gave you more room in there. I was able to stuff four snack bars in one pocket and my camera in the other which was a tight fit.
If you like extra pockets then you'll love this pack. There are two zippered pockets in the brain. The bottom one is pretty big, I could fit a ton of extra gear in there. The top one is smaller but I was still able to jam a good amount of accessories in there. There are also two side zippers on the front, one on the left and one on the right. They go pretty deep so you can again stuff a good amount of gear in each of those. On top of that, the front mesh pocket that Osprey is known for can also fit a ton of stuff. I would keep all my rain gear that I would need quick access to in that pocket. I met other hikers that stuffed so much gear in there that the pack looked like it was pregnant. I don't know what kind of mesh material Osprey uses but it's pretty tough. That being said, I did puncture a small hole in the mesh, don't know how it happened, must have caught it on a branch or something. I threw duct tape over it to fix it. There is also a sleeping bag compartment on the bottom, I never used it though.
The pack is very durable. The material just felt stronger and of better quality than the Gregory I previously used. Up north on the AT I had to deal with an insane amount of tree blow downs and sitting down and sliding down rocks. Many times I swore I tore a hole but when I checked the bag was fine. I did however get my water bottle pouch caught on a sharp branch that tore it. It still worked but there's just a hole there now.
The sternum strap is also a little lower on this pack. I actually liked that because it wont rub your collar bone while you hike. The sternum strap also has a built in whistle like the rest of the Osprey line of packs.
The bottom straps on the pack for a tent or sleeping pad has a lot of slack which is a good thing. You shouldn't have an issue fitting anything on there. I just kept my one man tent down there.
The pack weighs in at 4.5lbs (73.4oz when I weighed it after my hike). This is pretty heavy for a 65L pack. However, this is a 4 season pack (in my opinion) so it's tougher and more durable. More weight will usually accompany that.
Overall, this is an amazing pack. I'll defiantly be a long time Osprey customer now. Any pack that can comfortably last you nearly 2000 miles deserves a 5 star rating in my opinion. I was with another thru hiker who started with the Gregory Baltoro 75L pack and after trying on my pack he got off the trail and got a ride two hours away to an REI and exchanged it for this pack. He ended up loving this pack as well and we both summited Mt Katahdin with it on our backs.

UPDATE: 8 Aug 2015
I contacted Osprey about the two holes I sustained while hiking. I had the pack sent in (had to pay for shipping) and they sent it back stitched up. Not gonna lie, I was hoping they would give me a new pack but that was a long shot for such small damage.
Also, the Atmos AG is the new #1 rated backpacking pack according to OutdoorGearLab. They are my go to website for all things gear related.
First off, this thing fits me like a glove...made for my back. It's basically like the backpack is giving you a great big bear hug, and it really feels like you are carrying less weight than you are. I usually stay around 30 lbs or less, so this is *usually* of no big concern, but you never know what may happen that can cause you to have to load your pack down. Example: During my loop in Idaho my Australian shepherd's pads got badly injured and she couldn't walk any further, so I had to literally put my 46 lb dog in my pack and carry her out. And though it was very heavy (I was probably at ~75 lbs) the backpack kept everything amazingly stable!(Picture is attached)
Secondly, it is one of the best ventilated of a pack this size that I have tried. The mesh suspension system on this pack really makes a difference in terms of keeping you cool/not-so-sweaty during the hotter part of the day. I live in Texas(105+ in summer), and I run hot naturally, so having a pack that stays relatively cool is of great importance, and this thing does it as well as any.
The pack also compresses and packs down very well. All the strapping and buckles are well placed and do a good job of really securing the load. In fact some things just worked out by chance better than I could've imagined:The elastic cords on the shoulder straps (that I believe are for Ice picks /Trekking poles) I ended up using to secure my Olympus outdoor camera, and it worked better than the dang case I bought for it! Kept the camera right in arms reach but very secure the whole trip.
One minor drawback is that the zippered pockets on the front of the hipbelt are so small they are almost entirely pointless. They will not fit a phone, gps, or even a clif bar. The only thing I put in there were some blueberries I picked on a trail, and my compact knife sharpener. However, on the rest of the pack the pockets are conveniently located and hold quite a bit more than they seem they should, so this makes up for it in my opinion.
Another small annoying thing was, for me, when I had the shoulder straps buckled together, the buckle itself sat a little too high up on my chest, and was just slightly annoying after 5+ hours on the trail, to where I ended up unbuckling it for the large majority of both loops.
Overall, though, this pack has just been amazing thus far for me, and I know it won't be for a long while, but my next pack will almost definitely be an Osprey.
