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.

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.
- Great suspension system
- Carries weight well
- Comfortable / Hugs your body
- Many extra pockets
- Lots of extra loose straps

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.
Last year, I hiked a section of the John Muir Trail with an old, cheap pack and I suffered through constant adjustments and painful shoulders due to a very poorly designed hip belt system. That was the last straw, and my research for a higher end pack began. Every review site I came across had the Atmos 65 AG either at the top of the list or within the top 2, so I gave it a close inspection at my local retailer. After loading it up with 30# of weight and getting it adjusted properly (always get fitted the right way!), I slung it onto my back and it just fit like a glove.
The hip belt is very robust but light, hugging my hips and adjusting properly the first time. The zipper pockets on the hip belt aren't very big, and seem even smaller because of the curve of the hip belt. Not a big deal, because they are still big enough to fit my day's snacks and also my smartphone (my GPS), my Carmex, and my keys/wallet. All the space that I needed, really. The adjustment pulls are designed to be pulled in together instead of out and away from center, which is the ideal way to really crank them down snug on your hips. The buckles do not slip whatsoever.
I'm 6'1, 235# with a 36" waist, and the large pack was almost too big. I can crank the hip belt almost completely closed to its stopping point, and I had to really shorten the torso adjustment (I have a longer torso than average, too). I could have bought the medium and it would have been perfect.
The sleeping bag compartment was plenty big for my patrol bag sleeping bag, compressed, and had a little room on each side for some extras like dry socks and a light windbreaker. The top main compartment opens fast with a very clever but simple pull tab that releases the tension cord clamp, and it tightens just as fast with a quick pull on the tension cords. It swallows up enough gear for a long hike and just seems to keep going and going. On the outside front sides of the pack are 2 tall and large zippered shallow compartments for your thinner items. Spare jacket, Tevas, dry socks, etc. fit in there perfect without sacrificing much space from the main compartment.
Lots of attach points on this pack, but not too many that you have extra ounces. The currently attached straps are enough attach points for me, and you get a couple more. Also, the hiking pole holding system is fast to deploy once you practice a couple times for those moments when you just need to hike without poles but need somewhere fast to store/deploy them.
The top of the pack is detachable with 4 release points, but those are also extension points that allow the pack top to extend higher. I store my required bear canister under the top of the pack and it rides very stable. Check out the Bear Vault BV450 for a perfect fit in this spot. I detached the top of the pack to see if I could configure it into a small summit waist pack, but I'll have to get some straps and a buckle to fashion a waist belt for it. It does not come with a waist belt system if you want to use it that way. Or, you can leave it off completely for those shorter trips where that extra space is just dead weight.
To give this pack its first test run, I loaded up for a one night backpack trip through a canyon with lots of rock hopping and essentially no trail. I wanted to see how well-balanced this pack rode, and how comfortable it was on non-traditional trails. I had 26.7 lbs in the pack, minus water weight, and I honestly kept forgetting I even had a pack on my back. I'm a large guy and not in top marathon condition, so this was such a huge relief to not have a pack that weighted me down like the others. I am extremely impressed at its balance, fitment, and loadability.
Overall, this pack really is a champion. If you're a thru-hiker or a weekend overnighter, this pack is versatile enough to fit your needs.

Extremely comfortable, i suffer of backpain and hernia but with this backpack i can load up to 25 kg without no problems!
Pretty comfortable on short or long hike. This bag doing such a good performance.
But i think this not suit well on a snowy day.
不満点は、ヒップベルトにポケットがありますがほとんど何も入りません。ヒップベルトが湾曲しているのでポケットも湾曲していて固くやや厚みのあるものは入れにくいです。コンパクトカメラSONY WX350は無理やり押し込めば入りますがカメラが壊れそうです。Xperia Z3(5.2インチ）はなんとか入りますが折れ曲がりそう。今回は形に柔軟性があるゼリー飲料を押し込んで使いました。あと上蓋を外して使う際に、その下に雨蓋が付いていますがなんか邪魔なんですよね。なお上蓋外すと-175gになります。レインカバーは付いていません。
