Intro to the Osprey Atmos AG 65 Backpack
The Osprey Atmos 65 AG is both revolutionary and stalwart. It fits every requirement of an excellent wilderness backpack, like well-designed storage, durable materials, and an array of customization, yet takes the suspension of weight to an entirely new level.
If there were an angel carrying our pack for every long mile, hovering inches above, we would still take the Atmos. Those angels are way too chatty. It’s made for (and excels at) weekend and week-long trips while hauling 30-50 pounds.
The sheer comfort and usability make it our Classic Pick for the Wilderness Backpacker, the standard by which all others are measured.
