The Aether 60 provides full customization and light weight in a moderate volume, top loading, grab it and go pack.

The BioForm CM™, IsoForm CM™, and Exposure CM™ hipbelts (patent pending) are a revolutionary advance in the area of custom fit hipbelts.

What’s in your pack? Backpacking gear list 1: The traditional backpacker
"In the 'good old days,' a pack loaded with a weekend’s worth of gear might weigh upwards of 30 pounds. Today, lightweight equipment and high-tech features make it easier to carry everything you need on your back. Most backpackers choose the appropriate gear by considering criteria such as comfort, durability, cost and weight. This can be tricky, as often an improvement for one criteria comes at the expense of one or more of the others. The list below highlights some of the most popular choices, for those seeking a balanced approach..."

      Comments about Osprey Aether 60 Backpack:

      Wow, very impressed with this bag. I went to the store last week to try on several packs, and kept coming back to the Aether 60. I feel like I finally know how a backpack is really supposed to fit. Carson(at the North Shore store) was a huge help, showing me how to adjust each of the packs I was trying on, and telling me about all the features of each pack I was checking out.

      After a weekend of backpacking, I've got 0 complaints about this pack, and am very satisfied with my decision to buy it.

      Comments about Osprey Aether 60 Backpack:

      This pack transfers weight wonderfully. Super comfy and user friendly. Adjustable to get the perfect fit and versatile; for weekend trips or longer. Great for overseas travel too. The hip pad needs a while to break in though.

        Comments about Osprey Aether 60 Backpack:

        This pack is perfect for me, as well as others. I use this pack for 3 day hike in fly fishing trips. The pack can easily be utilized for 4 or maybe even five days. Comfortable and easy to load. I can strap my rods on the outside, pack my reels, tent and other gear and be ready to hit up some pretty sick trout streams for a few day. I would recommend this to anyone!!!

        Comments about Osprey Aether 60 Backpack:

        Picked up this badboy for an extended backpacking trip across Asia.
        Pros: Very comfortable. The AirScape suspension does the job. Hipbelts are moldable and large. Very comfortable all around.
        Lightweight
        Plenty of pockets and storage.
        The Aether is able to be connected to the Daylite day pack. The main reason I bought it.
        Cons: No separate access to sleeping bag compartment.
        Hipbelt could benefit from some extra small zippered compartments.
        Daylite daypack attachment is not the easiest to figure out.

        All in all, I have been very satisfied with this pack. It holds plenty, is comfortable to wear and does what it's supposed to do. I really like the way I can attach my daypack to the main pack, however that convenience does come at a price, as the daylite is somewhat smaller than my usual daypack. Overall, a bomber pack from a bomber company.
