Tips for packing larger tents.
I sprung for the Osprey Aether Plus 60 which has loops with buckles just outside the sleeping bag compartment, but when it there the balance gets thrown off and pulls back in my collarbone quite a bit. I tried packing it into the pack and it feels great that way, but doesn't leave be with enough room to fit either my bear canister or cooking system. Besides getting a more compressible or compact tent, are there alternative spots to strap the tent to keep the balance?.

Awesome but flawed
Great ventilation and storage options but flawed by design, at least for me. The mesh suspension really works and keeps my back from overheating. The numerous pockets are well thought out and placed. The one HUGE flaw for the pack for me, as a mountain biker, is that the wire frame physically blocks...

Legendary Osprey quality with tons of thoughtful features
I’ve used, enjoyed, and (sometimes) abused my Osprey gear and I’ve never been let down by the backpacks or luggage. This pack is no different. The materials and components are high quality and I trust them to hold up under the most demanding conditions. The various straps, buckles, and gear loops pr...

Fantastic pack, but...
It really is a super pack in almost every way, but bet most people are trying to figure out where/how to hang a phone on it.. especially for day hikes. (its fantastic for that too, especially in the heat). The shoulder straps are thin, vented, flexy, don't have any extra strapping or attachment poin...

Osprey Aether Plus Series Review
Let me say this: the ether series is built for men to see the same packs designed for women check out the ariel series, and let me also repeat that point about carrying large loads. I think the 70 85 and 100 liter packs you see here make that clear.

Suprisingly roomy inside...
Really an amasing pack, a lot more room inside than I had anticipated & functions really well on longer trail outings superbly. Comes with Osprey's "Hydraulics" bladder + tubing which is over-engineered & is the only reason it's not a 5 star review. *Just do yourself a favor and replace the tubing w...

It's Osprey, It's Well Thought Out
Super comfortable. It can also hold a ton or compress down to slim size depending on what you need. The best part is the "frame" that holds it off your back with a mesh airflow. No more slime back after 20 minutes in the woods. I can hold snacks for 2, 2.5 liters of water, 2 tubes, multi-tool, first...
