Osprey Atmos AG 50 Backpack

Osprey Atmos AG (Anti-Gravity) 50 Backpack


Without getting into the exact specs about material, weight, and adjustments of the Osprey AG 50, I will speak in layman terms for the normal backpacker. This pack is badass, and I highly recommend it! If you buy a pack this year, buy this one! The AG stands for Anti-Gravity and that is exactly how this pack feels on your back. The pack is lightweight, breathable, and very durable. It has a very tough but also flexible frame to contour specifically to your body with torso and hip adjustments to fit the fattest or skinniest of hikers. It has plenty of space and pockets for short winter hikes or long summer expeditions. Osprey states that it’s rated for 25-40 lbs, but this pack can take whatever you throw at it. It has multiple straps on the top for ground pads or sleeping bags. On the side it offers straps for trekking poles and an ice ax with bungee ties. A mesh front pocket allows for extra bulk items, but is easily stretched out after multiple trips. There are also no straps at the bottom of the pack to strap a tent or sleeping bag. You have to either sew them on yourself, or buy the 65 pack. I’m not sure why Osprey would leave the straps out on the 50 bag, but they did, so buy the 65 if if they are a necessity for you.  All in all, this is the best pack I have owned thus far. The construction makes it feel as if you are barely carrying a 40 pound bag. I have used this bag for almost a year now, and it has withstood snow in Zion National Park, torrential rain in Big Sur, high winds on the John Muir Trail, and the dry desert heat of the Mojave! The durability of this pack has thoroughly impressed me, it still looks virtually brand new after all those harsh weather trips. It’s time for you to switch that old pack out for this new Osprey 50 or 65 AG, it is sure to last you for many years to come, with maybe only minimal repair and upkeep.
