Osprey Aether 85 backpack.
You wouldn't be able to tell this pack from a brand new one. Picked it up on sale for $199 and realized I got the wrong size. Never been on the trail! Silly me!
This a a Medium frame with the Medium hipbelt.
The Aether 85 backpack by Osprey is built to be light, without sacrificing fit and carrying comfort. Using the AirScape suspension with 7075 AL rods, ventilated nubbed foam back panel, and internal frame sheet with single aluminum stay you know your getting a pack that is built for comfort. The Aether 85 is about streamlining but still have all the bells and whistles that you expect on a weekend backpack. You have a sleeping bag compartment and sleeping pad straps with dual entry stretch woven side pockets to make it that much easier to get to your gear on the trail. The hip belt is made of IsoForm with dual density foam that is custom moldable so that you get the Lexus fit. The internal back panel also as a hydration sleeve with dual exit ports. If you like your pack streamlined, but enjoy bringing those creature comforts along, the Aether 85 is the pack for you.
