When it comes to easy access and organization of gear, Osprey has introduced the J-panel on the front of the pack to provide quick and easy access to your main compartment without opening the top-loading system. Osprey's InsideOut compression straps can be internally or externally routed on your pack to make securing your gear a breeze no matter where it is and the Aether 60 also features a hydration compatibility system to hang water bladders as large as 3 liters and route the hose out either side of the pack. An internal compression strap also runs through the top loading system to help synch down compressible items to help secure loads or provide more room, and the sleeping pad straps and tool attachment loops help to easily secure equipment to the outside of your pack. If you're planning on doing some dayhikes while your out and need access to gear without all the bulk of a full-sized pack, the Aether 60 even provides you with other options. The top pocket is easily converted to a lumbar pack for quick dayhikes and built-in cordloops are designed to help secure a Daylite or Solo daypack for something with a little extra room.
When it comes to organizing equipment and personalizing your haul system, the Aether is truly ahead of its time, but what really makes this pack the apple of Osprey's eye is its customizable hipbelt and improved suspension system. Certified dealers, like Travel Country Outdoors, provide custom molding services that will shape many of Osprey's hipbelts specifically to your waist for a personalized anatomical fit for a more comfortable carry. Absolutely packed with features for carry options, gear access, and personalized comfort, the Osprey Packs Aether 60 Backpack is truly a marvel of modern engineering and a hallmark of the Osprey line.
