Osprey Packs Aether 85 Backpack
The updated Men's Osprey Osprey Packs
Aether 85 Backpack was designed to carry heavy loads and do it comfortably. Osprey knows that one-size-fits-most may not offer the perfect fit for every one and that when packing about 50 lbs of your life on your back, you need a pack that fits you specifically. Adjustable, customizable hipbelt and harness allows for that perfect fit. Even if you find your torso length is in-between sizes, simply adjust the pack's length by an inch or so. Once your pack fits your torso length, your hip circumference, and your harness fit needs you can be sure that your load will sit much more comfortably on your hips. To keep the comfort coming, the IsoForm hipbelt can be taken to your local Osprey dealer and heated to mold directly to your hip shape, giving you miles of broken in comfort in a mere twenty minutes. Few features need updating, but those they did just make this Osprey Aether 85 pack even better for travelers of all kinds. Front J-zip entrance allows for quick access to the main compartment, which along with top loading and the separated zipped off sleeping bag compartment makes organization and retrieval of gear smooth and simple. Extra storage can be found in the zippered hipbelt pockets and the removable top pocket, or hood, of ths Aether 85. With a quick tug of the built in belt, the hood turns into the perfect lumbar style day pack for those small day hikes that don't require, or go better without, your entire backpack weighing you down. Updated hipbelt, harness and backpanel are as comfortable as they are stiff allowing you to carry weight without worry. With an array of other features, the Opsrey Aether 85 Backpack packs a lot without surrendering comfort and features.
