Combining its hard-earned reputation as a rugged load-hauling option for extended backpacking trips with the revolutionary Anti-Gravity suspension the Osprey Ariel AG 65 Women’s pack offers a dynamic responsive fit 3600+ cubic inches of storage capacity and a weight-carrying capacity of up to 60 pounds!
Committed to providing all outdoor enthusiasts with optimal performance Osprey equips its women's packs with gender-specific design features. Harnesses are cut wider through the collar bone area and have an ergonomic taper in the chest area. Offering a women's specific cant and a narrower cut the hipbelts found on Osprey's women's packs also cater to female users.
Osprey's innovative Anti-Gravity suspension system equips the pack with weight-carrying efficiency breathability and a contoured fit. A broad-mesh tensioned backpanel stretches all the way out across the lumbar portion of the pack. Though the pack maintains constant responsive contact with the wearer warm air can escape freely because of the separation caused between the mesh and the pack itself. Beneath the mesh a peripheral LightWire aluminum frame. A sliding sternum strap and adjustable load-lifter straps further enhance fit.
Accommodating backpackers of different heights the pack is available in your choice of sizes. The Xsmall size fits torsos ranging from 14”-17” the Small fits from 16”-19” the Medium fits from 18”-21” and the Large accommodates torso lengths ranging from 20”-22”. An Anti-Gravity IsoForm harness and a fully-padded moldable IsoForm hipbelt maximize performance fit and comfort.
The pack’s large main compartment is reached through a traditional top-loading access point but a large J-shaped zipper on the front of the pack also allows quick access to the interior. Additionally a lower compartment serves as a dedicated spot for stowing your sleeping bag or other clothes and gear. A removable divider enables you to open up the interior to create a single spacious compartment. A large front pocket utilizes welded stretch woven fabric to serve as a convenient storage spot for discarded layers or other gear. Elastic side pockets are ideal for stashing water bottles or other smaller items. Integrated hipbelt pockets provide a spot to keep essentials close at hand. Side compression straps enable you to cinch down your pack to keep contents safely and securely in place and also double as lash points for additional gear. Buckled straps that pass over the front of the packbag are designed to further enhance the compressibility of the pack and provide yet another place to lash gear. A removable top lid protects the contents of the pack and can be removed entirely to save weight . Adding increased versatility the lid also serves as a streamlined stand-alone daypack with its own minimalist shoulder straps an adjustable sternum strap and an internal hydration sleeve.
Other features include integrated Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole loops ice axe loops with bungee tie-offs removable sleeping pad straps and an internal sleeve that makes the pack hydration compatible (hydration system sold separately).

Real Customer Reviews

Sleeping bag compartment
Love the 45 degree water bottle pockets
Likes: Durable material, good suspension system, well fitting for short torsos, everything about this backpack is adjustable, head removable, pockets have openings halfway so you can reach your water bottle and put it back easily, woman specific.
Dislikes: Shoulder straps could have been a little larger to make it more comfortable for long hikes.

Likes: I'm very happy with the comfort and packability of this bag as it is my first backpacking pack. The color is also fantastic.
- Awesome color and one very versatile pack. The AG netting seems to pull the top of the pack toward your head,but with some adjustments,it is quickly fixed.
Likes: Detachable daypack is great,access to the pack is excellent and no need to tear apart like a top loading style.

- Worked great
