The revolutionary Anti-Gravity Suspension system in the Osprey Atmos AG 65 delivers an unparalleled balance of support and ventilation. Load-hauling capability and smart organization add to the pack’s hard-earned trail cred.
An engineering work of art as much as a carrying system, Osprey's Anti-Gravity Suspension system equips the Atmos AG 65 with weight-carrying efficiency, breathability, and a contoured fit that’ll nearly make you forget you have it on your back. A broad-mesh, tensioned backpanel stretches seamlessly from the shoulder straps all the way out across the hipbelt. 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. Innovative stiffeners in the load-lifters even enable the shoulder straps to stand away from your body without jeopardizing performance. Beneath the mesh, a lightweight aluminum frame provides support and distributes weight. A sliding sternum strap and an adjustable Fit-on-the-Fly hipbelt with extandable padded “fins” further enhance fit. Accommodating backpackers of different heights, the pack is available in your choice of sizes. The Small Atmos AG 65 fits torsos ranging from 16”-19”, the Medium fits from 18”-21”, and the Large accommodates torso lengths ranging from 20”-23”. Built in adjustability in the harness makes it easy to reset the height of the shoulder straps to offer the best fit within those stated torso ranges.
Designed to comfortably carry 30-50 pounds of gear, the Atmos AG 65 lends versatility for outings ranging from overnight trips to fast-moving, light-packing extended backpacking trips. The Small size offers 3783 cubic inches of storage capacity, the Medium offers 3967 cubic inches, and the Large Atmos AG 65 has a 4150 cubic inch capacity. The main packbag has full top access and a zippered divider between the main compartment and a separate front entry sleeping bag compartment allows for organization of wet and dry gear. When hauling longer items or in need of access between the two compartments, you can unzip the divider and convert the Atmos AG 65 to a single, large compartment.
Dual front pockets are accessed through welded weather-resistant zippers. A welded, stretch woven nylon pocket on the front of the pack allows you to stash extra layers or other gear. Dual zippered pockets located inside the floating lid of the Atmos AG 65 provide other organizational options. If you want to save weight and/or you are traveling light, you can remove the lid entirely and use the integrated, low-profile FlapJacket lid to keep the contents of the packbag fully protected. Side compression straps help you cinch down your load and also serve as lash points for additional gear. Stretch woven side pockets are the perfect place for stashing water bottles or other smaller items.
Other features found on the Atmos AG 65 include integrated trekking pole loops and removable straps located in front of the sleeping bag compartment that securely stow sleeping pads. An internal lined sleeve and dual exit ports combine to make the Atmos AG 65 hydration compatible (hydration system not included). Zippered mesh pockets on the hipbelt keep snacks and essential items within easy reach.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great fitting pack
Likes: Pack fits and feels great. The dual side pouches are much larger than my previous pack. Plenty of space in this pack for all your gear. Took the family backpacking and fit 3 sleeping bags, all of the cookware, lights, 2L of water, etc.and the tent in this pack.
Dislikes: I wish there were more loops for suspending gear to the outside of the pack. Not a significant drawback though as the zippered compartments provide plenty of space for at least a weeks worth of gear.
- Most excellent bag!
Likes: Excellent bag construction.
Many nice adjustments.
Many parts and straps are padded.
When you fill it up with stuff, it feels A LOT heavier in hand than on the back; all the weight seems to rest of the hips.
Dislikes: The back panel is a bit stiff, but this 'complaint' is hardly warranted since it has to be stiff for it to function properly.
- Best pack I own
Likes: Suspension System
Dislikes: Osprey doesn't include a raincover in the US models.
- Great Pack!!
Likes: Great hip belt, rides on the back well, great size, the AG mesh backing keeps the back nice and cool.
Dislikes: Could use a few more external attachment points
Likes: Nice size, comfy, better circulation between back and pack
Dislikes: I bit heavier than other packs this size.
- The "Anti-Gravity" suspension system is a godsend--I was able to carry everything including 2 gallons of water without feeling any excessive burden. I was able to walk, climb, and even run without any jostling or struggle. The ventilation is the best I've
Likes: this pack has the best suspension system that I have used. The anti-gravity system helps carry disperse the weight evenly and as well helps your back breath
- Anti Gravity is Awesome
Likes: I have other Osprey packs but thought I would try out the AntiGravity system when I purchased my largest pack. I could not be more pleased. The pack hugs your waist by design and carries the load where it should. Perfect in all ways.
- Awesome Back Pack
Likes: I took this backpack for three days and two nights hike and I had around 25lbs of stuffs in the bag but the weight never felt too heavy to carry because of the anti gravity suspension.
The suspension was also helpful on distributing the load on my hips and it made carrying the backpack easier.
The mesh system helped to keep my back dry from sweat as the air can circulate easily.
Dislikes: The waster reservoir pouch could have been in a better location.
- This pack feels like it was made just for me
Likes: Where do I begin... The anti-gravity system on this thing is out of this world. You get the great ventilation expected from an external frame pack but the stability of an internal one. It seriously molds right to your back. I stuffed this thing, strapped it up, and could hardly tell I was wearing so much weight. The zippers work well (this is big for me), it's easy to adjust, seems to be made with quality materials, and is backed up with Osprey's almighty warranty (I hope I never have to use that, but if I do I feel optimistic that they'll respond well given the reputation they've worked so hard to develop).
Dislikes: This is only a "it would be even cooler if this was an option" kind of thing, but I'd love to see Osprey add an additional zipper that goes around the two front pockets that creates a third entry into the pack so as to open it like a piece of luggage (for example, the Kelty Redcloud has this feature). Seems to be flawless though, and no one could beat Backcountry Edge's price of 20% off with free shipping and no tax and a 1-year warranty!
- Awesome Backpack
Likes: I really love everything about this backpack. Seems very durable, its very comfortable, compatible with hydration system, sleeping bag compartment. It has everything I was looking for in a backpack. Packing list is nearly complete for my PCT thru-hike!
Dislikes: none so far
