The revolutionary Anti-Gravity Suspension system in the Osprey Aura AG 50 Women’s pack delivers an unparalleled balance of support and ventilation. Load-hauling capability and smart organization add to its hard-earned trail cred.
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.
An engineering work of art as much as a carrying system, Osprey's Anti-Gravity Suspension system equips the Aura AG 50 Women’s pack 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 XSmall Aura AG 50 Women’s pack fits torsos ranging from 14”-17”, the Small fits from 16”-19”, and the Medium accommodates torso lengths ranging from 18”-21”. 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 25-40 pounds of gear, the Aura AG 50 Women’s pack lends versatility for outings ranging from overnight trips to fast-moving, light-packing extended backpacking trips. The XSmall size offers 2746 cubic inches of storage capacity, the Small offers 2868 cubic inches, and the Medium Aura AG 50 Women’s pack has a 3051 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 Aura AG 50 to a single, large compartment.
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 Aura AG 50 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.
The pack has integrated trekking pole loops and an internal lined sleeve and dual exit ports combine to make the Aura AG 50 Women’s pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included). Zippered mesh pockets on the hipbelt keep snacks and essential items within easy reach.

Real Customer Reviews
- If You Like Hugs...
Likes: If you like the feeling of hugs...then this backpack is awesome. The frame seems to really mold to my back and hips. While wearing other backpacks, I had a hard time with foam lumbar supports feeling too stiff, but the tension support design in the Aura was just right. I tried both this and the 65 L pack, but the 50 L was just more comfortable, in my opinion.
Dislikes: I wish that it had bottom straps like the 65 L version.
- Thumbs up
Likes: Comfortable, adjustable fit for layering clothing. Waist support helps take the load off your back nicely. Many pockets in convenient locations. Durable, easy to clean.
- Awesome pack
Likes: Air between pack and back, hip belt pockets, weight distribution
- Great fit
Likes: Smooth mesh in belt and shoulder straps is ultra comfortable.
Stretchy pockets on sides were terrific for easy access to water bottles.
Lightweight and big enough to carry the things I needed. It was good not to have more room because I probably would have been tempted to carry more. I estimate my pack weight was around 35-40 pounds. So good I've ordered one as a gift for my sister.
Dislikes: The lumbar belt is under tension from the mesh so it is in a semi-closed position when you are trying to put it on. I found it tricky at times to get the belt untrapped from behind my back when slipping into my loaded pack.
- Great pack
Likes: Comfortable, well organized, the new technology is well worth the money
Dislikes: A few TOO many buckles
- Awesome pack
Likes: My husband purchased the atmos 65 and that pack is huge. This is the next best thing! There are ways to customize the fit, and you can really fill a lot in this pack; sleeping bag; cooking supplies; food, hydration reservoir, (I'm not carrying the tent, but it would fit), clothes, and you have still room for a sleeping pad and I'm even bringing the chair zero. I'm so glad I purchased the aura 50!
Dislikes: None so far
- GF loves it!
Likes: Was perfect for backpacking trip to Death Valley. good weight support with the anti-gravity system.
- feels great
Likes: Placed bottles of water in the pack to try it on, felt light and comftrouble
Dislikes: did not notice anything for now
- 6ft tall and it fits great
Likes: I bought this for my wife and she loves the color (more light grey than silver). The material is easy to keep clean and the Anti-gravity harness is perfect.
Dislikes: One thing that would make this perfect would be some sort of tie downs for the waist belt slack. Once you cinch it the straps hang
- Decent pack with some major downfalls
Likes: The AG system is nice. It keeps you cool and keeps the pack from contacting your back. The pack is durable and has plenty of room. The style of the pack is nice. The top of the pack was convenient with two different compartments to separate your gear. The pack was mis-sized at REI and my wife could have used a small instead of a medium. For those between sizes I always recommend buying the smaller size because I like the pack up on the hips and not sagging after a little bit of a hike. This keeps the weight on the hips and not on the shoulders.
Dislikes: Waist pack is hard to slip on easily, it likes to fold on itself. The harness system isn't as adjustable as the Ariel pack which is what my wife decided to buy after a weekend test of this pack. The shoulder straps were not as comfortable as the Ariel. No front access of the pack, which is also another selling factor for the Ariel.
