The revolutionary Anti-Gravity Suspension system in the Osprey Aura AG 65 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 65 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 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 30-50 pounds of gear, the Aura AG 65 Women's pack lends versatility for outings ranging from overnight trips to fast-moving, light-packing extended backpacking trips. The XSmall size offers 3661 cubic inches of storage capacity, the Small offers 3783 cubic inches, and the Medium Aura AG 65 Women's pack has a 3967 cubic inch capacity. The main packbag has full top access and a 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 unbuckle the divider and convert the Aura AG 50 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 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.
Other features found on the Aura AG 65 Women's pack 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 Aura AG 65 Women's pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included). Zippered mesh pockets on the hipbelt keep snacks and essential items within easy reach.
Constructed of lightweight, abrasion-resistant fabrics, the Osprey Aura AG 65 Women's pack is available in your choice of sizes and colors.

Real Customer Reviews
- Excellent bag, better than expected
Likes: This is as good as all of the reviews describe, and even better! I've never been so in awe as I opened the packaged pack, learning about all of the straps and little places to store the bungies and straps. Definitely watch the videos on BackcountryEDGE.com. Becky does a fabulous job explaining the pack's features, and how to properly fit the pack. Awesome job, Becky!
Dislikes: None so far. It's important to order the proper size. That's where it pays to watch Becky's video on the pack, and how to order the proper size if you are on the border of two sizes (like me). I wish I watched her video before I ordered mine.
- My wife's review
Likes: very comfortable and holds a lot
Dislikes: nothing so far
- BEST BAG EVER
Likes: soo much room and can stick things everywhere is all the extra pockets
- Solid pack
Likes: Wife is happy. i have the Atmos AG 65, so this is the womens version.
Dislikes: slightly heavy, hard to one hand zip the pouches on hip belt
- Great product but yet to use!
Likes: The pack has many great features and will most likely be the best choice for her. The adjustable fit and the light weight material are nice features along with the many useful pockets. She has not used the pack but will in several months.
Dislikes: Only one real dislike. Her waist is very small at a 25 inch. She purchased the small size pack with her torso size at 17 inches. The waist belt is a bit loose and is at it usable limit even though the manufacturer states 24 inches is workable. We will see when it's loaded how much weight can be transferred to the hips with the looser waist belt. It looks like she may be ok but it's close.
- impressions after 1st use (3day/2nights)
Likes: -Hip pocket big enough to hold iphone -- gave me easy access for frequent photos
-SO comfortable and my load felt surprisingly light while wearing the backpack, did not feel too top-heavy or off balance. i was even able to run downhill!
-Straps and back didn't get too sweaty, no blisters or sore spots
-Didn't have a raincover and got caught in some short showers -- but the bag didn't get soggy and dried quickly
Dislikes: Multiple openings in outer side pockets: being able to reach water bottles while wearing the pack is super convenient, but i didn't bring enough bottles to use this feature. I was afraid to put small things in those pockets bc I wouldn't notice if they fell out.
- Pack and go
Likes: Love this pack, it is comfortable, the price was good, it does hold a good amount of stuff. See how it does on the pct.
Dislikes: Was difficult to get it to fit right.
- Excellent and durable option for beginner and advanced backpackers
Likes: The pack is durable and backed by Osprey’s legendary lifetime warrranty and customer service. There are a lot of features and pockets.
Dislikes: I am used to a lighter base weight pack albeit with fewer pockets and feature. If this interests you, check out the Osprey Exos/Eja.
- Comfortable when adjusted
Likes: Great adjustments (watch videos)
Dislikes: Took a couple of checks of videos to work out where cams are on the adjustable harness - not a dislike but had to search for how to do this
