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 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.
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.

Real Customer Reviews
- it fits my petite frame nicely
Likes: its lightweight, sturdy and spacious
Dislikes: if only they have more colors.
- Great fit, super comfy, excellent support but will it last?
Likes: This review is for both the Aura(F) and the Atmos(M): The Anti-Gravity system does work like wonders. It's super comfy and forms to your back and hips. It's ventilated in such a way that the mesh keeps the nylon material away from adhering to your back. The empty pack is relatively light in weight and has enough compartments making organization easy.
Dislikes: One thing that concerns me is the elastic mesh. Anything elastic will age and for a pack this expensive, I'd like it to last at least 5-10 years. Since the Anti-Gravity relies heavily on this elastic mesh, it loses it's selling point if the mesh ever ages. It's hard stitched into the backpack making it impossible to replace if needed. As I can't attest to the longevity of the pack, I'm knocking off one star since I'm 100% sure elastics age over time and the lack of options for future replacement makes it so you have to buy a brand new backpack when that happens.
- Very comfortable pack
Likes: My wife loves this pack. She usually uses a much more minimalist pack but now we are hauling our kids gear and she needed more space and better suspension. She loves the AG system and even though she is carrying more weight she says it feels like less.
Dislikes: No dislikes so far.
Likes: It was what I wanted
- Great Pack
Likes: Fit and function
Dislikes: none yet
