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
- Well built
Likes: Sturdy, lots of handy and clever storage compartments, roomy, lovely color.
Dislikes: Stiff hip belt, can't be used as a day backpack (but that's ok, I expected that), doesn't come with raincover or protective duffel.
- Great women's pack
Likes: She loves the color.. fits well.. lots of pockets
Dislikes: None so far!
- Great pack
Likes: Provides plenty of room fore all gear and sensible way to organize everything. Very durable and well made. Lots of cushioning and the design makes it easier to carry the load on your hips.
Dislikes: A slight bit heavier than other packs.
- Great quality
Likes: Quality of fabric
Fit of the backpack
Dislikes: Lack of removable day pack
Darker than pictured
Likes: comfort, fit, durable- bought this pack for my daughter-in-law who hikes the PNW trails. She LOVES it!!!
- A great bag!
Likes: The one-piece anti-gravity suspension is awesome. It distributes the weight effectively and provides support across my back. Great pockets throughout.
Dislikes: I wish the top portion was able to disconnect from the bag for once you get to the camp site like slightly more expensive Osprey, but I preferred the single-piece anti-gravity on this one
- Very comfortable way to haul around 35 lbs!
Likes: I bought this pack after reading so many great reviews for it online. It was highly recommended by several different review sites and they were right. I'm 5' 8" and was a bit nervous about the sizing that put me in a Small frame, but it fits perfectly.
Large main body of the pack, with a removable flap to separate the lower access.
2 zippered vertical pockets on the front of the pack's body, I can easily fit 2 small ditty bags stacked on top of each other. Perfect for anything you want quick access to like your first aid kit or water filter.
1 large mesh pocket/stuff area in front of the vertical zip pockets. Great to shove a jacket in or anything that needs to dry during the day.
The top of the bag has 2 pockets, 1 flat zippered pocket for phone, keys and small items. Beneath that is a larger pocket with good depth and a zipper that goes most of the way around it so it's easy to get in and out of. I keep my pack cover, rain gear and an outer layer here. This upper section with 2 pockets is removable to save weight.
Hip pockets on both sides of the belt are a great convenience. They're long enough to put a full size Kind bar in them. I'd bet you could put 3-4 in a pocket, but haven't been that hungry yet.
Straps - there are 2 straps to attach a sleep mat, chair or whatever underneath the pack. There's also a nice strap on the left shoulder that can hold your trekking poles. I was surprised how well this works when I finally tried it out. They don't rub or get in the way.
Quality - The materials on this pack feel really sturdy. There are easy adjustments on harness height, belt wrap around your waist and all the usual shoulder straps. Time will tell, but I expect this pack to last for many, many adventures.
Size - I bought the 65 (rather than the 50) as my first pack so I could fit everything no matter what the season. It holds it all well!
Dislikes: I compared this to the Ariel, which has a removable top section that can function as a daypack. That's a great feature, but for the added difference in price I felt I'd be better off just buying a small packable day pack for those adventures which have me heading off on day hikes from a base camp.
Not a dislike - but make sure you measure for your size! Osprey sizing for backpacks is very specific. I don't think I own another piece of small clothing, but the small pack was the right size for my torso length and fits perfect.
- 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.
