One of the undoubted stars of the show at Outdoor 2014, Friedrichshafen, Germany, was Osprey’s AntiGravity back-system as featured on their new Atmos AG and Aura AG packs, which also feature what Osprey tout as the ‘world’s first fully ventilated hipbelt’.
Both packs have seamless mesh across a 3D cavity on the backpanel, which provides wearers with a breathable and flexible contoured fit. The adjustable BiostretchTM/ExoFormTM harness and Fit-on-the-FlyTM mesh hipbelt give great pack stability and reduce roll. They also feature InsideOutTM compression for heightened load balance. These combine to reduce fatigue and give users supreme comfort, even when carrying heavy loads.
They’re built to last, with Osprey’s unique attention to detail and high-quality materials present throughout. The series sets a new standard with a host of innovative features including; Stow-on-the-GoTM trekking pole attachment, sleeping bag compartment, inbuilt raincover and removable FlapJacketTM top cover.
The Atmos AG is also available in a female specific design, the Aura AG. Both Atmos and Aura are available in 65L and 50L, giving you the opportunity to carry extra when you need it most.
