    Osprey Atmos 65 Pack is rated 4.2766 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I LOVE Osprey...........but I LOVE Osprey products, I really do. I have the Osprey Poco Premium child carrier and I can hike 6-7 miles with my 1 year old plus some gear stowed in the pack and I barely feel any additional weight. The Poco does a tremendous job at spreading the weight and it has a great hipbelt system. I bought this because it was an Osprey pack, got pretty good reviews, and was exactly the size that I needed. I used this pack about 6 times on hikes ranging from 4 to 9 miles. I really wanted to like this pack but I had to return it. Part of the problem isn't necessarily a problem with the pack but that I'm not a small guy. I'm 5'11" and 220 pounds. The bottom of the frame, which is supposed to wrap around your waist (which I'm sure it does on thinner men) just dug right into the corners of my back. I felt like the Atmos had half the features of the Aether but wasn't half the price. Like most other reviewers, I aslo struggled with the water bottle holders, the external pockets couldn't be filled AFTER the inside of the pack was filled, the hipbelt wasn't replaceable and the hydration pack sleave was half the height that it should of been. The Aether solves all of these problems and it's a much better fitting pack. Yes, it weighs a pound more for roughly the same internal volume, but at 40 years old, I'm all about comfort rather than weight savings. Both the Atmos and Aether are very high quality packs and seem very durable. For a little bit more money, the Aether is such a better pack. I would still recommend this pack as a great pack, but I wouldn't recommend it over the Aether.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack I purchased this pack for my first "real" backpacking trip. I'm an avid camper/hiker but it's been few years since I did a backpacking trip and then, most of our gear was brought in by truck. This time, I was going to carry everything I needed for a two night stay in the Sipsey. I can't compare this except to a pack I had years ago which had an aluminum frame lol, so I'll just comment on what advantages I found this pack to offer from my viewpoint. I'm 5'9, 170, male. I was carrying about 27 pounds. The sleeping bag compartment is a nice feature but it really doesn't matter in my opinion. When I'm ready to pitch a tent, I usually have most everything pulled out of my pack anyway, so having a separate sleeping bag compartment is not a necessity. The pack has plenty of pockets spread all over. There are two on the sides of the front facing compartment, which I didn't find a use for - yet. The top has a mesh pocket on the bottom of the flap and it has one on the back side of the flap. I really found that one handy. It has an internal flap which keeps things from falling out when the pocket is unzipped. It's actually accessible when the pack is on me. The side pockets are deep and have expandable material but my medium size water (~3" bottle was a tight fit and difficult, but not impossible, to remove with the pack on me. It was difficult to insert a filled Osprey 3L hydration bladder with the pack full but I decided not to use the bladder anyway since I had my water bottle and a water filter. If I ever use a bladder, I would go with a smaller 2L size. Also, I noticed there was a frame support rod across the back where the bladder sits. Would seem that this would place tremendous pressure on a bladder which didn't have a hard plastic support back like the Osprey bladder has. The waste belt also has two zippered pockets which are quite handy for items needed along the trail. I was pleased with the pack on an 8 mile hike. No wobbling or pressure points and the fit was comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of bang for the buck I needed a pack for a 10 day trip to Washington's Olympic coast. I wanted something larger, light weight, comfortable, and with a floating lid to hold a bear canister. The Atmos was great. I was a little apprehensive about the material the pack was made of, it doesn't feel thick or durable but that is by design since this is supposed to be a lighter weight pack. Surprisingly the pack held up well to abrasion from rock scrambles, scrub brush, a couple of slides down some not so steep headlands; however I still try to be more careful with this pack than some of my other packs that I'd gladly drag behind a moving vehichle or trust to airline backage handlers. I have routintely over packed this bag ever so slightly and the seems buldge to reveal the stitchinig but over a year later the pack is still intact. While it hasn't been an issue it does give me pause for concern. Again, I just take care not to abuse this pack like I would some of my other bags. When loaded down the hip cut into to my hips after a few days. Over time I guess I've gotten used to it or maybe I just don't cinch it down as much but it would be nice if it was a little wider. If you're going to be carrying a lot of weight perhaps think about getting the custom moldable hipbelt with a little more padding. The pockets on the hip belt are handy for snacks and and small cameras. The side pockets are generous enough to securely hold 1 quart nalgenes; a lot packs have side pockets that are just too short to hold nalgenes. I've never used the treking pole holders or ice axe loops on any Osprey bag but I guess it's a nice option if you need it. The two zippered pockets on the front left and right of the bag are great for separating dirty gear or things you need quick access to. It would be nice if one of these pockets offered a pass through to the main compartment. Finally I love stretchy mesh outer pocket on the front of the pack, it's just a good catch all for outerlayers, water bottle, hats, raingear, or whatever. The clip on the pocket makes it convenient to cinch clothing across the pocket. The one thinig I wish this pack had is an integrated rain cover like so many other Osprey packs, but once again this is supposed to be a lighter weight pack. All in all this is a great pack and most the small issues I've had with it are answered in the Osprey Aether model

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frame Ventilation Compromises Load Underwhelmed. Very good quality and liked the ventilation provided by the frame design, but it really limited the ability to load the pack. Using a hydration bladder made it even worse. Side pouches faced wrong direction for water bottles. Returned it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pack Awesome pack. The large fit me very well, at 6-2 around 205 lbs. For my first trip with it I did 4-8 miles a day, with the pack weighing around 45 lbs. Poor gear decisions on my part, but the pack stood up well to the heavy load. Very comfortable all around. No soreness resulting from the pack. The older versions of the Atmos 65 had side access to the main compartment, and unless I cant find it, this newer model does not. That would be my only complaint.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pack with a few quirks I bought this pack for a hike in the Tetons in August of 2013. I tried several others from REI (thanks for your patience and help guys) and this one fit me the best. The suspended mesh back panel feels like my old external frame pack that conforms to my back with no gouging ,excellent ventilation, and about half the weight. The side pockets are hard for me to get a water bottle back in with the pack on. I ended up using a platypus with a hose kit which worked out well. The hip belt pockets are really tiny and that was my biggest complaint about this pack. Don't expect to get much in them. I like the way the bottom of this pack fits around my hips. It has a nice firm but well padded feel to it that stays put when I cinch it down and doesn't slide down like some of the other packs I tried. The trade off for that is deep corners on either side of the sleeping bag compartment that can end up being wasted space. I use a down quilt placed in a tyvek bag and just let it expand to fill the corners in. At 65 liters this pack held my gear just fine including my bear canister. The mesh pocket on the front held my tarp and kept it away from everything else inside. Everything in life is a tradeoff and this pack met my needs for comfort and light weight. Some tie off loops on the top lid would have been nice to string some bungee cord through to stash small items under. I've not found the perfect pack yet and none of my nit picks are deal breakers for me. My pack weight was about 28 pounds with 1 liter of water and I'm happy with the way this pack performed at that weight. I'm 5'8", 175 pounds and the medium fit me best. Torso measurement was 18.5"

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pack, a couple pointers I mainly use this pack to carry a tent, sleeping bag, some clothes, and some food, for 2-3 day hiking/camping in dry warm weather. I have found the pack causes my front/upper shoulders to ache if it's not balanced near-perfectly. If one side has more weight than the other, I have not found a way to adjust any of the straps, in any combination, to make the pack comfortable around my chest and shoulders. This might be due to padding, or design, I'm not sure since it's my first pack. When the pack does not have a lot of weight in it, it's a DREAM to carry. Absorbs little if any sweat from my body thanks to the great mesh back design. Compacts very nicely. Nice extras, lots of room in this pack. Try it in the store with as much weight as you can and decide from there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magic Weight Eraser My Arc'teryx Bora 95 is for long excursions and stays, like Burning Man events and such. Nothing tops it for that so I am used to being spoiled with the best. Well, until the Atmos 65. Its weight by itself is a feather. It has so many ways and places to put gear, you can almost forget what all you're carrying. For long tedious climb hikes in the White Mtns, amazing. It keeps me nimble, conforms to my profile so I don't snag on narrow/low passes. I'm 6', ~170lbs, and it fits excellent, with (as noted above) straps to spare. It sits well on my hips, I only feel weight there and a bit on shoulders. The pack seems to "want" my posture to be upright and healthy. I fit my Marmot Swallow tent, sleeping bag, stove, pans, fuel, 3 days meals for 2 people, Camelbak, clothes, tent footprint/liner, etc. in there well. It was snug, but adequate and I could have added a bit more. Lots of outside loops and resources for carrying add-ons like extra shoes, poles, pad, etc. make its baseline capacity very expandable. An inner pouch have no bottom to it (so why, then is there a zipper at the top of one of the inside ones, I wonder?), and the "hydration" set up is so incredibly stupid as to not be worthy of what is otherwise a totally awesome pack. Forget their "hydration" pouch and just stuff the CamelBak in the outside ... all will be well. A note on the waist straps ... WOW - 2'+ extra leftover on EACH side. Really? Did I miss something on how to use them? Anyway, bless you if you are big enough to need all that strappage and STILL be able to hike. You do feel like a weightless astronaut with it ... like you're going to float down the trail. I couldn't shut up and my companion kept teasing me about my endless exclamations of delight with the weight mgmt. Again, a Marmot Swallow is 8lbs+, and I didn't even feel it. After main bulk was offloaded (meals, whiskey, extra water) the weight was embarrassingly low. I read reviews of both the Arc'teryx Bora and the Osprey AFTER I bought the Osprey. I have been spoiled in my choice of both. There are reviews elsewhere (Trailspace) on Osprey that they lead the way, set the standards for other packs, is well noted. I looked at a Gregory as well as some EMS ones ... the Osprey was awesome by comparison even in the store. I cautiously kept sales receipts and such for until I loaded and tested it ... this one WON'T be returned.
