  • ReCurve supsension optimizes fit and load transfer; features an HDPE framesheet, two aluminum stays and dual aluminum rods
  • Running down the sidewall, ReCurve aluminum rods create a pretensioned lift mechanism that resists sag and actively transfers load to hips
  • Load-lifter straps act with ReCurve rods and framesheet to draw load snug against your back for increased control and stability
  • Gender specific, the interchangeable, laminated dual-density shoulder straps adjust easily to fit a man's shoulder and chest contours
  • Provides complete access to main compartment via top-loading and side zippered openings
  • Externally accessible, wide-mouth sleeping bag compartment accommodates large synthetic bags
  • Side pockets, one zippered and one mesh, keep essentials handy and secure and double as slots for hauling skis A-frame style
  • StraightJacket wings let you securely compress the contents of the pack, whether it's full or nearly empty, without sag or load distortion
  • Wings buckle across the front when full; for small loads, connect straps to buckles at the edge of the backpanel, cinching one panel over the other
  • Stretch-woven front pocket allows quick and easy stashing

Osprey Argon 85 Packis rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated4out of5byfromSo Far So GoodI bought this pack right after Christmas. All I can say is that so far it lives up if not exceeds my expectations. I would have given it 5 stars but I am only getting ready to use it for my 3rd time this coming weekend.

Rated5out of5byfromBest Bigboy Pack!I use this when I go with my son's Boy Scout hikes. Packed with 60lb gear but feels nothing. Pack is heavy but once it's fitted, you'll hardly feel the load. Price might put you off but got it at REI on deal for almost half-off! Can't go wrong with that!
