    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack Love this pack. it fits so well, even more now since I got the hip belt molded. so many compartments and you can get to the main compartment through the top or center, which i love. usually i suffer from awful back sweat, but when i wear this pack my back stays completely dry and comfy. love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new pack! I use this pack for backpacking on weekend trips up to 3 days long. My boyfriend has the model below mine, I think it's the Atmos, and was complaining about not having enough hip padding so I went with the Ariel 65 and couldn't be happier with it. It is a few ounces heavier than the Atmos but my hips and shoulders are grateful for the extra comfort. Also, it packs up nicely for trips that are no more than a few days. If you plan for more than a few days then I would recommend a larger model but, between the two of us, we were able to comfortably fit all of our gear with room to spare. My only complaint was the back ventillation is not as good as my day pack, however I would rather have the extra support then the ventillation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots to like...... Recently updated my backpack to this one. Spent several days in the Utah desert with it. Really like the fit, weight, adjustability and comfort. Was just right. However the top pack has its' zipper placed in such a manner that I ended up dumping everything out several times. If you leave it open and someone moves the pack, dump again. If the zipper was on the OTHER side of the pouch, no problem. I ended up being VERY VIGILANT about this feature. Otherwise, it was a delight to wear and kept my back cool even on some cross country dry hot routes. Would recommend this pack witht he above reservation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack! Last week was the 1st time using it and 1st time breaking them in. I had carry this pack up to 37-45lbs and it was still very comfortable at the padding and the fit. I had hiked over hills, flats, wet lands, sand, and boulders for 5-6 hours from 7500-9500 evaluation. The only thing that the straps due to the weight and movement that I need to readjust the straps to be lifted more back to place. But I'm sure that would be for every other back. Oh, I love all those side pockets and easy access places that I'm able to reach and get while I was hiking, instead of taking off and on my pack! that was very helpful. I thought it was a great pack and it did it's job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable pack! This is a fantastic pack. I took this on a canoeing/portaging trip to the Boundary Waters and every time I portaged with this pack I felt like I was just going for a walk in the woods even though I was carrying all of my gear. Whenever I portaged with someone else's pack from our group, I definitely felt it in my shoulders. This pack does a great job distributing the load and it also kept me nice and cool with the vented back panel. I also loved having so many access points to the main compartment. The sleeping bag section in the bottom was great for quickly setting up camp, and the front access point was very handy for quick access to items buried in the middle of the pack. The straps at the bottom worked well for carrying our 2 person tent and the top compartment was big enough to hold everything I wanted easy access to while we were on the move.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around good pack I bought this as my first pack after previously renting. I brought it on a one month backcountry trip in the ranges of Alaska. I was worried it wouldn't have enough room for my things but it was surprisingly adjustable and easily fit a large, 0 degree sleeping bag, a bear canister, group gear, and my personal items. The removable brain was awesome for day hikes and very comfortable, even without removing the hip belts. I have a feeling I'll be using it for a long time, although the side pockets are rather delicate and have a few holes from placing my collapsed trekking poles in them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I love this pack. I have it in blue, and even my guy friend commented that this is a really nice looking backpack. The pack is easily adjustable, so you can cinch your gear tight. The straps (shoulder and hip) are so amazing and comfortable, they mold to your body. The pockets on the hips are really convenient for things you want easy access to. Another one of my guy friends saw my pack and said he wanted to go out and get a new Osprey because this version is "so awesome" compared to his (which is only about 2 years old!). Highly recommend. You won't regret this purchase. My first pack was too big...and after about 6 miles in it on rough terrain I knew it wasn't going to work. But, because REI has such awesome customer service, they switched it out for the XS which made all the difference. The only con is the bag isn't super light...but it's a 65 so for a pack of that capacity, it really isn't bad. Buy it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well Perfect except I wish there were side load straps. Having my tent at the bottom lowers the center of gravity. I had to get a small pack with a medium or large waistband but fortunately were removable to do that. I'm shorter so needed smaller pack with a larger waist especially with a jacket on. Weight and options of this bag are great.
