Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pack I bought this pack for a trip in Washington and I was thanking myself everyday for doing so. I had no discomfort, even on long 20+ mile overnight trips with my pack weighing about 25 lbs. There is no weight on the shoulders at all and it fits very snug on the waist. The pockets are well placed and helps organize gear. I did my whole trip with the lid removed and was able to use the bag as a carry-on on my flight. I only wish they made the lid convert to a day pack - it is the perfect size…but I think I might try to rig something up. A rain cover included would also be a plus! Regardless, its a fantastic pack and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Customer I mainly use my pack for travel, not exactly hiking. I have a Deuter 70L that I have taken all over the USA and to several countries and back. Loved this pack. Unfortunately on a flight home from New Zealand it was destroyed. I was very reluctant to purchase a new pack. The Deuter was an extension of me. After purchasing this Osprey... that poor Deuter is not even an option! I Love this pack. it fits me perfectly. The way the hip support contours to the female form is spot on for comfort. I found all of the compartment locations convenient more so than I thought they would be. I am one happy customer and can't wait to take this pack on more adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome comfort, even when my feet were crying I got this pack to replace my previous Aura, which had a slight defect that gave me a hot spot on my back. Took it to Yosemite and tested it over 3 days and 45 miles and it was perfect! It never felt like it touched my shoulders, my back was ventilated and sweat free, even on the hottest of days, and it was super easy to adjust on the move. My only suggestions would be a slightly larger waist belt pocket (doesn't fit a phone and things can be hard to get out of the pocket) and a small net like pocket in the lid for very small items that are easily lost and/or fall to the bottom of the pack. It's a great pack for the value and even with my tendency to pack too much, I had room left over for longer treks and more gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort without flaw I purchased this pack last spring and since then it has seen many miles from Alaska to Iceland and throughout the Washington Cascades! It is by far the most comfortable pack I have ever owned. The hip straps seem to just hug your body and I haven't experienced any hot spots or bruising. The outside pockets are great for stuffing shed layers and its nice the water bottle pockets go up or to the side. I didn't really see the point in the separation flap, so I cut that out. Overall, I definitely recommend this pack for everything from an overnight trip to a long distance trek!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from terrific pack Bought this in silver at the beginning of last summer. Spent 4 hours in REI trialing different packs and this one just hugged my body. I love the back vent because I was getting so sweaty with my day pack (which doesn't have a vent). The color silver actually doesn't show a lot of dirt if anyone cares. I packed this sucker up. Had a bear canister halfway exposed on top. There are tons of fun straps and securing hooks you can use to secure extra overflowing items. I've had my tripod in the hiking poles loops. Fits great. No real complaints. Solid purchase. Has been thrown down. Fallen over. Gotten wet and overfilled. Still a solid purchase. But don't ever buy a backpack online based on a review ;-) Try them on. Everyone's body is different. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40lbs feels like 20 I have loaded this pack beyond the recommended weight limit and it has performed amazingly well! Bear Vault 500 fit between lid and main pack. I have used all the features to get a solid fit, no bruises, no chafing. I can trim it down to day pack use. I know it sounds crazy but 40lbs on this pack feels waaaay lighter than 40lbs on a different brand name pack. I just wish the hip pockets weren't so tight, hard to get stuff out. And a longer hip belt would be a great option for us wider pear shaped gals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First backpack for first backpacking trip The salesperson at REI assisted with fitting and purchase of pack. I was told "don't buy a pack for the color or pockets, but how it fits." Of course, my body liked one of the most expensive packs....but I had no sore spots on my first time out. I did find it to be quite cumbersome to get on and off as the hip belts get caught behind and it was difficult to pull them around. There is a backwards zipper in the back panel of the pack that no one seems to know it's function, so it remained functionless. Overall, I liked the pack and had no issues. I was able to fit everything I needed (or thought I needed) for a weekend trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my first 30 miles easy! While I can't compare to other packs, since this was my first, I did do a lot of research and used this on my first 4-day, 30 mile, backpacking trip at RMNP. Of course, being a newbie, I packed too much, and subsequently learned what I could do without. This pack didn't leave any kind of soreness anywhere. It really felt molded to my back, and was easy in adjusting my load. I don't like a sweaty back, and this design kept me cool and comfortable as the temps climbed while descending. It took some beating - and I was surprised how the dirt didn't stick to it. The silver was the only available color at the time and I really had my reservations about it, but it looks brand new still. I'm hooked and am looking forward to using this for many more years!

I have a 16" torso - which size should I get?

Asked by: Speed Bump
i also have a 16" torso and would recommend the s.  xs was too small for me, and using xs on the "largest setting" doesn't work as well as s on the "smallest setting" in my experience with osprey.

What's the height/length (top to bottom) of this pack frame? I'd like to know if it will work as a carry-on item for flights that have a 45 in limit.

Asked by: loves NC
The Aura 65 AG will measure 31 x 15 x 15 inches. Most airlines require carry-on items not to exceed 45 linear inches (L + W + H). The Aura 65 pack measures at 61 linear inches and will be too big for a carry-on. We would highly recommend checking with your airline prior to your trip.

My major concern is the hip belt. I love that it clasps my waist - but how to get it on when there isn't a friend or a high enough rock and I have to put it on myself and it's fully loaded. I had it on a test run this weekend and it's a major concern.

We would recommend reading our Expert Advice article on how to hoist a loaded pack.

Is there a divider separating the sleeping back compartment from the rest of the pack? If so, and if the divider can be opened, is it opened/closed using buckles or just by pulling on a strap? I don't know if what I'm trying to ask makes sense!

Asked by: Becki_G
There is a divider in the bag BUT avoid using the divider. To have items as close together as possible is what you want. It would be best to keep heavier items near the bottom of the pack and items you wouldn't be too concerned about getting wet if you fall in a stream(items that are down related don't let get wet).

I just bought this pack and seems all well and good, but I thought it was supposed to come with a rain fly and I can't seem to locate it. Is it in a pocket that I haven't found yet?

The Aura 65 AG Pack does not come with a rain cover.

Do I need to buy a rain cover for this pack? or does it come with one??

Asked by: Smolls
This pack does not come with a rain cover. A pack rain cover in the 60 – 80 liter range will work:

My dtr was looking to purchase an Osprey 65 sz small last year. How does the 65 AG compare for sz and features?

Asked by: DLGOregon
The newer Aura AG offers a similar fit for each size. The main difference is the AG (Anti-Gravity) suspension system. This system offers increased ventilation and a superior fit due to the natural wrap of the mesh back panel and hipbelt.

Can the removable top be used as a hip pack for day hikes?

Asked by: Plaff
The top pocket can be removed, but it does not set up as a hip/fanny/lumbar pack.
