Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Osprey Ariel Plus 60 Pack - Women's

(1/1)

As with any Osprey, the construction quality is excellent. You have all the features one would expect at this price point - sturdy dividers that are removable, high quality zippers, front panel access, rain jacket, and very spacious compartment for sleeping bag. The biggest risk you will take by buying without trying is the comfort based on your torso - for a couple of lengths, Osprey recommends either of the two sizes - and it is really a function of how comfortable you will feel with the strap lengths, and the tightness of the hip belts. For a 5'9" teenager (slim), this was a bit of a hassle, for an average sized 5'11" the fit and comfort was excellent

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Strap

Osprey Ariel Plus 60 Pack - Women's

(1/1)

bag, too. Might be time for a new one!) So I ended up strapping it to the outside of the bag (as seen in the photo). However, the two straps that are meant to be used to tighten up the main compartment after packing, I had to use to strap my sleeping bag. They were a bit short - I managed, but only because the pack was not completely full and there was 'wiggle room'
