Product Description

Osprey Aether 85 BackpackThe Osprey Aether 85 Backpack is known for its ability to be taken all over the world, from the summit of Everest to a backpack trip through your local wilderness. The classic Osprey Aether is in its fourth generation. The Aether 85 combines clean design, custom fit and outstanding load carrying comfort. A new IsoForm⁴ CM™ hipbelt adds stiffness and padding for even better performance with heavy loads.

Buy a plane ticket to China, pack up your gear in the Osprey Aether 85 Backpack, and wander into the land of infinite possibilities. The Osprey Aether's large storage space, multiple straps, and gear loops enable the Aether to be used for a variety of short to long backpacking trips among rice patties, snow-covered peaks, and cherry-blossom forests. Plus, if you need more space, Osprey's attachable AddOns (sold separately) make the Aether 85 large enough for two-week-long expeditions. The Aether is considered a unisex backpack. For the women's-specific fit of the Aether, take a look at the Osprey Ariel.
