Lightweight & Durable

The Atmos 65 Backpack is lightweight, rugged, comfortable and highly organized making it the perfect choice for the serious Appalachian Trail thru-hiking and hardcore adventures.

If you are looking for a strong, durable lightweight backpack perfect for everything from a laidback overnight camping trip with friends to a hard driving, long distance, light-packing adventures then this is the perfect backpack for you. The Atmos 65 comes in three sizes. The large has 68 liters of space and weighs just 3 pounds, 12 ounces. All three sizes are designed to carry up to 50 pounds of gear quite comfortably.

This backpack is made up of two compartments, the main compartment and the sleeping bag compartment. The main compartment is accessed from the top and contains a hydration sleeve as well as a reservoir clip. The sleeping bag compartment is perfect for separating wet clothes and gear from dry. The two compartments have are separated by a zippered divider which can be opened to create one big storage area.

The Atmos 65 owes its stability, fantastic weight distribution and breathability to Osprey’s AirSpeed Suspension system. The LiteWire aluminum alloy frame that makes up the skeleton of the backpacks structure is super lightweight and works together with the 3D tensioned mesh back panel and twin titanium struts to offer you the pinnacle in comfort, support and flexibility.

The shoulder harness is incredibly comfortable and adjusts over a range of 3 inches, enabling you to customize the fit. The dual-density foam in the hipbelt of the Atmos 65 enhances support and the spacer mesh makes it quite breathable. A special adjustment system exclusive to Osprey allows you to adjust the fit of the hipbelt on the go.

The thing that really sets this backpack apart from the rest is organization. The Atmos 65 has a floating lid containing both a large packet and a mesh pocket. There are two front pockets that have very rugged, welded weather resistant zippers and a stretch woven nylon pocket at the very front of the pack, perfect for carrying a jacket or gear. There are stretch woven pockets on the sides of the backpack which are perfect for carrying water bottles. In addition, there are zippered hipbelt pockets for gear that you might want to keep handy such as mobile phone, camera and energy bars. The exterior of the Atmos 65 features Osprey’s Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment system, removable sleeping pad straps and two axe loops with tie-offs.
