Product Description

If there was ever one nagging critique about most well-designed, ultra-ergonomic Osprey packs, it was the weight. Osprey's Atmos 50 silences the critics with over 3,200 cubic inches of pack space in a supportive and functional pack design that weighs less than three pounds. If you ever wanted a supportive and lightweight backpack for moving fast and far, the Osprey Atmos 50 is easily one of the most comfortable light packs on the planet. Anything that touches your back is covered with a breathable mesh or a special perforated waffle foam that won't heat you up like conventional backpanel fabrics. The backpanel on the Atmos 50 is stretched taut so the load sinks evenly into the lumbar support area instead of riding on your hips, resulting in uniform pressure that neutralizes hot spots. Two quick release straps on the other side of the backpanel attach to your hydration pouch for fast refill access and versatile hydration tube routing. If you're looking for a lightweight pack for fast overnight trips or minimalist backpacking adventures, the Atmos 50 backpack is one of the lightest and most comfortable designs you'll find today

Love this pack
I own this pack and have used it on several multiday hikes and climbs. This pack holds 20-30 pounds quite nicely and is VERY light. The Atmos model has a very nice mesh backpanel that aides in keeping you cool during hot days. The backpanel is hollow and can be used as alternative storage for a hydration pack as well. All in all this is my favorite summer pack.

Great pack
I love Osprey packs and this one is no exception. Well built, extremely comfortable and big enough to get a weekend of gear into it. I also have an Atmos 65 for when I need longer time out and need to carry more gear but this one gets the job done. I love the mesh back, it really helps to keep my back from sweating up a storm and i actually put my hydration pack in the space there which frees up more room in the pack. The lid pocket is big enough to get all my electronic gear and a camera in nicely and I've carried up to 30 pounds with no problem in this pack. Don't expect to get a bear can in it, it is a pack that requires light weight gear in order to fit as a big bulky sleeping bag would fill it up. Nice to put a helmet in the outside pocket and rooms for two water bottles in the side pockets. This is a dandy of a pack. The Osprey people know what they are doing.

The best..
hands down for me. I own the the 35 as well and is what I use for most of my technical routes. Their airspeed technology is 2nd to none and truly keeps your back dry, which is damn important skiing and ice climbing in the winter. Really works the load down around your hips where it needs to be. Very light weight, just examine how they work the tool straps. Save weight at every corner that does not affect performance. Crampons on lower exterior straps, helmet in elastic pocket, then tons of room for clothes, food and pro inside. The H2O deal is cool, you can put your bladder in the air speed void and make even more room. Actually serves as padding on long trips.

Sweet Pack
Very Comfortable for weekend use and not to big for day use depending how far out your going. I ve only had few a couple weeks but love it the three times I ve used it. Even with the hydration pack in there still plenty of room.

Very Versatile
This is a pack with a wide range of use. It can easily be packed for a few days, or pack light for a day hike using the compression straps to snug everything down. As far as comfort, this pack is tops! It just seems to become a part of me and except for whatever weight I put in it, I almost forget I have it on. It fits THAT good!
Great layout of storage pockets and the main compartment is very spacious. The lid pocket is nice for my camera and quick snacks. I haven't used a hydration pack with it yet, but I like that the hose can come out either side. Great job by Osprey!

like it
very much, big enough for spring bc skiing/climbing, carries well. My only complaint w/b that a large bear canister is hard to fit in due to the "curvy" design of the back so you have to store it upright which takes up more space. Also, the fabric is not super durable, I carried skis on the sides and the edges cut the fabric a bit - but that's my own stupidity.

Good medium sized pack
Really enjoy using this pack on winter climbing trips. Plenty of room for the essentials.
