Product Description Item No.   10210077

The Osprey Aether 70 Pack is a custom fit backpack for weekend adventures on your close-to-home trails to week-long trips with your best buddies. The Aether 70 comes with an IsoForm4CM™ hipbelt that will transfer the weight to your hips and an IsoForm4™ harness to keep everything stable and comfortable from camp to camp. The 70 liters of space allows a spot for everything, even that one item that you'll never take out of your pack (I find there is always something), but you'll definitely use the lower zippered sleeping bag compartment, so rest easy. The top lid is removable if you're looking to drop weight and turns into a lumbar pack for a side-trip to that oh-so-cool waterfall off the main trail. Slip your hydration reservoir into the external sleeve against the backpanel and embark on the trip of a lifetime.

Osprey Airscape

Osprey Airscape
Osprey's AirScape™ mesh covered ridge foam backpanels set a new standard in the industry. With its ability to keep the weight close, provide cushion, allow ventilation and add load carry is quite a list of needs from this unassuming backpanel. It successfully accomplished all of that in a way that allows it to be used in the large gear hauling packs and lightweight day hiking packs.

Osprey Custom Molding

Osprey Custom Molding
When the loads get heavy, a supportive and effective hipbelt can support that weight. Osprey custom heat molds their hipbelt to you, eliminating hotspots, chaffing and bruising. This combines the best of a stiff, load bearing hipbelt with the cushioned comfort you need most when trekking with all your gear.

Osprey Peripheral Frame

Osprey Peripheral Frame
Peripheral frame was a departure from the norm many years ago and it’s still the foundation of our gear hauling packs. A wire frame runs along the outside of the backpanel directly connecting the upper load lifters and the central core of the pack to the hipbelt to transition and spread the load. Allowing natural torsional movement, effective adjustable torsos, and different load range and backpanel builds makes this suspension design truly innovative.

Please note that the info provided above refers to the torso size each pack will fit, and NOT any dimensions of the pack. Below are some steps for how to get your torso length. You should probably have someone help take this measurement for you so it is accurate. And they might accidentally touch your butt.

• Start at the iliac crest, which is the top of the hipbones on the side of your body. These act like a shelf for supporting a pack hipbelt.
• From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down.
• Make sure you keep your back as straight as possible while measuring.
• This torso measurement determines what size Osprey pack you should carry. Refer to the size charts above to find your ideal size.
• If you are in between sizes, it is ideal to try them both on before ordering.

• Measure around your hips at your iliac crest, NOT your waist.
• A properly fitted hipbelt rides centered over the hipbones and needs to be very snug.
• The padded portion should wrap well around your hips, leaving a gap of 3 to 6 inches between the tips of the both hip pads when securely tightened.
• Refer to the Hipbelts size chart above to help determine your ideal Osprey pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great balance of features and comfort for a reasonable price. I have carried my Aether 70 now on handful of weekend trips and I must say I absolutely adore it. ,,,,The suspension on this pack is comfortable even over 50 lbs. I prefer the firmer hip belt to the more pillow like belt on the baltoro. And the heat molding available for the hip belt truly makes for a perfect fit. The plethora of straps and cinches provide for a well balanced and close fit. This allows for great flexibility in use from 2-3 day trips to longer treks where more space is provided. ,,,,The placement of the water bladder outside the main bag allows for filling of the bladder without having to unpack all you gear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design is tall and narrow. 07/24/2016 I was surprised that this pack as so narrow that I could not fit my BearVault 500. It would not slide down to the bottom or the middle. Luckily the it could barely be squeezed into the top. My previous pack, Arcterryx Khamsin 62, was chosen to fit the bulky BearVault. My wife has an older Ariel 65, and the BearVault fits in easily. Apparently a re-design made all the packs narrower and TALLER. The two inches in increased frame height makes it impossible (even without a helmet) to look up merely with only a tip of the neck. I now have to lean the torso back. Does anybody find this trade-off height vs pack width a practical improvement?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pack hauled my gear on multi-week trips and was amazing! I used this pack 2 years ago for philmont, where we backpacked for ~2 weeks in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range, this pack was amazing. My pack weighed around 45-50 lbs and the suspension held up great! I am very abusive towards my gear and its amazing at how well my pack looks. I think its cool how you can custom mold the hip belt towards your hip but I dont feel that it improves the comfort drastically. The pack gets really small too, which is a great feature, I have used it for day trips when i am needing to haul a bunch of gear. Overall I love my pack and osprey is a great company (I got the blue one, It looks sexy).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not For a Bottle Guy I used this pack for 3 months while volunteering for the forest service. My main complaint was that the bottle pockets on the side were sewn too small to accommodate a 32oz Nalgene. This was a big issue for me because I do not like using hydration pouches. I had to purchase 1/2 liter Nalgenes for them to fit in the pouches, but the pouches are angled in a way that they are unreachable while the pack is on. Overall, the suspension, compression, and fabrics of the pack are solid, but this water bottle issue was a deal breaker for me. Word has it that the echos of me MFing up and down the mountains of MT can still be heard if you listen hard enough. If you are a bottle guy like me, I would not recommend this pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Pack with lots of Features Ordered this pack to use traveling across Israel and a trek in Nepal. Solid construction that hasn't shown much wear from my trips so far. I also like the lifetime guarantee, though I hope to never use it. Pack is very comfortable on my 5'10'' / 170lbs frame. I especially like the convenience of all the pockets and zips, particularly the zip on the back that allows entry into the pack from the side instead of having to always dig down from the top. The top of the pack also disconnects as a small day bag which is also a nice feature. Overall, really pleased with this purchase and the red color is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pack, worth the price this is my third osprey pack, and let me tell you, these packs are built to make a 40 lb load feel like 20. First, the harness and hip belt are exceptionally padded and the hip belt pockets are very roomy and useful. The zippered lid pocket could be the most useful pocket of all though, it can support any of the gear needed for a trip. The straight jacket compression system is a key reason the pack carries so well. The sleeping bag compartment fits a light sleeping bag in compression sack.The interior of the pack is very spacious but i would recommend the aether 85 for extended trips. The sizing is a little complicated, but a good outdoors store can fit you just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack, Needs More Organizational Pockets I love almost everything about this pack. It has plenty of room, Trekking pole holsters, a hydration pouch sleeve, a detachable fanny pack, and the best suspension system I've ever had. That being said, my only complaint about this pack is there are not enough organizational pockets. There are essentially 3 main compartments, the top which is detachable, the middle main compartment, and the bottom compartment. There are no seperate organizational pockets in these compartments. However, I would definitely recommend this pack to a friend, just be ready to use stuff sacks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pack for all around use The Osprey Aether 70 has been like the friend I never had. Always there for me, providing me with cool refreshment (hydration pack), and making sure I have everything. I can't say enough good things about this pack. It is light, sturdy, and Osprey stands behind their products with a lifetime warranty.,,,,The only thing I would note to people is to ensure you correctly measure yourself for a pack. I'm 5'10 165lbs and the perfect pack for me was a small waiststrap and medium shoulder harness and pack. Make sure you measure correctly for optimal fit.
