Product Description Item No.   10041833

The Osprey Argon 70 Backpack is a full featured backcountry pack ready for adventure. This backpack is durable and well-constructed out of tough yet ultralight 40d Sil Nylon. Vertical zip access into the main body keeps your gear within easy reach and the easy-access side pocket keeps smaller items close at hand. Compression components prevents your load from shifting and maintains the bag's low profile. The top pocket converts into a portable, padded lumbar bag for smaller excursions. This bag also features removable sleeping bag straps. Post-lunch thoughts: Chinese takeout containers are magical things that make everything about ten times tastier the next day. Probably a proven fact.

OSPREY MEASUREMENT GUIDE

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.

HOW TO MEASURE TORSO LENGTH:
• 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.

HOW TO MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE:
• 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 Love this pack for weekend trips, extended trips, and alpine trips Pros,,* Love the water bladder features (nice and close to your back and can be taken out to be used on it own on your back),,* Love the airscape back panel,,* Love the hipbelt, is very cushy,,* Love all the extra pockets on the side and at the front for camera, GPS, trowel, trail mix etc,,* Plenty of options to strap on your walking poles or snow shoes,,* Have even used the feature of the top pocket to a lumbar back when at camp and doing a short walk up mountain or to waterfall.,,People complain that it has too many features, but would prefer to have the options than not at all as I have used most of the extra features. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top in overall quality Tons of room for everything you need/want. The super comfortable belt and back support make carrying this pack a breeze. Even if you only want to bring enough stuff to half fill this pack, there are several straps that help squish the contents to as tight as possible. All my friends tried it and are considering purchasing new packs because mine puts theirs to shame. It extra pockets and loops make it very functional for getting the small things you need at that very second. Overall, the best backpack I've ever purchased. And since osprey has a lifetime guarantee probably the last backpack i'll ever purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with all the features and warranty Truly a custom fit after the hip belt molding and stay bending. I took it on a "hard" uphill hike with 60 lbs in the bag just seein how it felt fully loaded, ended up going all the way up 6.5 miles cause it felt so great. With all the adjustment straps, you can really get this bag to stick to your back like glue. The sleeping bag compartment is big enough for me to cram my 3 part military sleeping system in, not many bags can manage that.,,If you read about all the features, and know about the "All mighty guarantee", then you know this is the best bag out there for medium/heavy loads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and comfortable Where to begin. The adaptation as a fanny pack or hydration pack is insanley useful. This pack handles a 45 pound load like a champ. The hip belt and airscape ventilation system are very comfortable. The multiple pockets allow easy storage of water bottles, suncreen, and other stuff. It is pretty light, but is very durable and can take a beating. Also, it comes in green. I like green. A lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack! So many features! The suspension system is super comfy, and the compartments are easy to access and work with. Used this for a number of winter expeditions - no problem handling the massive loads and piles of gear. Gotta love a product with a comprehensive no-questions warranty too :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my purchase! Great pack! I know it is a little heavier than the other Osprey packs, but it is very comfortable, which makes up for the extra weight. I just bought it a couple of weeks ago and used it in the panhandle of Florida for a three day hike/camp. No complaints.
