Comments about OSPREY Aether 85 Backpack:

Used for Extensive trips in wilderness areas of 14 plus days in US Rockies mountains, BC,Yukon and Alaska. Lightweight well built that can take the punishment of tough conditions. The fit is fantastic once fitted properly. The pack can be cinched down to smaller loads with built in top side straps - Awesome. Love the external water reservoir pouch as it does not take up room inside. There is one set of webbing loop on the top of the pack but could use more lashing or webbing to attach other items as needed on the pack body.
