osprey atmos 50 ag review

For those looking to upgrade from a basic backpack, the osprey atmos 50 ag review is an ideal choice. The pack is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and has excellent ventilation thanks to its unique Anti-Gravity suspension system.

It’s a great fit for a wide range of torso sizes, and its pre-curved hip belt is adjustable using Osprey’s Fit on the Fly system. It’s a great option for hikers who are tired of having to buy new packs because their old ones don’t fit properly.

Osprey is a leader in environmental efforts, and the Atmos AG LT is made with recycled and bluesign-approved nylon. It also includes PFC- and PFAS-free DWR coating, which helps to preserve water quality for the environment and workers.

The Atmos AG 50 is built for multiday backpacking trips, delivering comfort, versatility, and load capacity that will impress even the most demanding of hikers. It’s one of the most popular and successful models in the Osprey line, and has won multiple international awards.


It’s got a good number of storage options, from internal hydration pockets and stretch mesh side pockets to trekking pole attachments and dedicated sleeping bag storage. The Flap Jacket makes it fast to pack the Atmos AG 50 without the lid, while a lower external zipped up sleeping bag compartment and dual access stretchy mesh side pockets give you more room for gear.

We recommend this pack for weekend backpacking and lighter-weight multiday-overnight trips, but it’s not the best choice if you’re looking for a more rugged, expedition-style backpacking pack. Those looking to strap heavy sleeping pads, tents, or additional winter gear to the rear of their pack should look elsewhere.
