We have set the bar for technical backpacking packs by combining Anti-Gravity™ technology with customizable fit and innovative features like our new convertible top lid to create a more capable and comfortable pack for long-haul load carrying on any multi-day excursion. When you need a pack that can carry heavy loads for up to a week, there is no better option than the Ariel AG™ 55 pack.

I have the older model

I ordered the Ariel 55 way back in 2009 and since then it's been deep into wilderness areas, stuffed into the overhead compartment on my way to foreign countries, and lugged around with teaching supplies for my environmental education jobs. It's a fantastic pack!! I just recently sent it into Osprey to have one of the metal frame pieces replaced, and they also patched two holes on the side pockets! Now my pack is ready to jump into another busy summer outside! I have broken the waist buckle several times, but that's an easy fix. The pack itself is also a smidgen too tall for my body, but that's my fault. Everything is easily adjustable, I love the pockets and straps, I've strapped all sorts of stuff to the outside of this pack!

I Love my Ariel 55

I got my Ariel in sand. It was my first backpacking bag and I haven't found a more comfortable style yet. There is plenty of room for storing gear and the convertible top daypack has been my savior on scrambles during longer trips. I've taken it on two day trips and 5 days and it serves perfectly for both. I would definitely buy this bag again.
