I would recommend everyone consider buying an Osprey pack. I've heard it said that you have an Osprey pack for life, and I've found this to be true. I had my original Osprey pack for at least 10yrs. It went everywhere - up mountains, on multi day treks, travelling overseas. Great pack, but it was getting a bit worn and the inner lining was peeling, so I reached out to Osprey. They had me ship the pack back to them, and then very quickly they called me and then shipped me a brand new updated pack! They were kind enough to also exchange my Aether for an Ariel - which fits me so much better as a woman! Thanks to Osprey. Exceptional service. I've taken my pack for it's first 3 day hike and it was perfect - very adjustable and comfortable. Next will be an international trip - I'm sure it will hold up great!
