I have this pack, and I love it. It is not super light, so I do not typically use it for summertime camping, but it has tons of room, and is incredibly comfortable. I have used it with loads as heavy as 45 and 50 lb, and been very comfortable. I can't recommend this bag enough for trips that require extra gear.

What are you carrying in it? A hippopotamus?

But seriously we don't see external frame packs on here much. They aren't as popular.

Light is right.

nice, this a good price for it? I know Osprey's aren't cheap but well regarded and you get what you pay for. Was looking for a 50-65L pack for backpack camping to replace a really old external frame pack, and thinking this may well be the ticket. Is this about as low as it goes without waiting forever? Any cons?

This is as low as it goes for anything non-generic. You can buy a lot of generic bags from wish.com and places like that, and they are decent and for a much lower price. The thing you get with osprey is comfort, stability, balance, and a good warranty. If you are someone who backpacks a lot, or plans to, this is well worth it. If you are doing a one-off trip to see if you want to get back into it, I would recommend buying something cheaper or borrowing a bag.

The only cons I have for this bag are that they're a lot of extra straps and things like that that aren't necessarily needed, but once you've used it a few times, you can cut off whatever you think is excess. Happy camping!

According to camelcamelcamel. This is pretty much the lowest price. You might be able to find the older version for slightly cheaper. Biggest difference is the extra rain cover that comes with the new version and the logos been much more subtle on the newer version.

thank you all - I think I will get this pack. I know Osprey is well regarded, and looking for a comfortable, durable, adjustable pack that will last awhile, know Osprey is well regarded. Was looking at Osprey's and a Redwing 50L, but figure 60L might be more ideal if ever doing 3+ day solo trips. Seems like this is a good price for a quality/not cheap pack, and i'm looking to take a trip within the next month, so the timing is pretty ideal, I see a few other quality looking packs around or above this price point, but this might just be the ticket. Thanks.

i was also looking at the aether AG. but ultimately decide against it because of the weight. Aether AG is 5+lb vs volt is closer to 4. Also, they are suppose to have a new version of the aether coming out soon, thus the sale everywhere

definitely understand that - weight isn't a huge concern of mine and I've heard good things on reviews about the "AG" feature, so was thinking that one may be more comfortable. In the smaller lightweight range, there was also this which seemed intriguing. https://drop.com/buy/drop-granite-gear-crown-x60

Welp, bought both aether and volt to try out. The aether has a zip off pack which is nice for summiting if you're camping or want to walk around the city with your other stuff at your hotel. The 3 lbs extra is a real kicker though.

The plan is to trek the Rocky's for a few weeks and I'd rather something that distributes weight better.

I guess if you are packing out an animal it's worth it. I carry a 60L internal frame with 40lbs easily. Distribution is all in how you pack it.

Which after a day or two of long distance hiking, it becomes evident what the best way to carry is.
