Osprey designed their Aether Plus 85 for backpackers looking for a comfortable and well organized option to provide support for heavy loads and long days. Osprey designed it with a LightWire frame to stabilize loads on technical terrain, and with an AirScape™ back panel to help wick sweat and improve comfort.

Key Features:

  • Sustainable Materials – Osprey used bluesign®-approved 210D Nylon with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish to maximize durability while still being kind to the environment.
  • Removable Lid – The lid can be taken off and used as a daypack for side excursions along the way, or left at home when the space isnt needed. The pack also has a FlapJacket to cover the top when the lid isnt attached.
  • Stow-on-the-Go™ – This trekking pole stow system provides a convenient spot to stash poles when hands are needed, or on steeper terrain.
  • Fit-on-the-Fly™ – The hipbelt and shoulder straps are designed to be highly adjustable to customize the fit, maximizing both carrying efficiency and comfort.

Comparing the Aether 85 and 100 Plus

Originally posted at www.osprey.com on Jun 16, 2023
I purchased both the Aether Plus 85L and 100L for multiday/week treks after years of reliance on an outdated and heavy but reliable Lowe Alpine pack. Many places I have travelled mandate a bear barrel for food storage. Being able to store this horizontal at the bottom of the bag is a real plus, since it helps distribute the weight well. Additionally, this leaves the remainder of the pack above for the rest of the gear. I have the BV500 which can store about a week's worth of food for me. The Aether Plus 85 lower compartment is just a tiny bit too small to allow the BV500 to be inserted horizontally, and to place it at the bottom vertically would require removal of the compartment partition and leave the food weight off balance to one side. The Aether Plus 100, however, easily accommodates the BV500 horizontally and leaves a bit of room around it if necessary for soft goods. The pack weight difference of about half a pound (0.46 lbs) isn't a deal breaker, but room for the bear barrel is. Next stop Wrangell-St.Elias.

I cannot begin to state how happy I am with this pack. It is literally perfect in nearly every way. This even has a breakaway day pack so you can travel to a ravine on a long loop hike or 'Out and Back', making camp on the stealth and going on your adventure without all the weight!! Super rugged, well thought out pack!

Came to the site again (with previous good experience from other departments) in need of a tent and footprint-- Elizabeth was great with recommendations and offering more options that stayed within the budget but weren't on the radar to begin with. That and helping with other recommendations generally for hiking/camping, she is greatly appreciated!
