    Comments about Osprey Aether 70 Backpack Men's, Midnight Blue:

    07/24/2016 I was surprised that this pack as so narrow that I could not fit my BearVault 500. It would not slide down to the bottom or the middle. Luckily the it could barely be squeezed into the top. My previous pack, Arcterryx Khamsin 62, was chosen to fit the bulky BearVault. My wife has an older Ariel 65, and the BearVault fits in easily. Apparently a re-design made all the packs narrower and TALLER. The two inches in increased frame height makes it impossible (even without a helmet) to look up merely with only a tip of the neck. I now have to lean the torso back. Does anybody find this trade-off height vs pack width a practical improvement?

      Comments about Osprey Aether 70 Backpack Men's, Midnight Blue:

      I've had this pack for a couple of years now and it's been fantastic. Everything from overnighters by myself, canoe trips and week long trips through the Rocky Mountains with my wife. Volume is great for when you need it but snugs down nice for shorter solo trips. The removable top is great for day trips from base camp. Comfort levels are through the roof. The straps are all really long which is a good thing. I trimmed and sewed to my sizing needs.

      I'm 6'2" 200 lbs and the large size works well for me.

        This is a really good bag. it is comfortable and big enough for things. It is a lot cheaper from Torpedo7 if you live in NZ.

          Comments about Osprey Aether 70 Backpack Men's, Midnight Blue:

          Pack is top notch. It is a large pack, and not for the UL crowd of gram weenies, but for being such a large pack it is light... I can easily pack for a week of trail breaking, and have room for extra's. I routinely carry around 30lbs in it, and it doesn't feel like it is there. I have carried 60+ pounds on a 9 day, and it carried like a dream. For the record, I am 6'3" and 220.
