Great brand. I didn't love the fit of my Atmos, as it rubbed my hips in a weird way. So I switched to Granite Gear for backpacking packs and have loved that brand. Still love my Osprey Raptor that I use for summer dayhikes though.
No experience with those packs. I do have experience with the warranty. My granddaughter broke a strap on her Aura after several years of use. We were at Mesa Verde N.P. and took the pack to Osprey Headquarters in Cortez. They kept the old pack and sent my granddaughter a new one.
I’m an Osprey fan forever!
My Aether is 11 years old now, still super comfy and looks to go on for a long time more. I love the way it carries weight. My Talon 33 is only 5 years old and just a super pack for smaller loads. If they fit you and your body type, they fit like a custom pack, for me at least. They have repaired girlfriend’s Stratos no charge and free shipping back. She carries a small Kestral now and really likes it.
I have a small Osprey daypack a friend gave me. I think it has to be at least 10 years old, and I throw it around and drop it in creeks and stomp it every so often and let the dogs chew on it just to be sure it looks like the rest of my gear, but it never stops looking new. SO disappointing.
I've had an Atmos 65 for about 8 years now and love it. However, I went to replace it with a newer model earlier this spring and do not like the new AG suspension at all! The hip belt does not fit around my hips/waist comfortably (maybe it works fine for skinnier people, but not for me). I was disappointed in this change and and am now going to stick with my old Atmos 65 (as long as it doesn't fall apart) until I can find something that I like better.
I have been using an Aether 70 for about 9 to 10 years. Bought another a couple years back with the improved waist belt. I use the old one for Jeep/UTV camping where they suffer a bit of abrasion on occasion.
No complaints other than they are not the lightest. I've been temped to cut a bunch of stuff off that never gets used. I also have a couple of their smaller day packs which have been really great.
