Osprey Atmos 35 Pack – An Osprey daypack.
If you are a fan of Osprey gear, and who isn’t? Then you should take a look at the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack. It has all the qualities you you know and love about Osprey gear, but in a smaller daypack size. This is no ordinary day pack though. Because of its unique design and quality craftsmanship, the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack isn’t just for day hikes. The Osprey Atmos 35 Pack is designed to be functional for a variety of outdoor uses such as ultra light hiking, adventure racking, and much more. So no mater what your outdoor activity of choice is, the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack can help you do it.
One of the major differences of the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack over their larger backpacks is that the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack uses a panel loading design more typical of a daypack. This panel loading design makes it a lot easier to back a bunch of gear into a smaller space. That’s not to say that the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack is a small pack though. It offers up just enough room to carry all of the day hiking essentials, but is small enough to make for a good adventure racing pack as well. This is a nice change from day backs that can be converted into larger packs.
As with any Osprey gear, the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack has a great suspension system. The Osprey Atmos 35 Pack actually uses a tension mesh panel stretched across the suspension on the back to help create airflow and a more comfortable back panel. In addition to this, the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack also a special hipbelt to help lighten your load and make it more comfortable. Unlike a typical hipbelt, the Osprey Atmos 35 Packs hip belt cinches down on the top and bottom of the strap. This design helps keep the hipbelt from biting your hip and makes for a more comfortable wear.

I haven’t had a chance to try out the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack, but I am sure its great, all the Osprey stuff is pretty top notch. I am a fan of the fact that it is small, but not as small as some hydration packs. And despite it being small, the Osprey Atmos 35 Pack still has plenty of room and offers up a lot of versatility.
