Osprey Atmos 50

I decided to go ultra light for the summer time so I am selling this to fund a new pack. It's in excellent condition.I got it used a month ago, seller used it on one overnight and I only used it on a winter day trip into avalanche lake. It's a large, red, has mesh backpanel etc.. I can email pics on request. Asking $90 shipped.

Hold that though Hawk, haven't received the funds yet so if it falls through I will let you know. I have the kestral 68 I use for winter and it's still a little heavy for my liking but I am still doing trail and error with my winter equipment so hopefully next season I will get it down. Still no where near the weight of when I first started backpacking. For summer I am thinking of going with a ULA or even the Exos because I really like the way the Atmos carried and they have the same suspension. So we'll see. But you would be proud if you saw how far I have come since our trip on the NPT!

I also own the 50 and used it for two years in the high peaks for day hikes. Except for winter outings it was to big. I bought the Osprey Stratos 36 and really like it's size for summer use but miss the style of compartments that the 50 offered. Still rate it A+ though.

Yea, it's not that it isn't a great pack because it is. I am just going ultra light. If I go even with the Exos it's a full pound lighter, if I go with a ULA depending which one it could be even lighter so that's the only reason for the sale. If only everyone could have seen me two years ago with my 50# coleman pack filled to the brim with crap that I wouldn't use if I hiked across the states 20 times. Every outing is a new learning experience and I expect to be learning until I can't physically do it anymore.

I'm sorry I missed it too - been looking for one of these.

One observation I have made, and perhaps the reason I love the Ospreys - Because of their engineering, they distribute the load much better are more comfortable then packs weighing less. So in the long haul I can hike farther with less fatigue then with a pack that is lighter.

I know of at least nine people who agree with you!

The genius of the Osprey design is that it is really an external frame pack which looks and feels like an internal. Thus it has the form fitting comfort of an internal with the load bearing and ventilation characteristics of the external. The best of both worlds. Pure genius!

I'm up for it whenever you get the time. Thankfully I have traded the tent out for a hammock and don't read on the trail unless the hike in is short, and even then it's a light paperback. It's all a learning experience, thankfully I learned A LOT on that one trip. Russ has been a great mentor along the way too.

The FLT or somewhere in the adks. There are a few "distance loops" I have mapped out, I'd like to do.

I'm up for wherever. FLT or Adirondacks. Though the loops you were telling me about last weekend sound interesting. I would like to give one of them a shot.
