Osprey Aura AG 65

For hot summer hikes when you're carrying a ton of gear, the Osprey Atmos (men's) and Aura (women's) packs are tried-and-true BACKPACKER favorites. We gave them an Editors’ Choice Award in 2015 for their innovative (at the time) mesh backpanel, which holds the load off your back to allow airflow while still keeping the pack stable as you walk. "You can especially feel the difference in the desert, like on the southern Pacific Crest Trail or Arizona Trail,” says tester and thru-hiker Liz "Snorkel" Thomas. Both packs are just $202.50 (down from $270) at through July 4th.
