“The lightweight, body contouring suspension of the AG™ system allows the user to move as if they don't have a pack on,” said Mike Pfotenhauer, Founder of Osprey Packs. “Once we built AG™ into Atmos and Aura, it was fantastic to consider where else we could apply this innovative technology to improve our customer’s experience on the trail.”
