Osprey’s NEW award winning Atmos AG & Aura AG
The new Atmos AG and female specific Aura AG are ground-breaking, award-winning packs that come equipped with Osprey’s unique AntiGravity™ (AG) back-system and the world’s first fully ventilated hipbelt.
Ideal for those going on longer, multi-day treks, in warmer climates, these packs have been designed with comfort as key, along with well thought out access points, weather protection (via the inbuilt rain cover) and superb ventilation.
The Atmos AG and Aura AG have seamless mesh across a 3D cavity on the backpanel, which provides wearers with a breathable and flexible contoured fit. The adjustable Biostretch™/ExoForm™ harness and Fit-on-the-Fly™ mesh hipbelt give great pack stability and reduce roll. They also feature InsideOut™ compression for heightened load balance. These combine to reduce fatigue and give users supreme comfort, even when carrying heavy loads.
Once on and adjusted the AntiGravity back system moulds itself across your back and around your hips - like it is hugging you. The more weight you put in the more it wants to grab in a secure, comfy way with even load distribution across the shoulders, back and hips.
The packs set a new standard with a host of innovative features including; Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachment, sleeping bag compartment and removable sleeping pad straps on the Atmos and Aura 65, inbuilt raincover and removable FlapJacket™ top cover.
The female specific Aura 65 has an angled hipbelt and narrow shoulder straps for better fit. Both the Atmos and Aura are available in 65L and 50L, giving you the opportunity to carry extra when you need it most.

NEW: Mammut’s GTX® Surround® Comfort Footwear
The brand-new GORE-TEX® SURROUND® technology is making sweaty feet a thing of the past! Mammut are one of the first brands to use this revolutionary technology – producing all-round breathable and waterproof footwear - Mammut Comfort High, and Low, GTX® Surround®.Footwear engineered with GORE-TEX® SURROUND™ product technology offer enduringwaterproof protection and breathability all around the foot. The shoes have 30% morebreathable surface than a regular waterproof shoe. In fact, moisture and warmth also escape throughthe GORE-TEX® membrane into the open structure of the “spacer” [a space between the insole and the wedge] – and from there out of the shoevia side ventilation outlets - active air holes support 360° ventilation, which helps to inhibit the build-up of perspiration in the shoe.
The Mammut Comfort High, and Low, GTX® Surround®, with board lasting and a unique tread pattern, are designed to ensure a safe step for mountaineers on their way to the summit. Thanks to the new Sonar-Comfort sole by gripexTM with Sonar technology, multi-directional lugs and two rubber hardnesses, the shoes provide secure grip on any terrain. Whatever weather conditions you encounter in the mountains, stable and reliable footwear is indispensable.
