Best Osprey Backpacks for Women – Only Bestsellers


Did you know that Osprey has been building women-specific packs for 25 years already? So here is our list with Amazon bestselling Osprey backpacks for women in various sizes.

What is women-specific design

Note that only top brands are building such women-specific backpacks. So there are not so many of them and they include Osprey, Gregory, Deuter, Mountainsmith, Kelty and just a few more. Osprey women’s backpacks are probably the most popular from all these brands because of such a variety of models and innovations they frequently introduce.

This term ‘women-specific’ may differ from one brand to another, though the design in all of them should include similar features introduced to fit a female body. In the case of Osprey this implies the following:

  • Narrower shoulder width. So the yoke is specifically proportioned to create an anatomical fit for a woman’s neck.
  • Ergonomically shaped shoulder harness, contoured to fit around the side of the body creating a more comfortable fit.
  • Shorter torso length. The purpose of this should be obvious, and the design also includes added depth in the right places to allow greater freedom of movement.
  • Specially designed hip belt with the profile that fits a female body shape. So they sculpt and angle the hip belt to better suit a female hip shape, and they make it narrower in height so that it doesn’t dig into the ribs.

These critical elements are marked in the picture which shows one of their famous AG (anti-gravity) backpacks:

Please see a bit more about all this in this short video by Osprey:

Apart from these specific features introduced for female users, Osprey packs come with plenty of other great features common for packs for men and for women. So in the larger packs you will find any of the following types of back-panels and suspension elements:

  • Anti-gravity (AG) which is a completely unique Osprey’s design without a match in this industry. Some models in the list below have such a design. They have this in Aether & Ariel, and Atmos & Aura packs, as well as in several other smaller packs.
  • Trampoline-style tensioned mesh with a great ventilation. This is typical for Exos & Eja and also for Rook & Renn packs.
  • AirScape system with mesh over a perforated or accordion-style foam. This is used in a variety of their packs, from the largest they have ever built to the smallest daypacks.
  • BioForm harness with a foam that molds due to your body heat for a perfect fit. This is again something specific for Osprey, they use this in Xena and Ariel packs for women and in Xenith and Aether packs for men.
  • Most of their packs are with adjustable torso size.
  • Osprey packs are usually built in various sizes within each nominal size. So when you see a 65 liters pack, this means that you can choose XS, S, or M version that are 62, 65, and 68 liters.
  • There is much more of course, you will see when you read the list below.

So here is our list with true Amazon bestsellers in various categories and departments on Amazon, best Osprey backpacks for women in various sizes and for various purposes. Some are for travel, and some for outdoor use. The list will be updated regularly and new models my appear dependent on what people are purchasing on Amazon.
