Internal frame backpacks now have model years, just like cars - there are incremental changes each year, and a makeover every 3-5 years. The popular Osprey Aether 60 was last updated in 2003. It gained some features and weight, to the chagrin of some backpackers who relished its light weight and simplicity. For a while the previous model was sought after because it was a few ounces lighter. The Aether 60 is updated again for 2006, and again it advances in features and weight. This review details how much weight the 2006 Aether 60 gains and whether the new features are worth it.
