I ran an Aether 70 our last couple years of backpacking before we had a baby. I put several hundred miles on it, and frankly I feel like the amount of wear it stacked up during that time is out of proportion to the mileage.
It's got some abraded nylon and a delta strap that is halfway broken. One of these days I'll get around to sending the hip belt back to Osprey, but in the meantime I've just been running a HPG belt.
I also prefer the Umlindi/Ute/Qui-Ya "one big sack storage system. I keep all my stuff organized with dry-bags so that works for me.
We're back to doing low mileage, two and three day trips, so I'm still using the Aether 70, but either in 2020 or 2021, I'll buy either a Ute or a Qui-Ya.
