Osprey Packs Exos 48 Backpack
Osprey Packs - Sports
from $166.65

Pros

  • Lightweight/durable materials
  • Tough 6065 aluminum alloy peripheral frame
  • Breathes very easily

Cons

  • Top loader allows essential items to get easily buried
  • Shoulder strap material chafes arms and elbows

Our Take:

Osprey Packs Exos 48 Backpack is a great pack for those making the transition to ultralight backpacking.

Although this pack is a bit on the heavier side for a lightweight pack, it makes up for this weight with the 6065 aluminum alloy peripheral frame that helps the weight sit evenly on your back and helps to eliminate any muscle tightness or back soreness.

The Exos is also very breathable on your back so you won’t have to worry about a drenched shirt and smelly gear as you trek through warmer temps.

The material of the bag is very durable, so feel free to toss it around and not fear any serious bruising or tears.

The extra lower straps are also helpful to carry a sleeping pad or smaller tent.

This is a top loader bag so plan your packing accordingly, ie don’t bury the things you need more urgently where its hard to get to like food, flashlight, etc..

Osprey also has one of the best warranties in the biz, so no need to baby this thing around.

My only complaint is the external shoulder strap material often catches my arm when taking off and putting on causing some uncomfortable chafing.

This is a very easy workaround and doesn’t diminish the bag’s overall performance.
