Osprey Packs Exos 58 Backpack
If you're obsessed with shaving ounces during backpacking, trekking and adventure travel excursions, you'll appreciate the lightweight and supportive Osprey Exos 58 Backpack. It features a newly updated Exos peripheral frame that combines 6061-T6 aluminum alloy with LightWire cross struts for enhanced load support. Oprey stretched a 3D tensioned mesh backpanel across the Exo 58's lightweight frame, so hikers and backpackers enjoy improved pack-to-body contact and excellent backpanel ventilation. At the top of the Exos 58 is a removable floating pocket with an internal key clip and under-lid mesh pocket. If you need faster access to energy bars or gels, you can slip small hiking and backpacking essentials into the sewn-in harness pocket, zippered mesh hipbelt pockets or dual side mesh pockets. As a top-loading backpack, the lightweight profile of the Exos 58 is excellent for fast-paced extended day hikes and weekend backpacking excursions.

Reviews - Osprey Packs Exos 58 Backpack
This pack is made for those who love packs and love them light. It has every detail you can imagine for an ultralight hiker. First, the frame. This frame is not only lightweight, it feels incredibly strong. While the pack itself doesn't want you getting above 40lbs, I'm betting this frame will hold more in a pinch (though I'm not going to test that). The details, from the way the straps are positioned to give perfect access on the go, the loops on the shoulder straps perfect for your hyrdration tube, a gps/compas or even a phone and the straps made specifically for carrying your poles are done with absolute precision. I've owned a lot of packs, but this is my first Osprey and I'm a believer. I wish I had found them long ago. This pack is definitely for pack enthusiasts and is the lightest, most well thought out and comfortable pack I have ever owned. I cannot speak for durability as I do not have many miles on it but from reputation, other reviews and the little use I have had out of it I would be willing to bet it is durable for an ultralight. I'm surprised it's so inexpensive.
My favorite pack
I purchased this pack to use on a 2 day backpack trip since I needed a lightweight pack. I had breast cancer surgery several years ago and am not supposed to carry anything too heavy or binding. The pack was a bit smaller than my last but unbelievably light. It has a lot of nice features (though I found the hip pockets a bit far back) and is light and airy- you don't get sweaty back since there is a mesh back support. I actually prefer this to my BD pack that I use as a long day pack and have used it on several occasions for that purpose- it cinches down quite compactly. It also is more durable than I expected- though after 4 backpacking trips some of the mesh pockets are a little frayed. I am 5'3" and bought the small- it's a perfect fit. I would highly recommend this pack to anyone needing a light pack!
Light pack, plenty of room
I love this pack. It is big enough for long backpacking trips but light enough for small ones. It has more storage compartments than other light packs. I like separating my gear so I know one compartment is for med supplies, another for snacks and so one. Great bag.
