User Review: Osprey Exos 46
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $199
At 2#2oz. this is the pack to take day hiking or an extended backpack. Keep the weight under 30# and the weight transfer system makes it feel like it's not even there.
- Very durable
- Good weight transfer
- Plenty of pockets
Just finished an 80-mile trek with this pack at 26#. Myself dressed with commando shorts, tank top, trail running shoes and sunhat. I could practically run down the trail, and when I reached camp I sometimes went about other chores before taking the pack off because I wasn't worn out from it.
Only complaint is I would like water bottle holsters up front on the waist belt instead of those zipper pockets. Now in July of 2013 I keep trying to get my pack lighter and then some, so I get these ruck sacks with straps that weigh all of 9 ounces and I have managed to get every thing inside them except for my food. When I put it on and it is around 6-8 # the thing kills me. So I load it all back in my Osprey and go skipping down the trail never happier.
If I change packs now it will most likely be to the Exos 36 by Osprey. Just a slightly smaller version of this one. Can never say enough good things about this pack.
