User Review: Osprey Exos 46
Source: bought it new
Love this pack! For a week or for just a day this pack is great. Comfortable and durable.
- Easy to clean
- Just right amount of pockets
- Perfect for my gear — no dangles on the outside of pack.
- Mesh hip pockets absorb dirt and moisture.
I have been lightening and lessening the volume of my packed items and was ready for a lighter pack, but not completely ready for a frameless pack. I had always thought that when I was ready for a smaller/lighter pack, I would buy from a cottage company, but then I stumbled upon the Exos.
My pack weight with food, two lts of water, and gear for a week in CO this summer weighed 30 lbs — which is pushing the Exos out of the recommended comfort range — but the pack still carried comfortably. I was so surprised that my Bear Vault 500 fit INSIDE the pack!
I have the size small so it is really only 43lts. I often have the pack stuffed, yet after a years use I have not seen any seams stressing or mesh pulling from the frame, or breakage with buckles or straps. I love the confidence of knowing Osprey has a lifetime guarantee from any type of damage.
Just the right number of pockets to stay organized. Light enough and compresses down to use as a great day pack too.
