The women's Osprey Xena 70 pack offers plenty of comfort for carrying a lot of gear on multiday trips. Its beefed up frame and deluxe suspension provide a supportive and highly customizable fit.


Osprey designed the Women's Xena 70 Backpack to haul heavy loads down long trails, and as the smaller of the two Xenas (Xena 85 being the larger), this option is more practical for weekenders or minimalist expeditions. To help you haul heavy loads, the Xena employs a rigid LightWire peripheral frame wrapped in an Airscape back panel with mesh-covered foam sandwiched between for support, ventilation, and cushy comfort. Essentially heat-molded foam, the BioForm harness boasts comfort at the shoulders and hips, and you can replace the hip belt for something less beefy for trips where you won't be hauling mountaineering gear around the alpine.
