Great lightweight pack for overnights, or longer, if UL-savvy.


  • Lightweight
  • Sturdy
  • Details that matter—lightweight compression straps, stretch-fabric pockets, adequate small pockets on waist belt and shoulder straps, removable floating lid, pole carrier loops, and more


  • Light materials not super abrasion-resistant
  • Bag is too small to contain a bear can

I purchased the Exos 48 in 2015 and use it each year on summer overnight and somewhat longer trips where I can keep the load small and light. It weighs only 2.5 lbs with the lid attached. It's not designed to carry heavy loads, but what it does carry, it carries well.

With clean lines, the pack has many features I find handy; none are superfluous. I have heard complaints about Osprey having omitted the small pockets on the waist and shoulder straps in the latest versions of the Exos, unfortunately. Lightweight and removable compression straps, stretchy back and side pockets, hydration pocket in the main bag, and an adjustable/removable top pocket. 

It's held up well with use...

I have had the EXOS 58 (size Large at 60 liters) for the past 5 years and really like it. Yeah there are lighter UL packs out there but NONE are more comfortable (IMHO). I do like the new green color instead of my green stripes on black body. I cut off the inside extra lid and the hiking pole retainer loops as unnecessary and added side pockets as very necessary to sort gear that i may want quickly.

This pack is SO light! Feels great on the back and ventilated well.
