Osprey Exos 48 Backpack

 

The Exos Series has become a standard with ultralight enthusiasts and long distance hikers not willing to sacrifice comfort.  The Exos 48 was named Backpacker Magazine Editors” Choice award winner for best all-around pack. Our comfortable suspension, torso-specific sizing, and ergonomic design all contribute to bridge the gap between comfort, fit and light weight.  The Spring 2014 redesign benefits from Osprey’s never-ending search for the latest technology in materials and hardware as well as innovative design.  The comfort and support of the harness and hipbelt are drastically improved.  Updated materials and hardware provide a lighter weight pack, and the lid, key straps and attachment points are all removable.
