Exos 48

from Osprey Packs

  • $190.00

When the trail is long and ounces count, reach for the Osprey Exos 48. Made with the ultralight thru-hikers in mind, everything about this pack is light and fast. The mesh Airspeedâ„¢ Suspension stabilizes the load and simultaneously provides maximum airflow for high-output ventilation. The ExoFormâ„¢ hipbelt and shoulder harness combine for all-day carrying comfort.

Osprey designers built this pack from light but durable 100D High Tenacity nylon and added superlight YKK zippers. Along with featherweight materials, the top lid is removable, as are all external straps to shave a few more ounces. The integrated Flapjacketâ„¢ remains to protect your gear if the weather turns nasty.

Mesh side pockets with InsideOutâ„¢ compression combine storage and stability. The front stretch mesh pocket gives you quick access to a map or an extra layer. Two zippered hipbelt pockets keep snacks and essentials secure.

The pack includes an ice axe attachment loop just in case you’re in the mood to blitzkrieg an alpine adventure. External cord tie-off points give you the option to lash on additional gear.

If you dream of thru-hiking the Continental Divide or the Colorado Trail, the Exos 48 is the tool for the job.
