Osprey Exos 58 L Backpack
The beauty of hiking is being able to reduce your world to what you can carry on your back. Osprey’s totally redesigned Exos—featuring state-of-the-art suspension, sewn-in seamless hip belts for superior comfort, and trick upgrades like a trekking pole attachment and sleeping pad straps—lets you overstuff for your adventure without overtaxing your shoulders and hips. The original was a masterpiece of ultralight pack design, and the update is even better. Ultra light and super supportive, this is the new cornerstone of all your fast and light missions. 2 lbs., 6 oz.
