The redesigned (2014) Osprey Exos backpack is an ultra-light backpack that provides good comfort and has numerous features for traveling light and fast on the trail.

Comfort/Fit
The Exos 58 provides good overall comfort for an ultra-light pack and performs well when carrying loads under 30 pounds. The padding on the Exos 58 is much better than the previous model and the pack still has the easy adjustment options and suspension system of previous models.

The Exos 58 hip belt has a wrap around fit and provides good padding. The Exoform hip belt is comfortable and very breathable. Two large zippered pockets on the hip belt provide good storage options.

SeattleBackpackersMagazine.com – Featuring Aura AG 65 – June 25, 2015

What you’ve been hearing is true. Osprey’s new Anti-Gravity suspension system on the Women’s Aura AG and the Men’s Atmos AG is changing the game. Haul big-loads all day, over big-miles with no pressure points, insane load stability and revolutionary ventilation: that’s what the Anti-Gravity system is all about. You won’t see a suspension system like this on any other pack in the market, and the benefits on the trail make this pack absolutely worth checking out.

The Anti-Gravity suspension works through a fully integrated non-stretch mesh harness that connects the back and lumbar support, shoulder straps and hip belt in one system. What that means is that the load from the pack weight transfers uniformly without creating pressure points or an unstable load distribution. The pack moves with you: it can’t not, because it’s connected to your shoulders, back and hips seamlessly.

Many people think that travelling with just carry-on luggage to cold climates is impossible. While it is trickier than packing for a beach holiday there’s no reason why you can’t pack light in the winter too. We’ve been living out of our carry-on sized backpacks for over five years now and can’t imagine travelling any other way. At the beginning of May we visited Finland (including a ski trip in Lapland) for ten days with just hand luggage and found it even easier than usual.

Here are some tips to help you pack light for winter travel, and you’ll find our carry-on only packing list for Finland below.

Luggage

You can read a detailed review of our carry-on backpacks here.

  • Tortuga backpack (Simon) – Lots of space and a good hip belt to take the weight of the shoulders.
  • Osprey Farpoint 40 backpack (Erin) – The perfect size for me with good support and plenty of space.
  • Combination locks – To lock the zips of our backpacks.
  • Cotton shoulder bag – We use this as a day bag. Simon packed it in his backpack on travel days.
