The Osprey Packs Exos 58 is a lightweight, multi-day backpack that’s excellent for long distance thru-hiking, weekend backpacking and other multi-sport trips. Weighing a mere 2 pounds 10 ounces in a size medium (torso length 18″-21″), the Exos 58 has a rigid but lightweight aluminum frame and a ventilated back panel that will keep you comfortable even when you need to haul extra gear and food. Loaded with capabilities and easy to customize, the Exos 58 is a very well thought out pack that can be used year-round for a wide variety of adventures.
The Osprey Exos 58 is very different from most other ultralight and lightweight backpacks since it’s configured with a floating top lid instead of a dry-bag style roll top. In addition to extra pocket storage (one pocket on top and one inside), the floating lid lets you sandwich extra gear between the lid and the top of the pack’s main compartment so you can carry extra technical equipment or supplies that won’t fit inside your pack. Top lids are a great feature, especially when you travel or hike and backpack in winter and want convenient access to hats, gloves, snacks, and navigation gear.
