Description

Weighing in at a mere 2.05 pounds when stripped down to the bare bones, the Osprey Exos 58 is made for minimalists. Everything about this pack is light and fast starting with the mesh Airspeed™ Suspension that stabilizes the load and simultaneously provides maximum airflow for high-output ventilation. An ExoForm™ 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 Flapjacket™ remains to protect your gear if the weather turns nasty.

Mesh side pockets with InsideOut™ 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 Pacific Crest or the Appalachian Trail, pick up the Exos 58.

Comments about Osprey EXOS 58:

Took the pack out for the first time on a 2 day 20 mile hike at Grayson Highlands/Mt Rogers VA. With food, eater and gear I had the pack weighing in at just under 30lbs. I don't think it could comfortably go much further than that. The pack performed wonderfully. Super cooling on the back area. My other packs have never done it as well as this one. I have now become an osprey convert. -Thank you

Comments about Osprey EXOS 58:

I bought this pack to replace an older model (the EXOS 58 Ember Orange) that had worn out. This was an awesome pack that I had used on many backpacks, including the John Muir Trail. The new model is also comfortable, light weight and sturdy. However, I only gave it 4 stars because I miss the two side zippered pockets which were great for stashing items that you wanted to get to quickly, like rain gear or hat and gloves.

Comments about Osprey EXOS 58:

An amazing pack with so much going for it minus padding. Everything about this pack is top notch besides that. Best side pocket design I've used, they should definitely modify the atmos packs in this department. I could've done without the internal flap to shave weight rather than removing the usable lid with double zip storage which I find very usable. Hip belt pockets are perfect size and stay out of the way of swinging arms. Back mesh pocket is something I really like in a pack, and the Exos super stretch mesh works out great. The back panel is the most comfortable I've felt, and I've owned a dozen packs. Super breathable and supportive. Comparable comfort to those mesh backed computer chairs.
So the two complaints I have are lack of padding, and the narrow lower frame structure. Basically the mesh is the padding and that is it. I actually sewed padding on both hip belt and shoulder straps. The mesh was a little abrasive too. Second issue was the width of the bottom of the frame. I'm thin, and even then, the frame corners on the bottom pushed into my upper buttocks enough to make them sore. After a week on the trail, the frame issue went away, but with loads over 30lbs, the lack of padding left my hips and shoulders sore.
A surprise to me was that it could carry a BV500 horizontally inside behind my shoulders which seems to ride best while hiking for me. Nice to be able to access food without having to unpack any other gear. It did rub through the hydration sleeve due to the material being sandwiched between the frame and canister, but that was avoided later with placement of my trash compactor bag liner.

All in all, an amazing UL pack. Just wish it had better padding.

Comments about Osprey EXOS 58:

I purchased this pack for hiking the PCT. The overall design and minimal weight makes it the best "big brand" pack available. The side stretch pockets are great for hydration, upright or facing forward. These pockets can carry 4 one liter bottles conveniently. The back stretch pocket is great for maps, trowel, TP, or other quick grab items that don't fit in hip or pant pockets. The main compartment is roomy and the silver (or green if you have a green/black) strips provide passage of some ambient light. The many tightening adjustments allow for tightening the load securely, with minimal weight. The top removable flap pocket is nice, but excess weight for any UL conscious person. The interior pocket for a water bladder is a nice touch, given the demand for water bladders, and might protect the pack contents from a bladder break - but I wouldn't count on it. It's the one thing that could be eliminated to save a little more weight if Osprey wanted to convert this a little more UL.
The hip pockets are a little smaller than some, sufficient for a small camera, a bottle of sanitizer, lip balm, lighter, or a short granola bar. The lack of bulk prevents them from bouncing, so there is a little trade off for small hip pockets. I have a 31" waist and with a medium sized pack I could "almost" pull the waist straps as tight as they would go without discomfort. So there is excess strap left over when tightening for an average trim build (I'm 5'9" 155 lbs with a 31" waist).
The chest straps both have a pocket most convenient for a bar snack as long as it's skinny like a candy bar, or most granola bars (they held my MetRx protein bars great). They wouldn't be good for a wide bar such as Cliff.
There is a handy quick access strap set up for holding hiking poles. While not necessary, it does come in quite handy from time to time. They are also great for keeping your poles with your pack so you don't loose them (like I did once).
Load lifter are adequate, small and light weight.

      Comments about Osprey EXOS 58:

      I first bought an Osprey Aether 60 in 2004. I used this pack regularly for 10 years before it started showing some wear.
      In 2014 I saw the EXOS 58 and loved the idea of a 2 lb 10 oz full featured pack. I tried it out and the first thing that I noticed was the great fit. The next thing I noticed was how well this pack ventilates the back. I think this is the best feature of the EXOS series. The first trip I carried 35 lbs to test its max capabilities. Normally I would carry this much on a 5 day hike. The packs suspension held up well under this load, but for me this is the maximum I would carry using this model. The thin straps throughout the pack are adequate while decreasing the weight. The shoulder straps and hip belt at first glance appear to have minimal padding. In use the padding is quite comfortable, and the open cell structure of the foam ventilates at the shoulder and hip contact points quite well.
      After two seasons of use, the straps on the hip belt, shoulder harness, side load supports, and bottom pad strap are all functioning well with no slippage.
      I did tear out a guide loop at the bottom of the pack where it appears this loop was not sewn in completely. I found this to have no effect on how well the pack performs though.
      The hood I feel is a bit too large for the pack. I believe if you filled this hood completely, you may end up with a awkward set up where it would crowd your head. By keeping the hood cinched down and not filled too high, I find I have plenty of head room.
      I appreciate that the hydration pocket is accessible without removing gear, and that I have a hydration port on each side.
      The hip belt pockets are sized perfectly for an energy bar on one side and my GPS on the other. Each shoulder strap also has a pocket.
      Lastly, compared to my Aether 60, The EXOS is not built nearly as robustly, however it is quite adequate for the backpacker who wont be doing a lot of bush wacking and scrambling.

        Comments about Osprey EXOS 58:

        They should call this the helium pack. It is that light, yet is 58 liters! I've had one of these for about 2 years and the pack still looks/functions as new. I worried when I first got it that some of the light components may break, but they haven't. I like this pack so much that I just ordered another one for my son. I use this pack on extended summer hikes when I carry my lighter gear. In the snow I still use my larger Osprey Argon 110.

        I have used this pack for about 3 years now for about 35 days of adventuring total. It has done well as a airplane carry-on, is light enough to be a day pack, and is an amazing hiking pack. It has handled all that Maine can dish out with very minimal wear.
