Focused on ounce-shaving construction, but delivering far greater carrying capability than most packs in its weight class, the innovative Osprey Exos 58 offers streamlined performance for fast-and-light thru-hikes and weekend trips. Despite weighing less than 3 pounds even in its largest size, the pack comfortably hauls up to 40 pounds!
An ultra-lightweight 6065 aluminum frame combines with a 3D tensioned breathable mesh back panel to equip the Exos 58 with support and ventilation in Osprey's Airspeed Suspension system. Seamless layered mesh on the Exoform shoulder harness and hipbelt provides comfortable padding at minimal weight. Further enhancing fit, the hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt. A height-adjustable slide sternum strap and load-lifter straps allow you to make on-the-go fine-tuning.
Accommodating users of different body dimensions, the Exos 58 is available in three sizes: Small fits torsos ranging from 16"-19" in length, Medium fits torsos ranging from 18"-21" and the Large size fits torsos that are between 20" and 23" in length. The storage capacity varies based on size, as well: Small is 3356 cubic inches, Medium is 3539 cubic inches and the Large provides 3722 cubic inches of storage.
The top-loading packbag is accessed through a removable, floating lid with top and under-lid zippered pockets. Stretch mesh pockets on the front and sides of the Exos 58 offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. A small dedicated stretch pocket on the Exos 58's shoulder strap is perfect for snacks, energy gels or electronics. Larger zippered pockets on the hipbelt offer quick and easy access to other gear and trail essentials. Removable 7mm side compression straps aid in load transfer and allow you to cinch contents safely in place, but you can leave them at home if they’re not needed on a particular trip. Other features found on the Exos 58 include an ice tool attachment loop, cord tie-off points and integrated, removable straps for lashing a sleeping pad. The integrated FlapJacket protects the main packbag from the elements when you’re using the Exos 58 without the lid and offers top-down compression for stability. The Exos 58 is also compatible with hydration systems (not included).

Real Customer Reviews
- The best
Likes: These packs are amazing. I tried my friends on last year, when I was overpacked and near death, and had to get one for my wife and myself. 2.5 pounds and very comfortable well into the 30+ range. There is nothing else like it that I know of.
Dislikes: This pack will take a beating off trail. The mesh pocket especially can get torn up by thorns, etc. The colors could be a bit livelier. I would like to see a removable hip belt that can turn the removable lid into a day pack.
- Great for Gateway pack for Ultralight-hiking
Likes: I bought this back pack as an upgrade to my son's 38l version of this same pack. He loves this particular model and I have found that I might retire my aether 60l of 6 years for this lightweight pack.
Weight is a giant factor for anyone buying this pack and at 2 and a half pounds you can't beat many other fully framed packs for the price.
The airspeed mesh suspension is very comfortable on hot days and is very innovative.
Remove able straps, webbing and lid with added flap Jacket weight savines.
The webbing at the bottom converts the pack into a 48l pack. Which is damned cool in my opinion.
Overall a great design!
Dislikes: The straps attached to the hip belt seem very thin but aside from that nothing really. It's a stellar pack and my son loves it.
- Great pack. Lightweight and cool.
Likes: Easy to pack and lightweight backpack for taking into the backcountry. Back stayed cool with the good ventilation built into the frame. Highly recommend this pack for ounce counters.
Dislikes: No side access into the pack.
