Providing customized fit and heavy load-hauling capability for female backpackers, the Osprey Xena Women’s 85 pack is an ideal companion for multi-day and extended backpacking trips. Convenient access points, innovative features and 4700+ cubic inches of storage capacity result in a pack built for the backcountry.
Constantly striving to enhance comfort and performance, Osprey has equipped the Xena 85 pack with a ground-breaking suspension system. A peripheral LightWire HD aluminum frame works in tandem with a single aluminum support stay to transfer weight to your hips and maximize strength and stability. A mesh/foam back panel and dual density foam harness enhance carrying comfort and help to reduce heat build-up between your back and the pack itself. Further ensuring a proper fit, the revolutionary BioForm CM Women's hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt with a women's specific fit and split support wings. A sliding sternum strap and load-lifter straps allow you to fine-tune fit with on-the-go adjustments. Each of three available sizes of the Xena 85 offers torso adjustability. The X-Small accommodates torso lengths ranging from 14"-17", the Small accommodates torso lengths ranging from 16"-19" and the Medium is designed for torso lengths that exceed 19".
To guarantee that the Xena 85 fits like a glove, Osprey offers swappable Women's BioForm CM hipbelts and shoulder harnesses. The XS hipbelt fits waists less than 28", the S hipbelt fits waists ranging from 27"-31", the M hipbelt fits waists ranging from 30"-34" and the L hipbelt is designed for waists larger than 33". For most backpackers, the shoulder harness size should match the pack size, but for those with wider or narrower shoulders, additional sizes are available. The Xena 85's Women's BioForm harness is available in four sizes. Each size of the harness provides a vertical adjustability of 2"-3". NOTE: For most backpackers, the shoulder harness size should match the selected pack size, but for those with wider or narrower shoulders, choose one size up or down for the best fit.
The huge main packbag of the Xena 85 is designed to comfortably carry 40-70 pounds of gear! The packbag has full top access, but can also be reached via a zippered vertical access point on either side of the pack. A lower sleeping bag compartment has a wide zippered mouth for easy packing and unpacking. Twin vertical storage pockets on the face of the pack have weather-resistant zippers and aid in the organization of gear. A large front pocket utilizes welded stretch woven fabric to serve as a convenient storage spot for layers of clothing or other gear. Stretch woven side pockets are ideal for stashing water bottles, tent poles or other gear. Integrated hipbelt pockets provide a spot to keep essentials close at hand. Multiple compression straps enable you cinch down your pack to keep contents safely and securely in place. These same straps also serve as lash points for additional gear.
Other features found on the Xena 85 include integrated trekking pole loops and a top lid that is removable for use as a lumbar pack. Removable straps located in front of the sleeping bag compartment securely stow sleeping pads. An external sleeve tucked behind the back panel makes the Xena 85 hydration system (sold separately) compatible without eating into any internal capacity.
