Providing customized fit and heavy load-hauling capability, the Osprey Xenith 75 is ideal for long-weekends or multi-day backpacking trips. Convenient access points, innovative features and 4500+ cubic inches of storage capacity result in a pack built for the backcountry.
Constantly striving to enhance comfort and performance, Osprey has equipped the Xenith 75 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 backpanel 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 hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt with 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 Xenith 75 offers torso adjustability. The Medium accommodates torso lengths ranging from 18"-20.5", the Large accommodates torso lengths ranging from 20"-22.5" and the XLarge is designed for torso lengths that exceed 22".
To guarantee that the Xenith 75 fits like a glove, Osprey offers swappable BioForm CM hipbelts and shoulder harnesses. The S hipbelt fits waists ranging from 27"-31", the M hipbelt fits waists ranging from 30"-34", the L hipbelt fits waists ranging from 33"-37" and the XL hipbelt is designed for waists larger than 36". 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 Xenith 75's BioForm CM 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 main packbag of the Xenith 75 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 Xenith 75 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 backpanel makes the Xenith 75 hydration system (sold separately) compatible without eating into any internal capacity.

Real Customer Reviews
- Most comfortable pack I have ever used!
Likes: I truly enjoy the comfort that this pack brings. I have used the pack twice so far since my order and I have yet to see a problem. The quality from Osprey is top notch as I always expect from them.
Dislikes: I could see the pack being a little hot with the foam padding during the summer time even though it is comfortable. The weight of the pack can also be an issue, but I don't mind extra weight for extra comfort in the backcountry.
- Mostly great bag
Likes: This is an impressive bag by Osprey that feels very comfortable on the hips, back and shoulders when hiking. It has a sturdy nylon lift strap. The waist pouches are sizable, and one of them is more water resistant than the other. The detachable top pouch is a nice benefit, and is sized very nicely. Stow-and-go hiking pole holders are invaluable for places like the West Coast Trail where you are frequently climbing ladders and need a place to quickly stow your poles. The sleeping bag compartment is separated from the main pouch by a adjustable and removable nylon sheet, so you can customize the area depending on the size of sleeping bag you are bringing. There is great attention to detail with things like the top lid buckles having loops to hold the buckles in place when not connected to the lid. The discreet carry handle above the elastic pouch is very handy, and when used in conjunction with the main lift strap, it allows you to easily move the bag when it is fully loaded. The adjustable torso setting is fantastic for dialing in a customized fit, and there are generic markings so you can reset it to a known position if someone borrows your pack. The temperature-moldable hip belt is a plus, but I found it to already be very comfortable straight out of the box. The main storage area has no problem swallowing a bear canister (unlike the slightly smaller Osprey Atmos AG 65 which has a significantly curved back panel). I've tried many other bag brands and Osprey consistently offers a better fit. Their lifetime warranty can't be beat either.
Dislikes: When stowing Smartwater bottles in the side entry water bottle holders of the pack, they rub against my sides when hiking (and I have a lanky build). Because of this, the bag would be much more comfortable if it were just one inch wider like the Atmos 65 AG. I also own that bag and don't have the same problem with it. A workaround would be to use a hydration bladder, however those weigh more. The side zips for accessing the main storage area are of limited use removing large items due to the curvature of the aluminum frame. The elastic storage pouch is not as wide as on the Atmos 65 AG. The top pouch needs to be loosened on the head side and tightened on the far side to not be so close to your head. The default placement of the pouch can be a benefit in some ways as it keeps the weight closer to your body, but the tradeoff is your head might bump against it when looking up. The waist strap belts are way too long, but bundling them with a couple of rubber bands easily solves that.
- all you need
Likes: Room for everything. If you think you need it, then bring it. With this pack you have room and then some. Very Comfortable and handles the weight like it's not even there.
- a plenty of the pocket
Likes: When I bought this hikebag, I wanna put my stuff a lot. That's why I chose this bag which have a plenty of the pocket and easy to access into the stuff.
Dislikes: Size of bag didn't match my back
Likes: low weight.
nice design/color (can use it in a city and in the forest)
I choose d between Gregory Baltoro 75 , Lundhags v8, and Osprey.
The hipbelt were great on the Osprey.
Dislikes: It has all the features I want including multiple pockets, easy access to the inside and good useability. But, I just couldn't get it to fit well.
