    Shave ounces without losing out on comfort and stability.

    Putting shoulder straps and a belt on a silnylon sack might be super lightweight, but without real suspension, it's hard to haul when your load breaks the 20-pound barrier. Osprey created the Exos 34 Backpack with a lightweight yet sturdy aluminum frame so the Exos can transfer slightly larger loads than other minimalist packs. A breathable foam back panel and mesh hip-belt help circulate air to improve evaporative cooling.

    Great pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I took this on a few weekend hikes in the Whites, as well as a few other over nighters during the summer of 2015. After using an older pack for many years, I was blown away by the light weight and air frame of this pack. The airframe doesn't really stop you from getting all sweaty, but it is very comfortable and helps cool you down to a degree. The hip belt and other adjustable pieces make for a comfortable, sweet fit. I bought an Osprey bladder (3 liter I think?) and it fits and works great with the pack. My one quibble is the sizing of this thing. I got the large after measuring my torso as instructed by the sizing chart on the Osprey website. The large is just a tad too big, which can lead to very annoying chafing spots over the course of a four day march. I should have gone to an EMS or REI to try one on before purchasing.

    Hey there - you are right, the frame cant stop you from sweating (hard to do!), but it can dry you off quickly. Yes, sizing is non adjustable, because adjustable sizing adds weight. And in this pack, we wanted to strip everything that added weight. It's important to not think about your height when considering size. It has to do with how long your torso is, so sometimes tall flks have long legs and short torsos, so trying it on is the best way to go.

    Glad you like your Exos!

    Great ultralight option for multi-days

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was suprised at just how much you can cram into this little guy. Still had plenty of room after packing in a fairly large sleeping bag, clothes and layers for several days, full cookset, fuel, food and toiletries. Didn't even get close to hitting capacity. Easy to load, comfy to wear, all the technical and adjustment features of the full-size Ospreys without the bulk and weight. LOVE the new hip belt adjustment system. Much more intuitive, easy to use and adjust on the fly.

    Awesome Use of Materials & Super Design

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It's difficult to decide which ultralight bag to pick ... A very personal-preferences decision for sure, however, Osprey Exos makes that choice a little easier with it's versatile design, quality materials and nice light-weight frame and ventilation system. Super comfortable and stable when wearing, plus greater durability than others in this category. Makes a great daypack and helps you make the right choices in equipment to keep your base-weight down on overnight treks. Can't go wrong with this one!

    Has any of the Osprey testers used this pack on 100+ miler ultras or used it on the John Muir Trail? Considering this pack to run the JMT.
