Description

Makes long treks on the trail more comfortable and easier.

The Osprey Women's Xena 70 Backpack handles large loads on extended trips and makes load-carrying comfort its top priority. A beefed-up version of the LightWire peripheral frame suspension creates the structure, while the women-specific BioForm CM hipbelt and harness provide a supportive and highly customizable fit during your week-long treks into America's scenic national parks.

  • LightWire peripheral frame effectively transfers load weight to the hip-belt
  • Reversed spacer-mesh back panel offers a smooth, breathable contact surface while a single 6061-T6 center stay maintains back panel shape
  • BioForm CM hipbelt balances firmness and cushioning for optimal carry while a BioForm harness with NeoSpacer fabric provides a comfortable fit
  • Women-specific pack design features a narrow pack shape with added depth in the right places
  • Women-specific shoulder harness consists of thoughtful angle changes and varying padding thickness to create an anatomical fit for a woman's neck, shoulders, and chest while a sternum strap equalizes the pressure across the shoulder harness
  • Women-specific hip-belt takes into account that a women's hips are more conically shaped with a larger difference between the waist and hip measurements, so you have more comfortable load transfer and optimal support
  • Xena 70 comfortably carries 55 pounds or a maximum weight of 70 pounds of your gear for a week-long trip in the backcountry or month-long trip backpacking in Australia
  • Top-loading for easy packing while curved side zips on each side of the pack provide wide, easy access to the main compartment
  • Wide-mouth access sleeping bag compartment with divider enables easy-access to your sleeping goods
  • Dual-compartment top pocket converts to a lumbar pack with built-in belt when you want to take short day hikes from camp
  • Strong, durable fabric and construction ensures a pack that lasts for years to come
  • External hydration sleeve in back panel simplifies refilling and protects pact contents from spills (hydration bladder not included)
  • Two roomy front pockets with coated zippers help keep often needed items handy while a stretch-mesh front pocket quickly stashes your extra gear
  • Zippered hip-belt pockets provide secure storage for your camera or phone while dual-access stretch mesh side pockets hold your water bottles
  • Removable sleeping pad straps, dual-side compression straps, two ice axe loops and handle wraps, and Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment for convenience

My first pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this as my first pack because it was on sale. I don't regret the purchase at all. I bought an XS (I am 5'3") and it fit well. I think my torso is 16". I recommend going to a store and getting sized before making a purchase if you don't know your torso size.

Anyways. I wore this for 2 days on my first backpacking trip and it was okay. The pack is nice and I like it but there is a hydration sleeve and my reservoir didn't fit well. There is a little clip to hold your reservoir in but I can't clip this unless the hydration sleeve is empty. Doesn't really matter though since the water is pretty difficult to get in and out of that sleeve. The clip is pretty useless. Other than that its good. I like the front pocket thing where I could throw my jacket and I liked the hip belt pockets since I could store my camera and trail map in there.

Love at first hike

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've had several different pack including a couple from the north face and the osprey aura. This pack is so much more comfortable! I'm petite, 5'2" and 117 lbs. The xs in this pack fits so well! The pack carries loads very comfortably and it has so many well thought out features. I've only used it on one trip so far, but I'm looking forward to many more years of happiness with this comfortable pack!

Pure comfort!

Last season I used the Osprey Aura backpack (size SM), although I really loved the features of the pack, the sizing was not right for me. I couldn't get the perfect fit and would come home from a trip with bruises and cuts on my hip from the Aura pack. This season I decided to upgrade to this Xena series (size XS), my decision was based on my love for Osprey and the women-specific hip-belt. And wow, I am impressed with this pack. The hipbelt is perfect, it's padded and really fits my hips much better. I have carried heavier loads this backpacking season and my hips are fine, the description says "load-carrying comfort its top priority" and I couldn't agree more! My two favorite features is the removable top, it has two nice sized pockets and coverts into a lumbar pack and I love the external hydration sleeve. I do suggest you grab the Osprey bladder with the rigid back for this pack, any other bladder would be very difficult to fit in the sleeve. Great breathability due to the mesh backing. This pack is very durable and I know it will last me many years to come, backed up by the Osprey lifetime warranty.

Pure comfort!

Load carry comfort up to 70lbs

The Xena knocks it out of the park for backpacking. The most comfortable trail pack out there made specifically for women. Manages loads extremely well, disperses/distributes weight with great compartments, fitted women's specific hip-belt (Huge bonus), and a mesh back panel that allows for great breathability. Ideal for weights up to 70lbs, enjoy comfort on the long haul with this beauty of a pack. For a bigger pack/more storage, check out my other favorite- The Ariel 75.
