Levity 60L Backpack
On some trips every gram matters, but that doesn't mean your back should be aching with every step you take, take, for example, the Osprey Levity 60 Backpack. With a lofty main compartment to host up to 60-liters or thirty pounds of gear, you can pack in all of your essentials for an ultra-light weekend getaway, and escape to the trails less traveled. Its main body is crafted from lightweight Cordura Silnylon ripstop that holds up to branches when you're bushwhacking through an overgrown trail, and packs in compression to keep your bag stable when you're scrambling up near vertical pitches.
To ensure comfort while you hike, the pack is centered on a Lightwire suspension frame that takes the weight off of your shoulders and places it on the Exoform hip belt for comfortable and even weight distribution. The Exoform harness and hipbelt both cont our to your body with seamless layered mesh to keep you feeling good from the first to last mile, and a Super-ultralight airspeed back panel keeps cool air moving towards your back to keep you cool. Assorted drop in pockets give you places to stash water bottles and layers, so you can snag your rain jacket quickly if a storm breaks out.

Does the job.
This is a very simple pack for backpackers that want a low base weight. This pack carriers weight up 30 lbs very well, anything over 30 lbs not so much. The packs outer Cordura fabric is very durable but the Nanofly is not so you do have to be careful when leaning the pack up against stuff such as trees to make sure you don't puncture the fabric. If you do plan on carrying over thirty pounds the Mesh back-panel will wear out much quicker then intended due to the extra weight. My biggest complaint about the pack is the out side stuff pocket, It isnt stretchy at all so when you have a fully loaded pack its hard to get things in and out of it. The solution to this is pack the outside pocket before you completely fill the main compartment. My other complaint is the fact that the pack is white, and after a 1000 miles of backpacking its not that white anymore. I feel that they should have chosen a different color as it does not stay clean. One of my favorite things about this pack is the water bottle pockets, the way they're slanted it makes to super easy to drink on the go with one hand. Another thing I love is the weight, at under 2 lbs this pack is super light. If your looking at purchasing this pack you do want to consider your base weight as well as how much food and water weigh. My base weight for the PCT in the desert was around 15 lbs but once I added food and water for 5+ days it was around the 30-40 lbs mark. But once I got into the high sierra my base weight jumped to 25 lbs with extra cold weather gear and add the weight of food and water was sitting around 50-60 lbs, Which the pack held but not as comfortable as packs that are designed to hold that much. If your looking for a pack that'll hold those kinds of weights I highly suggest the Osprey Aether Pro. It carrier those weights super well and has a ton of sweet features. Its also the pack that I switched to after continuing to carry loads over 30 lbs. Over all this pack is awesome for what it was designed for and is great for those looking to lighten your base weight. I will continue to use this on summer backpacking trips where the objective is to move fast and light. Picture: Running down Pinchot Pass Photo credit: @Wasatch_Weirdo

Should be called the Levitate
The Levity is a really nice progression from the Exos, which I have been carrying for years and up until now have never found a pack that balanced weight, support and features as well. This thing is astonishingly light while still carrying 30 lb loads in comfort, even the harness - no sore shoulders or hip bones. There are a few minor sacrifices such as ultralight fabrics (I will be repairing some red rock abrasions from a 20 foot rope lower) no removable lid and no hip belt pockets but these are relatively minor. My favorite thing about the pack besides the weight is the 3 huge stuff pockets that swallow gear, 1 center and 2 side/ bottle. For the thru hiker of minimalist the Levity must be considered.

Just bought this pack and I am hesitantly optimistic. Weighted it with all of my gear and gave it a test run, really digging the way it sits on the back, it feels so different from other packs, the springiness in the back panel and the air flow are going to be really nice on long trips. This pack also weighs next to nothing which is a huge plus of course. The one thing I am concerned about is the way the pack moves packed weight away from your body to create the airflow system. I am worried that because of the distance from the body, the body will have to work a little harder to keep the weight supported. The best situation is to have the heaviest, most dense part of the pack closest to your body, so its not tugging on your body from the far end of the pack. so far i have been able to avoid this by packing correctly, so no big issue as of yet. Im looking forward to giving this bag a long trek, I am a big osprey fan coming from the talon 44, hopefully this pack will work for my multi week and burlier trips to come.

Tim, I hear your concern, but your back will sink partway in to the back panel, so it's not as far as you think. It is this back panel that actually does the work and carries the load so well. You will be stoked! Thank you!! Leta Osprey Rep
