Osprey Exos packs have become a standard on the Appalachain Trail and among ultralight enthusiasts. The 48-liter Exos 48 Pack is a perfect size for superlight backpacking and thru-hiking.

Updated materials and hardware create a lighter pack than the previous version; the lid, key straps and attachment points are all removable
Superlight Airspeed(TM) suspension features a 6065 aluminum frame and breathable 3D tensioned-mesh back panel with side ventilation
ExoForm(TM) shoulder straps include a stretch-mesh energy gel pocket and a 15mm adjustable slide sternum strap with a built-in whistle
ExoForm hipbelt features an ergonomic, forward-pull cinch closure that lets you get just the right fit; seamless layered mesh provides comfort and cushioning
Removable floating lid includes top and under-lid zippered pockets for stashing trail essentials within easy reach
FlapJacket(TM) lid deploys to provide main compartment protection from the elements and top-down compression to keep the pack load stable
Hydration-compatible design places the reservoir (sold separately) in a cavity behind the back panel for easy refilling
Ultralight, 7mm webbing compression straps on the sides take up extra volume with minimal added weight; route the straps over or under the side pockets
Sleeping-pad straps and a single tool attachment with bungee tie-off let you strap extra gear to the outside of the pack
Front and side stretch woven pockets provide handy spots for stuffing a rain jacket or water bottle; zippered hipbelt pockets give you a place to stash energy food
The Osprey Exos 48 Pack is made with 100-denier nylon and ripstop nylon for ultralight durability

Weight 2.3 lbs for medium
Capacity 48 Lit

Incredible deal if you fit a medium or large. I just got fitted for this pack at REI yesterday and found out that unfortunately I need a small, which surprised me. I guess I have a short torso (I'm a 17). I called Mel Cotton's to see if by chance they had it in a small and they do not. If anyone knows of a similar deal from a supplier that carries it in a small I would love to hear about it.

Great find! I have the 58 liter version and love it. Btw, you can price match to several other stores like Moosejaw and get 10% back in rewards and up to 10% back in cash from certain Cashback sites. In my experience, those 10‰ back were based on original purchase price, so it was more like 15-20% back for each. If you have shoprunner, you get 2 day shipping as well.

I received my backpack today. Looks good and is indeed much lighter than my old and ailing Osprey.

Anyone know of any good deals on bladders? I assume that we don't have to use Osprey ones. The Osprey Hydraulic LT ones in particular get less than stellar reviews.
