Since its introduction in 2008, the Exos Series has become a standard on the Appalachian Trail and with ultralight enthusiasts not willing to sacrifice comfort. Our AirSpeed suspension, torso-specific sizing and ergonomic design all contribute to bridge the gap between comfort, fit and light weight. The Spring 2014 redesign benefits from Osprey's never-ending search for the latest technology in materials and hardware as well as innovative design. The comfort and support of the harness and hip belt are drastically improved. Updated materials and hardware provide a lighter weight pack and the lid, key straps and attachment points are all removable.

The pack itself is super simple, one main compartment, two mesh pockets on the sides, a external top pocket with two compartments, and compression straps all around. In addition it has a tool strap, Osprey's Stow-on-the-go system for trekking poles, and straps on the bottom for a sleeping pad. The straps for the sleeping pad were actually too short for my sleeping pad, so I emailed Osprey asking if they had some aftermarket ones I could purchase. Instead they sent me replacement straps, free of charge without me asking for it. Definitely a company that stands by its products. The suspension system is also comfortable, up to a point. This pack is designed for <30lb loads and is most comfortable at 25lbs or below. Any heavier than that and its going to be pretty uncomfortable.
- Build Quality is excellent
- Super Lightweight
- Contrasting Inner colors for easy visibility into the pack
- Mesh back allows ventilation so your back doesn't get as sweaty
- Osprey's Almighty Guarantee
- Gret internal and External Compression System
- Hydration bladder hook and compartment
- Pack becomes uncomfortable with loads >25lbs
- Amazon's processing of the pack can lead to damaged frame
- Lack of organization (this is just me being nitpicky, this pack never claims to have lots of pockets)
- Hydration bladder compartment is not separate from rest of pack, so if it bursts it can soak your things
All in all this is an epic pack, and Osprey as a company is about as good as it gets. If you have a lightweight setup I would say go with this pack, no reason not to. If you're above 25-30lbs or planning on an adventure thats going to last more than 2-3 days, I would say look for something in Osprey's lineup a little bigger/with better suspension like the Aether 70 or packs like that.
The materials are surprisingly waterproof and I usually only use a pack cover in downpours. Just like any other exterior mesh pouches, these can snag on branches, etc. But I don't have any large tears after several snags and I've noticed the mesh is tighter and smoother than a lot of other mesh so it tends to snag less and does not get brittle with sun or time like some others. For the larger mesh pouches, people often recommend keeping your tent fly/tarps or rain coat in there to let them dry out, and you don't really have to worry about those getting wet. I recommend using ooksaks (waterproof, scentproof, durable ziplock style bags) if you need to store stuff on the outside. Good for hauling out your waste or carrying just about anything, and they work great for hanging food (inside another bag) if you aren't using cans. I am used to exterior mesh pouches on other packs and I appreciate the versatility of stuffing things in there.
I would like the hip belt pouches to be made of the pack material instead of mesh (it is strange, the tops of the pouches are mesh while the bottoms are nylon), as I tend to want to store my phone or a point-and-shoot there, and this part is not being covered by a raincover, so whatever goes in there gets wet unless you are clever with your rain jacket (also too small for an ooksak). They are big enough for an iphone (or larger), but make sure you have a waterproof case. In dry weather, I actually stuff my iPhone 4S in the shoulder strap pouch, where it fits snugly, but larger phones will not. This is a convenient storage location and a good place to keep headphones or a Clif Bar--again, exposed to the elements in any situation.
The lid is surprisingly large, but the zipper is somewhat annoying-it only goes about 75% of the width of the lid, so things that you would naturally think would fit in there often need to be turned and fussed with quite a bit to get in and out. I like to keep my first aid and toiletries in the lid in an ooksak and it is hard to get a large bag (one that comfortably fills the lid) in and out of this opening due to the small zipper. The mesh pouch under the lid is great for storing wallet and keys and I usually keep electronics in there.
The best feature of the pack by far is the ride- very comfortable, vented, rubbery shoulder straps and a hip belt with sewn ends that loop to make good handles for cinching it tight. The hipbelt stays snug and rarely loosens, like my old granite gear did every few miles. I have had no chafing or rubbing of the belt's straps on the pack, and the air system is amazing for releasing sweat on hot days- no more wet shoulders or back (a little at the hips). Great suspension and frame considering the lightweight materials. Trekking pole holder on the left side is awesome if you want to free up your hands for grabbing food or other items so you don't have to stop.
I like the hydration bladder compartment (it's not as cool as the external one on the Osprey Volt 75, which I think is a contender with this one, especially for growing young people or sharing with different sized people). There are several good options for attaching your hydration hose to the shoulder strap if you don't like to use a clip.
Despite some desired improvements, I would buy this again, and buy one for a friend, especially because it could improve their comfort level significantly if they can cut to 30 pound loads. You can get away with 35+ but you feel the limits of the shoulder straps if you have to keep heavy items up high. I think that Osprey is listening to and responding to customer feedback and they are really on to something here. You will not regret this purchase.
