Sizing info

Exos 48

Speed of light. Exos 48 represents the latest in a significant heritage of ventilated and lightweight backpacking packs. Combining optimum comfort and stability with durable, superlight materials, Exos 48 is the ideal pack for moving fast on multi-day adventures.

The Exos 48 offers all the benefits of a lightweight pack but without the normal compromises, helping you to move fast and light.

Our revolutionary ExoForm™ harness and hipbelt uses a dual mesh construction to deliver a comfortable and stable fit that puts a traditional harness design to shame.

The ventilated AirSpeed™ backpanel will keep you cool when the weather turns hot, but still delivers a stable load-carrying platform.

If you want to really hit minimal weight, remove the lid to expose the integrated FlapJacket™, which provides additional protection to the top of the pack.

Keeping your contents tight and under control is even easier with the adjustable multi-point compression system on each pack sides.

Every element of the Exos 48 has been laboured over to keep weight low, yet retain the best performance possible.

All these features and benefits at only a shade over 1 kg… We should be accused of witchcraft.

Key Features

  • AirSpeed™ ventilated trampoline suspended mesh backpanel
  • ExoForm™ mesh hipbelt and harness
  • FlapJacket™ top cover for use without lid
  • 7mm side compression straps
  • Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachment
  • Cord tie off points

Trois mois de randonnée
J'ai parcouru à pied Bordeaux par Saint Jacques de Compostelle, puis Fátima et Lisbonne avec un sac Osprey 48, et par tous les temps.
Remarquable de confort, de tenue et très pratique. Il est en plus dans le gabarit aérien de bagage à main. Attache pour bâton de marche Stow-on-the-Go fut très utile pour le port et le rangement d'un parapluie, toujours à disposition. Le volume est largement suffisant pour ce type de voyage. Les poches latérales en maille extensible très adaptées au port de ravitaillement liquide et solide.

Excellent product
Used this for a 4 day Alpine hike (60km long, 6km up/down) with overnight stays in cabane. Worked like a charm. Lightweight but sturdy enough. Has good pocket selection.

Très bon sac
Je suis très satisfait de ce sac avec lequel j'ai déjà fait deux treks de 4 et 6 jours.
Il est confortable tout en étant léger, c'est exactement ce qui me convient.
Bonne stabilité et le dos ne transpire pas garce au filet.
J'ai mis 4 étoiles, car le sac fait un bruit de grincement lorsque je marche.
J'aurais aimé une ouverture au milieu du sac, pour un accès au contenu plus pratique.

ottimo zaino per escursioni, iperleggero e multifunzione!
Questo zaino molto leggero ha dimostrato ottime prestazioni durante un'escursione di tre giorni con sacco a pelo in alta montagna. Maneggevole e iperleggero, consente uno scarico del peso ottimale sia in salita sia in discesa. Grazie alle sue tasche elastiche, lo zaino dispone di una capacità interna notevole.
Lo consiglio a tutti!

Très bon sac a dos
bonne ergonomie ; un peu compliqué a régler a l'achat ! il faut plusieurs sorties pour y arriver ! Taille grand je mesure 1m78 j'ai acheté un taille L ! impossible de le régler sur les épaules ; j'ai été obligé d'installer 2 mousses sous les bretelles pour arriver a la caler définitivement ! j'ai parcouru le GR20 Corse avec ; le volume a été convenable avec tente ; duvet ; matelas et nourriture ! Le seul gros défaut a été le manque de solidité du tissus qui s'est retrouvé avec des accrocs a plusieurs endroits ! (on peu pas tout avoir légèreté et solidité) un petit détail ; il y a un petit mousqueton pour mettre les clés de la voiture c'est génial plus besoin de chercher les clés de partout

Exos 48
Had this bag for 4 weeks and it has quickly become my favourite bit of kit.
I have used it on two walks one fast day walk in which I used a camelback and found the open front pockets very useful for quick food access. The fit and comfort is superb and it functions well as a day back when compressed down.

My next walk was the 55mile ten tors challenge which is a two day event on Dartmoor and requires a substantial amount of kit to be carried fast across the moor. The bag was flawless in all aspects for this, the low weight and convenient pocket were great and despite carrying around 14Kg for many hours of walking my shoulders and hips had non of the bruising and redness that I'm used to with my old bag. Of course I can't assess the durability yet however the feel of it is good and I expect it will last over many years of heavy use.

All in all a fantastic bag that everyone will be jealous of because it looks and performs so good, I'm not sure I think of a reason to buy any other bag, so long as you can fit everything in this bag, buy it now

front pocket
I love my exos rucksack, it needed the extra padding on the hip belt and shoulder straps(as I had the previous version). But I can't believe you ditched the front pocket. The front pocket was a secure and really useful for accessing kit when on the go without having to go into the main sack. The stretch pocket doesn't cut it.

Great Rucksack. Exactly what I was looking for!
Very impressed! Well made and lightweight. There's plenty of space for my lighter gear but if I fancy a more comfortable trip there's still enough space to switch up a few things such as sleeping bag and tent. Very comfortable bag to wear. Easy to adjust to your own size and shape.

Two things I would include 1) A set of clasps on the inside of the floating lid for the fixed lid to clip into and keep out of the way. 2) A rain cover - although I understand why it wouldn't have been included, I feel most people would be happy for this to be included.

Good lightweight rucksack
Great size for hiking all week and carrying clothes and stuff from refuge to refuge on the tour mont blanc ....found it correct size. It is a unisex rucksack as none of the femail rucksacks were in stock...I did find it rubbed a little on the hips even though I was measured for a s/m and the straps at front rubbed on my collarbones so had some uncomfortable spots. As I was on a tour managed to see a lot of rucksacks and they were mainly osprey and everyone seemed to love them....but this size was Definately the biggest size you should take as carrying for nine hours a day is though. Would like to
try another rucksack but can't afford two, but maybe this will be more comfortable with use

Fantastisk ryggsäck
Det kändes nästan lite jobbigt att inse att mina gamla ryggsäckar väger minst det dubbla och inte alls når upp i samma bärkomfort som denna. Det har onekligen hänt en hel del sedan jag sist köpte en ryggsäck (säkert 15-20 år sedan). Fantastiskt bekväma remmar för både axlar och höft, bra ventilation även under remmarna och i ryggen. Verkar välsydd och med många fina detaljer och moderna starka lättviktsmaterial. Lite tveksamt kanske om man får med sig tält och annat som behövs för mer avancerade turer i denna 48-literssäck, men för dagsturer med familjen och till stugturer är denna perfekt, liksom på resor när pendlarsäcken inte räcker till riktigt.

il confort assoluto in uno zaino
Si indossa e si regola perfettamente, è ultra leggero ma tecnicissimo a livello di struttura. Ha un grande spazio interno e molte tasche utili per suddividere il bagaglio anche per 6-7 giorni di cammino, quelle esterne grandi e piccole ti permettono di avere tutto a portata di mano durante il cammino. Nessun mal di schiena o di spalle anche dopo ore ed ore

Lightweight but lacking comfort
I like minimalistic backpacks to save on weight. The Exos has everything you need and offers good balance at a low weight. I have a Small and find the padding a bit short, it just covers the collarbones. Extending the padding or even increasing it wouldn't add much weight, yet increases the comfort level a lot more. Same goes for the hipbelt, it could be a bit longer with more padding. Maybe it's because I'm skinny and I know I need decent padding but finding a lightweight backpack with the padding of my Xenith seems impossible. One thing I never like are pockets where things can fall out easily, like the sidepockets that have a side opening, can't put small things in there. It's almost the perfect backpack, good ventilation in hot weather, it can carry more than you think, lightweight but to me it lacks padding. I would buy a Exos again if they make a High Comfort one, but for now I have to find a more comfortable lightweight pack.

Used 3 months in a row in different weatherconditions. from 16-3 till 17-6 in europe
This Bag has been mine friend for 91 days, while walking to Rome on the via francegina. It had enough space for all the clothings and all the other stuff. With 2 20l watertightbags it was quickly stuffed. Very easy to bear during the walks, the hipbelt is very good and very quick to adjust. The comfort of the shoulderstraps is very good. The stiffnees of the frame is also very good, in the mountains it was very close on the back; while in the heat 35 degrees it was ventilating the back! Very comfortable bag!! And everything is looking still very good, only the straps are white of the salt of the sweat!
