Osprey Airspeed

Osprey Airspeed
Using peripheral suspension design this lightweight, three dimensional suspension eliminates foam and backpanel materials and replaces it with lightweight suspended mesh. Three dimensionally shaped to allow maximum airflow and optimal tension and load carry sets Osprey apart from other tensioned mesh backpacks.

Osprey Peripheral Frame

Osprey Peripheral Frame
Peripheral frame was a departure from the norm many years ago and it’s still the foundation of our gear hauling packs. A wire frame runs along the outside of the backpanel directly connecting the upper load lifters and the central core of the pack to the hipbelt to transition and spread the load. Allowing natural torsional movement, effective adjustable torsos, and different load range and backpanel builds makes this suspension design truly innovative.

OSPREY MEASUREMENT GUIDE

Please note that the info provided above refers to the torso size each pack will fit, and NOT any dimensions of the pack. Below are some steps for how to get your torso length. You should probably have someone help take this measurement for you so it is accurate. And they might accidentally touch your butt.

HOW TO MEASURE TORSO LENGTH:
• Start at the iliac crest, which is the top of the hipbones on the side of your body. These act like a shelf for supporting a pack hipbelt.
• From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down.
• Make sure you keep your back as straight as possible while measuring.
• This torso measurement determines what size Osprey pack you should carry. Refer to the size charts above to find your ideal size.
• If you are in between sizes, it is ideal to try them both on before ordering.

HOW TO MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE:
• Measure around your hips at your iliac crest, NOT your waist.
• A properly fitted hipbelt rides centered over the hipbones and needs to be very snug.
• The padded portion should wrap well around your hips, leaving a gap of 3 to 6 inches between the tips of the both hip pads when securely tightened.
• Refer to the Hipbelts size chart above to help determine your ideal Osprey pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from thru-hiked the PCT in '16. Loved this pack! my base weight was a little over 10 lbs and I used this pack (without the lid) for the northern half of a 2016 PCT thru-hike. I loved it. I was using the Exos 58 (a LOT of people used that pack happily the whole way), for the first half but other than the high Sierra, it had way more room than I needed. If I did it again, I'd take the 48 the whole way and maybe just use the lid during the high Sierra bear cannister section. A lot of people had holes develop in the mesh pockets, but if you're careful where you set it down, you'll be fine. I just washed the pack off and after 1,300 miles, it looks brand new. Definitely use a waterproof liner if you'll be in any rain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AT Thru-hike Took this pack on my AT Thru hike, like many other hikers. Almost half the hikers I met were carrying this pack, and for good reason. Light weight, easy to pack, quite comfortable with the trampoline back, even in hot humid weather. Could use more padding on the hip strap IMHO. Top zipper had a tendency to get stuck. Web mesh pockets couldn't stand up to Maines pine limbs that tore them up. True on the weight load, 35 lb comfortabley, and able to carry more with difficulty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Professional Use I am a professional guide and outdoor educator who works all over North and South America. This pack has traveled with me for two years now, racking up nearly 200 field days of use. Here are some of my thoughts. Comfort and Fit: The pack is very comfortable. I have the medium and it fits like great. I am 5'9" and about 180lbs. It rides well just above the hips and the hip belt is comfortable with no digging in. Durability: The pack has held up really well, with the one exception of the stretchy material on the pockets. It has worn through there in a few spots, but nothing that affects the function of the pack. Uses: While this is a "lightweight" backpack, I use it on regular 30 day wilderness trips as well as lightweight trips. If you keep the weight under 35lbs it carries like a dream, anything above that and it does get a bit uncomfortable. It isn't designed for heavy weights, so don't use it for them and you will love it. That being said, there were a few times where I loaded over 50lbs in it and it carried it. Not the most comfortable, but doable. What could be fixed: 1. The hook system for the top is nice, but the flap that covers the pack with the top off gets in the way with the top on. 2. The hip pockets could be a little further forward, which is an issue I have with most Osprey Packs. Would I buy it or recommend it? Yes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding In contrast to the above reviewers, my EXOS 40 is generally loaded well over 30 lb: my loads average 37 lb. The extra weight is due to water: in Australia we have few water sources, so it all must be carried. I've been very happy with the ability of this pack to carry th load: after 50 km or so I get a few black bruises, but this is probably more due to my body type (featherweight) than the bag. The problem is certainly far less noticeable than any other packs I've used. Great mesh pockets that don't get caught up on scrub, excellent harness, nice and light, subdued colour for avoiding attention: all very important things to me. I think I'll stick with Osprey from now on: they make good gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice pack, but fit may not be the best choice certain body types I bought this pack for my girlfriend as it was light weight while still having pretty good padding. Overall the features are great and the pack seemed really well constructed. She also really liked the blue color. Unfortunately, the shoulder straps sat a bit too far apart for her and the sternum strap would not tighten enough.,,,,Fit is VERY subjective, so take this with a grain of salt, but as always, I'd load down the pack and walk around a bit before heading off for it's first trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing I have used this bag several times with some long mile days, loading it down with more than 25 pounds and it has performed phenomenally. It's so comfortable with that weight and every feature is just how it needs to be. The hip belts and shoulder straps are enough support, and breathe so well. The Airspeed suspension breathes well too, better than anything I've seen/used. Side mesh pockets are large and easy to use (fit an entire 1L bottle easily). Trekking pole attachment is a great feature. The Flap Jacket is great, I love not needing a large lid when you don't need it. I got the black and it looks great in person. I wouldn't put much more than 30 pounds in this bag though, not sure the shoulder straps could be comfortable with that much weight. I never want to take it off, and I plan on getting the new Atmos for longer trips.Try it on at your local store to feel it and you won't want another bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack as long as you keep the weight to a minimum I purchased this pack about two months back mainly due to its intriguing design and the fact that it was a sub 2lb-er... I first took this pack out for an overnighter and it did great. I had about a 19 pound load and it performed great . For being so light the amount of features that this pack has is in some ways overwhelming (in a good way) I tried pushing it and took it out for three nights.... Big Mistake! It was winter and I completely overpacked and due to the shoulder straps having no foam my shoulders were completely thrashed by day 2. Only complaint would be that the built it hood flap becomes quite annoying unless you opt to remove the top pocket. Bottom line, this is a great pack if it's used as intended... Keep things light and this pack will perform like no other

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and well made The Osprey Exos 48 was delivered on a Wednesday and i used it that Friday through Sunday hiking the Appalachian Trail Maryland Section. The pack is super light and well made. The mesh ventilation barrier between you and the pack is one of the best features. Everyone else on the trail without an Osprey had soaked the back of their shirt. I am planning to get the Exos 58 during an upcoming sale. The larger capacity will allow me to pack more food and/or accommodate bulkier gear during Winter trips.
