The Osprey Xenith 88 Pack is a backcountry pack for longer trips into the wilderness. The Xenith is quite the behemoth at 88 liters, but the LightWireHD™ suspension, Airscape™ backpanel and BioForm4™ harness and hipbelt all work together to comfortably transfer the weight without breaking your back. When the trail calls you for a week or longer, the Xenith steps up with plenty of pockets, so you know exactly where all your gear is located so you can get to it quickly. Forget the big city and take only what you can carry on your back to get yourself into nature.

Osprey Custom Molding

Osprey Custom Molding
When the loads get heavy, a supportive and effective hipbelt can support that weight. Osprey custom heat molds their hipbelt to you, eliminating hotspots, chaffing and bruising. This combines the best of a stiff, load bearing hipbelt with the cushioned comfort you need most when trekking with all your gear.

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.

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.

• 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.

• 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 Gives you what you need. Dec 2014.....I have had this pack for a year and a half. ,,Buckles, first thing I did is call and request backup, no questions asked. The buckles are not that prone to breaking as others might say.,,The bottom of the bag is highly re-enforced and very durable.,,Sleeping bag compartment is large.,,There is a removable compartment divider between the sleeping bag and main compartment.,,There is plenty of storage, especially if you pack properly.,,I don't use the external bladder compartment. I use one of the mesh pockets on the either side of the pack.,,The hood, top of the pack, has two very nice pockets, thats where I keep my emergency gear and my snacks.,,The shoulder straps and the waist belt are great. Shoulder straps are easy to adjust.,,The waist belt wont loosen up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and easy to pack I use this pack for short and long backpacking trips. It's equally comfortable with a light load for a couple of days or with a heavy load for 7+ days. It's big enough that I can pack even more than I can carry. I like the variety of pockets and the external hydration sleeve. The only downside so far are some seams that are tearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable for the volume Moving for from Gregory this is my first Osprey pack and I love it so far. Lots of organization and feels light for what it can carry. It can be cinched up compact if you are not carrying a heavy load. The outside h20 pocket is worth getting this pack for. I have not had it long so time will tell if it holds up as well as my other Gregory bags. ,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack, plenty of pockets for organization. Just got this pack and took it on a four day trip. It worked great. Had several younger kids so I was stuck with pretty heavy load, over 60 pounds when water was full. Harness handled everything great. I could adjust it so pack was just off my back (to breath better) for the easy sections and tug on the load leveler would tighten everything up for the trickier sections. Hip belt took about a day and then it was perfect for me. I got a size medium and that was great for me, about 5' 8", 170 lbs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have come to expect more from Osprey. Not very durable. I have been an Osprey fan for almost 20 years. My older packs have held up well but this one did not follow that trend. On my first real outing with this pack (5 days in the back country/wilderness area of Joshua Tree) it suffered from a broken buckle, and rips to every mesh pocket on the pack. Also, when the 3 liter bladder is full and in the panel built for it, it bulges through the back panel. Other than that it was fine. Fit was good, weight distribution was fine, and there is plenty of room. But overall I am a bit bummed with the performance. I will say that when I called Osprey they were extremely responsive and offered to send me free buckles, and a repair kit for free. They also offered to repair the mesh pockets if I send it in to them. I just don't have the time to send it in right now. Next time, I thin think I will go with a no frills, slick pack.
