This is literally the best backpack I have ever owned. First hike I took it on was awesome and it was so comfortable. Tons of air flow to your back and really let's you breath. I won't buy any other pack but an osprey pack from now on.
"Excellent pack: comfortable and practical. These days I only buy Osprey."
I bought this pack for light-weight hiking between accommodation night-stops. It's super-light, crammed with the usual practical Osprey features, very durable, and comfortably carries a load of under 15kg. If I were carrying a load of 15-20kg or so, I'd be reaching for my Osprey Ariel 75 women's pack. DEFINITELY closely follow the weight-carrying specifications provided by Osprey. I love how the Osprey camera pouch attaches so conveniently. Great pack. These days I never look further than Osprey.
This pack is not only extremely cool but really light wieght. I currently purchased the Large verson of the Exos 58 pack and being a skinny 6'2 male it fits incredibly well. Not only does the pack distrubte the weight well throughout my waist it stays tight and close to my center of gravity dispite the large size. It has plenty of pockets and places to store essiental gear, with the ease of axcess. A friend of mine with a different Ospey pack and is still finding pockets and has had it for years. It is also a stong pack and Osprey always gaurntees their product with life time repair or replacement. Great company to buy from!
"Ignore the bad reviews regarding durability."
I've got 20 hiking days/200 miles on this pack in the Sierra's this season and the pack has held up very well. It's not as durable as some other packs, but it weighs between 1 and 2 POUNDS less than a similar-sized pack and everything is a trade-off. There isn't another 58 out there that is more durable and weighs just 2 1/2 pounds. If it tears who cares... Osprey warranties these things FOREVER and they will fix or replace it free. I generally hike with about 25-30 lbs and have had as much as 45 lbs in it without any problem. The buckle only popps open if you are too stupid to realize that it has an orientation and buckels one-way.

I've got 20 hiking days/200 miles on this pack in the Sierra's this season and the pack has held up very well. It's not as durable as some other packs, but it weighs between 1.5 and 3 POUNDS less than a similar-sized pack and everything is a trade-off.

"This is a great pack! Less than 3#s and everything fits"
I've just upgraded to lightweight gear, and I'm sold on this pack. The fit is great (love that it still has a frame), and all of my gear fits (including dog food/vet kit for 3 large dogs for an overnight) with a bit to spare. It's just a size up from the Exos 46, and I think that this will also allow for the extra gear required for some winter skijoring trips into FS cabins. The only thing that I've not quite figured out how to manage is where to put a water bottle for easy access--the side pockets are snug to the pack (so maybe a bit clunky getting the water bottle back in the pocket). I like the two full front pockets--nice place to store a jacket/socks/hat for easy access.
I used this and the Exos 46 repeatedly last summer. I really wanted to like them, due to their very light weight. However, I had problems with the net on against my back coming apart at the edge next to the frame on both of them. I'm not sure if it's the frame that's causing the material to separate, the stitching or just the fabric being too delicate. What ever it was, I sadly got rid of both of these. They just do not hold up to actual use. FWIW, the weight carried was under 25 lbs.
I really like osprey packs and I got this one for my thru-hike of the pct. Although it's not the lightest of ultra-lite packs, it has some really cools features. Very comfortable and supportive on your back.
I took my new Exos out for 6 days in Wyoming's Wind River Range. I found the pack comfortable and very light but had the following experience: 1. The buckle on the hip belt popped open continually. 2. The webbing on the side pockets ripped. 3. The webbing on the hip belt ripped.The backpack is fine for well groomed trails but I would not recommend it for bushwacking in wilderness terrain. Osprey is fixing the pack under warranty but refused to swap it out for the sturdier built Atmos or Aether.
I took this pack out for 6 days in Wyoming's Wind River Range. I had the following problems: 1. The waist buckle popped open continually. In Osprey's attempt to make the pack light they fitted it with a small waist buckle which did not handle pressure. 2. The mesh side pockets ripped up. This pack may be suitable for established trails but not for bushwacking. 3. I like the waist belt pockets but the mesh also ripped.The pack is too light duty for backpacking in wilderness areas. I would not recommend it for rough terrain. I contacted Osprey and they have agreed to repair the pack but would not replace it with a studier models such as the Atmos or Aether.
The pack is a bit smaller than the Atmos 65, but the size large fit me better and has a capacity close to 60 liters. The pack has all the features I wanted at a fraction of the weight. The only thing it leaves out is a zipper for the sleeping bag compartment, but I usually take almost everything out at night anyways. Everything seems slightly more delicate than some of the other packs I have used, but with Osprey's lifetime warranty who can go wrong. Also, the hip belt seems to be made for larger waists. I am a size 32 and have it as tight as it goes.
"Awesome only if it fits, and it generally only seems to fit men"
The design seems great, lots of compartments if you're an organizer, one of my best friends swears by it, and I have seen several on the trail that have held up to many miles of use, but it doesn't seem to fit women very well -- the frame is rigid lower down around the hips, and either wraps around you or it doesn't. DEFINITELY try on a lot before getting too excited about it.
