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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight pack Loved the lightweight and capacity of this pack. Can fit a BV450 bear canister, gears and 4 days of food on a backpacking trip in CO and CA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the exos 48 I got the Exos 48 because I needed a backpack. When it came, I was surprised by how much it could hold. The Exos 48 is perfect for any adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it does really well Overview: I have ten days on this new pack, all on the AT in NY, NJ, with 14 to 34 lbs. (I packed 5 liters to 2 dry shelters, hence the wide weight range) First, and foremost, this is a frame pack, the frame does not flex in normal use, it is as stiff and unforgiving as my old Kelty ladder frame EFP, but- it fits incredibly well. I haven't yet tapped the upper limits of what this pack can comfortably carry for me. I'm guessing that around 60 lbs. the shoulder straps will be too thin and under padded for that weight. The belt will probably still work for me at any load the pack can hold. At the other end of the spectrum I didn't love it so much below 18 lbs. It felt like overkill- too much frame, too stiff, for such a light load. (Bear in mind that I'm 200 lbs. and have very strong shoulders compared to an average backpacker) Your comfort thresholds might be more like 35 lbs. upper limit- below 8lbs. overkill. Details: 1) The feature set is quite extensive, I used them all, and liked or loved all of them. 2) The fit is just dreamy 3) The mesh back panel breathes crazy well with your shirt OFF; even in mid 90's miserable East Coast humidity. Not so well with a shirt on- think damp flannel in a sauna.... but remember mid 90's, East Coast, high humidity, is pretty much a worst case scenario. Wicking fabrics don't help- ventilation does. If you need to wear a top on hot days non-wicking, non-absorbent mesh with holes (at least on the shoulders and back panel is the way to go. Women might do well with a sports bra that has a mesh back and shoulders and more solid fabric only in the front. 4) speaking of which, this is not a unisex pack it's a solid men's cut, especially the shoulder harness and waist belt, and frame profile. Use this test: if you can steal your boyfriends dress shirt, and look good wearing it, this might be your next pack, however if you've got gurrrly curves, and girly shoulders, this pack is absolutely not going to fit well. I truly hope a women's specific model is in the works.... 5) The 48L I bought is a huge pack, big enough for winter trips, big food bags, and bulky synthetic pile, puffys, or sleep system. I wouldn't buy that size again for myself, I'd go with the 38L, but remember I'm size large, and those aren't "fake" sizes. The pack really is bigger- they didn't just move the straps around and change the label. If I were short enough to wear a small I'd stick with the 48L if my gear was bulky. Conclusion: The final thought I'd like to leave you with is that this is a fantastic pack- but do you actually need a rigid frame pack? There are a lot of plusses here, ventilation, comfort with no top or sports bra, load transfer, reserve carrying capacity, but there are minuses as well I wouldn't wear this pack for cross country skiing for instance, but ski mountaineering I might. Also this is a pack that most airlines would absolutely love to destroy... In short, this pack does what it does fantastically well, but it's not perfect for every body shape or every type of trip. No pack ever is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great pack for overnight or thru hiking With my aim to become an ultralight backpacker, I decided to bite the bullet and go for one of the growing number of lightweight packs and as I tend to be a try before I buy kinda guy, I opted for the readily available Osprey Exos 48 pack. In my first attempt at setting up this pack I managed to get all my equipment (including four days of food and three litres of water) into the pack but I felt that I was pushing the friendship a bit. Two more repacks and a readjust on how I was packing, saw me comfortably fit all my equipment at a full loaded weight of 14.7 kg (32 lbs). I found the pack carried my loads which varied between 10 kg (22 lbs) - 21.3 kg (47 lbs) comfortably and even at the heavier end of the range at no stage did the shoulder straps cut in to me. On the few days that saw the temperature reached approximately 32 degrees celcius (90 F) my back remained sweat free. This pack has no shortage of pockets. The large stretchy pocket on the back is ideal for holding the tent and other flexible material. The two side pockets hold typical Nalgene style water bottles or other similar sized equipment. The two shoulder strap pockets are ideal for things like hand sanitiser and cliff bars, and the waist pockets are also ideal for snacks and other small bits and pieces. However, I think that these waist belt pockets are one of the negatives of this pack with many of the Exos' competitors are opting for large pockets that allow more flexibility in packing. Overall this is a great pack and one that I would highly recommend. All Osprey need to do now is to increase the size of the hips pockets and this pack will be perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wider Belt Option Please! My husband has the Exos 58. I have a larger, heavier Osprey pack, wanted a lightweight for 2-4 days of backpacking. I am 5'9", about 150, with a 19.5 torso. There is not a women's equivalent to the Exo, in terms of weight especially. Really wanted the 48, but my hips are wide (as are many women!), about 37.5, and the padding ends with the buckle just where my hipbone protrudes. I wish they had extended the padding about an inch, or had an option for a larger one. Other then that, seems like a great pack, but deal breaker for me. Would only recommend this to those with skinny hips!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nicely been I would say that I am minimalistish. It's a great pack served me well for the last year. Has way better airflow than my Volt 65. I would also say that you want to keep the weight around 25 pounds after that it doesn't carry well I will say this my wife tried it on and said there wasn't enough padding around the hips for her.

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 Great but not excellent. One more iteration, Osprey, please. I was using the prev version of Ospery Exos 46 for about 4 yrs and totally loved it. I warrantied it (broken buckle) and they sent me a new Exos 48. * I really really miss the front zip pocket of the old Exos 46. It was very useful for small items. Now everything has to go in the main compartment, which is annoying for things like first aid kit, TP, small gloves, socks. Essentially you only have the lid for these items, which is not enough. * Shoulders seem too fat (heavy?) and could be made slimmer, as this pack is not designed to carry heavy (30+ lbs) loads. * It's heavier, although only by a few grams, than its predecessor. I expect every iteration to be lighter! Why don't you use new space materials like cuben fiber? * hiking pole carry is a great feature. I use it rarely tho, b/c I have the UL BD carbon z-poles (highly recommend, btw) which can only be folded in 3 (too short for the carry system) or fully expanded (too long for any prolonged walking periods). And in any case, i'm almost always using my poles. Only for the final summit push (I do a lot of mountaineering w/ this pack) I stow away the poles. In which case they go in the side compression pockets (either ask friend, or take the pack off). * inside-out compression straps work remarkably well. Perhaps an weight saving option, Osprey, is if you use 3-5mm cord instead of dyneema as compression line. Smth like MSR uses on their tents. Function will be the same, I recon. * Love the new stretch pockets that ACTUALLY stretch (compared to the old Oxos where they barely do). Also, there's a second hole from the side that can be accessed w/ the pack on - for water bottle or gloves. * belt mesh pockets can be zipped open closed w/ one hand in both directions! amazing improvement. * belt and buckles seem overkill and too wide (50mm?) & heavy. Old Exos 46 had them super slim (15mm?) and it worked great. * I don't get why they put the rope carry top compression strap INSIDE the pack. Old Exos had it out.

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

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 chart 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 Hipbelt size info above to help determine your ideal pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.

ALL MIGHTY GUARANTEE - Osprey's Lifetime Warranty

When Osprey celebrated their 35th anniversary in 2009 they launched The Osprey All Mighty Guarantee. What that means to you is ANY Osprey product purchased at ANY time is covered. Any product, any reason, any era - the all encompassing Osprey lifetime warranty ensures their dedication to superior design, craftsmanship and quality of their products is backed up by their actions to replace or repair a pack so it lasts a lifetime. Or two.

Here are some details.... Osprey will repair for any reason, free of charge, any damage or defect in their products, whether it was purchased back in 1974, or ordered right now from this site. If they are unable to perform a functional repair on your pack, they will happily replace it. Osprey proudly stands behind the All Mighty Guarantee, so much so that it bears the signature of company founder and head designer, Mike Pfotenhauer.

Some Osprey All Mighty Guarantee FAQs:

What do I do if my Osprey pack needs to be repaired?
If you live in the United States and need a repair done on your Osprey pack, you will first need to obtain a Return Authorization number. You can do this by reaching their Returns Department at 866-314-3130, or using the information that is provided with a new Osprey pack.

What do I do if I just need a replacement pack part like a buckle?
Give Osprey a call at 866-314-3130 and they will take care of you.

How long will it take?
You can tell Osprey you need the pack returned by a certain date when you request a Return Authorization number, and they will do their absolute best to meet that deadline.

What if my pack is super dirty and stinks?
Clean it before you send it to Osprey to get repaired. The real reason is that there is a law that says if your gear is too dirty or odiferous (smelly), Osprey is not allowed to repair it and will just return it to you.

Do I have to pay for shipping?
A little bit. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the pack to Osprey, and they will pay shipping to return the pack via UPS or FedEx. Osprey cannot be held responsible if packages get lost in transit, so make sure you get a tracking number when you ship your pack out. Also, if you use expedited shipping be sure to let Osprey know (866-314-3130). They, in turn, will give your pack priority processing and return it using a similar expedited shipping method.

Do I have to register my pack to take advantage of this incredible guarantee, and/or need to be the original owner of my Osprey pack?
No! Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee is truly ALL MIGHTY. If you own an Osprey pack that needs to be repaired they will repair or replace it.

JUST A HEADS UP: If your Osprey product is not repairable and is replaced, the original product will not be returned to you. They will try really really hard to repair your pack, but if they are unable to make a functional repair, they will replace it. For products that are no longer in production you will be contacted by Osprey to discuss replacement options.

All good answers. So what is NOT covered?
• Osprey program packs or any Osprey pack used by outdoor programs are ONLY covered under Osprey's Program Pack Warranty, NOT AMG.
• Size and/or fit issues. Make sure you buy a pack that fits. Check out the size guide on Osprey product pages for more info.
• Personal preferences like colors you don't like, style of the pack, or not enough/too much room in your pack. Check the product description, features, specifications, and size guide to make sure you are ordering the right pack for you.
• Third party Repairs or replacements. Send your Osprey pack to Osprey and Osprey only to get fixed. Easy as that. And don't try fixing things yourself.
• Cosmetic wear and tear including any reasonable aging of your pack that affects only the appearance and not the function of your pack. Be proud of those scars!
• B.A.M.G. (Before All Mighty Guarantee) Repair Work. The All Mighty Guarantee applies only to repairs requested on or after January 1, 2009.
• A Osprey Hydraulics reservoir is covered by a limited 1-year warranty, which is the reasonable lifespan of a reservoir. Pouring and storing of warm/hot or boiling water in your reservoir WILL VOID your warranty, so don't do that. Reservoirs are NOT designed to contain or handle liquids at temperature.
