  • OSPREY Xenith 88 Backpack

    Osprey knows that you need the best load carrying ability and comfort when carrying large loads on extended trips, which is why they designed the Xenith 88 pack. An innovative suspension system provides excellent support, while the pack itself gives you more than enough room to pack for an epic trip.


    • LightWireHD peripheral frame effectively transfers load to the hipbelt while a single 6061-T6 center stay maintains backpanel shape
    • BioForm harness with NeoSpacer fabric comes in multiple sizes and gender-specific cuts and has no sewn seams for excellent comfort and fit
    • BioForm CM hipbelt balances firmness and cushioning for optimal carry and can be heat-molded for a precise, personalized fit
    • Reversed spacer mesh backpanel provides a smooth, breathable contact surface
    • Dual-compartment top pocket quickly and easily converts to a lumbar pack with a built-in hip belt for shorter side trips
    • External hydration sleeve in the backpanel makes refilling a breeze and protects the rest of your gear from spills
    • Dual compression straps on the sides minimize pack volume, improve load stability, and can be used to attach extra gear externally
    • Zippers on each side of the pack provide wide, easy access to the main compartment; curved path reduces stress on the zipper for smooth opening and closing
    • Wide mouth sleeping bag access with divider keeps your bag easily accessible and separate from the rest of your gear
    • Stretch mesh front pocket is perfect for stashing extra layers or other items you want easily accessible; stretch mesh side pockets are ideal for water bottles or tent poles
    • Zippered hipbelt pockets provide secure storage for small items and are easily accessible while hiking
    • Removable sleeping pad straps allow you to attach a sleeping pad to the outside of the pack, leaving more room inside for the rest of your gear
    • Includes Stow-on the Go trekking pole attachment and dual ice axe loops with bungee tie-offs to keep hands free and your tools safe and secure
    • Ideal for carrying loads between 40 and 70 lb. (perfect for a 3+ night trip)

Comments about OSPREY Xenith 88 Backpack:

This is my first expedition backpack (larger than my previous 65L pack) and so far it has done incredibly well. It not only allows for extended 7-10 day trips but is also much more comfortable than expected. My longest day being 24km (15miles) with a 55lb pack and I felt considerably more comfortable than I ever had on previous trips. My only issue with this pack was figuring out the sizing because I am tall and skinny (6ft 160lbs) I needed the large frame size, however, with this size I could not fit the hip belt. Eventually I settled on the medium size extended the adjustable shoulder pads and it fits almost perfect. As with most packs you will have fiddle around with the straps and weight distribution to get it fitting correctly. For me this process took a little longer. All in all a great pack if your looking to go on extended backpacking trips.
