What are Adventure Levels?
There’s a reason many long distance hikers haul their gear in an Exos. At just over two pounds, it’s the Osprey pack of choice for adventurers looking to go ultralight. This pack has stripped ounces but not comfort, as it still boasts the suspension and load distribution for which Osprey is known.
