For anyone carrying large loads on extended trips, load carrying ability and comfort are clearly the paramount concern: Osprey's colossal Xenith 88 load-lugger is designed with those requirements in mind.
A lightweight yet supportive frame transfers the load efficiently and comfortably to the BioForm CM hipbelt for minimum strain and maximum comfort, despite the tremendous size! Also connecting the Xenith 88 to you is the NeoSpacer mesh harness system and Airscape backpanel; this ergonomically sculpted harness system is sized to account for different back lengths but each is freely adjustable to further tailor the fit to you. To avoid the discomfort of having a large load sliding on your back as you move through rugged environments, the backpanel has a silicone grip-print to augment the already excellent stability offered by the harness.
Organization and access are two more key elements to making life on the trail easier. As well as its generous carrying capacity, the Xenith 88 Rucksack offers superb pocketing, multiple zip access points into the main compartment, front, side and hipbelt pockets, and a super-convenient way to carry a reservoir which is accessible from outside the bag.

Santa Cruz, California, 1974. Mike Pfotenhause sits down at his sewing machine and embarks on a challenge. A challenge to create an innovative backpack that is complex enough to move with the body. From a head full of ideas and a burning passion, Osprey was formed.
Fast forward to today, Mike’s one-man vision has grown into a wide range of Osprey rucksacks and accessories that are being used from the highest of mountains to the remotest of islands and everywhere between.
Osprey only design and produce high quality products that are built to last. Innovation is in every strand of each pack and an identity born out of true specialism, Osprey continue a true pioneering spirt that it started with in 1974.
