Designed to handle large loads on extended trips, the women’s-specific Osprey Xena 85 can comfortably carry up to 70 lbs. of backpacking essentials, making it an excellent choice for remote mountaineering objectives or long hiking excursions.
The Xena 85 is loaded with technical features that long distance hikers will appreciate. LightWire™ suspension and dual side compression straps keep your load stable even when moving through rugged terrain. The heat-molded BioForm™ harness and hipbelt provides a precise customized fit to ensure all day comfort and a mesh backpanel keeps you cool if the temps heat up as you climb over the pass.
The top of the pack is a dual compartment that can also be removed to save weight or converted into a lumbar pack for summit dashes. Two zippered hipbelt pockets keep your phone, snacks, and other essential items organized and close at hand. External stretch mesh pockets—two side and one rear—allow more grab and go storage options. The external hydration sleeve allows easy access to make liquid refills a snap. There are dual ice axe loops for alpine adventures and the Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole storage system lets you stash your sticks without breaking stride.
