Osprey’s Exos has long ranked as a personal favorite among our team—a fast-packing weekend pack that shaves weight with every feature, but has a suspension that handles even heavy and poorly packed weekend loads. Osprey‘s Ultra-Light Exos updates the old model (introduced in 2008) by refining its innovative Superlight AirSpeed suspension, which employs a trampoline-like mesh back panel and a light, half-internal frame that runs parallel to your back. The company has also paired it with a new “Exoform” harness and hipbelt, which work together to dramatically improve the pack’s comfort and support. The pack also comes with all the expected Osprey add-ons like a front stretch-mesh pocket, an ice tool attachment, zippered hip belts, and more. Best yet, the biggest of the three pack sizes (the Exos 58, size L) weighs in at under three pounds. Prices range from $160 to $220. —Nathan Borchelt
