PLEASE NOTE THAT THE OSPREY XENITH AND XENA PACKS REQUIRE CUSTOM HEAT MOULDING. The Osprey Mens Xenith 88L Hiking and Mountaineering Backpack is ideal for backpackers who venture deep into the backcountry carrying camping essentials for more than a few nights out. The Xenith 88 is loaded with technical features that long distance hikers will appreciate. LightWire suspension and dual side compression straps keep the 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 up the summit ridge. 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.
