Hiking backpacks are a very specific sort of thing. You don't want to risk going overboard with your design and you don't want to necessarily skimp on important features. Osprey has taken its decades of experience in this area and used it to create two of the best hiking backpacks out there.

The Levity is designed for someone who wants to experience the outdoors with all the works. You'll have the complete package to help you enjoy your hike as you want to. The Exos is designed for those who might want to stick to the basics. It isn't particularly fancy but it should provide enough.

Gear Junkie

The Levity and Lumina are niche tools for those who want a nice suspension in a super light pack. These carry a lot like the Anti-Gravity series of Osprey packs, which work so well some of our testers call them the most comfortable backpacks they’ve worn.
