For this spring Osprey will be releasing the Xenith and Xena packs, two new large capacity backpacks for long distance trekking, traveling and expeditions.
The Xenith, for men, and the Xena for women, are genre specific designs of the same base. Built with long lasting materials like 210D HT-HD Nylon and 840D Nylon Powermesh, those packs were created to resist heavy use and long trips. They both come with the Airscape suspended backpanel system, used in other packs of the brand, for improved ventilation and comfort. The LightWireHD frame transfers the weight to a pre-curved hip belt. On the Xena, the shoulder straps and hip belt are female specific for a better fit. The Osprey Xenith and Xena have a removable lid and come in different sizes. For the Xenith: 105, 88 and 75 liters with annouced prices of £240, £220 and £200 respectively. For the Xena: 85 and 70 Liters, £220 and £200 respectively.
