Providing customized fit and heavy load-hauling capability for female backpackers, the Osprey Xena 85 Women’s pack is an ideal companion for multi-day or extended-length backpacking trips. Convenient access points, innovative features and 4700+ cubic inches of storage capacity result in a pack built for the backcountry.


Providing customized fit and heavy load-hauling capability for female backpackers, the Osprey Xena 85 Women’s pack is an ideal companion for multi-day or extended-length backpacking trips. Convenient access points, innovative features and 4700+ cubic inches of storage capacity result in a pack built for the backcountry.

Committed to providing all outdoor enthusiasts with optimal performance, Osprey equips its women's packs with gender-specific design features. Harnesses are cut wider through the collar bone area and have an ergonomic taper in the chest area. Offering a women's specific cant and a narrower cut, the hipbelts found on Osprey's women's packs also cater to female users.

Constantly striving to enhance comfort and performance, Osprey has equipped the pack with a ground-breaking suspension system. A peripheral 3.55mm LightWire aluminum frame works in tandem with a mesh/foam backpanel, and a dual density BioForm CM foam harness to transfer weight to your hips, maximize stability, and reduce heat build-up between your back and the pack itself. Further ensuring a proper fit, the revolutionary BioForm CM hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt with split support wings. A sliding sternum strap and load-lifter straps allow you to fine-tune fit with on-the-go adjustments.

Each of three available sizes of the backpack offers torso adjustability. The Xsmall accommodates torso lengths ranging from 14"-17", the Small accommodates torso lengths ranging from 16"-19", and the Medium is designed for 18"-21" torso lengths.

The huge main packbag has space to match the pack's suspension and enable you to comfortably carry 40-70 pounds of gear! It has full top access, but can also be reached via zippered vertical side access points. A lower sleeping bag compartment has a wide zippered mouth for easy packing and unpacking. Twin vertical storage pockets on the face of the pack have weather-resistant zippers and aid in the organization of gear. A large front pocket utilizes welded stretch woven fabric to serve as a convenient storage spot for layers of clothing or other gear. Multiple compression straps enable you cinch down your pack to keep contents safely and securely in place. These same straps also serve as lash points for additional gear.

Other features include integrated trekking pole loops, ice tool loops with tie-offs, removable sleeping pad straps, zippered hipbelt pockets and stretch side water bottle pockets. The pack's top lid is removable and can be used as a fully-functional summit pack or daypack. It even has its own integrated shoulder straps, sternum strap, reservoir sleeve, and organizational features. An external sleeve tucked behind the backpanel makes the pack hydration system compatible (system sold separately) without decreasing internal capacity.

A Beast!


I got this particular pack because I need a size extra small which reduces the volume of the pack down to 77L and also because it’s the only Osprey pack that has external access to the hydration reservoir which was very important. I hate struggling with a full reservoir and a full pack. The Osprey Hydraulics with a backing plate works great in this pack. Even when full this pack is comfortable and manageable. At 5’7”/130 and a very short torso, I took an extra small and it fits comfortably. It is very spacious with well-appointed features and pockets. It fits my UL tent, sleeping bag, pad, stove, food, almost glamping level space. The daypack is handy and also comfortable. It’s roomy enough for those last push snacks and gear. This is my first large backpacking pack but I’m very happy and with the quality I can’t imagine I’ll need another for quite some time.


It does not come with a rain cover. At this price point and the fact that lesser Osprey packs come with the cover, I think this one certainly should. You can buy them separately but I don’t think you should have to.
