Show Description

The Viva 50 is a pared-back, simple design that retains all the plushy comfort Osprey hiking packs are renowned for. The highlights are its durable fabrics and easily adjustable hipbelt and harness that adapt to many torso and waist sizes ̶ a great feature for growing teens, large families and scout groups who might end up sharing a pack. You can quickly adjust the hipbelt as you add or remove layers and the stretch pockets on either side let you stash a jacket or gloves on the fly. Hip pockets store your snacks or camera and the back panel allows air to circulate when you're adding big elevation gains to your miles. A versatile option for both extended hiking trips or long-weekend missions.

  • Made of light, yet durable 210-denier nylon ripstop with robust 600-denier nylon packcloth in the base and high-wear areas.
  • Peripheral frame and HDPE framesheet effectively transfer weight to the hipbelt and spread it across the entire back panel.
  • Mesh-covered ridged foam back panel provides ventilation and keeps the load close to the body.
  • Women's specific height adjustable harness and hipbelt fit a wide variety of torso and waist sizes.
  • Access the pack interior via the top drawstring or bottom zipper.
  • Bottom sleeping bag compartment has a stowable divider if you want your sleeping bag to mingle with the rest of your gear.
  • Stretch mesh front and side pockets let you stash gear on the fly.
  • Zippered side, hipbelt and lid pockets provide secure storage.
  • Dual tool loops with bungee tie-offs carry ice axes.
  • Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachments let you stash your poles without removing the pack.
  • Side compression straps and bottom sleeping pad straps to attach extra gear.
  • Hydration sleeve holds a 3L reservoir (sold separately).
