The Vargo ExoTi BOG backpack (2 pounds 9 ounces / 1.16 kg, MSRP $299.95) is a roll-top, external, titanium framed backpack with a removable 40-liter 70 denier primary compartment.Sep 21, 2021 at 10:10 am #3727906Mark WetheringtonBPL Member

Thanks for a thorough review! Good mix of details and research into other’s experience and the intentions behind the pack. Enjoyed the interview with Brian as well.Sep 22, 2021 at 1:35 pm #3727974Murali CBPL Member
I had this backpack – but sold it. I felt that the lumbar pad was too pronounced for my comfort. If it had been a little less pronounced, it would have been better. Also the fabric feels delicate. Using 200 denier gridstop fabric would have been much better. A great design as you can change the main bag with different size dry bags from Sea to Summit or remove the bag completely for peak bagging. But, felt that the fabric would give up and I think there are some reports of that. But the main problem was the aggressive lumbar support – if the bag slips, then you will feel it.Oct 4, 2021 at 5:54 pm #3728826Roger CaffinBPL Member

Interesting article, but I was disappointed that there was almost no information about the Ti frame itself. A direct photo of the back of the pack would have told me so much.
Disclosure: I have made and used similar packs using Easton aluminium arrows, going as far back as 2005. Straight verticals and curved horizontals. But I had a sprung mesh across the frame, which changed the whole suspension and comfort (for the better).
