The unisex Exodus 58L | 3500 CI pack is the lightest full-size, full-featured, frameless pack made, which might just explain why it won Backpacker Magazines Reader’s Choice Award for Best UltraLight Backpack! This professional level frameless backpack was designed for serious lightweight backpackers. It’s a thru-hikers dream come true!

“The Exodus is exactly what I need. Perfect size, perfect fit; good grief I can’t believe it took me 5 Thru-Hikes to FINALLY find my perfect pack. Wow! Thru-Hike number 6 coming up and I’m ready to roll!” – THRU HIKING LEGEND LINT

The Exodus made two full thru-hikes with Triple, Triple Crowner Lint Bunting before he downsized to an MLD Burn (which joined him on his next three thru-hikes!) What makes this UL pack so darn tough?

Strategic design, multiple cutting-edge details, quality UL hardware, and superb MLD craftsmanship. All our seams are double or triple stitched, and each pack has over 50 strategic strength bartacks. Every detail is painstakingly thought out.

NOTE: Hip belt pockets, shoulder strap pockets, and pack lids are available in Stealth Grey ONLY – regardless of pack color.

NOTE: The only difference between the current Exodus and Prophet is that the Exodus has a 4″ taller top extension collar and a 1.5″ hipbelt webbing. Most Small Torso users would be better off with the Prophet unless you have a lot of very light bulky insulation to pack.


• One of the most supportive and cushioned hip belts in any sub 20oz frameless pack. Padded SuperWick Mesh lined waist belt wings with 1.5″ webbing and buckle. Adjusts from about 28″ to 45″.
• S-shaped, comfort shoulder straps: 3″ wide X .8″ thick, SuperWick Mesh lined with full length highest quality 1/2″ thick EVA foam padding. Our shoulder straps are thicker and wider than most all other lightweight packs. Shoulder strap lower pack attachments are isolated from the hip belt for move comfort. Yes : comfort is in the details.
• Curved, SuperWick Mesh lined ergonomically shaped shoulder straps with full-length daisy chains to mount water bottle and accessory pouches. These are very comfortable shoulder straps and are super tough.
• Curved Side Panels: A slight curve from the waist to the shoulders moves the load closer to the upper back for more comfort. This also creates a slightly larger main compartment higher in the pack that helps load control by moving the heavier and higher packed gear higher to reduces shoulder stress.
• Hybrid Mesh/Dyneema X Side and Rear Pockets. The leading edge of the side pockets are Dyneema X to prevent snagging when moving through the bush. The lower 5″ of the rear pocket is Dyneema X to prevent abrasion from sharp contents or butt sliding accidents. The 4 oz sq yd open-hole non-stretch drains fast to allow contents to dry more quickly than a tight stretch mesh or solid fabric. Dyneema X elastic top sleeves for long term Durability and elastic replacement. Slanted side mesh pockets are deep enough for a 2L Platy. Pocket top bungee sleeves of Dyneema X for long term durability. Pocket adjusts by pulling the bungee closed through the cord lock. Many lower priced packs simply bind over the top of the raw mesh with regular garment type elastic that loses it’s stretch in a few years and doesn’t stretch in deep cold weather.
• 4oz sq/yd Open Hole non-stretch mesh. Stronger than stretch mesh that is twice the weight. Easy to field repair, does not absorb water and drains fast. Dyneema X elastic top sleeves for long term Durability and easy bungee elastic replacement.
• Dual ice axe/trek pole loops.
• Hydration Port
• Internal hang clip loops for Optional Hydration Pack Pouch inside of the pack. The Hydration Pouch also converts to a 1.1 oz summit day pack.
• The main bag is large enough for a solo bear canister vertical or horizontal depending on how you pack your sleep pad.
• Removable Multi-position “Awesome Sternum Strap” with Black Whistle-Lock Buckle 0.5 oz (not included in base pack weight)
• Side V compression straps with full strength buckles.
• Dry Bag roll top closure with V-top compression strap.
• Long shoulder straps terminate in hand/finger rest loops.


• 10″ of black 1/8″ bungee cord
• 2 mini cord clips and 3 cord locks

• Torso lengths on MLD packs are measured from the bottom of the pack below the waist belt wings to the point where the shoulder straps attach to the pack.
• 95% of MLD packs users do best to go by our height guidelines
• Different pack makers and outdoor stores measure for torso length differently AND frameless pack are measured and fit differently than fully framed packs with large hip belts. DO NOT go to your local outdoor store (REI etc…) and “get pack fitted” and then select a size/length based on that measurement; it will be wrong!
• Use our height guide! If you need help deciding the right size – Please feel free to give us a call. (Please don’t order multiple sizes as a guess!)
• Test Fit You Pack Indoors after Receiving it – We are happy to exchange for different size or refund new/unused packs.

• If In Doubt – SIZE UP!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Jeff Borne

    The ultimate thru-hike pack! Comfortable for the long haul even when a bear canister is required.
    Look no further – if you need a pack to carry a kit of 18lbs – 25lbs including consumables, it doesn’t get any better than the Exodus … period!

    The hype is warranted…this is far and away the best backpack I’ve ever owned for short and longer three-season trips. I like to keep my bear can in the middle of the pack and layer a sleeping pad and shelter between the can and my back. It is very comfortable.

    I love this backpack! One of my hiking buddies got one (he’s a freak about getting as lightweight equipment) and said it was a great backpack (and i needed a new one bad) so i saved some money and it was well worth it, I do suggest this backpack to anyone who is looking for a high quality lightweight alternative or even if you are just starting out with hiking/backpacking/etc. I wholeheartedly recommend this backpack. Thank You guys for making such high quality lightweight equipment!

    In my humble opinion the best pack out there. Durable, high quality, perfect design and fit to the body, rides well. Neo Air Xlite folded up for a back support works perfectly. Fully packed out winter gear, food, water, fuel, at 24 lbs this thing feels amazing. Was very sceptical going with my first frameless pack with about a 12 lb base weight, but I couldn’t be happier, nor could this pack be perfected in anyway that I can think of. I spent a TON of time researching packs and couldn’t be happier with this MLD Exodus.

    5’11 and the Large fits like a glove.
