I'm looking for a backpack capable of holding a weeks gear, without having to pack the bare minimum.
I currently have a Golite Jam which is great but I would prefer something with a few more pockets to keep passports/tickets etc safe.
Would the Exos 58 fit this bill and how viable would it be to use as a daypack whilst on excursions?
I've got both the Exos 46 and the Exos 58. Great packs.
The Exos 58 is a good size if your backpacking style is more slackpacking rather than uberlightweight minimalist and will certainly hold a week's worth of gear. It does sound as though you are looking for something to use for travelling rather than backpacking, however.
The Exos 58 has a lid pocket but it would be too large to use as a daypack, even with the compression straps snugged down. Had you considered one of those travel bags that incorporates a rucksack harness that zips away and a detachable daypack on the front?
