The Osprey Exos is on my short list also. I have an Aether 70 for backpacking and a Stratos 24 for heavy dayhiking. The Aether weights in at over 5 lbs and is larger than I need for my 2-3 day backpack trips, and the Stratos is really too small for an overnight.

I tried on the Exos at REI last weekend (I don't have an REI store close to me and I was on vacation---got to the Las Vegas and Santa Monica stores!). Coming from the Aether, I thought the Exos was light on padding and adjustment. I wanted to get your thoughts (or anyone elses) on it....
