If your kids are like mine, walking along a trail might be “too hard” or “tiring,” but running along a trail is downright delightful. It makes zero sense, of course, but don’t fight this desire for kids to go, go, go…
Here’s what your kids will need for safe, fun trail running this season.
The Osprey Rev 1.5 is perfect for teens, due to the slim profile and snug fit. Take the time to try on many models—the most important criteria is the ease of use of the plastic tubes and bite valves and how well the pack fits the body.
Outdoor Insight – Featuring Osprey Packs as the Official Partner of the National Park Foundation – December 2015
To conduct our 2015 ski touring day pack test, test director Ben Conners recruited a team of testers who used these packs on day trips throughout Colorado inbounds along with multiple day trips into the backcountry of Southwest Colorado. They compared them side by side rating them on our five main criteria—comfort/stability, ski/snowboard carry, features, ease of use, and durability. The Gear Institute Rating is the combined score across all categories, representing the highest overall level of performance.
Osprey Kode 32L
Simply put, the Osprey Kode 32 has it all for half to full-day forays into the backcountry. This was the single overall favorite out of all the packs in this test.
What will the holidays bring for adventure? No matter what the weather outside, there’ll be something exciting brewing indoors when your favorite outdoors lover unwraps one of these fun surprises—even if your favorite outdoors lover is you.
Osprey Ultralight Stuff Pack
What if the stuff you stuff in a stocking is something that itself is made for stuffing? At four-by-four-by-two-inches compressed, the Osprey Ultralight Stuff Pack is so small it’ll go anywhere, even the bottom of a briefcase, then pop out into an 18-liter backpack ready for the nearest trail. Its weight? A feathery three ounces.
