VailDaily.com – Featuring Zealot 10 – June 5, 2012

June 5, 2012

Who has the coolest new gear at Gear Town?

That’s a big question every year when vendors come display their latest wares at the Teva Mountain Games’ annual expo in Vail Village.

(…)

Over in the Osprey tent, the new Zealot series all-mountain cycling packs are their newest items for 2012.

The Zealot 10 includes padded front pockets, harness pockets, backpanel access, an easily removable water reservoir, a removable tool pouch and more.

According to Justin Novak, the bike customer and dealer service representative, the removable reservoir and the tool pouch are what makes this item unique. The pouch is designed to hold tools in case of any unexpected emergencies.

“Our company has been around since 1974 and we have a great lifetime warranty on all of our packs,” Novak said. “Our designer is very key and is hands-on with everything that we do and our warranty is what really sets us apart.”

SnowShoeMag.com – Osprey Sponsors Breast Cancer Fund’s 13th Annual Climb Against the Odds – June 5, 2012

June 5, 2012

Osprey Packs announced their sponsorship of the 2012 Climb Against the Odds, the Breast Cancer Fund’s annual mountaineering expedition for breast cancer prevention.

From June 17 to 23, 2012, a team of up to 27 women who have been touched by cancer will attempt to summit the 14,179-foot Mount Shasta, located in Northern California. As a corporate sponsor, Osprey outfits each team member with an Ariel 65 backpack.

The Breast Cancer Fund – now celebrating its twentieth year – has led 12 successful Climb Against the Odds mountaineering expeditions around the world, and through them has raised millions of dollars to support the organization’s groundbreaking work to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Monies raised through climber sponsorship directly support the organization’s work to translate the growing body of scientific evidence linking breast cancer and environmental exposures into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect health and reduce breast cancer risk.

Osprey is a long time supporter of the Climb Against the Odds; 2012 is the seventh year that the award-winning pack manufacturer has sponsored the event. Joining this year’s expedition is Osprey Customer Service Representative Shannon Hahn, who has pledged to raise $10,000 through her climb.

OutdoorIndustry.org – Osprey Sponsors Breast Cancer Fund’s 13th Annual Climb Against the Odds – June 5, 2012

June 5, 2012

Osprey Packs, Inc., a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs, has announced their sponsorship of the 2012 Climb Against the Odds, the Breast Cancer Fund’s annual mountaineering expedition for breast cancer prevention.

From June 17 to 23, 2012, a team of up to 27 women who have been touched by cancer will attempt to summit the 14,179-foot Mount Shasta, located in Northern California. As a corporate sponsor, Osprey outfits each team member with an Ariel 65 backpack.

The Breast Cancer Fund – now celebrating its twentieth year – has led 12 successful Climb Against the Odds mountaineering expeditions around the world, and through them has raised millions of dollars to support the organization’s groundbreaking work to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Monies raised through climber sponsorship directly support the organization’s work to translate the growing body of scientific evidence linking breast cancer and environmental exposures into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect health and reduce breast cancer risk.

Osprey is a long time supporter of the Climb Against the Odds; 2012 is the seventh year that the award-winning pack manufacturer has sponsored the event.  Joining this year’s expedition is Osprey Customer Service Representative Shannon Hahn, who has pledged to raise $10,000 through her climb.

“I felt compelled to support the Breast Cancer Fund’s mission to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer,” said Shannon. “From their groundbreaking work, I’ve learned that a precautionary approach to chemical exposure is essential to sound health. The organization works from the knowledge that breast cancer is not simply a personal tragedy, but also a public health priority.”

Shannon will be blogging about the expedition on the Osprey blog. To sponsor Shannon and the Breast Cancer Fund, supporters can go to her fundraising page.

“We’re proud to be sponsoring Climb Against the Odds once again, and supporting the important work of the Breast Cancer Fund,” said Gareth Martins, marketing director of Osprey. “We are excited that our own team member Shannon Hahn is joining this year’s expedition, and wish her and the rest of the inspiring team the best of luck in reaching the summit in June.”

OutsideOnline.com – Featuring Escapist 20 – June 1, 2012

June 1, 2012

BEST FOR: Mountain-biking or hiking in hot climes. THE TEST: With internal pockets designed especially for bike tools, and attachment points for a light and helmet, the 20-liter Escapist was made for long-distance mountain biking, but it was so comfy and cool—the back panel and shoulder straps are mostly airy mesh—that it became one of our favorite daypacks, too. Plus, whereas the Summit Rocket eschews almost all creature comforts, the Escapist retains several. The hipbelt has a bit more structure, and the shoulder straps and back panel are well padded. These features and others (tuck-away rain cover, tons of pockets) add weight, but the Escapist is still a respectable pound and a half. THE VERDICT: We defy you to find something you can’t use this for.

Babble.com – Featuring Poco Plus – June 2012

June 1, 2012

Father’s Day is coming up, and though Dad says he would be content with a game on TV and a mid-afternoon nap, we think he wouldn’t mind getting one of these awesome presents, either! So whether your father — or the father of your children — is the outdoorsy type, Mr. Fix-It, or the life of the party, you’ll find great ideas for him at every price point (and there’s still time to ship it before the big day!). Happy shopping!

The New Father | Osprey Poco Plus Child Carrier

Dad won’t have much time for the gym during baby’s first year, so help him compensate with a power walker’s backpack he can load up with child weight. Equally comfy for Dad and baby, the Poco Plus is perfect for casual hikes, trips to the zoo, and other excursions.

TheAdventureBlog.com – Featuring Zealot 16 – June 1, 2012

June 1, 2012

Backpacks are a lot like tools. You definitely want the right one for job at hand. It use to be that you would simply buy a pack or two in the sizes that you needed and then you’d make them work for what ever outdoor pursuits that interested you. The same daypack could be used for hiking, mountain biking, skiing or what ever other activities that you needed it for. Now however you can buy a pack specifically designed for the sport you need it for, and like having the the right tool for the job, it can make all the difference.

Take for example the new Zealot 16 from Osprey, a pack designed from the ground up for mountain bikers. With its ample storage, well padded shoulder straps and belt, integrated AirScape suspension and built-in media pocket it has just about everything a rider could ask for when hitting the trail. Throw in a 3-liter hydration bladder and a Lidlock helmet attachment, and you have a pack that can match just about anything else on the market in terms of features. But we all know a checklist of features is only useful when comparing packs at the gear shop.
