Outdoor Informer – Featuring Raptor 6 Hydration Pack – May 22, 2010

June 9, 2010

A lightweight hydration pack has become a must for longer biking treks. Hydration packs are versatile enough to carry plenty of water along with clothing for rainy weather and tools for maintenance emergencies. Osprey Packs’ new Raptor series is the company’s latest activity-specific line of packs for biking and trail running and is the smallest capacity pack in the Raptor line.

Osprey Packs have integrated a comfy harness and waist belt into the Raptor 6. The harness is flexible due to its mesh and foam design. The flexibility allows the harness to adjust to your body movements. The mesh and nylon hip belt has 2 pockets and cinches in the Raptor 6 above your hips.

The Cyclist – Featuring Raptor – May 26, 2010

If you asked the endurance racing crowd or if you surveyed the bikepacking group, the folks that spend hours and days crossing remote sections of the countryside, as to what backpack/hydration pack was a favorite among them, the Osprey Talon 22 would be at the top of the list.  It is lauded for its comfort, design, and construction.  In the world of hiking, multi-sport and mountaineering, Osprey is well known.  It turns out that Osprey has been making packs for some time now and in 2009, celebrated 35 years in the business.

Now, in addition to more types of packs than you can imagine, they have added a new line of hydration packs under the Hydraulic banner. Called the Raptor series, they are pointed directly at mountain bikers although they could apply to a multi-sport application.

June 7, 2010

When Osprey told us it was updating its stellar Aether and Ariel series, we worried it was fixing something that wasn’t broken. But one tester comment is all it took for us to stop fretting: “I carried the previous Aether on Denali in 2005, and, believe me, this new model handles bulkier gear and hauls even more weight, up to 60 pounds, without an ounce hanging on my shoulders.”

One of my favorite gear companies, Osprey Packs, has announced that is is a sponsor of the 11th annual Climb Against the Odds expedition, which is a major fundraiser for the Beast Cancer Fund.

This year, a team of 26 men and women will be climbing the 14,179-foot tall Mt. Shasta in Northern California to raise awareness and funds for the program. Each of these men and women have been touched by cancer in some way, making this a very personal climb for each of them. The climb is scheduled to take place June 13-19 of this year. As one of the major sponsors for the expedition, Osprey will be outfitting the women with one of their Ariel packs, while the men will receive an Aether pack.
