Screen-Shot-2015-02-12-at-2.59.07-PM

This year, we sent one of our gear testers on a quest to find and test the best daypacks around. From the top of Mailbox Peak to the streets of Seattle, these packs have been loaded, hauled, and beaten up, all in the service of finding out what they’re really made of. In the 2015 daypack comparison review, you’ll get all of the beta on the Osprey Tempest 30, the Cotopaxi Inca 26L and the Kelty Redtail 22 – and you’ll see the first ever Seattle Backpackers Magazine Editors’ Choice Award given out. Here you have it…

Osprey consistently makes some of the very best packs on the market, and this year is no exception. The Tempest 30 is a women’s specific pack that uses BioStretch technology to create an individualized fit for every user. The pack’s dynamic adjustment system along with its technical features and comfortable fit make this daypack our Editors’ Choice Award Winner.

You’ve topped out after huffing uphill for three hours, and biting wind is needling through your base layer. You rummage through your pack, looking for a jacket and snack, and realize you forgot your shell…

This is not a good backcountry strategy. To be safe and efficient, you need to dial in your packing so you can easily access the right gear at the right time. Bring only what you need, including emergency supplies, and nothing more. A heavy pack saps precious energy…

Anatomy of a Pack
Osprey’s Kode ABS® Compatible 22+10 is a fully functioning backcountry ski pack, and can unzip to accommodate an ABS™ Vario Base Unit with airbags (sold separately). At 22 liters, it’s perfect for day trips, and it expands to 32 liters for outings that require more gear.

Idaho’s striking Sawtooths were the backdrop for sun-spiked runs in early January.  Great gear did more than come along for the ride; it made being there all the sweeter.  Take a look and drop in wearing the best and beautiful…

For over 40 years, Mike Pfotenhauer and his team at Osprey Packs have been creating high performance gear “that reflects our love of adventure and our devotion to the outdoors.” Like so many of the fascinating companies profiled in our Made in Colorado series, Osprey has an amazing story to tell and many enduring successes to celebrate.

Like so many entrepreneurial innovators, Mike Pfotenhauer stumbled upon his life’s work organically and by fortuitous chance. He tells of family backpacking trips as a teen in Oregon, suffering under the weight of a pack with a bad fit. His mother mentored him in sewing, and at age 16, the prototype for his life’s work was birthed…
