The Place: DEN > DCA > EZE > LHR > KEF > CDG > RAK > CMN > DOH > HKG > SYD > MEL > LAX > SFO > LAS > DEN

The Time: Global video shoot for Gray Line Worldwide over 21 days last October-November.

What we Thought: 

Style: Sleek enough to avoid sticking out at a five star hotel, yet outdoorsy enough to work for a ski weekend, the Ozone 22” has clean lines and smart design. But don’t expect bells and whistles. The bag draws little attention and the light grey color scheme allows for quick identification when traveling with other baggage. As I described to a friend, it made me look less dirtbaggish

iRunFar.com – Featuring Rev 6 – January 15, 2015

January 15, 2015

Who doesn’t like moving fast? I mean, it’s kind of the point of running! Osprey has decided to target us runners and hikers who are out to move quickly by creating a pack that is built for speed, but with enough capacity to sustain us for the long haul. The Osprey Rev 6 is obviously a pack built for just that. Osprey also tried to incorporate some new innovations with the pack…

Fit: Grade A+
One of the most important attributes for a running pack is its fit, and the Rev 6 fits magnificently. When I first got the pack, I was suspicious of how well it would fit because it lacks a waist belt. But, once I got the pack on and snapped the two Biostretch BodyWraps (a fancy term for chest straps) into place, I was very happy to find that the pack fit close to my body and moved with me exceptionally well. I’ve completed a number of three-plus-hour trail runs with this pack without any chafing at all. The Hydraulics LT Reservoir has baffles inside the bladder that are excellently designed and greatly reduce water sloshing while running. One of the best innovations in this pack is a plastic support that crosses the reservoir pocket and allows the water bladder to securely slide into place…

The Mutant 28, by Osprey, packs the essentials for a minimalist looking to get into alpine, ice or vertically mixed endeavors. Thoughtfulness, through design and testing, have put purposeful features to work, creating a pack that can do big things in a little package.

Weighing in just shy of a kilogram, this 28 liter pack feels up to the task despite its light stature in carrying just the right amount of load you may need for your vertical adventures.

This fall I used the Mutant 28 for day long rock climbing outings. With the approaches varying in length, from 20 minutes to an hour plus, I found this pack to be in its sweet spot carrying the goods my partner and I would need for a day of multi-pitch climbing. In the Shawangunks I was able to put the pack to its first test on my back…
