UtahOutside.com – Featuring Kode ABS Compatible 22 + 10 – December 10, 2014

December 10, 2014
Osprey-Kode-ABS

Avalanche airbag packs used to be an elusive beast; a rarely seen mountain specimen. But now, airbags are almost as common in the backcountry as beacons, shovels and probes. The packs are still expensive, but prices have been climbing down, and many more companies are getting into the game… including Osprey. This season is the debut of Osprey’s first avalanche airbag-compatible pack: the Kode ABS 22 +10 (as well as the larger Kode 42.) Osprey has proven to make top shelf mountain bike and backpacking bags, but do they hit one out of the park in the airbag realm?

After multiple uses in the Wasatch backcountry, I found the pack to have everything I could ask for – compartments for avalanche gear and other stuff like extra layers, food and crampons, goggle pockets, helmet carry, burly front panel for protection from ski edges… everything. Let’s break it down…

OutdoorGearTV.com – Featuring Porter 30 – December 8, 2014

December 8, 2014

The Osprey Porter 30 is the smallest in the Porter series, and the sizing felt just right for carry-on. The easy-to-access large panel compartment held all of the clothes needed for a two week trip overseas (not including climbing gear) and even when it was packed full it still fit under the seat on all plane rides…. The straps tuck into the pack when not in use and the StraightJacket compression cinches down nicely. Not having to deal with excessive straps on a travel bag is one of the Porter’s best features…

…On my Montenegro trip, I noticed a very petite woman who had a pack that fit her perfectly, while her husband who was considerably taller had a pack that fit him. That’s when I realized that packs come in different sizes.

Also, some manufacturers (Osprey, Gregory, Deuter, Kelty, Eagle Creek) make both men’s and women’s packs.

“Sizing your pack is key to not only comfort but the pack’s performance,” according to pack manufacturer Osprey. Click here to see some common good fit/bad fit examples from Gregory…

Vermont Sports Magazine: Online – Featuring Tempest 20 – December 5, 2014

December 5, 2014

Osprey-Tempest-20-199x300You’ll find a gift for everyone on your list this season with some helpful suggestions from our Gear and Beer Editor, Hilary DelRoss. You’re sure to please the picky and inspire the intrepid with this line up of unique and accessible ideas, some of which come from right here in Vermont…

Osprey Tempest 20: Influenced by the popular Talon Series for men, the Tempest has recently been added to Osprey’s line of women’s specific packs. Innovations in both series this season reduced weight and increased comfort. The mesh and foam harness and hip belt provide comfortable, load-bearing stability and extra easily accessible pockets. The back panel has been reconfigured to include a foam air chimney to increase ventilation away from the body and the hydration sleeve is accessed from the back of the pack. A helmet attachment can also be found on the exterior for hands-free storage between rides.

GearJunkie.com – Featuring Pixel Port – December 4, 2014

December 4, 2014

Osprey Pixel Port: The Osprey Pixel Port has a suspended laptop sleeve, multiple compartments, and an integrated organizational pocket. A tablet sleeve with a see-through, touchscreen compatible window works so well that you might not even bother removing it from the Pixel Port.

Leon’s Take: “At first glance, I thought the touchscreen feature might prove gimmicky, but I was sold on my first business trip. It quickly became my everyday pack and it looks like new despite more than a year of daily use and double-duty as my carry-on bag whenever I fly.”
