PinkBike.com – Featuring Zealot Series and Hydraulics™ Reservoir – September 8, 2014

September 8, 2014

Orange car, to orange pack. Osprey’s 2015 Zealot pack has been evolved to meet the needs of the enduro mountain bike racer. Plenty of features including the Airscape back panel and an improved hip belt to keep it securely on your back. There’s space for your helmet and protection, plus water and tools. The Zealot is available in 2 sizes, S/M and M/L and Atomic Orange or Charcoal colourways.

A 3 litre Hydraulics Reservoir is included with the Zealot, which has a stiff back plate on the reservoir that can help to protect your spine and also keep its shape so all your water doesn’t rush to the bottom of your pack, plus the handle to the front makes it nice and easy for you to hold on to when filling. The removable roll-out tool pouch lives in its own pocket at the bottom of the Zealot for quick access. The bite valve features a magnet to attach to the chest strap so it’s always easy to locate.

September 4, 2014

I took the Kahney family on an epic road trip across the American West this summer, visiting a half-dozen of the United States’ most spectacular national parks. We covered thousands of miles, with six of us crammed into a Land Rover LR3 that had overstuffed storage units strapped to its top and back. Having the proper gear helped. Here’s a rundown of the best camping and outdoors gear we road-tested during our month-long trip…

Camelbak might make the best bottles, but the best hydration packs are now made by Osprey. We had a trio of 3.0-liter Osprey Hydraulics Reservoirs for our hikes, and they proved reliable lifesavers.

The Osprey bladders have a stiff backing plate and rigid carrying handles, which makes filling and handling them easier than other bladders. They slipped easily into and out of our backpacks, and didn’t flop everywhere when being filled. The large cap also helped (and the oversize opening made cleaning and drying a snap). The bite valve works better than Camelbak’s design, and the lockout is easy to use.

Vagabondish.com – Featuring Nebula – September 4, 2014

September 4, 2014

Osprey Packs has long been a mainstay of backpackers worldwide. With good reason as their packs are durable, stylish, lightweight and cleverly designed.

Their latest Nebula Backpack is built with modern nomads in mind. The primary feature that sets it apart from other Osprey packs is that it’s TSA-approved, meaning there’s no need to remove your laptop when going through security. The laptop sleeve simply unzips to lay completely flat on the x-ray belt.

Other features include: a heat embossed stash pocket, side stretch mesh pockets to secure extra gear, a front panel organization pocket, an easy-access padded sleeve to keep your electronics safe and secure and a sturdy top grab handle. All packaged into a compact (19″ x 11″ x 11″) and lightweight (just 2.2 pounds) form factor.
