PowderMag.com – Featuring Kode ABS 22 + 10 – May 7, 2014

May 7, 2014

I like the flexibility this pack gives me. The Kode (available in the fall) can expand by 10 liters if necessary. It also has more really well thought out features than I probably even realize, like a wet-dry gear division, zippered goggle pocket, hydration hose, diagonal ski carry, helmet carry, and full perimeter zips for easy access.

FoxNews.com – Featuring Contrail 28 – May 7, 2014

May 7, 2014

It’s almost summer. Time to grab our gadgets and get out of town.

But how to protect our gear? Fortunately, there are plenty of options. Whether we’re shopping for our own vacation or for a gift for mom, dad or grad, there’s a piece of high-tech luggage out there to help us hit the road…

For former hikers now turned business travelers, there’s the Osprey Contrail 28, a curved, sophisticated 75-liter roller with padded handles, a slew of special pockets and a lifetime guarantee. There’s a top pocket for a camera or a phone and side and rear pockets for quick access to cables. And for that formal business meeting, there’s a special “flight locker” organizer for suit and shoes. Best of all, the Contrail’s sturdy internal aluminum frame with a raised base will keep your gear dry – even if you stand the bag in a puddle of water, which I freely admit I have done.

TheGearCaster.com – Featuring Raven 6 – May 6, 2014

May 6, 2014

Winter is over, ski resorts have closed for the season, the ice is off the lake—that can mean only one thing. Time to get your mountain bike on. Whatever your style—enduro, XC, downhill, beginner, or seasoned shredder, here are some essentials to keep you riding happy…

Osprey Raven 6 hydration pack: You need somewhere to store an extra layer, water, snacks, your phone, tools, and first aid kit (for those long XC adventures) while out your ride. I find the 6L-10L capacity hydration packs are the perfect size for your daily mountain bike rides.

OutsideOnline.com – Featuring FlapJill Pack – May 6, 2014

May 6, 2014

Would your mother or wife prefer to be climbing, boating, or running rather than brunching this Sunday? If the answer is yes, read on. Skip the flowers and honor what she loves to do by following these gear suggestions from six dedicated moms who also happen to be elite athletes…

Beth Rodden, one of the most celebrated crack climbers in the world, will only have been a mother for ten days this Mother’s Day. Needless to say, she hasn’t put much thought into what gifts she wants or what she’s going to do. “We’ll probably just hang out,” Rodden says.

She did suggest the Osprey FlapJill pack for other moms because of the bag’s versatility. “I’ve been using it for a crag or bouldering pack and now I’m using it as a diaper pack,” Rodden says. It’s easy to access the gear thanks to multiple zippered entry points—turns out this feature works equally well to reach shoes or a jacket as it does to grab diapers or wipes.

ActiveJunky.com – Featuring Exos Series – May 5, 2014

May 5, 2014

The gear you need for Utah will likely be dictated by what you plan to do while you’re there, so this list doesn’t cover the arsenal of products that you need to hike, climb, bike, backpack, or…whatever while you’re there. Instead, we’ve honed in on a few key pieces that you’ll likely need in any scenario you will encounter…

What you plan on doing (backpacking, hiking, biking, etc..) will dictate the size of the pack you need, but chances are one of Osprey’s recently re-imagined Exos Series will hit that sweet spot.  The ultra-light daypacks and longer-haulers are some of the most comfortable backpacks on the market, with an AirSpeed SL Suspension system that elevates the pack off the back thanks to a breathable mesh back panel that keeps you cool in even the most extreme, arid temperatures.  The harness and hipbelt distributes the pack weight evenly, and all three models (from the perfectly sized 38-liter day pack to the 48-liter superlight backpacking pack) have a host of great add-ons.

OutdoorGearTV.com – Featuring Tempest 20 – May 4, 2014

May 4, 2014

For those of us who like one day-pack that can do it all, the Osprey Tempest 20 is a great choice. This pack has attachments for a bike helmet and light, ice tool, and trekking poles. The Tempest is very breathable, thanks to Osprey’s Airscape backpanel. Osprey gave the shoulder straps and hip belts just enough padding to provide plenty of comfort, while still maintaining breathability.

Other features that won me over on the Tempest 20 include: The easy to use stow-on-the-go trekking pole attachment, the adjustable torso harness, and the exterior hydration sleeve. The exterior hydration sleeve makes refilling you hydration bladder easier and faster…
