PracticalTravelGear.com – Featuring Cyber Port – January 14, 2014

January 14, 2014

It’s hard to go wrong with an Osprey pack. If I had to pick–absolutely had to–I think I’d rate Osprey as my overall favorite backcountry adventure and ski pack choice. That said, until introduced the the Portal Series, I’d never considered using an Osprey pack as a carry-on backpack or laptop bag.  The Osprey Cyber Port backpack is tough yet streamlined, and stylish while still classic.

With its sleek panel-loading design, I understood right away that the Cyber Port’s function is ease-of-access to electronic devices, not maximum load capacity or even multiple attachment options like other Ospreys. There are three compartments: one main compartment, one small top compartment for keys or a phone (like many Osprey bags offer) and one outside ‘port window’ panel. This last compartment is really two, but since the inner and outer both work in tandem to create a space for a tablet, I’m counting it as one.

OutsideOnline.com – Featuring Variant 52 – January 9, 2014

January 9, 2014

Exercise caution when you look for an inexpensive mountaineering pack. Remember, a well-built pack is going to last a lot longer than a cheap one, and you want to make sure it won’t fail at a crucial moment.But that doesn’t mean there aren’t good options out there that cost less than $250. To help you choose the perfect pack, here are some tips from Outside Buyer’s Guide winter pack tester Ryan Stuart…

Osprey Variant 52

The Osprey Variant 52, like the Alpinisto, will be too small for weeklong alpine mountaineering trips, but if your main concern is versatility, this is the pack for you.

“It can do a lot of things well, if you’re good at packing it correctly,” says Stuart. “It can be a backpacking pack, a mountaineering pack, or a ski pack in the winter.” The Variant is built from super strong 210-denier Cordura and it will accommodate a large range of users since the hip belt comes in four sizes.

    SFGate.com – Featuring Kode 32 – January 2, 2014

    January 2, 2014

    It’s not practical to bring two backpacks on a trip. When you’re planning a winter adventure that includes carrying your gear from home to your destination, plus getting out into the backcountry, not many packs are rugged enough to do it all. The Osprey Kode 32 pack is the Goldilocks of three backpack sizes that mix simple carry features with winter outdoor needs. The zippered back-panel access (on Kode 22, 32 and 42) to the dry storage and hydration compartment allows you to get to your gear while keeping the anatomically shaped back panel, shoulder straps and hip belt off the ground. Zippered hip belt pockets are easy to access with one hand, and an extra-large zipper makes it easy to access the front pocket quickly. Add wide loops and glove-friendly buckles, and backcountry fans can carry their big gear along.
