WomensAdventureMagazine.com – Featuring Poco Series – October 25, 2013

October 25, 2013

One of the best things about moving from an Ergo or Moby-style carrier to the Osprey Poco has been that my husband WILL wear our son in the Osprey. Without Mom’s female-specific ‘cushioning’, our son’s not as happy riding in the smaller carriers. Plus, my husband sweats a ton and has passed on this trait to our son. Even when Rowan is sitting on Dad’s back, the pair of them end up looking like they just emerged from a Russian banya.

If your baby can sit unassisted and has good neck strength (ask your pediatrician if you’re unsure), maybe its time for you to upgrade to something like the Poco. We chose the Poco because we’re Osprey fan-boys (or an Osprey fan-family?) – Osprey consistently makes great products that are environmentally-friendly.  The Poco has enabled us to get back on the trails, and our son seems to love the adventure of being outside with a great bird’s eye view of the terrain and Mom and Dad.

ActiveJunky.com – Featuring Escapist 20 Pack – October 23, 2013

October 23, 2013

Spend one hour in the saddle using the wrong gear, and you may never climb on your mountain bike again. A few essentials—gloves, a helmet, clothes that can get dirty, and a good dose of courage and stamina—can make all the difference. The below five fat-tire friendly products rise to the fore as some of the most essential gear for all manner of mountain biking, from downhill plummets to free-ride acrobatics to quad-punishing cross-country rides.

The perfect mountain biking pack almost defies description: you want something that’s svelte and low-profile so you don’t feel off-balance while swinging through singletrack. But you need something that can carry your tools, food, layers, and oddball sundries. No pack has achieved that Platonic ideal quite yet, but Osprey’s Escapist 20 comes damn close.  The panel-loading backpack boasts a breathable ventilated harness, with a mesh hip belt, a hydration sleeve, twin water bottle mesh pockets, and a discrete, stowable rain cover. Inside the front panel, you find a cache of storage options that cater to bike tools, while the main compartment offers cavernous storage for the bigger items like a jacket or vest. As with most cycle-specific Osprey packs, the Escapist has also been outfitted with a LiftLock helmet attachment (which slips through the helmet’s vents to be easily carried) and a strap for clipping on a flashing light—features that make this pack ideal for commuting as well as mountain biking.

OutdoorGearLab.com – Featuring Ozone Convertible 22″ – October 21, 2013

October 21, 2013

For this review, we tested four bags that convert from rolling bags into backpacks and three bags that had detachable day packs, including the Osprey Meridian Wheeled Convertible Luggage – 22”, the Patagonia MLC Wheelie, the REI Stratocruiser Wheeled Luggage – 22”, and the Osprey Ozone. Although we aren’t wholly convinced that convertible carry-ons are all that useful (see our buying advice guide: How to Choose Carry-on Luggage for a full discussion), we wanted to highlight the highest performing piece in this category with a Top Pick Award. We chose to give this award to the Osprey Ozone. Although this bag does not have the largest internal capacity, its detachable day pack design and convertible backpack features are more fine-tuned than its competitors. Moreover, it is remarkably light: without the day pack, this bag weighs in at 4 lbs 12 oz, which is a full pound lighter than most of the other carry-ons in this review…

GearInstitute.com – Featuring Exos Series – October 20, 2013

October 20, 2013

Osprey’s Exos has long ranked as a personal favorite among our team—a fast-packing weekend pack that shaves weight with every feature, but has a suspension that handles even heavy and poorly packed weekend loads. Osprey‘s Ultra-Light Exos updates the old model (introduced in 2008) by refining its innovative Superlight AirSpeed suspension, which employs a trampoline-like mesh back panel and a light, half-internal frame that runs parallel to your back. The company has also paired it with a new “Exoform” harness and hipbelt, which work together to dramatically improve the pack’s comfort and support.
