AtlantaTrails.com – Featuring FW 15 Shuttle Series and Ozone Series – January 2015

January 1, 2015

Twice a year, the biggest and hottest names in outdoor gear convene in Salt Lake City to showcase innovative outdoor gear & apparel. Here’s our hand-picked favorite gear from the Outdoor Retailer Winter 2015 Show…

Osprey is streamlining their versatile, lightweight Shuttle Series Rolling Duffels in 2015. Padded sidewalls and StraightJacket compression straps provide gear protection and stability during travel. And sealed bearing wheels provide smooth rolling transportation under heavy loads, making the Shuttle duffels both airport and adventure-friendly…

We were equally impressed by the Osprey Ozone, a packaged duo of bags. The Ozone duo combines into a single ultralight roller bag for in-airport transport, and separates into a rolling suitcase and a day pack for in-destination exploration. The Ozone’s retractible handle and smooth-rolling wheels make in-airport bag transportation a breeze, and the removable backpack offers carry-on convenience and on-trail gear storage for daytime adventures.

AtlantaTrails.com – Featuring Aether 60 – October 2014

October 1, 2014

Close access to fantastic hiking, running and backpacking trails is one of the things I love most about Atlanta. From in-town hikes to remote mountain trails, like the southern end of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia, outdoor adventures are within easy reach of Atlanta’s limits…

What to pack on a backpacking trip? My backpacking gear list is focused on my favorite gear that’s useful, small and lightweight – and has been tested over hundreds of trail miles…

I’ve hiked with an older-model Osprey Aether 70 for the past ten years, and love its roomy storage capacity, comfort and durability. This summer, I upgraded to the recently-updated Osprey Aether 60 backpack, though, and love the newer pack’s padding, suspension and easy-access storage. I also pack an Osprey UL Raincover to keep my backpack and gear dry in case of rain…

AtlantaTrails.com – Featuring Stratos 24 – August 2014

August 1, 2014

Avid hikers, backpackers, and cyclists, we’ve long been fans of Osprey’s backpacks, and the Stratos 24 marks the fourth bag in our backpack collection from Colorado-based Osprey. Long-time fans of Osprey’s design, durability, fit and comfort, we’re equally impressed by the Osprey Stratos 24 and women’s Osprey Sirrus 24 – and in love with their innovative breathability.

In Georgia’s warm, humid climate, airy backpack ventilation is something I’ve longed for on the trail. The coverage of most backpacks leaves puddles of sweat on my back, which is equally uncomfortable and chilly when temperatures drop later in the day. The Osprey Stratos 24 combines a curved, lightweight aluminum frame with an open, perforated back panel, leaving space for a ton of airflow between the pack and my back. The result? An incredible amount of ventilation…
