The Osprey Kode ABS 22+10 is the one ski pack to rule them all, whether you’re a single-planker or a double-planker.

This pack is ready for the POW — get one on your back and you will be, too.

CultofMac.com – Featuring Exos 58 – November 24, 2014

To help you out with your holiday shopping, Cult of Mac waded through the endless lists of camping and hiking gear and gadgets to find the stuff your special someone will love.

Whether you’re looking for something for an adventuring buddy, or picking a present for someone you’d never want to be trapped in a tent with, we’ve found gifts for everyone. From hiking clothes to campsite gadgets, we’ve got you covered…

Osprey’s Exos 58 backpack is an ultralight bag, but don’t let the name fool you — this baby can handle some serious weight. Whether you’re taking it on an overnighter or a four-day excursion, the Exos 58 is up for the challenge, making it one of the most versatile packs I’ve ever hiked with. It offers the best of both worlds, with an airy suspension that’s lightweight, balanced and ridiculously comfortable…

CultofMac.com – Featuring Hydraulics™ Reservoir – September 4, 2014

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.
