A handful of products caught our eye from initial press announcements and scoops around the Outdoor Retailer show. We’ll be on the trade show floor all week to find the most revolutionary products coming in 2016 and beyond. For now, check out this peek behind the curtain…

GearJunkie.com – Featuring Atmos AG – December 21, 2015

osprey-atmos-ag-111

It’s the end of 2015, and as is our annual tradition a time to look back at the best gear we tested this year. Of the hundreds of products GearJunkie staff and team athletes reviewed and put through the paces these items stood out as some of the best…

Osprey Atmos AG Backpack
The “AG” stands for anti-gravity, and the Osprey Atmos AG does seem to include some magic in its meshy support system. The back panel and harness suspend the pack away from a wearer’s body, adding comfort and breathability. For modest loads, it’s the most comfortable backpack we tested this year.

Buying gifts for campers is easy; there are just so many options. However, if you don’t know camping, it’s easy to stumble into sub-par picks. These quality gifts will make any camper happy.

Youth-Size Packs — Osprey Kids’ Line
Designed to have the same fit and features as adult packs, Osprey offers models for your little hikers aged 5 years and up. Our fleet of mini gear junkies has put the Moki and Ace models to the test with great results and smiles on the trails.

Osprey-Poco-Plus-700x451

He’s really a gear expert and a head buyer at a top online retailer. But we tasked Steven “Leon” Lutz to play Santa’s Helper this season to come up with his favorite holiday gift ideas to make shopping easy.

Osprey Poco Plus child carrier
The Poco Plus has it all; full fit adjustability for mom, dad, or anyone else who might be toting a kid, safety features and fit adjustability for your child, plenty of storage for diapers and other gear, and a built-in sunshade to fend off glare…

GearJunkie.com – Featuring Osprey’s All Mighty Guarantee – October 20, 2015

osprey-warranty-700x467

We’ve been through the warranty process many times, and we have witnessed remarkable service. For this article, we sifted through our memory (and the Internet) for stories of great service and boiled it down to some of the best warranty reputations out there…

Most sock brands won’t go this far. But some other top-tier, no-questions-asked warranties include:

Osprey: Any damage, “whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday.”

GearJunkie.com – Featuring Rev Solo – August 12, 2015

rev-solo-700x369

The Rev Solo from Osprey is the first running-oriented fanny pack I have tested, and I am sold. When headed out on an hour-plus run or hike, I grab a snack, fill the water bottle, put it in the Rev Solo, and am out the door. No extra gear required, it’s the minimalist’s dream.

First Impression: My very first run with it was a 5-miler from my house. It was so comfortable that I forgot I had it on. In fact, it took 15 minutes after I got home until I noticed I was still wearing it…

Where to test: On runs and hikes 1 – 3 hours long where you will need to drink and eat. Here, the Rev fits the bill.

The GearJunkie-sponsored Team YogaSlackers competed in Expedition Alaska, a 7-day adventure race held last month, taking 2nd place overall. It was tough, technical, and remote beyond belief. Here’s the gear that got them through…

Osprey Talon 44 Pack
A big, light-weight backpack to carry a lot of stuff. Alaska was an unusually gear-intensive race, and as such it required a much larger pack than we’re used to racing with.

The Osprey packs we took were light, comfortable, and feature-rich, including ice-axe/trekking pole loops, bedroll straps, a roomy top lid and waist pockets.

Osprey-Atmos-AG-700x531

“The most comfortable backpack I’ve worn yet.” A bold statement for sure, but after testing the recently-released Osprey Atmos AG carrying loads on multiple trips, it’s one I make without reservation.

The Atmos AG is a remarkable pack that literally suspends every strap and weight retention system away from your shoulders, back, and hips. What contacts your body is a thin mesh that hugs close and allows for incredible ventilation while supporting weight evenly over a vast surface area.

We’ve never tested anything like it before, and it really works…
