It was redesigned with a slimmer profile to keep it closer to the body and away from the arms, to help it function better during extreme trail riding. It comes with their 3-liter Hydraulics reservoir, has dual mesh side pockets, their LidLock helmet attachment, and a padded front sleeve to carry a full faced helmet…

The Syncro now comes in 3, 10 and 15 liter models, and they’re more streamlined and lighter packs then their predecessors. The super light and minimalistic 3 liter versions will be a great pack for those quick rides and races, where only a small amount of gear is needed…

Osprey made some minor changes in their bikepacking Escapist Series of packs. They now have three sizes, with capacities of 18, 25 and 32 liters,…and will come in Sin Black, Indigo Blue, Cayenne Red colors. They have a large main compartment to make it easy to carry and organize gear…

New for this year are two kid specific hydration packs, the Moki and the Hydrojet 15. The packs come with their 1.5 liter Hydraulics LT reservoir, and they’re cut for a younger riders anatomy and torso size…
