13 Amazing Finds from the 2016 Winter Outdoor Retailer Show

A rolling bag with a built in backpack harness, the Sojourn is the ultimate adventure travel solution. The carry system stores away when you don’t need it and when you do, it’s actually comfortable — Osprey uses the same suspension as in its dedicated backpacks. And when you’re loading it into a bus, boat, or rickshaw, a multitude of handles lets you sling it where you need it. In 45, 60 and 80 liter sizes.

MensJournal.com – Featuring Zealot 15 – July 2015

July 1, 2015
298_298_best-for-mountain-biking-packs-for-all-pursuits

These small, lightweight backpacks are comfortable and highly durable, with just enough storage for a day’s activity. From bags that are ideal for mountain bikers to those that are fit for photographers or hikers, this group will take any excursion to the next level.

Osprey Zealot 15
For one long ride, we stashed a day’s worth of gear in the Zealot’s main pocket and sucked water from the three-liter bladder. On rocky descents, the pack stayed glued to our back and the hydration hose didn’t bounce — it locks onto a magnet. And when we got a flat, we opened the dedicated repair sleeve, which kept our tools, spare tube, and pump organized.

MensJournal.com – Featuring Raptor 14 – May 2015

The right mountain bike gear can make or break your day on the trails. These five items will ensure you’re comfortable and safe for hours of singletrack adventures.

A long day in the saddle means bringing extra gear and water; the Osprey Raptor 14 hydration pack can handle it all. The 3-liter reservoir means less time searching for water instead of the next trailhead. Zippered hip-belt pockets allow you to grab a gel on the go, while two inside zippered mesh pockets are ideal for storing your multi-tool and CO2 inflator. A large pocket with compression straps is ideal for stashing a jacket or some arm warmers.

 

MensJournal.com – Featuring Contrail 28 – March 2015

298_298_osprey-contrail-28-best-rolling-suitcases

If you’re looking to invest in new luggage, consider where you’re most often headed. Are you an extreme hiker headed to scale your next peak, or typically off to Silicon Valley to pitch your next start-up? The bag you bring should suit your needs, and these days, there’s a sophisticated and sturdy option for everyone. Here are high-tech rolling suitcases for serious travelers…

Osprey Contrail 28: One of the most thoughtfully designed pieces here, the light, 75-liter Contrail works hard to be a traveler’s total package, featuring such smart, removable built-ins as a two-sided organizer and a hang-up laundry bag. The build is tough, thanks in part to skid plates and padded grab handles.

MensJournal.com – Featuring Viper 13 – March 2015

Whether it is an hour-long sojourn during your lunch break or a once-in-a-lifetime backpacking trip, the right gear will make it that much more pleasant — as well as safe. Here are five essentials to ensure an excellent adventure.

Osprey Viper 13: To stay properly hydrated and fully functional you need to drink a half-gallon of water a day, even more when you are active. The best way to ensure you drink enough (and just about anything else you need while out on the trail) is a hydration pack. The 3-liter reservoir inside this pack will supply you with enough liquid for a nice long hike and, better yet the quick-bite valve from the water hose magnetically attaches to the chest strap to stay out of your way…

 

MensJournal.com – Featuring Atmos AG 65 – February 2015

February 1, 2015

298_298_backpack-everything-to-pack-for-a-backpacking-tripThe old external frame pack is experiencing a comeback thanks to a resurgence in retro style, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good choice — unless you need to shoulder a 60-pound pack because you’re a hunter who is hauling out an elk. Otherwise, stick to the standard internal frame backpacks, which are lighter and more comfortable. Look for one that’s ventilated, like the Osprey Atmos AG, which also employs a body-contouring suspension that allows you to move more naturally with the pack on…

MensJournal.com – Featuring Xenith 75 – November 2014

November 1, 2014

298_298_osprey-xenith-backpack-denali-gearExpedition backpacks — those in the 90-110 liter range, capable of handling loads up to 70lbs, are very specialized. One problem with a pack this size is how much it can weigh before you’ve even put anything in it; the other is how few occasions require so much carrying capacity. The Osprey Xenith is one of the lightest “big” packs out there (starting at just 5 lbs, 3 oz with the 75 model) but it also happens to be the best fitting, with a suspension and hip belt system that are comfortable right off the rack and with a maximum load. The Xenith resembles other packs Osprey has had in its line since the early 1990s, but is actually only a year old…

The Best Bikes and Gear We Saw at Interbike 2014

Osprey Syncro 3: This sub-1 pound pack has everything you need for comfort and proper hydration when commuting or trail riding, with nothing extra.

The pack holds a 2.5-liter reservoir, with enough room for a jacket, multitool, and tube, and snack in the front organizer pocket. The internal zip pocket keeps track of your car key. Commuting? Slip your helmet onto the carry clip when you get to work.
