NationalGeographic.com – Featuring Ozone 22 – October 2012

October 10, 2012

Whether you’re checking a bag or stuffing it into an overhead compartment, every ounce counts. And most 22-inch rolling bags—the standard compatible with overheads—weigh seven pounds or more. But Osprey’s Ozone 22 tips the scales at slightly more than half that: four pounds, seven ounces. It feels like helium by comparison. But there’s still plenty of organization, with zippered pockets on the front outside and a rear panel perfect for stashing an iPad. And while the styling isn’t exactly inspired, that’s not such a bad thing. Why call attention to a bag so easily carried away?

Must-Have Gear: Fall/Winter

Lighter, tougher, and smarter—that’s what characterizes this season’s best equipment. Whether it’s an improvement on nature (such as water-resistant down) or more sophisticated use of electronics (such as a headlamp that anticipates your needs), these 24 items are better attuned to keeping you fresher, safer, and happier in the outdoors.

NationalGeographic.com – Featuring Atmos 50 – May 2012

May 21, 2012

One of Osprey’s best loved backpacks, the Atmos 50, has been redesigned around an infinitely adjustable suspension system that lets you perfectly customize the fit and feel of this top-loading, 50-liter weekender. Even on the trail, you can quickly adapt the torso length and adjust how the load carries. The new waist belt is changeable too. There’s an extra layer of foam that slides between the hips and belly button. Slide it back if you want more padding on the hip bones, forward for more cushion in front. Osprey says you can expect the three-pounder to carry up to 40 to 45 pounds comfortably, but that seems overly generous. Plan on 35 and your shoulders will thank you.
