The Place: DEN > DCA > EZE > LHR > KEF > CDG > RAK > CMN > DOH > HKG > SYD > MEL > LAX > SFO > LAS > DEN

The Time: Global video shoot for Gray Line Worldwide over 21 days last October-November.

What we Thought: 

Style: Sleek enough to avoid sticking out at a five star hotel, yet outdoorsy enough to work for a ski weekend, the Ozone 22” has clean lines and smart design. But don’t expect bells and whistles. The bag draws little attention and the light grey color scheme allows for quick identification when traveling with other baggage. As I described to a friend, it made me look less dirtbaggish

OnTheSnow.com – Featuring Kode Race 18 – November 23, 2014

Among the most coveted items we reviewed this season, this ski bag is as comprehensively featured as it is lightweight—two typically mutually exclusive value propositions the company managed to squeeze into a single backpack. Technically designed as a randonee racing pack, Osprey’s Kode Race 18 isn’t too techy or expensive to be wasted on resort skiers looking for a super light and great looking pack for their ski day necessities. We also like the unique ski carry and body wrap harness that sets this pack apart in one of the best color combos for gear we’ve seen all season…

OntheSnow.com – Featuring Poco Premium – March 24, 2014

March 24, 2014

Becoming a parent is one of the most-rewarding experiences you can have. However, little ones have a tendency to change your life drastically—making that spontaneous trip up to the mountains for a powder day more elusive. Rather than scrapping the outing, it’s just as easy to incorporate the kids into your mountain adventure… especially with the right equipment.

Check out these four pieces of gear to ensure that your children get to enjoy winter in the mountains as much as you do…

If your outdoor pursuits can’t be accomplished with your child on wheels or skis, then toss them on your back with Osprey’s top-of-the-line child carrier. The Osprey Poco Premium is excellent for day hikes in the mountains, for allowing your little one to take in the sites and sounds of a mountain town music festival or any other light outdoor adventure.

This tricked-out pack comes with a detachable daypack, lightweight changing pad, a drool guard, hydration sleeve and a cell phone pocket on one of the shoulder straps. A host of adjustable straps and suspension make for a comfortable and safe pursuit for both parent and child.

OnTheSnow.com – Featuring Viper 4 – August 10, 2012

August 10, 2012

This attack pack executes its mission perfectly: efficiently deliver fluids to mountain bikers, skiers and trail runners in a compact unit. The internal Osprey Hydraform reservoir holds two liters of water to help you stay hydrated on longer rides and runs. The water hose emerges from the pack atop the shoulder and wraps around the front of the chest. Strong magnets keep the mouthpiece securely fastened to the chest strap so that you’re not constantly searching for the hose. Viper 4 is long and narrow with a low profile so that it doesn’t impede your movements or bounce around even while you’re bombing down rough trails. Storage is minimal with a small heat-embossed stash pocket and shoulder-strap pocket for essential effects like multi-tools and nutrition. Viper 4 includes an outer bungee lacing system to stow extra layers of clothing and the Osprey LidLock attachment to carry your helmet for transport.
