OutdoorGearTV.com – Featuring Tempest 20 – May 4, 2014

May 4, 2014

For those of us who like one day-pack that can do it all, the Osprey Tempest 20 is a great choice. This pack has attachments for a bike helmet and light, ice tool, and trekking poles. The Tempest is very breathable, thanks to Osprey’s Airscape backpanel. Osprey gave the shoulder straps and hip belts just enough padding to provide plenty of comfort, while still maintaining breathability.

Other features that won me over on the Tempest 20 include: The easy to use stow-on-the-go trekking pole attachment, the adjustable torso harness, and the exterior hydration sleeve. The exterior hydration sleeve makes refilling you hydration bladder easier and faster…

OutdoorGearTV.com – Featuring Raptor 14 – June 2013

June 4, 2013
Osprey never ceases to amaze me. This little pack is full of innovative features, provides a stable fit and only weights in at 1 lb 10 oz. One of the first things I noticed about this bag was the direct access zip. It’s such a quick and simple way to load and secure a hydration system, and to top it off, they’ve added a magnetic clip to the bite valve to ensure it’s right where you want it. One of my favorite features ended up being the roll out tool pouch that zips into the bottom of the pack. Anybody that owns a bike knows that they break down, and it’s really nice to not have to dig through your pack to get tools. The tool pouch is even detachable, so you can just lay it next to your bike while you’re doing the repairs. The shoulder straps and hip belts are thin, and provide just enough support without making you feel sweaty. The Hydraulics 3 Liter Reservoir that came with this bag has a nice rigid back, a handle for easy filling, and a nice wide bite valve to suck down a ton of water. While it was difficult to clean, it features an antimicrobial formula to fend off mold and bacteria, and I never had an issue with performance during testing. This pack could also be compatible with other hydration systems of your choice.

PROS – This was my favorite episode to date. I got to test this pack in the Wasach Mountains of Utah. We hiked up Maybird Canyon to the base of Mt Pffierhorn. This pack performed great. It is very well made for back country day trips in the winter. I had my board strapped on the outside and it carried very good. Cool features include: Camel Back Insulation, Fleece Lined Goggle compartment, Helmet Net, Belt Pockets. The straps that carry your board are reinforced. All the zippers have bungee cord to be easily used with gloves.

CONS – I can not find ANY!
