920x920

There’s no need for women to borrow a guy friend’s backpack for a trip when women-specific backpacks are a better choice for lightening the load while remaining comfortable. The Osprey Aura AG Backpack incorporates a seamless, ventilated suspension system that helps provide stable load transfer while also remaining comfortable. An adjustable harness allows you to change the torso length of the pack easily, and a Fit-on-the-Fly hip belt extends to accommodate different hip sizes. Packs come in 50-liter and 65-liter sizes, so you choose the one that fits your outdoor style best. The zippered sleeping bag compartment has a drop-down divider, providing easy access to contents. That comes in handy when you remember that your flask is at the bottom.

SFGate.com – Featuring Kode 32 and Ozone Series – November 26, 2014

November 26, 2014

920x9202The Osprey Kode 32 pack is the Goldilocks ideal of three backpack sizes that mix simple carry features with winter outdoor needs. The zippered back-panel access (on Kode 22, 32 and 42) to the dry storage and hydration compartment allows you to get to your gear while keeping the anatomically shaped back panel, shoulder straps and hip belt off the ground. Zippered hip belt pockets are easy to access with one hand, and an extra-large zipper makes it easy to access the front pocket quickly…

920x920The Osprey Ozone line includes carry-on and larger sizes, all with an aluminum frame and light chassis with large wheels to get you over terrain more rugged than the airport parking lot. Plenty of pockets allow you to stash some elements of your gear away from the large main compartment, and three external compression straps help secure the load, whether at full capacity or not. Padded top and side handles, as well as an easy-to-deploy extendable handle, make carrying your stuff on vacation just a little easier…

SFGate.com – Featuring Kode 32 – January 2, 2014

January 2, 2014

It’s not practical to bring two backpacks on a trip. When you’re planning a winter adventure that includes carrying your gear from home to your destination, plus getting out into the backcountry, not many packs are rugged enough to do it all. The Osprey Kode 32 pack is the Goldilocks of three backpack sizes that mix simple carry features with winter outdoor needs. The zippered back-panel access (on Kode 22, 32 and 42) to the dry storage and hydration compartment allows you to get to your gear while keeping the anatomically shaped back panel, shoulder straps and hip belt off the ground. Zippered hip belt pockets are easy to access with one hand, and an extra-large zipper makes it easy to access the front pocket quickly. Add wide loops and glove-friendly buckles, and backcountry fans can carry their big gear along.
