Trailspace.com – Featuring Daylite – August 23, 2015

August 23, 2015
STEBL

This is a very lightweight pack, easily adjustable for either of the two us of, who are of very different sizes! Best used for short day hikes or winter activities in which a large capacity pack is not required…

This is my fourth (yes, fourth) Osprey pack and it’s another winner. I have 70, 50, and 36 liter packs for different occasions. The Stratos 36 is sweet for all-day hikes, but it’s too large for those quick 2 hour hikes with friends. The Daylite has filled that need very nicely.

Trailspace.com – Featuring Atmos AG 65 – July 21, 2015

July 21, 2015
93501

Combined with Osprey’s modern features like the removable lid, the “Stow-On-The-Go” trekking pole system, and the “Fit-On-The-Fly” hip belt, this pack can satisfy both the seasoned veteran and the beginning backpacker!

Ridge-runners, weekend hikers, and lightweight thru-hikers can all make the most of the versatile Atmos 65 AG backpack. With a truly revolutionary “anti-gravity” (hence the “AG”) design, this ventilated backpack conforms to the wearer’s back, successfully transferring almost all of the pack’s weight to the lower body.

Trailspace.com – Featuring Mira 34 – July 11, 2014

July 11, 2014

I love the mesh back panel, which is like the one on my Osprey Aura 65, for keeping me cool on the long day hikes in town. This is a great pack designed for women that feels great….

The first thing that surprised me on this pack was the size I needed. I got this pack before I got my Aura and was unsure of my Osprey sizing. I got some help at my local store in getting fitted. I ended up with the XS/S.

Once all of the straps were adjusted and hooked together, this pack felt great. I’m heavy chested and the shoulder straps didn’t bother me as some models do. The hips straps really allowed the weight to be held easily. The whole pack was very easy to adjust…

Trailspace.com – Featuring Rev 6 – May 13, 2014

May 13, 2014

The Osprey Rev 6 day pack is perfect for trail running, day hiking, and mountain bike rides. Though small, this day pack is full of features and conveniences. A definite 5 out of 5 stars.

I was actually surprised by how many features Osprey has packed in to this small day pack. Some features I didn’t even think were valuable to have.

Let’s start with the Magnetic Bite Valve, I was actually geeking-out over this feature. No more wetting my pants or shirt from valve drips! Simply place the Bite Valve near the sternum strap and let the magnet do its work…

TrailSpace.com – Featuring Kode ABS – January 23, 2014

January 23, 2014

Pack makers have been busy designing and updating packs for backcountry skiing, randonee racing, summit pushes, and expeditions. Keep moving in winter with seasonal trail runners, hikers, and nano skis. Plus, companies make bars for dogs, fine mountain wear, and merino wool socks, all in America.

Here are some of the outdoor gear highlights from Day 2 of Outdoor Retailer.

Osprey announced several new and updated ski and climb packs for fall 2014. The Kode Race 18 is a 15-ounce pack designed for ski mountaineering. For randonnee racers, it offers diagonal ski carry and removal without taking off the pack, and features a dedicated crampon pouch, skins pocket, and ice tool attachment.

Osprey partnered with avalanche airbag maker ABS for two ABS-compatible backcountry ski packs: the Kode ABS 22+10 and Kode ABS 42. Both packs come with an Osprey back panel that can be removed along with the hipbelt and harness to attach an ABS Vario Base Unit (sold separately). Packs feature an avalanche safety kit pocket with shovel and probe sleeve, diagonal ski carry, vertical front panel and horizontal backpanel snowboard carry, ice tool loop, and helmet carry…

TrailSpace.com – Featuring Exos 46 – November 10, 2013

November 10, 2013

I used this pack for my 2013 Appalachian Trail thru hike, and loved it. For backpackers concerned with minimizing pack weight, and carrying minimal gear, this pack is an excellent choice. Overall a great ultralight pack for multi-day backpacking trips. I would definitely recommend it!

The Exos is a great pack for minimalists going on multi-day hikes. The Exos’s smaller loading capacity makes strategic packing a necessity for the user — not a lot of space for extra knick-knacks.

The Exos doesn’t carry heavier loads as well as some packs, but if you can get your pack weight under 30 lbs, the pack does a good job of distributing the weight.
