OutsideOnline.com – Featuring Manta 30 – June 18, 2012

June 18, 2012

Q: The Best Hydration Pack: Hiking

There are dozens of hydration packs out there. Which ones are best for specific activities, such as mountain biking, running marathons, or a weekend hike?

A: On a day hike, you want a hydration pack that carries plenty of liquid, but also has room for all the gear you need—extra clothes and food, first aid kit, headlamp, sunglasses, and so on.

Osprey’s Manta 30 ($149) is just the ticket. First, it’s an excellent hydration pack, with a 100-fluid-ounce bladder that fits against an anatomically contoured plastic sheet so that it rides comfortably. The bladder has a large mouth for easy cleaning and refill, and the drink valve pivots so you can sip from either side.

The Manta also is an excellent daypack. It has a light alloy frame and contoured shoulder straps so it carries well even when jammed full of stuff. And with 1,600 cubic inches of capacity in the small/medium size, there’s plenty of room for gear.

Examiner.com – Osprey Sponsors Breast Cancer Fund’s 13th Annual Climb Against the Odds – June 13, 2012

June 13, 2012

Osprey Packs recently announced their sponsorship of the 2012 Climb Against the Odds, the Breast Cancer Fund’s annual mountaineering expedition for breast cancer prevention.

From June 17 to 23, 2012, a team of up to 27 women who have been touched by cancer will attempt to summit the 14,179-foot Mount Shasta, located in Northern California. As a corporate sponsor, Osprey will be outfitting each team member with an Ariel 65 backpack.

The Breast Cancer Fund – now celebrating its twentieth year – has led 12 successful Climb Against the Odds mountaineering expeditions around the world, and through them has raised millions of dollars to support the organization’s groundbreaking work to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Monies raised through climber sponsorship directly support the organization’s work to translate the growing body of scientific evidence linking breast cancer and environmental exposures into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect health and reduce breast cancer risk.

My favorite pack company, Osprey, is sponsoring the 13th annual Climb Against The Odds expedition which will take place June 17-23. The project will send 27 women, all of whom have been touched by cancer, on a challenging climb up Mt. Shasta, a 4321 meter (14,179 ft) peak located in Northern California.

Climb Against The Odds is actually an event created by the Breast Cancer Fund to raise money and awareness to fight the disease. This will actually be the 13th annual climb, which serves as an inspirational journey for the women who join the trek. Osprey outfits each of the ladies wit its Ariel 65 pack and one of the company’s customer service reps is part of the team and has pledged to raise $10,000 for the cause.

Osprey Packs, Inc., a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs, has announced its sponsorship of MoveShake, a new film series that focuses on individual “movers and shakers” of environmental and social change.

Presented by Osprey, along with Horny Toad and Clif Bar, these films explore the lives of several remarkable people who are following their passion to create positive change in the world, and chronicle the personal struggles and successes that come with their journey.

“This moving series shines a light on some extraordinary people who are truly making a difference in the world,” said Gareth Martins, marketing director of Osprey. “Osprey is proud to sponsor MoveShake and help raise awareness of their causes. We know the films will inspire everyone who watches them.”

Working in Afghanistan, Shannon shares her story of connecting communities on both sides of the equation. Determined to combat apathy, Shannon uses her drive and passion to successfully create positive change for an issue that many assume is hopeless.
