SnowShoeMag.com – Featuring Osprey FW 12 at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market – January 23, 2012

January 23, 2012

Osprey’s focus this coming year is to reintroduce their travel line which features clean lines and their trademark organization options. They also lightened up their Kestrel pack, which reigns supreme in the realm of ‘quiver of one pack’ in your hall closet.

Additionally, Osprey is rolling out a few new options including a series called Synchro. This pack will give ventilation across the back in the form of a hydration pack. A simple hip belt will keep it in place. Seems Osprey had the bike commuter in mind when they created the Synchro. They will be introducing the Carve, their next foray into a backcountry ski pack. It will come in three torso sizing options and include an insulated hydration sleeve, an external carry of the shovel handle with probe while the shovel blade gets stored inside, a diagonal ski carry, and Osprey’s signature organization. http://www.ospreypacks.com/.

TheGearCaster.com – Featuring Karve Series – January 22, 2012

January 22, 2012

The new Karve Series from Osprey includes three low profile packs built especially for side country adventures. For those of you looking to ride, the day packs can accommodate your skis, snowboard, and avalanche safety equipment, with insulated hydration and ample storage space for all other winter side country sports.

I took a Karve 11 side country backpack with me to Colorado for use when snow shoeing and multi-pitch ice climbing. The thermoformed back panel and EVA foam harness with adjustable sternum straps make the pack light and comfortable to wear all day. The sternum strap buckle integrates a whistle in case of emergency, while the minimalist hip belt can be neatly tucked behind your back if not required.
