TalkingTreads.com – Featuring Viper 10 – December 18, 2011

December 18, 2011

I’ve had quite a few hydration packs over the years. Most of the time, I wore the old one out (or got tired of the leaks) and bought a new one that had a couple new features and was maybe a little bit nicer. They held my water and tools and food without complaint. One of them even did a little extra duty as a pillow during a fateful night-riding incident. But that’s a different review…

So when Kurt said he had a new pack for me to review I was expected something little bit better and maybe a little bit nicer than my current pack. This one is A LOT better and A LOT nicer than my current pack. In fact, I’m pretty sure this one is much better in every regard.

Gadling.com – Featuring Waypoint 65 – November 29, 2011

December 12, 2011

The last thing you want on any camping trip is too many things to carry. Anytime that you can consolidate items and find multiple purposes for your gear, you’re making your life easier. That’s why we love Osprey’s two-in-one travel pack and daypack combo, the Waypoint 65. Pack your clothes and extra layers in the 50L main pack and your gear for daytime activities in the 15L daypack. The packs zip and clip together for easy transport and detach when the time is right. Like most Osprey packs, the Waypoint 65 is gender specific, so the female camper in your life can get a pack made for women. As a bonus, the Waypoint 65 is perfect for travel, as well, so it’s not just for camping. Available in multiple sizes to fit any torso, the Waypoint 65 starts at $231, which is a great deal for two packs, one of which works as a piece of luggage.

Gorp.com – Featuring Exos 34 – November 1st, 2011

December 12, 2011

When backpacking, comfort is king—and comfort often comes down to two things: weight and fit. And the Exos 34 wears the crown as one of the best packs on the market. The innovative trampoline back plays a big part in this regal distinction. It employs twin support poles that run on either side of the pack, creating a massive gap of air between the pack and your back. As a result the thing breathes better than a marathon runner, adds a bit of bounce to the overall feel, and won’t chaff if you happen to load the pack over the bag’s recommended capacity.

ReadAboutGear.com – Featuring Aether 70 – December 7, 2011

December 7, 2011

I received this pack in September and although I have not used it extensively yet I love it. The main trip I used it on was my trip to Capitol Reef National Park. We weren’t backpacking on this trip but it was my main pack for the trip. I was able to store away everything I needed for the cold winter excursion. I even was able to stick in my large 35 L daypack inside. This pack carried the heavy load very comfortably, I love this pack’s adjustability, make it comfortable to everyone personally. The sleeping bag compartment is awesome, I love the wide mouth access, it makes it incredibly easy to get your gear out. The top access is incredibly wide also, which is wonderful. I really like the remove able top loader; it makes a great hip pack for short hikes where you don’t have to carry much.

I plan on going on some more extensive trips to test this pack out to it’s fullest extent, maybe go on a nice snowshoe trip over the holiday.

From what I have experienced so far I would totally recommend this pack to someone who is going on long backpacking trips or for some one who just needs lots of room for all their gear when on backpacking trips. It is incredibly comfortable, easily custom adjusted, and very well built.
