Padded Organizer

When you’re traveling by bike, it’s advantageous to keep your gear and personal items as organized as possible. The Osprey Ultralight Roll Organizer is great for your personal items. It unrolls and can be hung by its hook allowing access to two mesh zippered pockets (one of which contains an attached mirror), two zippered micro pockets, and the main cargo compartment. The Roll’s dimensions are 15 x 6 x 3 in., it’s constructed of 40D ripstop nylon, and, unburdened, weighs 4.4 oz.

The Padded Organizer can also be used for personal items but I’ve been using it to store my ever-growing collection of “necessary” items like my iPod, a spare charger, a light, a mini pump, spare tube, mini speaker, bottle opener, corkscrew … you get the gist…

Frommers.com – Featuring Osprey’s All Mighty Guarantee – November 2015

Osprey
Its All Mighty Guarantee is one of the best promises in the business: “Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge—whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday.”
…Like all of the luggage manufacturers in this slideshow, it will accept damaged luggage by mail (with some brands, you can charge postage back to them—depending where you live, there may be a store where you can drop it off), and if it can’t be fixed, a new piece will be shipped to you at no cost. If your bag style has been retired, which happens often in the ever-changing luggage universe, you will receive the closest analog from its current line.

It’s that time of year again, when you’re looking for the right gift for a special person—or maybe you want to give a special someone the right suggestions for a gift for you. Either way, check out my annual list of 25 favorite new pieces of outdoor gear and apparel, with links to my original reviews of these jackets, packs, boots, tents, and other gear.

The biggest innovation to emerge in backpacks in 2015—and the most-read gear review at this blog for months (so apparently a lot of backpackers were interested in these new packs)—was the Anti-Gravity suspension in Osprey’s Atmos AG series for men and Aura AG series for women. See my review of the Osprey Atmos AG 65 and Aura AG 65

Want your kid to like backpacking? Give her a pack that’s as comfortable as yours with the Osprey Ace kids backpacks, which come in 38L, 50L, and 75L volumes, for young people of all sizes.

In my years-long quest for the lightest stuff sacks that keep extra clothes and other items in my backpack dry (short of complete immersion), I’ve arrived lately at two brands I like: the roll-top Osprey Ultralight Dry Sacks

“The Fall 2016 Sojourn and Meridian Series are designed for travelers who are ready for anything whether they are hitting the street markets of Vietnam, the dirt trail to their cabin in the Scottish Highlands or the long tile roads of their local airport hub,” said Erik Hamerschlag, Senior Product Line Manager “When the terrain gets too rough and there is still far to go, our wheeled bags’ suspension can be deployed to give you the carry-comfort that you expect from Osprey.”
