If you love the outdoors, then you’ll love this list. From tents to cooksets to sunglasses, it consists of the latest and greatest must-haves for every adventure. You’ll wonder how you every survived without them.

Osprey Manta AG 36
Backpacks will turn you into a sweaty mess after half a mile. But shift the load off your back and bump up the ventilation, and you’ll hardly know it’s there.

That’s Osprey’s strategy for its newest backpack, which includes its Anti-Gravity suspension system that uses a weight-transferring frame to place the load squarely on your hips. This keeps your torso free to flex and move independent of the pack, while a taut mesh panel over the frame provides excellent ventilation, as well.

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service here in the U.S. To celebrate, Osprey Packs, which is an official partner of the National Park Foundation, has released two special edition backpacks that commemorate this important milestone, with proceeds going to support that important organization.

The larger of these two packs is the National Park Service Kestrel 32, which is available exclusively at REI.  It features Osprey’s very own LightWire suspension system for carrying heavy loads with ease, a large main compartment for hauling lots of gear, and front panel access that gives you the ability to find all of your important items quickly and easily.

The other special edition pack is the National Park Foundation Trip 20, which can only be purchased from Osprey.com. This bag is built for light and fast hiking, peak bagging, or other excursions where weight is a consideration.

We think it’s great that Osprey is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our National Park Service this summer with this sweet little pack, the Osprey Trip. Osprey has tagged it as a “hiking” pack, but we find it to be a perfect light pack for multi-pitch rock climbs.  It’s low profile enough to easily fit in a larger pack if you hiking in a ways with all your kit, but also carries well enough to pack the rack, shoes, harness inside for shorter approaches. Doubling for a great day hiking pack, this a great addition to your pack quiver.

The Trip 20 is a minimalist top loader with no bells and whistles.  It has a comfortable back panel that moves air well with light mesh shoulder straps that allow uninhibited climbing and movement.  The simple hydration system works well and a small zippered lids stows essentials for easy access…

This spring Osprey’s award-winning “anti-gravity” (or AG) backpack harnessing system graduates from expedition-sized packs to the daypack, and nothing is lost in the transition. The lightweight frame, mesh back panel, stretchy shoulder harness and mesh hipbelt distributes the weight of pack evenly, providing unmatched dexterity while hiking. Dual compression straps help stabilize—and at 28 liters, you’ll use that feature unless you like to carry a lot of stuff. It also boasts a removable rain fly, zippered pockets at the hip, a direct-access hydration compartment, internal mesh organizational pockets, and a large zippered front panel. The three-dimensional construct of the harness makes it tricky to stash and forget it while on a plane, train or bus, but it’s ideal for intrepid hikers looking to haul some comforts into the backcountry.

The backpack you travel with can make or break a trip. If you pick the wrong one, you could end up with a permanently aching back, wasting time on packing and unpacking, and even end up having your things stolen. Deciding which pack to go with is a tough decision, I know, but it’s one that I can hopefully make much easier.

After five years of full-time travel, I consider myself to be pretty experienced with backpacks. I now know whether it’s best for you to get a front- or top-loading backpack, what size bag is perfect for you, and which features you’ll want to make sure are included.

After much research, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Osprey Farpoint 70l backpack is the best travel backpack out there, and I couldn’t imagine using anything else. Here’s why I love it.
