SNEWSNet.com – Osprey Athlete Majka Burhardt Announces 2015 Lost Mountain Next Gen Symposium to Build Community Driven Conservation – July 14, 2015

July 14, 2015

Osprey Packs is pleased to announce that Osprey sponsored climber, Majka Burhardt, is traveling to Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique to lead the 2015 Lost Mountain Next Gen Symposium this month. The twelve-day symposium is the brainchild of Burhardt and fellow professional climber Kate Rutherford. The goal is to bring together an international group of university students, scientists, conservation leaders and professional adventurers to launch a conversation on “disruptive” conservation, a new model for building community-driven conservation in some of the world’s most remote and biologically diverse places in the world.

“Osprey supports community-driven environmental education, outreach and dialogue both here and abroad,” said Rob BonDurant, Director of Marketing, Osprey Packs. “Who better than Majka and Kate, two world-class climbers and environmental stewards to inspire and empower our future generation of conservation leaders.”

Adventure-Journal.com – Featuring Escapist 32 – July 7, 2015

Hydration packs have come a long way since 1988, the year that a young EMT named Michael Eidson invented the CamelBak by stuffing a pilfered IV bag into a tube sock and safety-pinning it to his back during a century ride. But while hydration packs are ubiquitous today, anyone who has ever attempted a a multi-day mountain bike trip can attest to their main shortcoming: most of them are too damn small. You can’t, however, say that about Osprey’s Escapist 32, which boasts a load range of 15 to 30 pounds.

The Escapist 32 is designed with mountain bikers in mind and if bikepacking isn’t your thing, it also makes for a great day hiking pack…

TrekTechBlog.com – Featuring Raven 14 – July 7, 2015

The Good: Incredibly well designed and constructed pack made for biking, but perfect for all manner of adventures.

The Bad: Magnets attract metal, which can be found in rocks and dirt.

The Awesome: It’s hydration bladder alone makes the bag purchase worth it.

Thanks a lot Osprey, there is a strong possibility that I might be ruined for all other packs. The Raven has certainly reset my bar. While I might be new to gear in the area of rock climbing or backpacking; mountain biking gear has been something I have used and abused for years. And never have I ever used something this well-organized and well-designed.

These small, lightweight backpacks are comfortable and highly durable, with just enough storage for a day’s activity. From bags that are ideal for mountain bikers to those that are fit for photographers or hikers, this group will take any excursion to the next level.

Osprey Zealot 15
For one long ride, we stashed a day’s worth of gear in the Zealot’s main pocket and sucked water from the three-liter bladder. On rocky descents, the pack stayed glued to our back and the hydration hose didn’t bounce — it locks onto a magnet. And when we got a flat, we opened the dedicated repair sleeve, which kept our tools, spare tube, and pump organized.

GearInstitute.com – Featuring Atmos AG 65 – July 2015

The redesigned Osprey Atmos 65 AG backpack is significantly more comfortable than its predecessor and reaches the pinnacle of comfort for a large backpack. The Atmos 65 AG still has the organizational features of the previous model providing versatility and enhancing comfort all in one package. 

Comfort/Fit
The Atmos 65 AG is as comfortable as any pack I have ever tested. It takes a few extra minutes to dial in all the adjustments on the hip belt and shoulder harness for maximum comfort, but once you get it just right, you will be singing its praises. The pack felt very light and agile and the Anti-Gravity padding and functionality provided amazing comfort…
