TheWireCutter.com – Featuring Farpoint 55 – May 18, 2016

After spending over two years traveling the world via dozens of planes, trains, cars, and boats, plus testing 11 packs on the backs of five men and five women ranging from 5 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 2 inches tall, we’ve found the best travel backpacks for most nomads: Men (and tall women) will love the Osprey Farpoint 55 M/L and shorter to average-height women will like the highly adjustable REI Grand Tour 80. Both of these bags are big and supportive enough to comfortably carry everything you need to travel across Australia, yet small enough to be manageable navigating the narrow streets of Florence…

We like the Osprey Farpoint 55 M/L because it does most things right and almost nothing wrong. Most of the other packs we considered had one or two serious flaws. The Farpoint 55 M/L delivers on all the core features that travelers find important, but doesn’t overreach to create new problems. It has a great 15-liter daypack that zips onto the back of the 40-liter main pack so you don’t have to deal with carrying two bags when you’re on the go. It also has a zippable cover for the straps so you can check it as luggage without additional hassle from the airlines…

Osprey-Shuttle

Luggage should make traveling as easy as possible. The Osprey Shuttle is packed with travel-friendly features, but it’s not just the abundance; it’s the fact that they come together really well. First off, there’s no shortage of space – so if you just can’t resist that last-minute souvenir, you’ll find a place for it. And thanks to Osprey’s StraightJacket™ compression system, you can compress or expand the load as needed. Then there’s pocketing and compartments to keep everything from dirty laundry to smaller items organized, along with panel access to the main compartment for easy packing and retrieval of gear..

GearPatrol.com – Featuring Variant 52 – May 12, 2016

osprey-gear-patrol-800-768x768

Whether your want to conquer summits or snowboard down from them, being prepared is key. This is especially true in the fringe season of spring. With temperatures rising, the snow caps are receding and what was once hard packed or white and fluffy becomes soft, wet and mushy. But these are the mountains, after all; weather patterns change quickly and the winds are fierce and relentless. That means layering up head to toe with versatile, breathable and water-resistant fabrics, and making sure you’ve got gadgets to gauge conditions and tools to weather any storm.

GearPatrol.com – Featuring Rev 1.5 Hydration Pack – May 7, 2016

ultimate-tri-kit-gear-patrol-run

You don’t have to be an Ironman triathlete to enjoy getting outside to swim, bike and run. Take each discipline by itself — and take it to the far corners of the planet — and then you’ve got three amazing ways to explore dirt roads, mountain trails and coastlines. Still, we approached this kit like a triathlete — which is to say, intensely and with performance and endurance in mind. That means that we’ve focused on apparel that’s lightweight and breathable, safety gear that’s low profile and durable, footwear that can deal with gnarly terrain, hydration systems for the long haul, tech to track your data, a bike for all terrains and a wetsuit that will help you bridge the gap between human and sea creature. Some people call this an off- road triathlon — we just call it vacation.
