May 11th through May 15th is National Bike to Work Week 2015. It is an opportunity to celebrate the power of the bicycle, the many benefits it provides, the packs that make bike commuting fun and, best of all, a chance to win a CLIF Bar prize pack!

For packs, I love the Osprey Momentum . This is an Osprey product so there’s no question on its comfort or functionality.

Another great pack from Osprey making the lineup is the Spin 32 . It comes in two sizes and the reason I like this pack is because it has zippered side pockets that you can actually access without completely taking the pack off.

ABC10Up.com – Groundbreaking Technology Revolutionizes Backpacks – May 11, 2015

May 11, 2015

With summertime just around the corner, many U.P. residents will be heading outdoors to spend some time admiring Mother Nature.

For those people who intend to spend their days living out of a backpack, it’s important to have the right ‘pack’ on your ‘back.’ Backpacks come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and prices. In the end, the most important thing to do when buying a backpack is making sure that it fits your body properly.

“We have a special way to measure everyone that comes in to give them the proper size and then we can start looking at different Osprey products,” said Luke Olson of Osprey Packs. “We do have a product for everyone, but the most important thing that we emphasize is how the backpack fits. We want to make sure that it’s properly fit for every person that walks out the door.”

920x920

There’s no need for women to borrow a guy friend’s backpack for a trip when women-specific backpacks are a better choice for lightening the load while remaining comfortable. The Osprey Aura AG Backpack incorporates a seamless, ventilated suspension system that helps provide stable load transfer while also remaining comfortable. An adjustable harness allows you to change the torso length of the pack easily, and a Fit-on-the-Fly hip belt extends to accommodate different hip sizes. Packs come in 50-liter and 65-liter sizes, so you choose the one that fits your outdoor style best. The zippered sleeping bag compartment has a drop-down divider, providing easy access to contents. That comes in handy when you remember that your flask is at the bottom.

IndefinitelyWild.Gizmodo.com – Featuring Rev 12 – May 7, 2015

I have worn it in the shown configuration and it’s doable. You tuck the backup battery in to your pack, in this case I was wearing the Osprey Rev 12 running pack, and let the cord dangle from your wrist. It’s not pretty, but you can definitely tell that the engineers who designed this actually thought about this problem and came up with a reasonable solution that no other brand has accomplished as cleanly.

OutsideOnline.com – Featuring Escapist 25 – May 4, 2015

May 4, 2015

n a typical year, Victor, Idaho-based Jay Petervary, or JayP as he’s known, will pedal over 10,000 miles of snow-packed roads and trail, singletrack, and dirt roads. Of those miles, 6,000 of them come from racing in such formidable sufferfests as the 1,000-mile Iditarod Trail in Alaska (which he won in a sprint finish last February), the 750-mile Arizona Trail race (first place, last April) and the 2,800-mile Tour Divide from Canada to Mexico (broke the speed record for that route last fall)…

Obviously, what JayP carries depends on the particulars of a race, but the following essential gear almost always makes the cut.

Osprey Packs
Over the years, JayP has acquired an arsenal of custom-fitted frame bags for a variety of frame types and needs, but his tried-and-true approach to packing his bike remains nearly constant. “You want your heavy stuff in the frame pack, where it’s down low. So that can be a full water bladder, tools and spare parts. Clothes go in my rear seat bag. My sleep system: sleeping bag, pad, get strapped on my handlebars. I’ll put my food in a top-tube bag where it’s easy to reach.” And then there’s the pack on his back. On overnight trips, he shoulders the Escapist 25, counting on its easy-to-reach compression straps to keep his gear tight as the internal water bladder empties out during his ride. “I usually run water bottles on my frame for longer rides, but when I do ride with a hydration pack, I like Ospreys,” he says. “I love their bladder system and bite valve, and the way they fit.”
