Whether it’s wrongly taken off the baggage claim or loaded on an incorrect flight, losing a checked bag is an occupational hazard for frequent fliers, which is why most carry their personal affects on instead. For the seasoned traveler, a carry-on bag needs to hold a few changes of clothes, maybe an extra pair of shoes, have pockets for mid-journey access, and meet the requirements for fitting in an overhead compartment (typically 22 x 14 x 9 inches). Every one of these soft-sided carry-ons meets these criteria…

Osprey Packs Ozone 22 Carry-On Bag:
Osprey is no stranger to making packs and bags for seasoned travelers. Their Ozone 22 weights 6 pounds, is available in two colors (light green, light blue) and comes with an adjustable harness.

OutdoorGearLab.com – Featuring FlapJack Courier – April 3, 2015

As one of the highest scoring bags in the review, the Osprey FlapJack Courier was one of our favorites for taking to coffee shops, work, or just using around town. It has some excellent features and superb organization…

We loved the Osprey FlapJack Courier. The sporty style and superb features made it a pleasure to use. It has one of the best laptop compartments in the review and has pockets that are the perfect sizes for all your stuff. It you’re looking for a super great messenger bag at an awesome price, this one kills it. We tested the men’s version that comes in a 20 liter size. Osprey also makes it in a women’s version called the FlapJill in 17 and 9 liter sizes.

AdventureCycling.org – Featuring Rev 18 – April 2015

Osprey_Rev18_1

Rev 18 by Osprey : I tend to always be in a hurry when preparing for recreation so I’m a kitchen-sink kind of guy who keeps a bunch of stuff ready at all times — and that includes when I ride a bike. The Osprey Rev 18 hydration pack allows me to cram into it just about anything I’ll need when I go for a ride.

The Rev 18’s list of features is nearly astounding. Let’s start with storage: a large hydration compartment that can handle up to an 85-oz. reservoir (and it comes with Osprey’s 2.5-liter large-mouth Hydraulics LT version) and features a harness to keep it in place; a massive front pocket that I’ve used to store enough clothing to get me through any winter ride; a quick-access pocket at the top for smaller items like tire levers; a pocket on each side of the waist belt for even smaller items that you want quick access to from the front; and pockets on each shoulder strap for even quicker access to items like a mobile phone — and all are zippered except for those on the shoulder strap. If that amount of storage isn’t enough, the front panel features a looping bungee cord so you can fasten more stuff to it. Who needs panniers?

BCTreks.com – Featuring Kode ABS Compatible 42 – April 2015

April 1, 2015

For over 40 years, Osprey has been raising the standards for backpack comfort, functionality, and innovation. Luckily for us, Osprey has also been catering to the backcountry travelers that prefer to wear avalanche airbag backpacks. The technology has transformed and improved in the past few years and avy packs are becoming an essential piece of equipment for backcountry travel.

Tyson and I recently upgraded our avy backpacks and each got ABS Vario Base Units. Our favorite feature about the ABS bags is the fact that you can get different size zip-ons but only have one airbag deployment system…

That’s where the Kode 42 by Osprey comes in to play for us. It is ABS compatible so just like the ABS zip-ons, the Kode has an identical zipper on the back panel that attaches the Kode to your ABS system. What’s even sweeter than the Kode attaching to your ABS is the fact that while the Kode is ABS compatible, it also comes with it’s own zip-on straps and comfortable back panel…
