The Syncro 3 hydration pack was my first experience with Osprey, and I was super impressed by the smart, well-thought-out details on this pack.

The Syncro 3 is new this spring, and it fills a much-needed role in my bag repertoire: For most of my hourlong, weekday trail rides, wearing a full-on hydration pack feels like overkill.

Here are the companies and the gear that got me through it and the 14 things I learned:

10. Bring the right bags. Everyone climbing Kilimanjaro has to let a porter carry his or her duffle bag. I found Osprey’s 130-liter Transporter bag (above) to be the perfect size.
