ElevationOutdoors.com – Featuring Poco Premium – September 17, 2014

September 17, 2014

In a town that is one of the most active in the country, it’s crucial to remember a few things when striving for your post-baby goals: be kind to yourself, ease into it, and be consistent. Those tips along with the following gear will make your transition back to an active lifestyle, easy, fun, and totally doable…

For more adventurous outings, I highly recommend the Osprey Poco Premium Pack. Osprey is known for their suspension technology that allows for maximum weight and maximum comfort and this pack is no exception. This baby carrier is comfortable, flexible, and versatile and will surely meet the many combinations of outdoor needs that come with introducing your babe to the wilderness. One of the challenges in having a little one is how fast they grow (and thus grow out of everything), so finding a piece of gear that can last a few seasons is a huge plus and the Poco Premium is the kind of pack that can grow with your child…

AdventureCycling.org – Featuring Zealot Series – September 17, 2014

September 17, 2014

North America’s largest cycling tradeshow — flung open its doors to the public for the first time this year, allowing cycling enthusiasts into the hallowed halls for just $10 a head on the final day of last week’s show. Adventure Cycling Association staff members were on hand to man the booth, meet with our many partners and supporters in the industry and, of course, check out the latest and the greatest in the cycling world…

Osprey’s selection of backpacks runs the gamut from tiny race-day-only grab bags to kitchen-sink-carrying behemoths, all with the company’s attention to detail and blessedly trouble-free hydration bladders. But it was the medium-sized Zealot that caught our eye thanks to a few unique features. First, Osprey’s helmet attachment system is so simple and well-functioning it should be standard on all backpacks in the world. Just pop it through a vent and your helmet is securely attached and out of the way when off the bike…

TetonGravity.com – Featuring Zealot – September 16, 2014

September 16, 2014

TGR Contributor Kristen Gross and TGR’s own Jon Grinney plied the tradeshow floors between the carpeted walls, slot machines, and suspect plastic surgery of Las Vegas’ Interbike 2014, pacing miles on velvet from booth to booth, hunting down the latest and greatest in mountain bike gadgetry and even entire mountain bikes!

Kristen winnowed down the tradeshow offering to the most thrilling for next spring, and today’s Best Of gallery features offerings from Rocky Mountain (whose sister rig we tested this summer), Giant, POC, Smith, Giro, Osprey, and Sony, and cajoled Jon into whipping the camera out at every juncture…

Orange is the new black (but you can still get it in black) for this adventure pack aimed at the trail-riding crowd. Available in January 2015, what we loved most about the Zealot is the roll-out tool wallet. So whether you’re out for the day or just a couple hours, you can keep your trail tools organized and ready to go — grab the whole bag, or just slip the detachable pouch in your jersey pocket.

MBAction.com – Featuring Moki, Zealot 15, Escapist Series and Syncro Series – September 11, 2014

September 11, 2014

Osprey’s 2015 lineup wants to make sure the kids are staying just as well hydrated as the parents. The Moki (right) is a small hydration pack designed to fit the much small torso of kids. They won’t be carrying only their water though. It has room for them to carry food, which can be kept organized by interior pockets. The Zealot (second from the left) is offered in a singular 15L size this year – compared to the 10L and 16L sizes last year – after finding it to be the optimal in-between size for all-mountain riders. It’ll be available in atomic orange or carbide grey. The Escapist, now in it’s second year, is deigned with overnight bikepackers in mind. It will be offered in 18L, 25L and 32L size options, and will be available in black, indigo blue, cayenne red. The sleeping bag storage area will now be expanded to being on both the 25L and 32L options.

The Synro line will be available in 15L, 10L and 3L sizes. We’re certainly most excited about the 3L option. Most of our rides are two hours or less, requiring nothing more than some water, CO2 inflator and tube. The Syncro 3 makes it easy with a lightweight pack that doesn’t weigh us down unnecessarily…

The perusing continued on the second day of Outdoor Demo, with still more products to be seen and more gadgets to be photographed…

Osprey Syncro 15
There are plenty of reasons to decide to leave your pack at home. One of those reasons being, “It’s too hot.” But Osprey Packs has implemented a new back panel, Airspeed, with their latest iteration of the Syncro that allows ample airflow through an open-mesh, back-panel system.
