Thinking about buying a new backpack, tent, boots, or other outdoor gear or apparel? I recently spent a couple of days wandering the floor of The Salt Palace in Salt Lake City—a convention center you could fit a few Wal-Marts inside—at the Outdoor Retailer Show, ogling the best of the new products for hiking and backpacking that will hit stores in 2015…

I’m a fan of the Osprey Atmos packs, and for 2015 the pack maker updates the series with a unique, lightweight mesh suspension that wraps around the hips and torso like a sock on your foot. True to the Atmos and Aura pedigree, the peripheral-wire frame is built for loads of 50 pounds or more…

As a father of two young backpackers, I understand the challenge of finding kids’ packs that fit well and are comfortable—especially on smaller, skinny kids age nine to 11. So I’m eager to have my kids test drive the new Osprey Ace 38 (2 lbs. 6 oz., for ages 10 to 14), Ace 50 (2 lbs. 15 oz., for ages 11 to 16), and Ace 75 (3 lbs. 9 oz., for ages 12 to 17)…

Osprey has done it again – the company that pretty much revolutionizes backpack design on an annual basis turned heads at their Outdoor Retailer booth with a pack that defies gravity.

The Atmos and Aura packs are not new to the Osprey lineup, but what they did to those packs for their 4th generation, well, you need to see it to understand. Simply put, the packs have a 3D contoured suspension that they dub “Anti-Gravity.” According to Osprey, it’s a light, body-contouring suspension “that allows the user to move as if they don’t have a pack on – true anti-gravity realized.”

Hydration is critical on hot-weather runs, and this lightweight, minimalist hydration pack makes it easy when you’re running on trails. It features a 1.5-liter reservoir as well as a mesh backpanel that’s soft and breathable in hot temps. Our other favorite feature is the DigiFlip media pocket, a weather-protected panel on one of the straps that gives you easy access to your smart phone without messing it up with sweaty fingers.

For the Trail: Osprey Escapist 30 Backpack
If you’re the kind of cyclist who loves conquering long stretches of singletrack and carrying a hearty load of gear, the Escapist 30 hits the sweet spot. As our tester noted, it’s not the lightest daypack on the market, but a variety of bike tool-specific pockets, a rain fly, a helmet attach system, and an overall durable construction work well, especially for long-haul city-to-trail riding and hut-to-hut trips.

Every summer and winter, the biggest outdoor brands (and a few up-and-comers) gather in Salt Lake City to showcase their new gear and technical innovations for the upcoming year.

Here are some of the greatest hits from Colorado companies like Osprey and Nite Ize—plus, a few standouts from some boutique brands. (…)

The family that hydrates together, plays together. Colorado company Osprey is introducing a new line of (adorable) hydration packs in Spring 2015 for little ones as young as three.

ELEMENT.LY – Featuring Aura AG 65 – August 12, 2014

“Revolutionize” is a word we like to stay away from. But it’s appropriate here because Osprey has indeed revolutionized the pack with their new Anti-Gravity Suspension system, featured in the Atmos AG and Aura AG.

What the company has done is build a suspension system that literally wraps around your body like someone hugging you. Instead of having to make tons of adjustments to get the pack to conform to your body, this suspension system does it for you. You still have to adjust some straps for the perfect fit, but we’ve never used a pack that felt so comfortable, right from the start…

Salt Lake City holds the world’s largest outdoor industry gathering each August and January, it’s called the Outdoor Retailer Market. This year they had an impressive 1,595 exhibitors occupying 545,684 square feet. With over 27,000 attendees, it sometimes feels like navigating a street market in Bangkok rather than a trade show. We spent a few days learning about the newest product innovations said to hit the market in the upcoming year. Here’s a few new products that stood out to us…

The Osprey Atmos and Aura 65 will soon be getting new suspension. It’s called AntiGravity (AG) suspension. Its one of those innovations that makes you say, “How come nobody else thought of that?” Osprey’s Fit-on-the-Fly hip belt and adjustable back panel will not be changing, but the new AG back panel is promised to have an even better fit and reduce hotspots because the mesh is constructed from one piece. We look forward to testing it out.
