Posted below in all its carry goodness is Unpacking “Ultralight” with Mike Pfotenhauer of Osprey Packs by Kat Bauman…

Whether you think ultralight backpacking sounds like hell or vacation, it provides a special dilemma for design minds. Ultralight gear has to be minimal, ergonomic, versatile and very, very light. To get a higher-level industry take on the lightweight challenge I spoke with Mike Pfotenhauer, founder, owner and chief designer of Osprey Packs. Osprey is over four decades old and renowned for innovative, ergonomic and, yes, lightweight pack design. Still independently owned and operated, they’re a leading name in multiple fields of backpacking. When I caught up with Mike he had just gotten back from Southern California – a region he’s required as a Northerner to speak poorly of – where he’d had a nice time hiking around Big Sur. (Don’t tell him I told you.)…

WanderlustandLipstick.com – Featuring Tempest 30 – June 2, 2014

June 2, 2014

Well, it’s about that time of year, folks. Bust out the hiking poles, get on the new trail-runners, actually use that heart rate monitor you’ve bought last month. Wait, you don’t have any of that stuff? You’re in luck. Here’s a few of my favorite new outdoor gear items for the outdoorsy, active gal for summer 2014…

The Tempest series is Osprey’s newest women’s specific fit line of backpacks. With six Tempest models ranging in sizes from 6 liters to 40 liters, I found the Tempest 30 L to be perfect for springtime day hiking.
