GearPatrol.com – Featuring: Rev 24 – May 24, 2014

May 24, 2014

Best Pack for Long Hauls: As advocates of the run-commute, we’ve jogged between A and B with a day’s worth of gear in everything from a Goruck GR2 to a Rapha cycling backpack — anything in a pinch. The Osprey Rev series is geared toward runners with one of the most comfortable harness and belt systems (called “Biostretch”) and lots of convenient features like an easily accessible media pocket on the chest harness and a reservoir with baffles (like a sleeping bag) to help minimize water sloshing. The 24 is the biggest version, carrying 2.5 liters of water with enough extra room for a change of clothes or miscellaneous gear for a day of trail running or hiking.

SpotCoolStuff.com – Featuring Exos Series – May 24, 2014

May 24, 2014

As our regular readers know, when Spot Cool Stuff travels we’re fanatical about using lightweight luggage. Because why lug around a heavy bag when you can choose an equally good light one?

Several luggage companies offer one or two lightweight models. But no one offers more high quality yet lightweight bags and backpacks than Osprey.

Previously, we reviewed the Osprey Ozone, the lightest full-size wheeled carry-on bag on the market today. Though, in addition to being made of lightweight materials and being cleverly designed, the Ozone cuts down on the pounds by cutting down on the features.

So, when we received our review unit of Osprey’s Exos backpack we expected that it too would be both lightweight and largely devoid of features. We were wrong…

TheGearCaster.com – Featuring Exos 58 – May 23, 2014

May 23, 2014

The arrival of spring signals the start of backpacking season. With a couple of quick Sierra trips already under my belt, I look forward to extended backpacking endeavors in both North America and Europe over the summer. Below you will find a few of my backpacking essentials. This list by no means covers everything, but will make a great base to start from for any backpacking adventure…

1. Osprey Exos 58: This backpack is roomy enough to swallow a bear can along with all the other essentials, but light enough (weighs less than 3 lbs) not to add to your burden. Removable straps at the base of the pack come in handy for securing your sleeping pad or even tent if it doesn’t fit inside. As summer backpacking usually brings with it heat, the raised mesh backpanel keeps air circulating across your back. Truly versatile, the removable lid and numerous cinch cords mean the pack can be converted for day hikes around camp. A large front and two mesh side pockets offer up extra storage space for tent poles, water bottles, river crossing shoes, and gas canisters.

Preparation is Key to the Success of Any Adventure …

… and a large part of my preparation for this adventure went into figuring out what pieces of gear I needed to carry with me for 221 miles while keeping my pack weight at or below 30 pounds. Here, then, is my complete John Muir Trail gear list, broken up into somewhat arbitrary categories…

Backpack: Osprey Exos 58. I saw many of these on the trail. Everyone I talked to loved it.

Navigation & Communication: Osprey Map Case. An indulgence, I admit.

Deep in the American West is a chasm so great, crossing it seems out of question to the average tourist peering into its maw. But there’s soul in the Grand Canyon, and those willing to take the plunge will find the beating heart of a beast, not to mention two billion years of geological history. Going “Rim to Rim to Rim” is a double-crossing of the Grand Canyon, covering 42.4 miles and 22,000 feet of vertical, and it’s a rite of passage for ultra runners. In late April I laced up with my friend Erich Owen and ran the trail from mid-morning to dusk…

Trailspace.com – Featuring Rev 6 – May 13, 2014

May 13, 2014

The Osprey Rev 6 day pack is perfect for trail running, day hiking, and mountain bike rides. Though small, this day pack is full of features and conveniences. A definite 5 out of 5 stars.

I was actually surprised by how many features Osprey has packed in to this small day pack. Some features I didn’t even think were valuable to have.

Let’s start with the Magnetic Bite Valve, I was actually geeking-out over this feature. No more wetting my pants or shirt from valve drips! Simply place the Bite Valve near the sternum strap and let the magnet do its work…
