Vagabondish.com – Featuring Pixel Port – November 2013

November 1, 2013

Osprey Packs have been a staple for backpackers since long before the idea for Vagabondish.com was even a twinkle in my eye. And with good reason – their entire line offers rock solid build construction, smart pocket placement, and clever forward-thinking design.

Which is how the company’s latest Portal Series came to be – it’s designed for everyday use by active travelers and commuters.

Osprey was kind enough to send us a sample of the Pixel Port Daypack and we’re loving it already. Features include a well thought-out organization pocket that provides easy access to daily accessories; zippered front flap with a scratch-free electronics/sunglasses pocket; and (the real winner for travelers) an under-flap Port window compartment for instant, protected tablet use without removal from the pack.

Ok, so you have that fancy waterproof case for your iPhone, but what about your iPad, Mr. Mustachioed Fixie Man? Never fear, Osprey’s latest series of commuter bags include a clear protective window that allows you to view and operate that fancy toy while it is still safely inside the pack. The Pixel is also an impressive bag without that bit of tech flair—a comfortable, durable hauler that’s just as at home on a college campus as it is on a day hike.

The Pixel Port is where technology meets the outdoors. This 14 Liter bag fits the new 9.7 inch iPad 5 into its fully touch responsive Port window so you can play Angry Birds on the trail without even taking your tablet out. The Slash Pocket is plenty spacious to store a Note 3 and other tech goodies. Flip the cover and on the inside, you can slide in a 13” laptop, Kindle, and enough pens to last you a semester. It’s perfect for school, short day trips, and showing off some urban/outdoor flair.

The Sea Otter Classic bike festival is taking place this weekend in Monterey, California, and includes four days of road, mountain bike and cyclocross racing, as well as the largest annual bike expo in the United States that’s open to the general public. Over the past few years, Sea Otter has become a must-do event for many companies in the bike industry looking to show off their latest products and offer sneak peeks at what’s to come in the next year. There’s also a smorgasbord of new wares on display, so here’s a look at some of the things that caught our eyes. And don’t worry, there’s plenty more, so look for more Sea Otter coverage soon.

Osprey is in the business of building rugged bags and luggage for camping, hiking and backpacking, but it’s best known in the bike world for its line of hydration packs. And while Osprey has offered up some products for roadies and commuters in the past, it’s gearing up for a big push in the coming year with several different series of packs for a broader range of riders. The Radial (left) will come in 26- or 34-liter capacities at $159 and $169, respectively, and in two sizes to fit both large and small customers. Key features include black or green colors, a padded laptop compartment and Osprey’s signature AirScape shoulder suspension system that allows for increased airflow across the wearer’s back. The Spin (right) comes in just one size, but in two different capacities: 32-liter ($149) and 22-liter ($139).

Osprey’s Portal series is a more fashion-oriented line of packs for commuters. The Pixel (left) will retail for $139 and features a padded laptop compartment, a removable PowerHouse cord organizer, and zippered extensions to increase the overall volume. The Pixel Port (right) is a smaller, sleeker variant of the Pixel that will sell for $119, and it features a large plastic window that provide protection for a tablet/iPad while still giving the user access to it while in transit. Look for all of Osprey’s new products around August.

Make a Human Centipede of Tablets With a See-Through Bag

Buy your entire crew Osprey’s Pixel Port backpack and make a back massaging chain, not for back massaging but for a massive circle where everyone can play Temple Run 2 and not feel so alone. The new backpack has a port and a see-through cover, so you never have to take it out.

The $120 bag (out this summer) is probably better with your friends anyway, because unless you’re a paranoid tourist wearing your knapsack on your front or you’ve been possessed, it would be impossible to reach your tablet while it’s on your back. Think of all the possible ways you could use this tablet tote. You could gather a group to play Kumbaya in unison on a syth app. You could edit a Google doc for a project while your entire group walks to class. Your entire family could stream an episode of Growing Pains while sitting around a camp fire. Sure the intent is so you don’t have to take your tablet out while you’re sitting on the bus or the train, but these uses are much more creative and better for promoting togetherness. And synergy.
