NationalOutdoors.net – Featuring Raptor 10 – March 2011

March 17, 2011

The Osprey Raptor 10 is a feature-rich mountain biking hydration backpack. The pack’s capacity is 600 cubic inches. With an empty hydration bladder the pack weights 2 lbs. 4 ounces or just over a kilogram. There are two sizes depending on torso length. I tested the Osprey Raptor 10 while mountain biking on trails along the Wasatch Foothills. I also took it for a few day hikes and cross country skiing.

Buzz.snow.com featuring Osprey Raptor 10

October 6, 2010


Osprey packs consistently impress me with their suspension, comfort, and fit, and the Raptor 10 is no exception. This pack looks sleek-small, even-but it’s got room for the food, gear and clothes an all-day ride demands, intelligently placed pockets and straps that stay put. All this on a semi-rigid frame that moves with your body. Better yet, Osprey’s HydraLock system pressurizes the water reservoir, increasing water flow. Turn the bite valve 90 degrees, bite, and the hose does the rest of the work. That’s a beautiful thing when schlepping up five miles of single track under a blazing sun.

Examiner.com – Featuring Raptor 6 Hydration Pack – May 23rd, 2010

June 9, 2010

Osprey Packs have integrated a comfy harness and waist belt into the Raptor 6. The harness is flexible due to its mesh and foam design. The flexibility allows the harness to adjust to your body movements. The mesh and nylon hip belt has 2 pockets and cinches in the Raptor 6 above your hips.

The pack has 3 zippered external pockets. One is for the hydration bladder and where the back panel is located. A small zippered non-scratchable pocket is designed for essentials such as sunglasses and a GPS. The main zippered pocket is the largest and has 3 internal pockets to organize tools and snacks. The Raptor 6 does have one stretch woven non-zippered front pocket. It works well for stashing a rain coat and can easily be accessed when a downpour emerges.

A lightweight hydration pack has become a must for longer biking treks. Hydration packs are versatile enough to carry plenty of water along with clothing for rainy weather and tools for maintenance emergencies.

The Cyclist – Featuring Raptor – May 26, 2010

June 8, 2010

If you asked the endurance racing crowd or if you surveyed the bikepacking group, the folks that spend hours and days crossing remote sections of the countryside, as to what backpack/hydration pack was a favorite among them, the Osprey Talon 22 would be at the top of the list.  It is lauded for its comfort, design, and construction.  In the world of hiking, multi-sport and mountaineering, Osprey is well known.  It turns out that Osprey has been making packs for some time now and in 2009, celebrated 35 years in the business.

Now, in addition to more types of packs than you can imagine, they have added a new line of hydration packs under the Hydraulic banner. Called the Raptor series, they are pointed directly at mountain bikers although they could apply to a multi-sport application.
