I am pretty excited about this new pack from Osprey (the Syncro 15). In fact, that is an understatement (which Mtn Papa could verify because he has to listen to me rave about it every time we go biking….daily…)
The Osprey Syncro 15 is capable of holding 100 fluid ounces, which is plenty to supply myself (and my kids) throughout our days running around town. The pack is built with mountain bikers (and hikers) in mind and has some added features catered especially to that crowd. However, as a biking (and hiking) mom, I love the features for what I do too. Water is readily available, I am able to keep my important personal items (phone, wallet, keys, etc.) on my person, and I hardly notice it is there.
The Osprey Syncro 15 is available at REI for $109 (though it certainly is also sold other places – Amazon.com, Moosejaw, etc.) Additionally, the “15” (meaning 15 liters) is the middle size. The Syncro 20 and Syncro 10 are also available (again, the numbers relate to the capacity in Liters.)
