A backpack can make or break any trip in the backcountry, so it’s important to have the specs that make you happy. Check out these packs that are hitting the shelves next spring: we’re betting you’ll find some good ones in the bunch. (…)
Trail runners and endurance athletes will be psyched to see the Rev series hit the shelves next spring as a new, ultralight contender. The packs are offered in six sizes– 24, 18, 12, 6, 1.5-liters and a single water bottle– but the largest clocks in at only 1 lb. 3 ounces (sans reservoir). The Rev collection will feature the new Biostretch body harness and belt that Osprey claims will fit more like clothing than a traditional pack, allowing it to move with the wearer. Additional touches like a magnetic sternum piece for the reservoir tube or the DigiFlip media pocket for phone access make this series one to watch.
