The Osprey Ozone Convertible Series has made active traveling easier for everyone—Osprey neatly combined a wheelable, lightweight suitcase with a backpack-carry option that also has an easily detachable, zip-off daypack. The suspension system can be fully removed for trips where you won’t need to carry the pack on your back. For the suitcase, you’ll get all the regular amenities like external pockets, padded carry handles and an extendable handle, but also an adjustable harness, a padded mesh back panel and a hip belt for when you want to sport a pack. The 15-liter daypack has padded shoulder straps and is laptop compatible.
With last season’s stock of outdoor gear sold out, the holidays are the best time to buy the newest items on the market. Use this gift guide, with the latest equipment for hiking, camping and backpacking, to make sure your favorite people are ready for their first adventure of the year.
The right amount of space, plenty of pockets and easy access to water makes the female-only Mira Series pack ideal—not just for hikers, but for any outdoor adventurer in your life. The Mira style is very small, however, and not suited for a long trip with a lot of equipment. For a backpacking pack that can fit a sleeping bag, clothing and more, go with the Viva Series, which is much larger but has the same features as the Mira.
