May 1, 2015

Outdoor gear doesn’t just improve, it keeps getting dramatically better. For our biannual Gear of the Year awards, we celebrate the insights, breakthroughs, and leaps forward in new products that make our time in the outdoors safer, more comfortable, and more fun. Here are our picks for spring/summer 2015.

Osprey’s new pack, the Atmos AG (men’s) and Aura AG (women’s), radically reinvents the backpacking experience. This “antigravity” backpack has one of the most unconventional and comfortable suspensions ever made. Starting at the top near the grab handle, the AG has a perforated mesh panel that runs the length and width of your back, all the way down to your hips and around the front of the waist via the hip belt. This creates smooth, even pressure against your shoulder blades down to the lumbar region—it’s more like a gentle caress than the poking and prodding of a typical pack.

Either way, you’re going to find something for you, er, everyone in this wonderful, eclectic, and charming mix of products from the best outdoor brands. Don’t miss our gift ideas selected specifically for the hiker/camper, skier/snowboarder, cyclist, and photographer…

The recipient of the Osprey Stratos 26 will thank you for years to come: This is as close to the perfect daypack as it gets. The top-loading Stratos carries everything you throw at it up to about 25 or so pounds, thanks to an arched suspension frame that not only stabilizes the load but allows airflow behind the back. At 26 liters, there’s enough room for a winter’s day or even an ultralight summer overnight, and with a myriad of straps and attachment points, you can lash any afterthoughts. It has two water bottle pockets (and a huge hydration pouch inside) and double zippered pockets on the waist belt for quick access to your camera, phone, or munchies.
