Padded Organizer

When you’re traveling by bike, it’s advantageous to keep your gear and personal items as organized as possible. The Osprey Ultralight Roll Organizer is great for your personal items. It unrolls and can be hung by its hook allowing access to two mesh zippered pockets (one of which contains an attached mirror), two zippered micro pockets, and the main cargo compartment. The Roll’s dimensions are 15 x 6 x 3 in., it’s constructed of 40D ripstop nylon, and, unburdened, weighs 4.4 oz.

The Padded Organizer can also be used for personal items but I’ve been using it to store my ever-growing collection of “necessary” items like my iPod, a spare charger, a light, a mini pump, spare tube, mini speaker, bottle opener, corkscrew … you get the gist…

Rev 18 by Osprey : I tend to always be in a hurry when preparing for recreation so I’m a kitchen-sink kind of guy who keeps a bunch of stuff ready at all times — and that includes when I ride a bike. The Osprey Rev 18 hydration pack allows me to cram into it just about anything I’ll need when I go for a ride.

The Rev 18’s list of features is nearly astounding. Let’s start with storage: a large hydration compartment that can handle up to an 85-oz. reservoir (and it comes with Osprey’s 2.5-liter large-mouth Hydraulics LT version) and features a harness to keep it in place; a massive front pocket that I’ve used to store enough clothing to get me through any winter ride; a quick-access pocket at the top for smaller items like tire levers; a pocket on each side of the waist belt for even smaller items that you want quick access to from the front; and pockets on each shoulder strap for even quicker access to items like a mobile phone — and all are zippered except for those on the shoulder strap. If that amount of storage isn’t enough, the front panel features a looping bungee cord so you can fasten more stuff to it. Who needs panniers?

September 17, 2014

North America’s largest cycling tradeshow — flung open its doors to the public for the first time this year, allowing cycling enthusiasts into the hallowed halls for just $10 a head on the final day of last week’s show. Adventure Cycling Association staff members were on hand to man the booth, meet with our many partners and supporters in the industry and, of course, check out the latest and the greatest in the cycling world…

Osprey’s selection of backpacks runs the gamut from tiny race-day-only grab bags to kitchen-sink-carrying behemoths, all with the company’s attention to detail and blessedly trouble-free hydration bladders. But it was the medium-sized Zealot that caught our eye thanks to a few unique features. First, Osprey’s helmet attachment system is so simple and well-functioning it should be standard on all backpacks in the world. Just pop it through a vent and your helmet is securely attached and out of the way when off the bike…
