To help you get ready for this summer’s hiking, backpacking and camping adventures, WT’s editor and gear team have been hard at work reviewing some of the latest selections in outdoor gear. From backpacks to tents and everything in between, they’ve put this gear to the test for our 2016 Gear Guide.
28. Osprey Manta AG 36
Osprey has taken their amazing Antigravity mesh harness system (introduced in 2015 with the Atmos and Aura big pack line, resulting in numerous innovation awards and a WT editor’s choice nod) and incorporated it into their Manta (men’s) and Mira (women’s) daypack series. Now you can enjoy remarkable body-hugging comfort and support with a smaller load on dayhikes and rides. Plus, it’s loaded with features that both hikers and mountain bikers will love—we sure did!
