This past week I attended the 2014 winter Outdoor Retailer show, where I discovered some of the latest in sports apparel, products and gear. This biannual show in Salt Lake City, Utah attracts thousands of buyers, decision-makers and journalists…all in search of the latest-and-greatest in the outdoor space.
Osprey is a leader in backpack technology, so it comes as no surprise as they expand their Kode series to include ABS, which is a life-saving airbag technology. Osprey’s Kode ABS Compatible Series comes as a fully functioning, backcountry-ready pack. The Kode ABS compatible pack body unzips to separate from the back panel, hip belt and harness so the base unit can be attached. With a single zipper, Osprey integrates the technology of ABS (for avalanche survival) into the Kode series to deliver optimal safety and peace of mind in the backcountry.
