Salt Lake City holds the world’s largest outdoor industry gathering each August and January, it’s called the Outdoor Retailer Market. This year they had an impressive 1,595 exhibitors occupying 545,684 square feet. With over 27,000 attendees, it sometimes feels like navigating a street market in Bangkok rather than a trade show. We spent a few days learning about the newest product innovations said to hit the market in the upcoming year. Here’s a few new products that stood out to us…

The Osprey Atmos and Aura 65 will soon be getting new suspension. It’s called AntiGravity (AG) suspension. Its one of those innovations that makes you say, “How come nobody else thought of that?” Osprey’s Fit-on-the-Fly hip belt and adjustable back panel will not be changing, but the new AG back panel is promised to have an even better fit and reduce hotspots because the mesh is constructed from one piece. We look forward to testing it out.

Osprey ‘Wrap’ Backpack — The Osprey Atmos AG and Aura AG packs have a suspension/harness system unlike anything we’ve seen. Like a hammock on the back, the suspension mesh wraps around the wearer’s hips and into the shoulder straps.

The effect is a pack body that barely contacts the wearer, suspended away from the torso in most points for incredible ventilation and a secure, comfortable hug. We can’t wait to test this one out. It will hit the market in 2015.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Osprey is releasing a number of new accessories as well as updated and brand new packs. The most unique of which is the fourth generation of the Atmos AG (anti-gravity) and Aura AG pack series for men and women, respectively—with the original idea coming from Osprey’s owner and founder, Mike Pfotenhauer.

“When Mike began designing the Atmos AG, his vision was to create [a pack] that was entirely seamless,” said Gareth Martins, Osprey’s Director of Marketing, during Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. “When you put this pack on, it wants to wrap around you before you even connect the hipbelt. There’s a great deal of customization.”

In the creation process, the goal was to address the three most important factors for backpackers—comfort, load carry, and ventilation.

The Best New Gear Awards are Gear Institute’s way of honoring the most legitimately innovative new gear in the outdoor industry—products that represent a true step forward in design, aesthetics, or performance, and which debuted at the Summer 2014 Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah. (…)

This is the most inspired design in backpack design we’ve seen in years. The entire back panel of Osprey Atmos AG is a single piece of suspending webbing that floats away from the pack itself—even in the waist belt—which distributes weight over every contour of your body. That not only cushions bony places and absorbs the vibrations of trail bouncing like a trampoline, it also easily allows air to flow around your waist and back better than any system we’ve every seen. Designed for weekend loads up to about 45-pounds, the Atmos AG (or Aura AG for women) will come in 50 and 60-liter versions for $230-$260.

Our twice-annual pilgrimage to the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City starts tomorrow. Thousands of brands display new wares and gear that won’t be available to public until 2015. This post, part I of our preview series, reveals a smattering of swag that caught our eye. (…)

‘Wearer can move as if there’s no pack’ — That’s the claim. The Atmos AG (Men’s) and Aura AG (women’s) are Osprey’s fourth generation of its ventilated backpacks. New this time around is a load-balancing system that Osprey cites allows a wearer to move as if they don’t have a pack on. That’s quite the claim, and we plan to vet it this week at the show.
