PracticalTravelGear.com – Featuring Waypoint – October 1, 2014

October 1st, 2014

Despite the ever-increasing competition in the travel gear world, some items seem to remain perennial bestsellers that you’ll spot from Bangkok to Bariloche. The Osprey Waypoint 80 is clearly one of those.

A lot of the old guard travel backpack makers have moved more into luggage or have disappeared, while many newer companies are focused more on hiking packs than ones for travel. If you’re going bopping around the world for months though, on a lot of buses, trains, and ferries, you need a real travel backpack instead of one meant for a few nights on a trail.

Primarily, you need to be able to get to your stuff easily. That’s no problem with this Waypoint pack since the U-shaped zippers in the front go all the way to the bottom. No feeling around with your arm like you’re trying to get the prize out of a cereal box…

GramsLightBikes.com – Featuring SS15 Syncro, Zealot, Escapist Series, Moki and Hydrojet – September 28, 2014

September 28th, 2014

Osprey Packs made some changes to their popular Syncro, Zealot and Escapist packs for Spring 2015, and added some new kids hydration packs…

The Zealot is only offered in a 15 liter size this year, and it has new colors with more subdued graphics. It was redesigned with a slimmer profile to keep it closer to the body and away from the arms, to help it function better during extreme trail riding. It comes with their 3-liter Hydraulics reservoir, has dual mesh side pockets, their LidLock helmet attachment, and a padded front sleeve to carry a full faced helmet…

The Syncro now comes in 3, 10 and 15 liter models, and they’re more streamlined and lighter packs then their predecessors. The super light and minimalistic 3 liter versions will be a great pack for those quick rides and races, where only a small amount of gear is needed…

Osprey made some minor changes in their bikepacking Escapist Series of packs. They now have three sizes, with capacities of 18, 25 and 32 liters,…and will come in Sin Black, Indigo Blue, Cayenne Red colors. They have a large main compartment to make it easy to carry and organize gear…

New for this year are two kid specific hydration packs, the Moki and the Hydrojet 15. The packs come with their 1.5 liter Hydraulics LT reservoir, and they’re cut for a younger riders anatomy and torso size…

PinkBike.com – Featuring Rev 6 – September 25, 2014

September 25th, 2014

Hip bags have brought about a fresh trend in the mountain bike community, with riders looking for lighter and more minimalistic ways to carry essential items when out on the trail. Osprey’s new trail running Rev 6 pack might look a lot like a traditional mountain bike bag but it slots into that category as well by sporting a lightweight and simple package. The bag also sits higher on the back and is secured with two elastic-enhanced chest straps, a layout that is said to provide a comfortable yet snug fit that won’t shift around when you need employ some body english. And despite its trail running intentions, the Rev’s versatility should also make it an option for riders who are willing to considering something different.

The Rev line comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from the small 6 liter all the way up to a 24 liter option, with 12 and 18 liter options balancing out the line. Designed around the minimalist demands of a ultra-trail runners, the Rev packs include a variety of great features to make gear stowage easy and organized…

September 25th, 2014

GearJunkie was on site in Las Vegas this month to kick tires and see the latest in cycling equipment for 2015 at the annual Interbike International Expo. Today, we offer a look at some of the stand-outs from the show floor.

BikeRumor.com – Featuring Talon 6 – September 25, 2014

September 25th, 2014

Fanny packs. If enduro wasn’t already the lamest marketing trend since 27.5″ wheels, the ass backwards 80′s fanny pack has suddenly reared its ugly head in some misguided sort of pseudo euro fashion statement. Damn it…Yet it’s our duty to report on the latest and greatest coming and goings of the industry, so since Tyler is a roadie, and Zach only rides fat bikes, I was somehow conned… into running an enduro bro fanny pack battle off. Yay me…

Like the Camelback FlashFlor LR, the Talon 6 from Osprey was designed with hikers in mind, although the company claims it’s also ideal for trail running, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing…Inside there are two major compartments. The outer is smaller, but still large enough to fit a cellphone, wallet, etc… and has a key ring…The inner most pocket is voluminous and can easily hold a small jacket, and a couple of beers. Once fully loaded, two compression straps on the exterior of the bag allow you to cinch everything down…

TheActiveExplorer.com – Featuring Variant 37 – September 24, 2014

September 24th, 2014

My old climbing pack finally retired this year… This summer I started looking around for a pack that would be good throughout the year – on ice, rock, or light mountaineering. While there are a lot of good packs out there, (and I tried out many of them) my enthusiastic top choice was the Variant 37 by Osprey.

Weighing in at 3lbs, 8 oz. (for the large) it can comfortably haul loads up to 45 lbs.

Features I especially like about this pack:

  • The EVA foam expedition hipbelt and shoulder straps are incredibly comfortable.
  • The ErgoPull hipbelt closure adjusts quickly and easily.
  • I hauled a 40 lb. load up a steep approach and was impressed how comfortable the pack was.
  • If I ever want to go ultralight, the pack easily strips down to just 2 lbs…

September 23rd, 2014

Osprey Packs announced today that Ogden, Utah, has been selected as the new location for the company’s U.S. distribution center. While Osprey company headquarters, which includes sales, customer service, marketing, finance, returns and other core functions, will remain in Cortez, Colo., warehousing and shipping will occupy a new 108,000 square foot warehouse being built for Osprey in the Business Depot Ogden (BDO).

This relocation positions Osprey’s U.S. distribution center near the national rail network, allowing for improved supply chain efficiencies, smaller environmental impact as well as providing access to transportation lanes that support better service to the brand’s retailer base. Completion of the building along with retailer shipments from this new location is expected by mid–2015…

September 23rd, 2014

Cortez-based Osprey Packs has chosen Ogden as the Utah city where it will move its U.S. distribution center.

Osprey made the announcement Monday. It was looking to move distribution to a transportation hub, and Ogden is just 40 miles north of Salt Lake City.

Osprey said in a news release that company headquarters – which includes sales, customer service, marketing, finance, returns and other core functions – will remain in Cortez. The company, which specializes in backpacks, daypacks and hydration packs, employs about 74 people locally.

Warehousing and shipping will move into a 108,000-square-foot building in Business Depot Ogden, which is being constructed and is expected to be ready by mid-2015, Osprey said in the release…

SingleTrackWorld.com – Featuring SS15 Zealot, Syncro, Escapist and Moki – September 22, 2014

September 22nd, 2014

For 2015, Osprey has made a number of changes to several of their well-regarded (and often Singletrack Recommended) hydration packs…

Their first rad-specific pack, the Zealot is updated for 2015 with toned-down graphics (no more exploded frame drawing), a tidied exterior, and improved tool roll…

A revised Syncro range will make the short ride crowd happy, shedding roughly 1/3 of previous models’ weight.  Now-ambidextrous hosing could help to bring the 27% of Singletrackworld readers who prefer left-shoulder drinking into the fold…

Popular both for hut-to-hut trips and for commuting, Osprey’s Escapist has also been updated.  Again sleeker than its predecessors, the 18L, 25L, and massive 32L packs had us plotting our next adventure right there on the show floor…

And finally, one for the young-uns.  The new Osprey Moki is a full-featured pack built especially for kids.  Allowing the offspring to carry their own food, drink, and accessories is never a bad idea…
