GearInstitute.com – Featuring Variant 37 – October 23, 2014

October 23rd, 2014

Montana-based David Steele spends winter days (and spring, late-summer and even some autumn days) skinning up and skiing down some of the more remote terrain in the west. A Montana native who attended college in Washington, he has carved the glaciers of the North Cascades and the snowfields of Glacier National Park. He skis where few others tread, other than the occasional grizzly bear, hence the name of his personal adventure blog, SkinningWithBearSpray.com

We recently asked this athlete—sponsored by Mountain Equipment, ON3P skis, Klymit, and Osprey among others—what else lives in his pack…

When it comes to my pack, I’ve found the Osprey Variant 37 is the ideal fit for ski touring. Whether out on a day of cragging, ski touring overnight, or heading up a big alpine day hike, the Variant comfortably carries everything I need or want with me. I want one pack for all my day trips, and the Variant is totally there.

Stack.com – Featuring Spin 32 – October 8, 2014

October 8th, 2014

I’ve been commuting by bike for about 7 years now. During that time, I’ve used a multitude of different bags to carry my gear to and from work. In the past I had more messenger-style packs, both the single-strap and bookbag style. Though they worked well, stood up to the elements and had an aesthetic I liked, that style of bag wasn’t always practical or completely waterproof. I decided to try a more technical pack for reasons of comfort and functionality. The Osprey line of commuter bags fit the bill…

Traditionally thought of as a hiking pack company, Osprey produces a full line of bags specifically designed for bike commuters. I tested the Spin 32. I was tentative at first, because although their backpacks look good on the trail, I wasn’t sure as how the style would carry over to the street.

I was impressed.

The bag doesn’t look like a typical bike messenger bag. The styling is somewhat aggressive and the reflective strips make it look pretty cool in the dark (not to mention the extra visibility). And whereas some messenger bags tend to have only one large pocket, the Osprey Spin has many pockets that are fully functional for carrying varying loads: a standard padded laptop sleeve, a main compartment and a smaller front compartment for odds and ends like pens and small notebooks. A few side pockets were a perfect fit for my water bottle or coffee mug…

OutsideOnline.com: Winter Buyer’s Guide – Featuring Mutant 38 – October 2014

October 1st, 2014

At first glance, the 38-liter Mutant ($160) (it’s also available in a 28-liter version, pictured) looks like a bare-bones pack. There’s no side access to the main compartment and few obvious bells and whistles. But dig a little deeper and a bunch of vertically inspired features appear, like the zigzag webbing that pulls double-duty as both compression and ski-carry straps. With adjustment points in three spots, “it’s quick to open, close, and fine-tune,” said our most experienced tester, a mountain guide in British Columbia. It also downsizes nicely for shorter missions…
