TheManual.com – Featuring Atmos AG 50 – March 24, 2015

March 24th, 2015

Atmos-940x600

The jungles and islands of South East Asia are a paradise for a traveler who is prepared for a little adventure..From hauling gear through airports, on boats and buses, to trekking down tourist laden beaches, we put this short list of essentials through a two week test endurance test to find the best gear for a jetsetter on a budget.

Osprey Atmos AG
The all new Atmos AG (Anti-Gravity) pack is easily our favorite backpacking gear hauler ever made. The completely redesigned 3D suspension lifts the load off your shoulder and back without the use of heavy padding or foam. This gives you unparalleled comfort whether you’re hauling a load of camping gear through the jungle or wrestling your pack down a long airport concourse to catch a flight. If we keep one pack forever, this one will be it.

GearPatrol.com – Featuring Atmos AG 65 – March 24, 2015

Osprey-Pack-Offset-Gear-Patrol1

Five miles into my hike around the iconic Mitten Ridge in Sedona, I stopped on the side of the trail for some water and to survey the damage. Looking down, I saw that the soft, brittle, slippery sandstone terrain had taken a toll on my shoes: the tops were completely covered in red dirt and small stones gritted between my toes..But that’s when I realized something was missing. Despite a full pack of over 40 pounds, my shoulders and lower back were in pretty good shape.

Resting on them was one of the industry’s hottest new backpacks, the Osprey Atmos AG 65. The purpose of my hike was to test out its highly touted new “Anti-Gravity Suspension” system, a technology meant to ensure the pack hugs the contours of a hiker’s body, distributes weight, reduces movement, and increases comfort (i.e. eliminates back sweat and shoulder/hip pressure).

I don’t consider myself an outdoorsy type. Until recently the last time I spent a night in a tent was during a trip I took in middle school, nearly 14 years ago. So when my mother suggested last fall that she, my younger brother, and I climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania I was excited about the adventure but nervous about spending more than a week in a tent surrounded by the windy, cold conditions of the mountain..It turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. Here are the companies and the gear that got me through it and the 14 things I learned:

10. Bring the right bags. Everyone climbing Kilimanjaro has to let a porter carry his or her duffle bag. I found Osprey’s 130-liter Transporter bag (above) to be the perfect size.

PasteMagazine.com – Featuring Pixel Port – March 13, 2015

March 13th, 2015

Finding the perfect travel backpack is similar to shopping for cars—you can go basic, or you can load up on the bells and whistles… From packs with features most travelers will never need (ice ax hooks? Really?) to the basic reliable bag that will last you a lifetime, here are seven backpacks that are ideal for nomads.

Osprey Pixel Port: As close to a “smart pack” as you can get without making it battery-powered, the Pixel Port features a “port” window that lets you access and use a tablet without removing it from the pack. That’ll come in handy when navigating a city street during a monsoon. The bag, which comes in five colors, can carry 14 liters and has a 14-inch laptop sleeve in a very sleek, urban-centric package.

If you’re looking to invest in new luggage, consider where you’re most often headed. Are you an extreme hiker headed to scale your next peak, or typically off to Silicon Valley to pitch your next start-up? The bag you bring should suit your needs, and these days, there’s a sophisticated and sturdy option for everyone. Here are high-tech rolling suitcases for serious travelers…

Osprey Contrail 28: One of the most thoughtfully designed pieces here, the light, 75-liter Contrail works hard to be a traveler’s total package, featuring such smart, removable built-ins as a two-sided organizer and a hang-up laundry bag. The build is tough, thanks in part to skid plates and padded grab handles.
