Adventure Journal – Featuring Osprey’s Zealot Biking Packs – August 4th, 2011
For spring 2012, Osprey is pushing harder into the gravity realm, as well as into adventure biking. For the former there’s the Zealot series of freeride packs, with the 16 and the 10. Both have anchors/sleeves for a full-face/body armor while maintaining access to side- and top pockets as well as the heart of the pack. The entire back panel clamshells open, with your pads or body armor or jacket still attached to the outside, so you can gain access to the center without removal of all that gear. Another clever addition is a removable, roll-out tool pouch that gets its own pocket at the base of the pack.
