VitalMTB.com – Featuring Zealot – September 2013

September 14th, 2013

While not entirely new for 2014, we thought you guys would appreciate this pack. The Zealot has a padded compression pocket for lugging your pads or jacket to the top, as well as straps to carry a full face and a clever Lid Lock feature to attach a half shell if you’re doing the enduro thing. Rear entry access allows you to keep your helmet attached but still get into it quickly. Another rad feature is the Air Scrape back panel, which is essentially air flow channels to keep you cool. The bag is offered in two models – the main difference being the inclusion of hip pockets. Get it in blue or black.

SkiNet.com – Featuring Zealot – May 16, 2012

May 16th, 2012

Our office is full of mountain bike enthusiasts who are all too happy to watch the last patches of snow melt off the trails. Right about now, they’re as giddy as we see them all year, thanks in large part to the weekly staff rides that started up a few weeks ago. We asked the staff-ride ringleader, fat-tire fanatic Tony Wilhelms what tools he carries to keep himself out of a pickle. Here they are. Don’t leave the trailhead without them:

Hydration Equipped Backpack: Osprey Zealot

When you’re two-wheeling downhill over rocks and ruts, a pack that bounces around or throws off your balance can be a crash waiting to happen. Osprey’s Zealot is designed specifically for mountain bikers; it has a slim design that keeps it centered and close to your body. As you’d expect, it includes a hydration reservoir and has separate sleeve with a drainage spout in case the bladder gets punctured or springs a leak. Pockets galore, sure, but it’s the placement not the quantity that won Tony over. A small pouch on the shoulder strap, for example, is a good place for him to stash and easily reach his energy snacks without missing a pedal stroke. And the piece de resistance? A magnetic interface between the drinking tube and the shoulder strap that keeps the tube from flapping in your face or out of reach. Conclusion: The Osprey design team spends plenty of time on the single track and knows what riders want.

BikeRumor.com – Featuring Escapist Series – February 19, 2012

February 19th, 2012

We saw the new Osprey Zealot and Syncro cycling packs at Interbike, both of which have a few bike-friendly features and are worth checking out. The new Escapist joins the 2012 lineup as the all-day pack with massive volume.

It shares the helmet attachment and short/tall size options and gets internal organizer pockets for bike specific tools and a blinky attachment loop with reflective strips all around. Straps are a breathable stretch mesh with wrap around waist belt with side pockets on the larger Escapist 30 (above, left). The main compartment has a large opening for cramming things in and a small slash/stash pocket on the top. The reservoir, which features their solid frame around it to keep the shape and help support the pack, uses a separate top loading insert slot. Various adjustment and compression straps help keep everything where it should be, and a ventilated back panel should help keep you cool and dry. And an integrated rain cover helps keep the pack dry. Two sizes, a 20 and 30 are available, both in the gray and blue colors shown.

January 28th, 2012

Osprey has long been known in the outdoor industry as one of the premiere backpack manufacturers in the world. But at the 2012 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, they revealed that they’re now about more than just outdoor recreation, unveiling a new line of travel bags, luggage, totes and child carriers. However, packs are their mainstay, and new bags for biking and hiking were also showed off on the convention center floor.

We like Osprey’s packs and here are three new packs. The middle on, the Zealot comes in a couple of sizes and is a full clamshell freeride pack. The full-round zip gives you access to your gear without having to undo all your pads from the outside of the pack. It also has a super-neat integral tool roll.

Bicycling.com – Featuring Zealot – September 15th, 2011

October 20th, 2011

After the successful introduction of its trail-oriented Raptor hydration packs, Osprey developed the larger Zealot for all-mountain rippers and freeriders. The pack comes in either 10-liter or 16-liter sizes, in two torso lengths. The Zealot has space for a full-face helmet and sleeves for armor. A clamshell design allows access to the large main pocket, but the pack’s trickest feature may be the roll-up tool pouch that zips into an easily accessible pocket under the pack.

INTERBIKE 2011: OSPREY PACKS GET SIMPLER, GO BIGGER

While Osprey’s entries into the bike market have all been very well built, it turns out that some riders aren’t looking for quite so much organization (or the weight and complexity that it can bring) in their packs.  For them, Osprey has released the pared-back Syncro 10, 15, and 20.

On the rough & tumble side of things, Osprey’s Zealot is a freeride-oriented pack that is a bit sturdier, is fairly thin (to be comfortable while riding the lifts), and has full clamshell-style access and a cool tool roll that deploys from the bottom of the bag.
