New Osprey gear
OSPREY HAS RELEASED some updated packs, including the excellent Daylite and new Daylite Plus daypacks.
The Daylite series can be used both on its own or when attached to a larger compatible Osprey pack (Aether/Ariel series, Volt/Viva series.Ace 75+ Shuttle series, Sojourn series, Farpoint 80 and Porter series).The versatility of this pack allows it to be used for everything from a day hike, short climb or for when you’re back in town to buy more supplies for that next adventure.
The Daylite series features include a large main zipped loading compartment that makes access to the inside of the pack easy; side mesh (stretch) pockets for loading up extra gear; a front pocket that contains a small organizer section with handy key clips for attaching items; an interior sleeve that doubles as a space for storing more gear or as the pocket for a hydration bladder; and a back panel that is mesh-covered and combines with the foam frame sheet to make for a comfortable load-carrying pack that ensures the load inside is dispersed evenly across the wearer’s back. The ventilated harness is comfy (the Plus models have additional EVA foam padding) and the hipbelt is removable if you so desire.
The Daylite packs feature 16L volume, with the larger Plus variants upping the carrying capacity to 20L.RRP$69.95-$79.95.
Moving into the larger luggage market, Osprey has also updated its highly regarded Sojourn range of wheeled bags.The Sojourn is available in 45L, 60L and 80L sizes (RRP$379.95-$429.95) and is packed with features aimed at both convenience and durability – an essential when you’re lugging your gear all over the place, from airport, to taxis, etc.
The standout feature of the Sojourn series is the HighRoad Chassis and the 6061 aluminium frame.The chassis boasts an extra wide frame that helps stabilize the load when you’re rolling through airports.Another brilliant feature is the inbuilt pack suspension that includes features from Osprey’s excellent AG suspensions system.A tensioned mesh lumbar region and padded airmesh waistbelt combine to both offer plenty of ventilation when you’re carrying the Sojourn, as well as excellent load distribution, to ensure your back evenly supports the load.The suspension system is very easy to adjust and can be removed completely if you are not envisaging using it on your travels.Access to your gear is also a doddle thanks to the large zipped opening.
The Sojourn series also includes plenty of features aimed at helping secure your luggage, such as the external and internal compression straps.This not only stops things moving around and getting damaged, but also makes the load sit better in the bag for easier transportation, whether on your back or via the wheeled option. Having the option of both these carry systems is excellent in our opinion; wheeling a bag over uneven surfaces, such as rocks, dirt road, etc., can be a serious pain, so being able to quickly throw it on your back really ups the versatility level of these load-luggers.
