This sub-1 pound pack has everything you need for comfort and proper hydration when commuting or trail riding, with nothing extra. A ventilated back keeps you cool and supports your load along with redesigned contoured straps. The pack holds a 2.5-liter reservoir, with enough room for a jacket, multitool, and tube, and snack in the front organizer pocket. The internal zip pocket keeps track of your car key. Commuting? Slip your helmet onto the carry clip when you get to work.

Osprey’s 2015 lineup wants to make sure the kids are staying just as well hydrated as the parents. The Moki (right) is a small hydration pack designed to fit the much small torso of kids. They won’t be carrying only their water though. It has room for them to carry food, which can be kept organized by interior pockets.

The Zealot (second from the left) is offered in a singular 15L size this year – compared to the 10L and 16L sizes last year – after finding it to be the optimal in-between size for all-mountain riders. It’ll be available in atomic orange or carbide grey. The Escapist, now in it’s second year, is deigned with overnight bikepackers in mind. It will be offered in 18L, 25L and 32L size options, and will be available in black, indigo blue, cayenne red. The sleeping bag storage area will now be expanded to being on both the 25L and 32L options.


The Synro line will be available in 15L, 10L and 3L sizes. We’re certainly most excited about the 3L option. Most of our rides are two hours or less, requiring nothing more than some water, CO2 inflator and tube. The Syncro 3 makes it easy with a lightweight pack that doesn’t weigh us down unnecessarily. It’ll be available in blue racer, velocity green, meteorite grey.
