The U.S. company Osprey may be better known for its sturdy backpacks, but it is entering the trail running market with these latest models.
Osprey announced gender-specific hydration packs available in various sizes. The Duro range is meant for men, while the Dyna range is designed with women in mind. Each is available in 1.5 L, 6 L or 15 L capacity.
The point of the vest packs is to provide “bounce-free stability,” and let you run without your water digging you in the back. Comfort is also improved thanks to a full-mesh build, which stops you getting soaked in sweat.
By no means are the Osprey packs supposed to be ultralight models for competitive runners. They feature a number of pockets and added features for comfort. However, they will last forever and have enough space to take some essential items with you on your general runs.
Osprey has a great reputation for building high-quality gear, and the first reviews of the Duro/Dyna range suggest those standards have been maintained. For those that want to run without clutching a bottle of water, this could be a great solution.
Check out the full range when it is released later this year, and stay hydrated on the trails.

Oymyakon, Siberia, is literally the coldest inhabited town on Earth. The town of only 500 residents is nicknamed “The Pole of Cold” and has witnessed temperatures as low as -98 degrees. Here, where eyelashes freeze in mere moments, cars must be kept running continually to avoid a dead battery, and vegetables cannot grow naturally; locals have managed to eke out a quaint, and oddly endearing, existence.
