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.

Get Through Airport Security Faster with CLEAR

Getting through airport security can be a nightmare in and of itself, adding extra hours to your trip that could better be spent in any number of more enjoyable activities. Programs like Global Entry and TSA PreCheck are helping to make the process a little more bearable, but a new program, CLEAR, is quickly emerging as an up-and-coming way to make things even easier.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
