Keep up to date with the Bike Shop Girl coverage of the 2012 Interbike Trade Show with coverage, previews, exclusives and interviews.
The Raven series is the new sister to Osprey’s Raptor collection of premium, mountain biking, hydration packs.

Highly detailed and uniquely designed, these packs will turn a lot of heads while tearing up the trail.
Details: AirScapeTM backpanel, BioStretchTM harness as well as a full hipbelt to keep the pack stable and transfer the weight effectively. The packs are equipped with a 3L Hydraulics reservoir and Osprey’s new hydration sleeve design with direct access zip for fast loading.
Colors: Clover Green and Iris Purple
Sizes: Raven 14 – $129, Raven 10 – $119, Raven 6 – $109
The Verve women’s bag that Osprey came out with for 2012 gets a couple updates too. First is an additional pocket on the front of the bag and new colors!
Colors: Passion Purple and Platinum Grey
Sizes: Verve 13 – $109, Verve 9 – $99, Verve 5 – $89
We have been reviewing the 2012 Verve pack and excited to see some of the changes as it seems to make the bag a bit more functional for rides the girl looking for function (multi-tool, pump, food) and not a ton of water on their back (2-3L.)
Osprey Special Edition Verve 10 Women’s Hydration Bag
Purple is not what most people associate with Breast Cancer, but that is exactly the color that Osprey Packs hopes to use to raise atleast $5000 for the Breast Cancer Fund.
The special edition Verve 10 is amethyst with a front pocket screen of the iconic Breast Cancer Fund prayer flags that carry messages of love and healing and help to support breast cancer prevention. As with all Osprey packs, the Verve 10 is free of BPA, PVC/pthalates and triclosan.
“We are committed to the Breast Cancer Fund and their vital work in making the world a healthier and safer place for everyone,” said Gareth Martins, marketing director of Osprey. “This season, we are proud to show our continued support of this important organization through these special edition packs designed specifically for women.”
