The Rev 1.5 pack is lightweight and made for short, quick rides and it is also handy as a race pack or for those rides where you don’t need to carry a lot of stuff. It comes with a redesigned, simple, lightweight reservoir that holds 1.5 liters. Basic storage compartments for keys and other small items. The 1.5 list size uses a body belt system as opposed to the typical full length pack with a hip belt. The straps are shorter than a full size pack, but are wide for comfort. The double sternum strap holds the pack in place. the digi flip pocket on the left strap allows the phone to be carried safely, but still remains easily accessible right through the clear plastic. The MSRP for the Rev 1.5 is $70.

The Rev 6 (6 liter size) comes with a 2.5 liter reservoir and features more storage space than the 1.5. The MSRP for the Rev 6 is $100.

The Rev 12 (12 liter size) has a belt that comes around your rib cage with zippered pockets on the belt section. It has more storage capacity and is made for longer rides when you need to store more gear and accessories. The MSRP for the Rev 6 is $110.

As part of the Sping 2014 collection from Osprey, all 3 packs in the Rev series will be available in February of 2014.

Our Take:
Osprey is a well known and loved brand. When it comes to light weight packs, they are one of the best. It’s great to see them innovating and light weight, minimalist packs are perfect for those quick after work rides.

From the manufacturer:

Endurance and Trail Fitness endeavors are becoming popular for a wide segment of abilities and ethusiast levels. Providing hands-free hydration options that hold the exact essentials for long-distance movement is integral to our newest category of hydration.”
