I don't do resolutions at the beginning of a new year. They're too intense, and (supposed) friends always seem a little too excited when you don't stick to them.
I'm a goals guy. I head over to my Notes app and make a list of 20-30 things/skills/places I'd like to do, try and see. This year's list includes a desire to visit three separate National Parks.
Only problem with that — I don't exactly have the proper gear. I'm a born again Boy Scout, and I've flirted with the outdoors for a few years now but could definitely use a good, honest adventure backpack.

There's a hefty selection of 10L, 20L, 28L and 32L packs, each of 'em putting to use Osprey's waterproof nylon fabric and featherlight frame. Many also come with hydration sleeves, and the packs' legendary Anti-Gravity suspension system will help the pack hang comfortably on your shoulders, no matter the load. Or the National Park.
