Osprey Escapist 18 Backpack
It’s great not knowing where the trail ends, if you share this ‘single-track’ mind then you need an Escapist 18. Everything we know about building bike packs is in the Escapist.
We know what biking 50 miles feels like, so we’ve integrated our unique AirScape™ backpanel with ridge-foam to provide relentless ventilation and support. During fast descents the BioStretch™ harness and side-wings listen to your body to secure your pack on your back. You’ll be working hard so keeping hydrated is important and you can easily re-fill your reservoir with the external hydration sleeve. Full access to your spare clothing is achieved through the panel opening design. Your tools are stored separately in quick access compartments, with specific sleeves for pumps. A handy top pocket lined with ‘heat-embossed nylon’ provides a scratch free zone for your expensive sunglasses, whilst a harness pocket lined with the same fabric provides a useful storage solution for electronics such as iPhones and GPS. The side compressors are designed to run either under or over the stretch mesh side pockets. On the front of the pack you also have a large mesh pocket, which is ideal for a wet jacket or extra layer of clothing. In wet weather and heavy traffic the built in high-visibility rain cover provides protection, with the added safety feature of a bike-light attachment point. But we’ve not finished there, the built in lightweight Osprey LidLock™ quickly and securely stows a bike helmet on the pack and the reflective graphics on each side keep you visible to bike lights or vehicles if moving in low light conditions. Add escapology to your riding repertoire.
