Review via Blake Thomas & Waylon Lewis, from the Holiday 2008 issue.

Over the course of the year I have been hiking so many times, each time better than the last. Whether long, short, steep or narrow I took this Osprey Halo. It’s so comfortable, I forgot it was there! A longtime eco manufacturer, Osprey recently caved to price competition and moved their manufacturing to ‘Nam (the “new China.”) where workers still receive wages above the local average. A portion of profits are donated to Leave no Trace and other eco orgs. The Resource packs are our fave: made of 70% recycled pop bottles. The Halo and it’s cousin, the Helix, is purrrfect for urban laptopians.

    While claiming that he is out to change the face of politics, Barack Obama keeps blundering into minefields of his own creation.
