It’s for this reason that Osprey has been expanding the female specific pack range for 25 years, meeting the need for ergonomically designed packs and changing specifications to suit the female form.
Our women’s packs feature a backsystem that has been specifically designed to provide an optimum fit for a female body, offering unparalleled levels of comfort and support.
Narrower Shoulder Width The shoulder harness is proportioned and designed with graded padding thickness to create a specially designed fit for a woman’s neck, shoulder and chest.

Ergonomically Shaped Harness The ergonomically shaped harness is contoured to sit around the side of the body, creating a more comfortable women’s specific fit.
Shorter Torso Length The packs are designed to be shorter, narrower and with added depth in the right places to allow greater freedom of movement and stabilisation.
Specially Designed Hipbelt We sculpt and angle our hipbelts to better suit a female hip shape for optimal support. The conical design sits comfortably and prevents rubbing on the ribs or thigh.

Copper Rivet Distillery has been set up by the Russell family, Bob and his sons Matthew and Stephen. Their dream was to establish their own distillery in the Chatham area, and this they have done, renovating Pumphouse no.5 to make it into the stunning distillery it is today.

The Copper Rivet Distillery sits proudly on the banks of the River Medway in Chatham’s Historic Dockyard in Kent. Inland lies the yachting marina, which was once the Dockyard’s Basin Number 1.

Their first gin was distilled in October 2016, and the range now includes Dockyard Gin, Vela Vodka and a cask finished grain spirit called Son of a Gun. In addition, Masthouse Whiskies will be available from 2020, once they have matured in barrel.

Vela Vodka has already received the top ‘double gold’ award at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards 2017. Vela vodka is lightly charcoal filtered to give a creamy mouthfeel, a delicate palate with a balance of cereal and fruit flavours, and a hint of pink peppercorn.

Chatham was home to Britain’s first royal dockyard, building ships ranging from Nelson’s Victory to the submarines of the 1960s. The distillery lies across the river from Upnor Castle, built by Queen Elizabeth 1st in 1559-1567 to protect her navy. It was later the largest gunpowder store in the country.

The Distillery is housed in a Victorian Pumphouse, which previously controlled the water flows into, and out of, the dry docks. Now, the elegant pink brick structure is home to three stills, all designed in-house and made by local, skilled craftsmen. The area has long been renowned for using its metal skills to craft world-class ships. The Gin still is called Janet; the Column still is called Joyce; and the Whisky still is called Sandy, all named after Matthew and Stephen Russell’s grandparents.

Copper Rivet distillery is one of only six UK distilleries to control the whole distillation process from grain to glass. Its water is filtered through chalk beds to let Copper Rivet’s yeast deliver its signature fruity esters during fermentation. Local farmers, the Burdens, have been contracted to grow and harvest the holy trinity of cereals which the distillery uses for its spirits – wheat, barley and rye. These are grown on the nearby Isle of Sheppey and by Canterbury. All three spirits are crafted in small batches of 900 bottles.

Head distiller, Abhi Banik, was trained at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. With the Russells, he is laying the foundations of a distilling centre of excellence in Chatham and already has two assistant distillers – both local Engineering graduates. Abhi has designed for the family a unique gin still, which allows them to conduct two infusion techniques simultaneously … uniquely one rectification, but two infusions. A patent has been applied for. The family has also designed stills, again made locally, for their vodka and whisky.

Stephen Russell comments: “We named the distillery after the copper rivet found at the building before it became a distillery. We felt that it had a resonance to the industrial history of the Dockyard and the ingenuity and historic bravery of the area. The new distillery aims to revive this local spirit with our collection of ‘firsts’ and ‘onlys’. Think about what an incredible piece of engineering a rivet is and the craft it took to produce them with consistency. This is an inspiration to us. And of course there’s a great connection to the Copper stills we use in distillation.”

Copper Rivet distillery from its outset has conducted one hour tours of the distillery, taking place on Wednesdays to Sundays. Since October, over 3000 guests have already toured the distillery.

The southern half of the Pumphouse contains the distillery; and the northern half houses the historic pump, and McGuire’s Fine Foods delicatessen and cafe. In future years, there are plans for a fine dining restaurant as well.

Times may change, but the Dockyard Spirit endures. There is much more to come …

2016 The doors open.
2017 Copper Rivet’s Vela Vodka wins top award at the San Francisco World Spirits competition.

Hosted a Star-Studded US Team 2018 Celebration

at MAMO Restaurant

The US Team 2018 of pioneering all-women rallye Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc—the first international off-road rally race of its kind exclusively for women—hosted an event at Provençal restaurant MAMO in New York City to celebrate their journey to Morocco for the 28th Annual Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc, which takes place March 16-31, 2018. The event celebrated the guests of honor, competitors Jazmin Grimaldi & Kiera Chaplin, Schanel B. & Pauline Ducret, Keanna Erickson-Chang & Claudia Barbera-Pullen, and Martine Taylor & Elena Sorre.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’Oeuvres as they learned more about the event and the women competing. Notable attendees included: Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, Ian Mellencamp, Elena Sorre, Schanel Bakkouche, Keanna Erickson-Chang, Pauline Ducruet, Gaultier Desandre Navarre, Sarah Zendejas, Paul Trustfull, Brooke Bond, Maddy Karlsson and Danielle Harris.

The annual Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc sees women ages 18 to 71 from more than 30 different countries taking to the Moroccan desert without GPS — relying only on old-fashioned navigation, completely off-road. Each vehicle is equipped with satellite tracking system, powerful enough to provide minute by minute tracking, so without seeing a vehicle for hours, the women are never alone. By the end of the experience, participants—known as “Gazelles”—have created adventure-filled new memories, deepened their bonds with their teammates, and pushed themselves further than they ever thought they could.

The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is also deeply committed to the well-being of the Moroccan people, as seen through the work of its non-profit, Cœur de Gazelles. In 2016, the organization’s 60-member team provided more than 4,000 medical consultations to the local population during the eight day competition. Additionally, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles is dedicated to the environment—it is the world’s only motor rally with ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification.

My name is Sheila Tan and I’m a portrait artist based in Sydney, Australia.

As a toddler, my mum noticed that I knew how to hold a pen properly. Growing up, I used to draw tirelessly with scraps of paper she brought home. It was like play to me. Graduating from the University of Sydney with a B Design Computing degree, I left my art behind for many years, attempting to build a career in the traditional corporate way.

Knowing that this was not my path, I started drawing and painting again, launching Funky Portrait in 2014 and sharing my work with a humble website and Instagram account. Interest grew gradually and I started creating portrait commissions – creating portraits that are as gifts to someone special. Some are men who want to give a meaningful gift to their wives, girlfriends or fiances. Some are of special memories or occasions, like a first date or a holiday. They are unique stories captured as an original work of art.
Seeing their reaction when they first see their portrait is truly rewarding. I get hugs, tears and sincere, grateful messages. “She loved it!” “They cried when they opened it”. And many, many “Thank you’s”.

With the use the simple media of pencil and paper, my portraits strive to capture and convey story, drawing out feeling, energy and personality. My choice of media is connected with positive constraints and our ability as humans to make the most of what we have. My portraits represent precious moments shared with the ones we love. We have the ability to create beautiful things out of the simplest of tools, such as pencil and paper. We don’t need much to experience the beauty of such moments. It only takes a simple thought or gift to reinforce connection with the ones we love.


New electric muscle stimulation device aids in muscle recovery by targeting tight spots.

Whether you’re a gym junkie, home athlete, lean machine or regular Jane or Joe, Moyee is just what you need to loosen up your body and get yourself feeling stronger, faster and better.

By working with low-frequency outputs of electric muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, Mooyee delivers electric impulses to the body – causing muscles to contract, release and stimulate blood flow.

Natasha Hili, Director of Power Pulse Sports Recovery believes that too often, a person’s health focus is on weights and conditioning, with little thought given to rest, recovery and repair.

“Taking care of your body in between working out is more important than working out itself, as this is when your body is recuperating from the stress of exercise. With Mooyee, you can go about your day, while the device works its muscle magic,” Matthew Mason said.

Mooyee uses five different massage movements and patterns to enable specific targeting. Once attached, the electrical impulses start working on tight spots, while you sit back and watch your muscles respond to the treatment.

“Electric muscle stimulation is the ideal treatment for people who are training, people who want to loosen up any tight nasty spots, and people in need of extra muscles ease support. Mooyee promotes power, endurance, strength, muscle toning and also helps release lactic acid,” Natasha added.

Priced at just AU$99.95, Mooyee is an affordable solution that is delivering results to thousands of satisfied customers who have suffered from unpleasant DOMS (Delayed on set muscles soreness) brought about by sport, strain and intense working out.

Moyee is rechargeable – using a standard USB connection that produces up to 300 minutes of single charge usage. It’s lightweight, portable and can be used on almost all parts of the body.

Whether it’s to celebrate a special occasion, or just wind down at the end of a long day, there’s nothing much better than pouring yourself a glass (or two…) of wine or bubbles. But statistics show that almost 24 percent of Australians have injured themselves as a result of drinking, and even more can’t remember what they’ve done whilst drinking and have regretted how much they’ve had to drink*. So what if you could have your wine and drink it too – without any of the consequences?

Edenvale alcohol removed wine makes it possible to do just that. Unlike most other non-alcoholic beverage alternatives, Edenvale wines are wines, made from varietal wine grapes, using traditional wine-making methods. Maintaining all the flavour, characteristics and varietal integrity of traditional blends, Edenvale removes the alcohol at the final stage of the wine-making process, leaving behind the health benefits of fermentation but cutting out the alcohol content – and your hangover.

Offering a sophisticated alcohol removed alternative for those who still wish to sip on an adult beverage, Edenvale’s range of wines are also perfect for pregnant women, those abstaining from alcohol for various reasons, and health conscious consumers who still want to enjoy the social aspect of having a drink – without having a drink.

Heroes of the comprehensive range include a well-balanced and smooth Chardonnay, a fresh and fruity Sparkling Cuvee, and a Shiraz with flavours of dark plummy fruit and spice. With roughly half the calories of standard wine, you’ll not only wake up without the hangover, you’ll also be able to have a great night out – wine glass full and in hand – without ruining your diet, or the morning after.

Katrina’s book, “Loving on Me! Lessons Learned on the Journey from MESS to MESSAGE,” defines her quest to inspire women to aim higher. Katrina McGhee is an author, speaker, entrepreneur and a strategic advisor for “do good” organizations across America. For more than two decades, Katrina McGhee has been a champion for women. Having served on the executive level for two of the world’s leading non-profit organizations, the American Heart Association and Susan G.

Armed with a steely determination to love herself while still serving others, McGhee transitioned her life away from her high level status in corporate America and, in 2012, she created Loving on Me. This tale of transformation chronicles McGhee’s own journey toward self-worth while providing readers with the tools they need to ignite their own personal revolution. Readers are inspired to “go get their more,” by examining a world of endless possibilities and releasing the limiting barriers imposed by themselves and others.
