co-request
Simple wrapper to the request library for co-like interface (node.js generator based code). You can use it with koa or co
To install simply run:
npm install co-request

Require co first, also it will work on node v0.11.7 and newest only.
You must run node with --harmony flag (--harmony-generators as well)
node --harmony simple.js

Simple example:
"use strict";

let co = require("co");
let request = require("co-request");

co(function* () {
  // You can also pass options object, see http://github.com/mikeal/request docs
    let result = yield request("http://google.com"); 
    let response = result;
    let body = result.body;

    console.log("Response: ", response);
    console.log("Body: ", body);
}).catch(function (err) {
    console.err(err);
});

POST example:
"use strict";

co(function* () {
    let result = yield request({
        uri: "http://google.com",
        method: "POST"
    });
})();

To pipe request you should use small helper (thanks to greim):
function pipeRequest(readable, requestThunk){
  return function(cb){
    readable.pipe(requestThunk(cb));
  }
}

//..and then:

  var value = yield pipeRequest(this.req, request({...}));

All methods of request listed in Request docs
