If you’ve ever hit a trail, biked, or traveled with a backpack, you know that having a good one makes all the difference. Feeling comfortable on the last miles of an ascent or well-ventilated when pedaling through rocky trails makes for more enjoyable adventures. Designed with the wearer’s needs in mind, Osprey backpacks are packed with useful features and built to last.
Comfort and Functionality
Founded in 1974 by an outdoor enthusiast who created custom packs, Osprey has established itself as one of the most well-known outdoor backpack brands around. Their operations are based in Vietnam, where the world’s leading manufacturers are based. Their signature logo can be seen on trails here and abroad, and is synonymous with quality, comfort and functionality.
With features like stow-on-the-go trekking pole attachments, a suspension system for comfort, and an integrated rain cover, I’ve often felt like Osprey packs were anticipating my needs when hiking. Whether heading out for a quick hike or a long haul, they have backpacks for big and small excursions.

Keeping a product around for as long as possible is one of the ways Osprey helps lessen their environmental impact. Beyond being durable, many of the packs are covered by their All Mighty Guarantee, meaning they get repaired free of charge. Packs are also made using recycled materials and bluesign-approved fabrics. Adventure-ready and sustainable—who could ask for more?
