Osprey Levity Named to Gear Patrol’s 10 Best Outdoor Products of 2018 List

January 16, 2019

Cortez, CO – January 16, 2019Osprey, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions is pleased to announce that the ultralight Levity was included in Gear Patrol’s 10 Best Outdoor Products of 2018 list.

“Most people don’t know that ultralight backpackers — like thru-hikers — often use custom backpacks or ones made by smaller brands you can’t find in gear shops. For mainstream pack makers, the term “ultralight” has mostly been marketing spin. Osprey is dismantling that notion with the Levity, which weighs a mere 1.95 pounds (60-liter capacity, size medium) and doesn’t cut corners on bells and whistles. Ultralight gear just became more readily available,” Gear Patrol.

“We launched the Levity/Lumina series in Spring 2018 with the intension of changing the way people think of super-ultralight packs while also making them more accessible to customers,” said Vince Mazzuca, Marketing Director at Osprey. “We are thrilled that Gear Patrol has recognized the significant efforts our product team put into this series.”

Levity is designed for anyone who appreciates what carrying less can do for their experience, no matter the duration. Osprey’s Levity delivers unmatched comfort, ventilation and load-carrying ability in the ultralight category. Key to the pack design is the strategic integration of complimentary high-performing fabrics including lightweight materials with durable outer fabrics to minimize pack weight without sacrificing durability. Levity is available in 45L ($250) and 60L ($270) as well as the women’s specific Lumina.

Gear Patrol’s 10 Best Outdoor Products of 2018 is online now and is included in the The Best 100 Products of the Year issue on sale through the end of March 2019.
