October 18, 2023
Pro-grade functionality, inclusive sizing and prestigious certified bluesign® Product designations honor a 50-year legacy in cutting-edge pack design
CORTEZ, Colo./OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ –For 50 years, Osprey Packs has been a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance innovative carry solutions for extensive outdoor activities, including backpacking, hiking, biking and running. The brand will mark its golden anniversary in 2024 by dropping a dynamic wave of new products across its technical pack range, honoring boundary-pushing performance. From Pro Series and Extended Fit expansions, to the launch of the light and fast Talon | Tempest Velocity, the brand is helping all adventurers enhance, extend and enjoy their outdoor pursuits. In tandem with its pursuit for quality, Osprey is advancing its holistic sustainability efforts with its 12 core technical product families carrying prestigious certified bluesign® Product designations by spring 2024.
Osprey expands its Pro Series with progressive gear specially engineered for outdoor professionals. The five-piece range offers elevated function and features with unrivaled quality and durability. As most notable seasonal additions, the updated AetherTM | Ariel Pro ($400.00) combines the brand’s most capable, load-bearing suspension with a versatile, simplified bag design to reduce pack weight to a minimum. Boasting a 75L capacity, the AetherTM | Ariel Pro is best suited for bigger mountaineering or backpacking trips, and the toplid, hipbelt pockets and side compression straps are strippable to tune your carry and further reduce weight. The Pro Series also sees a newly designed TalonTM | Tempest Pro. The versatile, multi-sport pack has an all-new updated framesheet and improved sizing across three volumes: 40L ($260.00), 30L ($230.00) and 20L ($200.00). This seasonal iteration is lighter than previous generations with a new, slimmer LidLock that works with more helmets, including climbing and biking. The updated packs have a technical bluesign® approved NanoFlyTM fabric construction, reinforced with triple-grid UHMWPE ripstop, providing outstanding strength and durability.
Talon | Tempest Velocity
With light-and-fast multi-sport versatility, the all-new TalonTM | Tempest Velocity is designed for experienced, active adventurers who want to tackle big pursuits at record paces. The pack pairs the award-winning features of TalonTM | Tempest with a soft-flask compatible, running-vest inspired harness and a uniquely designed backpanel that allows for free movement. The design also allows for up to four inches of torso adjustment to optimize fit, while pockets placed on the chest harness, pack sides and hipbelt allow for quick access to essentials. The TalonTM | Tempest Velocity comes in two volumes for men and women: 30L ($200.00) and 20L ($180.00).
Osprey introduced its Extended Fit (EF) line in 2022 to deliver a more inclusive fit and optimized performance for bigger bodies. Extended Fit enhancements include: extended hipbelts designed to fit up to 70-inch hips, extended shoulder straps, repositioned pockets and longer sternum straps. This season, Osprey will add EF sizes to top-selling technical styles: the Rook | RennTM 65 ($190.00), suited for backpacking; the Raptor | Raven 14 ($175.00), designed for mountain biking; and the run-oriented DuroTM | Dyna LT Belt ($30.00).
Consumer products carrying the certified bluesign® Product label meet strict safety and environmental requirements. They must be made of bluesign® approved materials and produced in a resource-conserving way with a minimum impact on people and the environment. With the spring 2024 collection launch, 19 Osprey pack families, nine accessory categories, and four special edition pack series, will carry the bluesign® Product certification, including best selling technical packs: AetherTM | Ariel, TalonTM | Tempest, Atmos | Aura AG, and Exos | Eja, among others.
The Osprey Packs spring 2024 collection will be available beginning in February 24 at osprey.com and at specialty retailers in over 60 countries worldwide.
