Outdoor Industry Association – Osprey Achieves 100 Percent Participation in 2010 Bike to Work Challenge – July 06, 2010

July 8, 2010

Osprey Packs, Inc., a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, had their best Colorado Bike to Work Day in the company’s history, with all 29 employees biking to and from work on Wednesday, June 23.

In total, Osprey employees biked 404.2 miles to work and back home. This equals 20.21 gallons of gas saved (based on an average of 20 mpg) and 392 pounds of carbon prevented from entering the earth’s atmosphere (based on 19.4 lbs of emission per gallon and 20 mpg average).

“We’re very proud of our Team Members for their 100 percent participation in this year’s Bike to Work Day event,” said Sam Mix, outdoor marketing manager at Osprey. “We’re excited to keep the bike momentum going at Osprey, and to continue setting an example for other local companies.”

Alpinist.com – Featuring Variant37 – July 1, 2010

July 5, 2010

As its name suggests, the Osprey Variant 37’s greatest asset is its transmutability. In standard mode, this pack will bear a heavy guide load comfortably. Yet, when the approach necessities—the hip belt, frame sheet and lid—become superfluous, it takes only a minute to strip and cinch it down into a simple and light (34 ounces) alpine ascent bag. When I needed the hip belt out of the way of my harness but did not want to dismantle it, the Variant 37’s design allowed me to clip it around the front, through the tool holsters. Its versatility makes it a true ice, rock and ski mountaineering pack.

CyclingNews.com – Featuring Osprey Raptor 10 hydration pack – June 9, 2010

June 30, 2010

Superb pack design and comfort with an excellent bladder to boot. Comfy and well designed.

Osprey pour 35+ years of outdoor pack experience into their versatile Raptor 10 – a superb pack first and foremost, which just happens to have an excellent reservoir, too.

Not surprising given the company heritage, comfort and fit are among the Raptor 10’s best attributes, with a well-ventilated semi-rigid padded back panel that distributes weight evenly across your torso and never feels too hot or stifling.

The mesh main straps are similarly padded and ventilated, and combine with the stretchy sternum strap, broad hip belt and dual compression straps for an ultra-stable and body-hugging fit that moves well with you even on technical terrain.
