We had the chance to meet and interview Mike Pfotenhauer, outdoor adventurist and founder of Osprey Packs. The family-owned company has been in business since 1974 and their well-designed packs serve adventurists across the globe.
Since starting in Santa Cruz, California, the company is now headquartered in Cortez, Colorado with part of the design team in Mill Valley, California and the rest in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Mike regularly travels to each site to ensure fair labor standards and establish face-to-face relationships with the factories he works with. His continued dedication to the environment is evident in the company’s sustainability practices as well. Watch our short video to hear more for yourself!
