Osprey Portal Series Gives You On The Go Access To Your iPad
For Fall 2013, Osprey is focusing on the technology that has become integral to your daily life – laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other gadgets. The new Portal Series is designed with access to and interaction with all your electronic devices in mind. Although highly functional, the sophisticated bag designs don’t overtly scream technology, ensuring they better blend in with your daily lifestyle, inside or out.
The Portal Series collection includes seven different styles: the Pixel ($139) flap style daypack, Pixel Port ($119) with direct tablet access, Cyber ($129) panel style daypack, Cyber Port ($99) with direct tablet access, Beta ($129) courier bag, Beta Port ($99) with tablet window, and the Nano Port ($99) vertical shoulder bag with tablet window.
Each of the bags feature plenty of organization pockets for all your gear with separate padded laptop and tablet sleeves, magazine or document sleeves, organizer panel, and scratch-free sunglasses pocket. Many of the Portal Series bags can be worn in multiple ways, using a top padded handle for quick grab and go.

Osprey Portal Series
As tablet use becomes an increasingly ingrained part of personal and corporate life, the new Portal Series from Osprey is designed to provide easy access to, and interaction with, these devices.

That means you’ll be able to shoot of an email before the little green blinky man replaces the “Don’t Walk” sign… all without ever taking the tablet out of your pack. To top it all off, the Portal Series features Another smthe PowerHouse™ Add-On™ that keeps a laptop powerblock, tablet and cell phone cords, battery packs, USB drives or any other electronics accessories organized.
