Founded in California in 1974, Osprey packs are worn on the highest mountains to the remotest islands and everywhere in between. In addition to creating top-quality packs, the Osprey team is focused on becoming the most progressive, transparent and sustainable outdoor hardgoods brand in the world.
From raw materials and chemistry benchmarks, to progressive factory code of conduct agreements and repair programmes that extend a product’s end of life, Osprey is looking at every aspect of their business to ensure they leave as little trace as possible. Osprey is dedicated to creating innovative, high performance, sustainable gear that reflects the brand’s love of adventure, devotion to the outdoors and steadfast resolve to leave the world better than they found it.
As well as utilising decades of pack expertise Osprey also turn to their sponsored Ambassadors & Athletes out in the field for prototype testing. These dedicated professionals rely on their equipment in some of the harshest and most challenging environments, pushing themselves and the packs to their limit. The materials used, the features chosen, have to meet the needs of these environments and support these athletes every step of the way.
Used worldwide, bluesign® is a system that manages the impact textile production has on chemicals, people, factories and our environment. Materials carrying the bluesign®-approved label meet strict ecological and toxicological requirements. Osprey are incorporating as many bluesign®-approved fabrics as possible and submitting materials to third-party labs for analysis and spot checking.
