Osprey Packs Atmos 65
This “zero gravity” backpack has an insane suspension and weight distribution system so it feels like your carrying almost nothing (even if you decide to bring all that booze).

Kim Havell says she started her ski career as an alpine ski coach in the Telluride valley. From there, she gradually made the transition into freeskiing, climbing and ski mountaineering. Today, Kim says she has skied on all 7 continents – with first descents on 4 – and explored over 50 countries…Gear Institute caught up with her to find out a little more about her gear needs when out adventuring.

Gear Institute: Sounds like safety is job one for much of your gear—that’s something we like to see. Beyond those items, what do you carry? And more specifically, you get exposed to a ton of gear from sponsors—what items from those supporters do you really love?

Havell: I love my Adventure Medical Kit first aid kits. They are light, well-thought-out kits designed specifically for outdoor needs. I load everything into one of my Osprey Packs—the size and model depends on my specific plans, but they have a pack ideal for nearly every adventure.

May 11th through May 15th is National Bike to Work Week 2015. It is an opportunity to celebrate the power of the bicycle, the many benefits it provides, the packs that make bike commuting fun and, best of all, a chance to win a CLIF Bar prize pack!

For packs, I love the Osprey Momentum . This is an Osprey product so there’s no question on its comfort or functionality.

Another great pack from Osprey making the lineup is the Spin 32 . It comes in two sizes and the reason I like this pack is because it has zippered side pockets that you can actually access without completely taking the pack off.

ABC10Up.com – Groundbreaking Technology Revolutionizes Backpacks – May 11, 2015

May 11th, 2015

With summertime just around the corner, many U.P. residents will be heading outdoors to spend some time admiring Mother Nature.

For those people who intend to spend their days living out of a backpack, it’s important to have the right ‘pack’ on your ‘back.’ Backpacks come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and prices. In the end, the most important thing to do when buying a backpack is making sure that it fits your body properly.

“We have a special way to measure everyone that comes in to give them the proper size and then we can start looking at different Osprey products,” said Luke Olson of Osprey Packs. “We do have a product for everyone, but the most important thing that we emphasize is how the backpack fits. We want to make sure that it’s properly fit for every person that walks out the door.”

There’s no need for women to borrow a guy friend’s backpack for a trip when women-specific backpacks are a better choice for lightening the load while remaining comfortable. The Osprey Aura AG Backpack incorporates a seamless, ventilated suspension system that helps provide stable load transfer while also remaining comfortable. An adjustable harness allows you to change the torso length of the pack easily, and a Fit-on-the-Fly hip belt extends to accommodate different hip sizes. Packs come in 50-liter and 65-liter sizes, so you choose the one that fits your outdoor style best. The zippered sleeping bag compartment has a drop-down divider, providing easy access to contents. That comes in handy when you remember that your flask is at the bottom.

Members of Osprey Packs upper management, sales staff, city officials and the Ogden-Weber Chamber of Commerce made their way to the entrance of the company’s new distribution center during a lull in the rainstorm on Wednesday.

With a snip of oversized scissors, the group marked the official opening of the company’s latest facility, in Business Depot Ogden.

Osprey Packs, a manufacturer of high-performance outdoor and travel packs, opened a new 108,000-square foot warehouse in March.

I have worn it in the shown configuration and it’s doable. You tuck the backup battery in to your pack, in this case I was wearing the Osprey Rev 12 running pack, and let the cord dangle from your wrist. It’s not pretty, but you can definitely tell that the engineers who designed this actually thought about this problem and came up with a reasonable solution that no other brand has accomplished as cleanly.

The 75-Word Endorsement: Osprey Syncro 10 Pack

I’m not a fan of frills. The cords, the straps, the bungees—it’s all too much. I’m going for a bike ride, not a two-month hike on the PCT. This Osprey pack doesn’t play. Every doodad has an actual purpose, whether it’s locking your helmet down on stops or smuggling wine into festivals with the massive 85-ounce hydration vessel. (Not that I’ve ever done that.) It’s a small pack, but it packs some punch. (Or wine.)

CortezJournal.com – Osprey CEO: ‘Scrappiness’ Key – May 4, 2015

May 4th, 2015

Osprey Packs’ decision to move its distribution center and 18 employees from Cortez to Ogden, Utah, last year caught many off guard, but as CEO Tom Barney explained to Montezuma County business and government leaders on April 29, it was a strategic decision that allowed it further invest the business’ growth overall and in its Cortez headquarters.

“Southwest Colorado is simply not a distribution hub for the U.S. We needed interstates, airports, FedEx,” said Barney at the annual Montezuma County Economic Development Association meeting.

The change positioned Osprey’s domestic fulfillment near the national rail network, which allowed the company to better fill shipments to its retailers in more environmentally friendly way. It also places distribution in a transportation hub while focusing most other company functions in Colorado…

This year to help with their big sale, Down Wind Sports brought in an expert who deals specifically with backpacks. The store was able to get an employee from Osprey to Marquette for the weekend.
Osprey has backpacks for every kind of outdoor adventure.

“This is a perfect opportunity to get all of your questions answered,” said Bill Thompson, Co-Owner of Down Wind Sports. “Osprey Backpacks makes some killer packs. They’re custom moldable, so they’re one of the few companies in the industry that does that.”

“Down Wind is one of our favorite retailers,” said Luke Olson, the Midwest sales representative for Osprey. “When we heard about their yearly sale that goes on, we decided to come out and team up wit them. Obviously we are showcasing our products, our backpacks, but these weekends are more about education for us. Educating the customer, answering all of their questions, giving them that expert pack fit that really allows them to enjoy their time out on the trail.”
