In 2009 Osprey celebrated 35 years of Independent Innovation. Anchored by the design genius of company founder and head designer Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey has long set the standard for comfortably and efficiently carrying your gear. Since 1974, every single Osprey pack design bearing the name Osprey has passed through his hands. Thats a legacy that makes all at Osprey very proud. The range features the popular Osprey Hydraulics Hydration packs through to Osprey Rucksacks and Commuter packs.
