About this brand

A couple with Osprey backpacks walking up a rocky hill somewhere in the mountains.
Santa Cruz California 1974. Mike Pfotenhauer sat at his sewing machine with a head full of ideas and a burning passion to build the most innovative backpacks to the highest standard.


One man’s vision has grown into a wide range of Osprey rucksacks and accessories that are being used from the highest mountains to the most remote islands and everywhere between.


With innovation in every strand of each pack and an identity born out of true specialism, Osprey continues that true pioneering spirit today.
