Sam shares the day to day ups and downs (literally) of riding the EWS tour.
Quality and innovative design since 1974.
Osprey grew from one person’s desire to use and make more comfortable, longer lasting and functionally sound packs.
Over the last forty-something years we’ve stayed true to this ethos as we’ve grown as a company and a brand and our company’s founder, Mike Pfotenhauer, is still the mad hatter leading our designs and innovations.
We’re inspired by and celebrate the desire to explore life with curiosity and passion. We don’t believe that adventure is accessible to few, it’s open to everyone and is found anywhere you have the willingness to look
