Things at Osprey move full circle, starting with the people, creating the product and then moving back to the people, for the lifetime of the product.
Our mission is to create innovative high performance gear that reflects our love of adventure and our devotion to the outdoors. We succeed when we meet the demanding expectation of our most discerning customers and they are proud to use our packs.
In 2009 we 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 pack design bearing the name Osprey has passed through his hands. That’s a legacy that makes all of us at Osprey very proud.
