Osprey – A lifetime commitment to quality
Osprey, founded in 1974, was born out of a young Mike Pfotenhauer’s frustration with ill-fitting packs on regular family hiking trips. By the age of 16 he set about making his own pack, and not long later set up a small shop front in Santa Cruz where adventurers, having heard about the packs through word of mouth, would come and get measured for a custom made pack. Ever since, Mike has remained hands on and every single product design bearing the Osprey name has been approved by Mike. The demand for high quality outdoor packs has seen the brand grow and expand their production to meet the needs of a global market, without losing its attention to design detail and quality.
Osprey designs meet the needs of the modern adventure traveller with the customised pack fitting and comfort still being at the core of the design process. Each Osprey product has a unique attention to detail, in its usability and quality, it is intended to see the user through a lifetime of use. So much so, that in 2009 Osprey introduced the All Mighty Guarantee, a lifetime guarantee that means Osprey will repair any damage or defect in its product – whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday. If Osprey is unable to repair the item, it will happily replace it. The All Mighty Guarantee: any product, any reason, any era.
For these reasons Osprey has garnered a cult following around the world. At The Luggage Professionals, we are passionate about offering our customers the required expertise about the Osprey collection. Our staff can help you identify the most suitable product in the range for your needs, and help you fit the pack to your body.
