Osprey Backpacks are Goated?


Osprey Pack Packs

Humans invented a way to carry impeccable items, that is more innovative than Kangoroo pouches, aka the backpack! I am a massive fan of how backpacks distribute hefty weight over your body and make it feel minunscule!

Osprey hit the market in 1974 when Mike Pfotenhaue founded the business in Santa Cruz, California. His inspiration was pure; he sought to build backpacks at a higher standard because he was disappointed in the fit of the backpacking equipment he purchased. His mom taught him to sew his first backpack, and ever since he has been hard at work creating the best backpacks on the market. He soon built the reputation as a premium backpack maker, and in 1994 moved operations to Colorado and hired his first employees.

After the move to Colorado, he has led his business to the forefront of producing exquisite backpacks. He  went abroad for four years to establish operations and factories around the world. Mike Pfotenhaue still leads the way in innovation excellence as still being the head designer.

I personally have owned two Osprey backpacks and adore them both. The first one was a Skarab 24, which I have owned for six plus years, and the second being a Manta 34, which I was gifted at Christmas. The Skarab I used for work, school, hiking, snowmobiling, fishing, and all other pursuits. I wore it out, but it took a lot of abuse for years, and I couldn’t be happier with the quality. I look forward to using the Manta a vast amount in the future and continue to use the Skarab from time to time. I highly recommend anyone looking for a quality backpack to check out Osprey.
