Osprey founder Mike Pfotenhauer learned backpacking from his dad and sewing from his mom. Lucky for us, he combined those experiences and began Osprey in 1974 as a small business in Santa Cruz, California.
Today, Osprey has grown into a world-renowned purveyor of technically stunning backpacks, daypacks, hydration packs and waistpacks for every outdoor activity you can dream up. And Mike still scrutinizes every Osprey design before it becomes a pack.
Planning a camping & hiking or backpacking adventure? With dozens of Osprey packs to choose from, you're sure to find the one that's just right for you. Osprey pioneered women-specific backpacks years ago, and now offers hard-working kids' packs, too.
When you're ready to break new trail, Osprey is ready to go with you. Indulge your passion for cycling, climbing, skiing and snowboarding with activity-specific packs that are continually refined through research and testing.
Osprey brings that same laser focus to its line of luggage & travel gear, including wheeled luggage, sturdy laptop bags and user-friendly day bags and packs.
At REI you'll find top-rated and top-selling gear from Osprey, plus plenty of sale & clearance deals and bargains.
