About The Brand: Osprey

[caption id="attachment_10936" align="aligncenter" width="356"]© Osprey 2015 © Osprey 2015[/caption] Normally with our about the brand blogs we have a short paragraph talking about the brand's history and what made them stand out from other brands, so we started working on Osprey. The information we found was overwhelming! Osprey have released a series called "40 years in the making" which has so much information about Osprey that our blog would be very long so we thought we would just compile all the videos for you to watch in all their glory. So grab some popcorn and enjoy...

That's the history of Osprey, now lets start talking about our top 5 favourite Osprey products:

Atmos AG 50

Atmos AG 50 The reason why we love the Atmos AG 50 so much is mainly due to its brilliant design and the anti-gravity system. The AG system is a 3D suspended mesh down back panel that helps you carry heavy loads for long periods of time, making it ideal for the long distance backpacker. It also features an exofoam harness, removable top lid, flap jacket cover when the top lid has been taken off and a Stow-On-The-Go temporary trekking pole attachment.

Aether 70

Aether 70 The Aether 70 uses Osprey's AirScape back panel system for brilliant ventilation, the back panel is also pre-curved to give an amazing fit fresh out of the box. The Aether also features a J-zip front panel access so you can retrieve things quickly that are at the bottom of the pack. The Osprey pack also features twin ice axe loops, adjustable torso length, removable top lid, stretch mesh side pockets and InsideOut compression.

Kestrel 38

Kestral 38 After a spacious day pack with tonnes of features? Then look no further than the Kestrel 38. This pack features the Osprey AirScape system for increased breathability, has adjustable torso length, twin zipped hip pockets, two ice axe loops and a sleeping bag base compartment. The Kestrel 38 is a great pack for someone who is getting into winter walking or is trying to lighten their load when wild camping.

Talon 22

Talon 22 The Talon 22 from Osprey is a great day pack and is a personal favourite of ours here at Simply Hike. The Talon 22 has tonnes of features like the Stow-On-The-Go pole storage system, side compression straps, reflective graphics (which are handy when walking in low viz), LED bike light attachment point and many other cool features as well. The Talon 22 is great if you're hill-walking, scrambling, running or just riding your bike. It ticks most boxes when it comes to any outdoor activity.

Farpoint 40

Fairpoint 40 The last Osprey bag we want to talk about is the Farpoint 40. This is a great size pack if you're looking to go lightweight backpacking but in comfort. This Osprey pack features a padded laptop sleeve, "straight jacket" compression, removable shoulder straps, internal mesh side pockets, zip and clip daypack attachment and also has an internal compression system. With all those features it's no surprise that the Farpoint 40 is a very popular pack.
