From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Osprey, Inc. is a Colorado-based company that makes backpacks and travel gear. Mike Pfotenhauer and Diane Wren founded the company in 1974. Osprey was one of the first to introduce breathable mesh in their backpack line in 1976. In 2005, Osprey invented a new type of backpack hip belt molding that forms to the shape of the backpack occupant's body. The world's first blind mountain climber to summit Mount Everest, Erik Weihenmayer, used an Osprey backpack, the Aether 60, and is pictured with it on the cover of Time magazine's June 18th, 2001 issue.[1]

Osprey is currently headquartered in Cortez, Colorado.
