Sizing and Fitting of your OSPREY pack
Fit is the key to pack performance. Take the time to get it right. If you're buying from our online store measure yourself carefully and don't hesitate to email or call customer service if you have questions. Once you have selected the pack model that meets your needs, you will need to choose the right size.
Step 1 - Pack Sizing
Most of our Opsrey packsvare available in multiple sizes to fit a range of torso lengths. To find your torso length, have a friend measure your back along the spine (as shown in the illustration) from the level of your iliac crest (the top of your hipbones) to your C7 (the knobby bone at the base of your neck).
Use the charts below for different osprey models to determine your pack and sizes.
How to pack your pack:
Be sure to use the red internal compression strap. Also, compress the contents solidly using the external compression straps. You want the pack to adopt a tall, thin profile. Remember to maintain side-to-side balance as well – a pack that leans over to one side places excessive pressure on your spine and irritates your shoulders. Make a point of getting as much gear inside the pack as possible. Odds and ends strapped on all over the outside of the pack wreak havoc with balance, especially if they are free to swing around. Finally, the top pocket has a tendency to become the repository for many, many small items that add up to significant weight and often make the pack distinctly top-heavy – be careful!
Since Osprey was founded in 1974, every single product design bearing the Osprey name has passed through the hands of owner and founder Mike Pfotenhauer, undergoing relentless scrutiny. From stitching the first lines of custom-fitted packs, to meticulously designing innovative products with intuitive features, to forging personal relationships with the sewing operators who construct the packs, Mike has been the unbreakable thread that makes Osprey a company like no other.
To celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2009, Osprey launched the All Mighty Guarantee, an enhancement of a lifetime warranty that was already one of the most robust in the industry. Free of charge, the company 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.
