Cortez, Colo. – January 2023 Osprey, a Helen of Troy brand, introduces its Fall ‘23 collection, which continues Osprey’s relentless drive to update and refine high-performing products across multiple categories; inspiring adventure of all kinds. While you can expect exciting new product launches across categories, we are delighted to proclaim that travel is back. As the world takes a collective vacation, Osprey is committed to supporting this resurgence in leisure travel by significantly updating major travel lines.
Across travel, we’ve completely overhauled our Sojourn, Shuttle and Porter Series to create the new and expanded Sojourn Series, a unified collection built with protective StraightJacket compression, travel sentry ID tags and internal organisation. This collection includes wheeled travel packs, wheeled duffels and travel packs, designed for travellers whose destination has no limits.
The all-new modern urban Aoede Series launches in lifestyle with four polished around-town silhouettes that offer a daily solution to street-style functionality.
This season also brings improvements and updates in our Soelden/Sopris ski touring pack series such as enlarged ski loops, and brand-new colours in our Glade wintersport series. The entire snow category now features main body fabrics that are bluesign® approved, 100% recycled content and using DWR made without PFAS.
We’ve grown our waterproof family to offer expanded storage options with our new IPX5 Wildwater Dry Bags that are designed to be durable enough for out-of-pack use.
Further this season, we’re looking back to see just how far we’ve come. In Spring 2018, we established our three pillars of sustainability: materials, chemistry and social responsibility. These helped guide us as we embarked on a mission to become a more conscientious and progressive outdoor hardgoods brand. We’ve since seen success in many of the goals we set for ourselves but have no plans on resting. From installing solar panels on Vietnam and European headquarters to using DWR treatments made without PFAS on all main body fabrics. Further, all poly bags are made of 100% recycled material and all paper packaging is FSC-certified or recycled and recyclable. In 2021 we became a bluesign® system partner, marking a significant shift towards textile sustainability throughout our supply chain. As a founding member of the OIA-sponsored Climate Action Corps, we work with companies across the outdoor industry to rise to the challenge of climate change and measure, plan, reduce and share our progress.
