Since day one, sustainability has been part of Osprey’s core values — from building the most durable products possible, to launching its All Mighty Guarantee, to introducing high-quality recycled materials and better chemistry. It's what Osprey’s always stood for, because it's the right thing to do.

Osprey's Brand Pillars

Durably Built

Osprey believes it has a responsibility to examine what, how and why it makes the things it does. Osprey continually evolves its process, finding ways to keep its high-quality solutions in use for as long as possible.

All Mighty Guarantee

Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason, free of charge — whether it was produced in 1974 or yesterday. Osprey proudly stands behind this guarantee, so much so that it bears the signature of company founder and head designer, Mike Pfotenhauer.
