Women's Packs: Fit - Function - Style

Harness

The shoulder harness is designed with thoughtful angle changes and varying padding thickness to create an anatomical fit for a woman’s neck, shoulder and chest. This is balances with optimizing where the tension from the packs’ load is carried. For women, our sternum strap is a key piece in equalizing the pressure across the shoulder harness. The padding used is also specific in order to be more comfortable when carrying a heavy load.

Hipbelt

The hipbelt is designed with thoughtful angle changes and varying padding thickness to create an anatomical fit. The hipbelt is also narrower in height for better comfort so it doesn’t dig into the ribs or upper thigh when scrambling or climbing. Most importantly, women’s hips are more conically shaped with a larger difference between the waist and hip measurements. We sculpt and angle our hipbelts accordingly for comfortable lead transfer and optimal support. Again the padding used is also specific in order to be more comfortable when carrying a heavy load.

Design

The pack’s shape is patterned to be more narrow and with added depth in the right places. This allows greater freedom of movement and increases stabilization by lowering the position of the load to a more optimal center of gravity. As a result, the load is more proportionately supported on the hips and along the structure of the back.

Custom Fit for the Custom You

Almost 90% of Osprey packs are available in multiple sizes to fit a range of torso lengths. Additionally, many styles have interchangeable or adjustable harnesses and hipbelts to further customize fit. To determine torso measurement use an Osprey Pack Sizer at your local Osprey dealer. This measurement starts at the iliac crest which is the top of your hipbones on the side of your body that act like a shelf. From this point, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down. Reference the torso length to match the correct pack size. Reference the “Size?” page for additional information.

Osprey Pack Production

Take a tour of Osprey's design and product development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Opened in 2004 and now employing nearly 30 people, this office allows the independent design and development of each of Osprey's packs. This video provides a glimpse into product conception, prototyping, testing, production, inspection and shipping.

The Kode Series

The Osprey Kode series offers great features, functionality and fit in a backcountry ski pack. Each different pack volume is logically organized, extremely functional, comfortable and is especially designed to help and never hinder all facets of backcountry snow travel.
