Packing in the Streets of… Portland!

Osprey's social media mavens, Anna and Emily of Under Solen, get silly at the Portland's Saturday Farmers Market.

When summer hits in Portland, there are plenty of reasons to pull yourself out of bed early. The city’s bustling farmers market is one of our favorites. Keep the pack empty to fill with fresh goodness, throw a reusable mug full of coffee into your side pocket and you’re ready to go.

Packing in the Streets

We know our Osprey fans love to travel of all kinds, from venturing to foreign places to exploring local neighborhoods. That’s why we launched Packing in the Streets, a brand new column from Osprey Packs. Whether you’re packing in the streets of your neighborhood or along the rugged cliffs of Cinque Terre, if you have a good story, we want to hear about it!

Keep it to a short travel guide (approx. 400-600 words) of a city or neighborhood. We’ll be posting selected articles once a month. Please send your submission to blog[at]ospreypacks[dot]com.

Not only will you get a little fame by being featured on the Osprey blog, but if we published your piece, you’ll score a Vector 25, perfect for your next adventure! So get to submitting!


Whether your pack was purchased in 1974 or yesterday, Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge.
