Prototype Testing Osprey Packs

One of the many benefits of our location here in Cortez, Colorado is year-round biking, hiking and backpacking. I can drive an hour and a half to test ski packs in Telluride or drive two hours and find myself in the canyons of southern Utah for a day hike or extended backpacking trip. The weekend before last, Osprey held a product testing trip. Eight sales reps from each region of the US were hosted by our CEO, Sales Director, Product Line Manager and myself.

Osprey Hydraulics Team Member Melinda Davie Comes Back To The Tahoe Sierra 100 Ultra Endurance Mountain Bike Race

Having a goal is a good way to start the day. I started Saturday September 11th with the goal to complete the Tahoe Sierra 100 Ultra Endurance Mountain Bike Race. I wasn’t looking to do it in any time specifically, except that the organizer had put a limit of 14 hours on it. I attempted to do this event in 2009 and came very close but did not complete it. I learned a few things through that experience and after this past year of training, planning and competing in a few much shorter races I felt I was ready to tackle the event again.



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