At Osprey, right outside the front door, the mountains just outside Bozeman beckon. It's this 18-million-acre laboratory where they test their designs and inspire ideas.
Since Osprey was founded in 1974, every single product design has passed through the hands of owner and founder Mike Pfotenhauer, who created his first backpack at age 16.
Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge – whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday. If we are unable to perform a functional repair on your pack, we will happily replace it. We proudly stand behind this guarantee, so much so that it bears the signature of company founder and head designer, Mike Pfotenhauer.
- In Santa Cruz, California, the young entrepreneur opened a retail shop in the front of his rental house where backpackers and travelers came for custom-fit, made-to-order packs constructed by Mike himself.
- Osprey is proud to incorporate recycled and bluesign®-approved materials into their products — it helps keep harmful chemicals out of our environment while maintaining quality and performance.
- Integral to the Osprey brand is the All-Mighty Guarantee, designed to extend a product's life. They will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge — whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday.
