Osprey's New Dual-Function Pack Range
New for autumn 2010 24/Seven daypacks combine technical features with urban-friendly functionality - use on the hill or the bus.
Posted: 17 September 2010
New from Osprey for this autumn 2010 is the 24/Seven range of daypacks which is intended to mix Osprey's build quality and technical design with practical, 'everyday features' to produce packs that can be used both in the outdoors and in an urban environment.
That means the six-strong, panel-loading range have useful technical features including a sternum strap with whistling buckle, walking pole loops, a front stash pocket and realistic carrying capacity – they'll take, say Osprey, the literage on the pack, so a Quantum 34 will accommodate 34 litres of kit.
Then for urban use, you get an MP3 pocket with earphone port, elasticated laptop sleeve with padded base – 15.4” compatible it says here – a mini-organiser in the stash pockets and an internal document sleeve.
The back system combines ridge-moulded foam AirScape backpanels and spacer mesh for simple and light combination.
The six-strong range comes in sizes from 12 to 34 litres and is priced from £35 to £55 – models are Orb 12, Axis 18, Flare 24 and Comet 28, Quasar 30 and Quantum 34.
They look kind of cute too, oops. You can find full details on the Osprey web site at www.ospreypacks.com/Packs/24SevenSeries
