Osprey Packs, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, introduces the superultralight Levity (men’s) and Lumina (women’s) for Spring 2018. Levity and Lumina deliver unmatched comfort, ventilation and load-carrying ability in this category. Key to the pack design is the strategic integration of complimentary high-performing fabrics including lightweight materials with durable outer fabrics to minimize pack weight without sacrificing durability.
“With Levity and Lumina, it was never about achieving a number on a scale, but instead, finding a solution that is not only light, but effectively carries the loads it’s tasked with,” said Cassie Tweed, design director for Osprey Packs. “Gone are the days where carrying the lightest loads conceivable meant enduring the worst experience imaginable. Levity and Lumina are lighter, stronger, more comfortable and will make you faster on the trail.”
