Backpacking from an Osprey point of view

Backpack innovators show the outdoors off from above.

Screen shot 2014-06-13 at 15.17.34A bit of Friday inspiration here from the guys over at Osprey packs. They’ve got bags for pretty much every outdoor sport you can think of. All of them really well thought out and built to a great standard. They always do well in various gear tests out there.

Anyway, it looks like they’ve got a bit bored in the office, or someone has just had a birthday as they’ve been playing with a drone.

Taking a pun a little bit too far, they’ve managed to film some of their packs in use from an Osprey’s eye view. Shooting from above really gives another element to the scene and really helps to show the environment in its full glory. In a weird way, it’s a bit like what Osprey do with their kit. The bags works so well that they almost disappear into the background, allowing you time to get on with the task of just enjoying being out there and doing it.

There is actually a series of films that Osprey are putting together. The following are just the first three covering backpacking, hiking and mountain biking.

What with the sun beaming down outside it makes us want to shut down the computer for the day and just get out there. Inspirational is probably the right word.
