Osprey: Celebrating 25 Years of Women's Fit Press Release

The innovation of comfort and performance should never be met with a 'one size fits all' approach.

It's for this reason that Osprey has been expanding the female specific pack range for 25 years, meeting the need for ergonomically designed packs and changing specifications to suit the female form.

Our women's packs feature a backsystem that has been specifically designed to provide an optimum fit for a female body, offering unparalleled levels of comfort and support.

Here's how…

1. Narrower Shoulder Width

The shoulder harness is proportioned and designed with graded padding thickness to create a specially designed fit for a woman's neck, shoulder and chest.

2. Ergonomically Shaped Harness

The ergonomically shaped harness is contoured to sit around the side of the body, creating a more comfortable women's specific fit.

3. Shorter Torso Length

The packs are designed to be shorter, narrower and with added depth in the right places to allow greater freedom of movement and stabilisation.

4. Specially Designed Hipbelt

We sculpt and angle our hipbelts to better suit a female hip shape for optimal support. The conical design sits comfortably and prevents rubbing on the ribs or thigh.

We have female specific packs across our whole range to suit all activities.



The iconic, women's specific hiking pack, Tempest, receives stylish update with a new striking colour; Chloroblast Green. Built for comfort and versatility whilst day-hiking, the Tempest's backsystem offers and impressive women's specific fit, with an ergonomically shaped hipbelt, harness, yoke and backpanel.

Kyte has a female optimised fit meaning carrying heavier loads can be achieved without compromising comfort.

Our famed travel backpack, the women's specific Fairview is the perfect travelling companion that features the comfort and benefits of a backpack with the ease of packing and versatility of a suitcase.

"The new Raven 10 is the perfect pack for a quick local ride or short enduro race. Its big enough to carry the essentials and still feels like a slimline small pack to wear. I love the waist strap pockets for keeping the tools and food I want to access quickly." Tracy Moseley
