Register and win a Men’s Osprey Backpack!

Congratulations to Cwinn83, the winner of this great pack!

I ordered this backpack for a trip to Iceland that was, unfortunately, cancelled due to the current Pandemic.  When it arrived, I realized that I had ordered the wrong size.  So, some lucky person out there, in the Canada, or the United States, is going to win this brand new Osprey LEVITY 60 backpack.

NOTE: This is a man’s large pack!

The Osprey Levity 60 is the most comfortable and ventilated pack ever made for the lightest loads imaginable. It’s perfect for weeklong, or even month long trips. In fact, it’s probably not the right pack for you. It’s for people who pack lighter, go further, and think smarter. This pack isn’t on Instagram, because phones are too heavy, and views look better in your mind anyway. But if you are one of those maniacal gram-counters, look no further.


Gone are the days where carrying the lightest loads conceivable meant enduring the worst experience imaginable. The Levity/Lumina carry the right loads for the job with comfort never dreamt of until now.


By integrating complimentary high-performing fabrics we ensure this series’ scant weight is matched with incredible durability for adventures that last weeks, months or more.


Superultralight isn’t only for thruhikes, and everyone from driven youthful athletes to reminiscing boomers will appreciate what carrying less can do for their experience, no matter the duration.


Our NanoFly® fabric integrates ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) ripstop and Cordura Nylon, creating an incredibly light fabric with remarkable abrasion resistance.
