Osprey Stratos Series of Backpacks Video

Kerry: Hi, I am Kerry. Sam: And I am Sam from Osprey Packs here in beautiful southwest Colorado. Kerry: We are trying out our new Stratos packs. And what better testing grounds than the desert canyons near our headquarters. These packs offer ventilated comfort in an all around back country adventure series of packs. Sam: Comfort and fit provide the foundation of every Osprey pack, so let’s start with the suspension. Stratos packs incorporate our award winning air speed suspension. A light wire frame with cross struts supports a contoured mesh back end. Combined with side ventilation openings, your back will stay amazingly cool. The framing also forms the suspension. The structure supports heavier loads while flexing as you move. The Stratos harness is comfortably padded with a breathable spacer mesh surface. Use the stretch webbing to route your hydration hose. A convenient zippered pocket is located on the harness. The Stratos hip belt also features a {?} mesh surface along with large pockets and our efficient {?} bolt closure. Kerry: Now let’s take a look at the different Stratos styles. The Stratos 36 gives you 36 liters or 2200 cubic inches of capacity. It is a top loader with a fixed top pocket with twin zipper pockets and dual vertical compression, a large front zippered pocket and front panel access to the main compartment. The Stratos 34 is 34 liters or 2100 cubic inches. This is a panel loader with a large, zippered front pocket and a top slash pocket with mesh lining. The Stratos 26 is 26 liters or 1600 cubic inches. It is the little brother of the 36 with top loading access. The Stratos 24 is 24 liters or 1500 cubic inches. It is the little sister of the 34 with panel loading access. Sam: Now let’s take a look at the shared features that make these packs great for just about any outdoor adventure: two side mesh woven pockets with inside out compression; upper side compression straps; integrated rain cover and stow on the go trekking pole attachment. The Stratos series of pack comes in three separate torso sizes: small, medium and large, providing custom fit for most people. Kerry and I both wear medium Stratos packs, but, as you can tell, our body types are very different. Kerry: Contour and adjustability is the key to a great harness fit. As you can see, my pack fits just as well as Sam who has got much broader shoulders. Sam: So what size Stratos pack is right for you? Visit the sizing and fitting page at Osprey Packs dot com or watch the sizing and fitting video. Use the table to figure out your correct pack size. Experiment with adjustment in the field. Kerry: Now that we have shown you the latest technology and features of the Stratos pack series, it is time to go exploring the canyons. Sam: Let’s go.
