Osprey, based in Cortez, Colorado, is a recognized leader in high quality backpacks. They have a wide selection for almost any outdoor activity and provide a lifetime warranty. I’ve owned the Stratos 24 which is ideal for day hikes or multiday treks with light loads. There are many sizes of the Stratos model to fit anyone’s preference. I especially like the back panel which provides much needed ventilation. One feature I found useful when hiking the Inca Trail was the integrated rain-cover to protect the bag and my camera equipment during showers. The seamless hip-belt greatly reduces the strain on the back. This backpack and the entire Osprey selection can be purchased here.

I only recommend luggage and travel clothing that I own and have used for years. I am a stickler for value, so I feature only quality items which are worth the price from reputable brands and merchants. If you would like to discuss luggage and clothing options, contact me here.
