Fabrics & Componentry
Fabrics are at the very heart of Osprey packs. Fabrics are selected to suit the varying environments and challenges of the outdoors, while also keeping sustainability as a foundational aspect of their design. By utilising durable, long-lasting fabrics our packs stay out on the trail for longer and avoid unnecessary landfill waste.
Our range of 100% recycled fabric packs include both post-consumer and post-industrial waste. This means that everything from plastic bottles to excess plastic manufacturing materials have been carefully selected, processed and woven into high-quality, highly-durable fabrics.
This means, for example, that the Arcane series will rescue 10 plastics bottles per pack. By the end of 2020 we rescued over 300,000 plastic bottles from landfill in Europe alone.
By 2022, over 60% of main body materials will use recycled content, with a target of 85%+ by 2023. Whilst over 65% of main body materials will be bluesign® approved, with a target of 80%+ by 2023.

As well as recycled fabrics we have also introduced highly-durable metal componentry. This componentry is built to stand the test of time while also providing the opportunity to be recycled when required.
