Cortez, CO – Jan 8, 2015 – Whether it’s backcountry skiing in British Columbia or trekking in Nepal, reaching these adventures involves dragging bulky gear through airports, train stations, bus stations and ultimately down some gravelly dirt road. To answer those travel adventure needs, Osprey introduces the newly streamlined Shuttle Series for Fall 2015. Versatile, light and stable, these rolling duffels are the benchmark for top tier gear hauling performance.

“We may not all be leading expeditions to the other side of the world but travel for many of us involves a wide range of gear-intensive activities,” said Erik Hamerschlag, Product Line Manager, Osprey Packs. “The updated Shuttle Series offers lightweight but burley rolling duffels that can adapt to the adventure and the gear it carries.”

Key design features include a combination of padded sidewalls and Osprey's time tested StraightJacket™ to provide security and protection for gear in transit. The StraightJacket system uses a front panel compression strap to produce varying levels of compression to secure the load and add stability even when the pack is not full. Osprey 16" HighRoad™ Chassis boasts extra large sealed bearing wheels for added stability.

Additional feature highlights include:
• Top zippered pocket for easy access to liquids and valuables
• StraightJacket™ Compression with padded sidewalls to secure gear
• Low profile padded carry handles on top and sides
• Large access panel zip to main compartment with lockable zippers
• Rear panel magazine pocket with ID Card window
• Large collapsible zippered lower compartment to separate gear – ideal for wet gear, boots and hardware.
• Tuck away companion piece attachment buckle to attach day pack or duffel
• Large zippered rear panel pocket with lower drain hole
• Large internal zippered mesh front panel pocket
• Dual extra wide internal compression straps
• Full length internal mesh side pocket
• Full length internal fabric side pocket
• Internal rear panel zippered mesh pocket

Osprey Packs
Independent since 1974 and still anchored by the design genius of company founder and owner, Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey Packs has long set the standard for creating innovative, high quality gear carrying equipment. The collection includes packs and bags designed to help adventurers enjoy their outdoor, biking, active everyday and travel pursuits.

The location of company headquarters in Cortez, Colorado, near the rugged San Juan Mountains on the edge of desert canyon country, provides a constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for Osprey products. Osprey also maintains a product development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, near the factories where they manufacture their products, ensuring face-to-face relationships and transparency with their suppliers. In 2009, Osprey opened a design office in Mill Valley, California, a hub of design talent and the birthplace of mountain biking. All three of these offices play a crucial role in creating Osprey gear that lasts a lifetime.

Osprey’s customers identify with the brand in many ways, including the product lifetime All Mighty Guarantee, category leading sales, worldwide distribution, dynamic social media communications and content, a strong commitment to the environment and partnerships with inspiring and interesting organizations. Above all, the brand encourages and maintains a direct line of communication on product performance, durability and functionality, which is then incorporated and reflected in every future Osprey pack.

Every Osprey product reflects the company’s commitment to protect the wild places its customers love to explore. For more information, visit www.ospreypacks.com.
