While the Archeon Series packs are technical and versatile with a universally comfortable carry, they’ve been refined with a mountain-chic, minimalist design. Photo courtesy of Osprey.

Osprey’s Archeon backpacks are not only designed impeccably for their intended use backpacking or hiking, but these packs also hold a lot of storage, something that is so essential on a road trip when space might not be at a surplus. Utterly stylish and unapologetically versatile, the Archeon pack features a roll-top closure and a clean silhouette that can just as easily accompany your commute to the coffee shop or carry the essentials for a day hike.

About Osprey

Osprey was founded in 1974, and since then, every design has been approved by the owner and founder, Mike Pfotenhauer. His vision then and the company’s vision now is to “Relentlessly Innovate to Ease your Journey.” Everything Osprey creates is of the highest quality and made sustainably and ethically. As a company, Osprey is committed to improving the welfare of their community and planet. To them, how they make their products is just as important as the actual products.

Osprey is so confident in their product’s quality, and that you will love them, that they have three “product end-of-use programs.” The All Mighty Guarantee Program means you can send any of your damaged Osprey gear back to the company, and they will fix it free of charge. The Osprey Renewed program recycles products that are beyond repair and recycles them into new gear. Their Repair to Share program takes packs that are returned, repairs them, and donates them to youth programs, schools, and groups. These programs keep Osprey products in use and out of landfills, meaning you’ll get enough use to justify your purchase. You will also help the Earth by eliminating unnecessary waste.

Osprey is such a great company from both a sustainability and social standpoint, and their products are amazing! Their recommended Road Trip Essentials list is a great cumulation of some of their coolest products. Check it out for yourself or anyone you may be shopping for this holiday season.
