We think it’s great that Osprey is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our National Park Service this summer with this sweet little pack, the Osprey Trip. Osprey has tagged it as a “hiking” pack, but we find it to be a perfect light pack for multi-pitch rock climbs. It’s low profile enough to easily fit in a larger pack if you hiking in a ways with all your kit, but also carries well enough to pack the rack, shoes, harness inside for shorter approaches. Doubling for a great day hiking pack, this a great addition to your pack quiver.
Osprey has been named an official partner of the National Park Foundation as the NPS celebrates its centennial year. As a partner, Osprey has pledged to donate a minimum of $25,000 through the sale of specific packs like this to help the NPF protect more than 84 million acres of National Parks we are so fortunate to enjoy. 5% of the proceeds from the sale of this pack will be donated to the National Parks Foundation.
The Trip 20 is a minimalist top loader with no bells and whistles. It has a comfortable back panel that moves air well with light mesh shoulder straps that allow uninhibited climbing and movement. The simple hydration system works well and a small zippered lids stows essentials for easy access. With the National Park Foundation logo prominent on the lid, you’ll show your support for preserving some of the most special places in the world that are unique to America and our national heritage. Get em while they’re hot and get out and enjoy!
