Osprey packs and luggage have been setting new standards of versatility, usability and really smart design. We spend 4 – 6 months on the road every year, with the office essentially reduced to a carry on bag and Osprey has been our favourite for that for past couple of years.
Now Osprey Packs have broken the mould again with the latest in their hiking series: the Manta AG for men, and the women’s Mira AG packs.
They’re more than just backpacks, the Manta/Mira AG is a versatile hiking companion, built upon Ospreys ground breaking Anti-Gravity™ framework. Anti-Gravitytm is an encompassing back panel of ultra lightweight mesh which separates the contents of the pack from the hiker, for a smoother carry. This design network also includes Osprey’s specially engineered LightwireTM and AirspeedTm features. These have been integrated into the packs to reduce hiker fatigue and optimise weight distribution.
The Manta/Mira AG sports a paper-thin, 3mm Lightwire™ suspension frame, designed to transfer the load from the Biostretch™ harness to the hip-belt.
The pack’s Airspeed™ back panel conforms to the hiker’s hip and lower back, simultaneously reducing resistance when moving and increasing airflow for a seamless trek.
On top of the Anti-GravityTM features, the packs offer a 2.5L hydraulics reservoir with a handy magnetic sternum strap for the bite valve, a Stow-On-The-Go™ trekking pole attachment and dual-zippered hipbelt pockets for easy access to trail-mix. Winning!
Osprey have also included an integrated rain cover system for wetter days, so that you can keep going, no matter the weather. Made from 210D high tenacity nylon, 100D accenting and a high tenacity nylon base, the Manta/Mira AG series from Osprey will always have your back.
