   01.11.12

Osprey Packs, Inc. a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear – is redefining what lightweight means in luggage. Channeling the brand’s experience in building lightweight packs and luggage, the Ozone Series roller bags, debuting in Fall 2012, are the lightest, fully featured roller bags on the market.

“As a backpack company we understand the importance of lightweight and we carry this guiding principal into our luggage design,” said Osprey founder, Mike Pfotenhauer. “With Ozone, we are building on our existing lightweight luggage assortment to deliver ultra-light design without compromising durability or features. With a minimalist but robust body and a lighter, redesigned chassis, these ultra-light rollers will set the standard for lightweight performance luggage.”

Built on Osprey’s new HighRoad LT chassis, which is 20 percent lighter than the original HighRoad chassis, Ozone offers a full-featured package with excellent roll, rugged performance and multiple organizational features. The Ozone Series includes three sizes: 28”/80L for extended trips and gear hauling, 22”/46L for general carry-on and 18”/36L for international carry-on.

  •  The new HighRoad LT™ chassis: light, strong and smooth rolling
  •     6001 aluminum frame
