Osprey has a long history with the CORDURA® brand team and is a strong supporter of CORDURA® brand fabrics. In spite of the rumor that “big packs” are a dying breed in this industry, the Argon/Xenon, with the superior 315d CORDURA® fabric, has doubled in sales compared to the preceding Cresecent/Luna series it replaced. This just goes to show that given super-functional design, great looks and solid materials that are lightweight, outdoor enthusiasts are still demanding these larger pack styles. At Osprey, we pride ourselves on making great packs for all end-users, and we feel that CORDURA® fabric plays a key role in our success.
