Osprey Packs, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, introduces an innovative twist on travel packs with the gender-specific Ozone Duplex for Fall 2018. Delivering solidly on the promise of lightweight and efficient travel, the Duplex combines a capable and comfortable harness and suspension built into a daypack to hold your critical items while a larger externally attached bag holds items you will not need until you arrive at your destination.

“Lighter luggage means you can carry more gear without paying for overages at the counter,” said Erik Hamerschlag, Senior Product Manager, Osprey Packs. “The new Ozone Duplex represents an evolution of convertible carry-on systems, maximizing storage for savvy travelers with one harness and two packs.”

• DAYPACK: The full-size daypack’s LightWire™ frame supports and distributes the pack’s load through the comfortably padded hipbelts while the adjustable shoulder straps provide an excellent fit. Laptops, heavier essentials, valuables and everything you need on the plane stay close at hand in the daypack.

• CARGO BAG: The clothing and gear you need for when you reach your destination stows in the Cargo Bag that conveniently fits in the overhead, maximizing carry-on capacity

In addition to the launch of Ozone Duplex, Osprey updates their industry leading Ozone series of lightweight, rolling luggage with improvements in strength, durability and design. Of note, new patterning optimizes interior space, and the redesigned luggage access opens from the side to allow for greater visibility to contents. Updated internal compression straps secure clothing to prevent wrinkling, while the wide-mouth liquid pocket speeds up trips through security. Available in Ozone 75L/26″, Ozone 42L/21.5″, Ozone 38L/19.5″.
