Osprey, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance innovative carry solutions, introduces the all new Ozone ultralight luggage series that offers cutting edge technology and sustainable build with just the right amount of organization and style. From the patent-pending High Road LT4 diagonal wrap around aluminum frame and buttonless trolley squeeze-release handle, to the monopole add-a-bag system and Travel Sentry ID luggage identification service; these innovations seal Ozone’s position as a leader in the ultralight luggage category.

The Ozone series includes the Ozone 4-Wheel Carry-On 38L/21.5” and the Ozone 2-Wheel Carry-On 40L/21.5” that maximize overhead space, the Ozone Laptop Backpack and the Ozone Carry-On Boarding Bag that take advantage of under seat storage and the Ozone 4-Wheel 85L/30”, a large, ultralight checked bag option.

“Ozone represents a leap forward in lightweight luggage design; reimagining frame construction and materials, new exclusive ultralightweight fabrics, and integrated handles,” said Jim Matthews, senior product line manager, Osprey.

OZONE INNOVATION

  • PREMIUM ALUMINUM FRAME: A revolutionary design with a diagonal wrap-around aluminum support, the lightweight, patent-pending High Road LT4 frame uses the structure of the trolley to support the frame and front wheels.
  • MONOPOLE ADD-A-BAG SYSTEM: Avoid swing around and securely attach a bag to a monopole handle with a combination of flasher loop and backpanel sleeve. Ozone wheeled luggage can carry any bag with a flasher loop, and the soft bags can be used on their own or with any trolley.
  • BUTTONLESS TROLLEY HANDLE: Just squeeze to release this handle, allowing the trolley to be easily extended or retracted as needed without pushing any buttons.
  • TRAVEL SENTRY ID: A luggage identification service is included on each Ozone piece that helps reconnect you with your bag should it become lost.
  • REVERSE COIL COATED ZIPPER: Featuring a new lower profile YKK reverse coil coated zipper. It’s more durable, lighter and more water resistant.
  • RECYCLED NANOFLY® FABRIC: Constructed with 100D high tenacity, recycled robic nylon with 25% ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene ripstop. Tested to be as durable as Osprey’s 1000D fabrics.
