Osprey, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance innovative carry solutions, is launching a new category of waterproof duffels for the Fall 2022. The Transporter WP Duffel with waterproof submersible (IPX7) technology meets the technical demands of multisport outdoor enthusiasts while the Arcane WP Duffel with waterproof non-submersible (IPX6) technology is built to address the unique needs of active, urban commuters. In keeping with Osprey’s commitment to sustainability, the main body fabrics are bluesign® approved, GRS-certified recycled with PFC/PFAS-free DWR.

“Built for people who rely on their bag rain or shine to keep contents protected, our new Transporter WP Duffel and Arcane WP Duffel offer comfortable carry, simple organization, and reliable protection for whatever conditions come your way,” said Erik Hamerschlag, senior product manager for Osprey.

The waterproof submersible (IPX 7) Transporter WP Duffel is the ultimate expedition gear-hauler. Be it whitewater rafting, diving expeditions or river camping, this duffel is ready to go anywhere water protection is paramount. The durable YKK AquaSeal zipper provides quick, wide access to gear and is completely waterproof when fully zipped and internal compression straps help secure the contents and take pressure off the zipper to ease operation. Available in 40L ($300) 70L ($340) 100L ($380) volumes.

Designed for the traveler and everyday commuter, the Arcane WP Duffel is the ideal daily companion whether it’s being slung over a shoulder, used as a backpack or strapped to the back of a motorcycle or bike. Multiple lash points make it easy to attach the bag on a roof, motorbike or cargo bike and because of the waterproof non-submersible (IPX 6) technology it will resist heavy water spray from all directions. The breathable air mesh backpack straps make it comfortable to carry rain or shine. Available in 40L ($230) 65L ($260) volumes.

The Transporter and Arcane WP Duffels join the previously announced  Transporter Roll Top WP pack series (IPX 6 rating – Waterproof Non-Submersible) and Arcane Roll Top WP pack series (IPX 4 rating – Waterproof Non-Submersible) to deliver a robust waterproof pack and duffel offering for the Fall 2022 season.
