After extensive research and testing, Osprey, a Helen of Troy brand and a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative carry solutions, launches an Extended Fit Program for Spring 2023. This new program, available in four of the brand’s best-selling styles, features a refined design to deliver optimal performance for bigger bodies.

Key design features of Osprey’s Extended Fit Program include:

  • An extended hipbelt that will accommodate up to 70-inch hips and features substantially longer padding to deliver more comfort and effective load transfer
  • Extended shoulder straps that ensure the load is transferred evenly
  • Longer sternum strap that enhances stability and fit while allowing the user to secure the strap easily without restricting breathing
  • Hipbelt pockets that are repositioned as far forward as practical to ensure an easy reach.

The Extended Fit program will be available in Aether/Ariel 65 (backpacking), Volt/Viva 65 (backpacking), Talon 22/Tempest 20 (multi-sport) and Osprey Sportlite 25 (hiking) packs in Spring 2023.
