Osprey, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance innovative carry solutions, is launching a new category of IPX4-6 rated waterproof, non-submersible packs for Spring 2022. Arcane™ Waterproof is built to address the unique needs of active urban commuters while Transporter® Waterproof meets the technical demands of multisport outdoor enthusiasts.

“Built for people who rely on their bag rain or shine to keep contents protected, our new Arcane Waterproof  and Transporter Waterproof offer comfortable carry, simple organization, and reliable protection for whatever conditions come your way,” said Rosie Mansfield, Product Line Manager, Osprey.

The Arcane Waterproof series, available in 18L ($250) 25L ($280) volumes, is a sustainable, everyday solution with a stylish aesthetic that masks its technical prowess and waterproof protection. The hybrid opening system transforms from a roll top design with metal hook closure to a flap with secure magnetic closure. The AirScape® backpanel constructed from lightweight, mesh-covered 3D-foam backpanel allows for close to body stability. In keeping with Osprey’s commitment to sustainability, the main body fabrics are bluesign® approved, GRS-certified recycled with PFC/PFAS-free DWR. Commute-specific features include: an internal laptop sleeve, blinky light attachment, reflective graphics and external zip pocket. The larger volume, Arcane Waterproof 25, is equipped with a removable “work caddy” that fits most 16-inch laptops, with document sleeve, zip stretch mesh compartment and organizer.

The lightweight, sustainable Transporter Waterproof series meets the technical needs for any adventure whether by foot, bike, board or boat. The AirScape backpanel constructed from lightweight, mesh-covered 3D-foam allows for close to body stability and provides comfort dry or wet. Like the Arcane Waterproof, Transporter Waterproof’s main body fabrics are bluesign® approved, GRS-certified recycled with PFC/PFAS-free DWR. Equipped with a waterproof roll top buckle closure, reflective graphics and blinky light attachment, the Transporter Waterproof series is available in three volumes: Transporter Waterproof 30 ($180), Transporter Waterproof 25 ($150) and Transporter Waterproof 18 ($120).
