Osprey Targets the Adventure Traveler with Fall 2016 Convertible Travel Wheels Series

Sojourn60_F16_Harness_SideBack_HoodooRedCortez, COOsprey Packs, a leader in creating top-quality, high-performance, innovative packs to comfortably and efficiently carry gear, is updating their convertible travel wheels series for Fall 2016 with significant changes to both the Sojourn and Meridian Series. The rugged Sojourn Series gets an all new deployable suspension that takes cues from the brand’s award winning Anti-Gravity™ (AG™) suspension while the deluxe Meridian gets a streamlined, quick deploy harness and a fully-featured, ventilated daypack.

“The Fall 2016 Sojourn and Meridian Series are designed for travelers who are ready for anything whether they are hitting the street markets of Vietnam, the dirt trail to their cabin in the Scottish Highlands or the long tile roads of their local airport hub,” said Erik Hamerschlag, Senior Product Line Manager “When the terrain gets too rough and there is still far to go, our wheeled bags’ suspension can be deployed to give you the carry-comfort that you expect from Osprey.”
